The votes are in and Atlona Technologies walks away as the CEDIA Home Tech Innovation Contest winner, presented by HomeToys.com. Atlona’s entry of the 7” HD Testing Monitor was voted on by HomeToys.com readers. The contest had 24 entrants and garnered well over 2000 reader votes with 811 of those going to Atlona. The solutions based manufacturer of Audio Video accessories successfully showcased the 7 inch HD Testing Monitor that every major installer and integrator has been waiting for at CEDIA 2010. Unlike many other monitors available, the DIS7-PROHD does not limit its potential by segregating its testing uses to one specific format. While previous units similar to it have only HDMI or DVI to test recent additions to existing installation projects, Atlona has realized that there are many more applications integrators and installers face other than digital formats. As a result, the DIS7-PROHD can test all digital formats, as well as VGA and Component. An additional function allows users the ability to view signal information such as HDCP compliance, Resolution and Frequency, Digital format, and Audio information. The AT-DIS7-PROHD also features an EDID learning function that allows this unit to virtually copy the extended display identification data from any HDTV to accurately mimic that TV for testing purposes. Not only can video be viewed in exact representation, but built in speakers have been added for audio as well. To meet the ever-growing trend, 3D Capability will also be available for those in need.
Portability is a necessity for any install; therefore a battery pack will be available to travel with this 7 inch monitor to spec out different locations of a project site. Multiple control options including manual as well as IR Remote will increase accessibility to test with this monitor or verify audio and video settings on remote displays. 7 inch monitors alone, without these added and essential accessories, can cost anywhere up to $800. With the purchase of that as well as additional testing equipment, users will be forced to spend more money than one would care to. This unit is available for well under the price of that normal 7” HD monitor. This new unit was a Finalist in the CEPro Best Awards and took home the Custom Retailer Exc!te Award at CEDIA 2010. With the most recent acquisition of the Hometoys.com’s CEDIA Home Tech Innovation Award, the DIS7-PROHD remains the perfect way for installers and integrators to say goodbye to wasting valuable time and money, ripping apart walls and ordering multiple testing equipment in order to trouble-shoot install issues.
