The package includes an Altinex TNP128 Tilt 'N Plug Jr. interconnect box, a VP500-100 HDMI to VGA converter, and an MX2106AV 2x1 auto-switcher for integrating a combination of analog and digital equipment into an easy-to-use, versatile AV system in a presentation facility where a computer's output type is unknown or varies, according to the company.

The Altinex TNP128 Tilt 'N Plug Jr. interconnect box incorporates a female VGA (15-pin) connector, an HDMI 1.3 connector, a female 3.5 mm audio jack, an RJ-45 Cat-6 Ethernet port, a a grounded, 90V to 120V AC power connector. The RJ-45 port makes it possible to gain access to data on a corporate network, while the integrated power outlet means the user doesn't need to search for a plug.

Altinex also makes the customizable TNP128C Tilt 'N Plug Jr. interconnect box, which facilitates over twenty-seven different Keystone snap-in options in lieu of the Ethernet port. Bezels for these tabletop interconnect units include a black anodized/matte finish and a brushed aluminum anodized finish.

"The new SP300-100 is the perfect package for integrating a combination of older, analog equipment with today's newer digital products," said Phil Hale, Altinex vice president of sales and marketing, in a statement. "It not only provides complete analog-digital integration, it offers contractors an upgradeable, drop-in solution to existing analog-only Altinex tabletop systems." Pushing down on the front of the top cover causes its latching mechanism to release, enabling the pneumatic spring to raise the unit into position where it's ready to accept connections.

Working in the background, the Altinex VP500-100 HDMI to VGA converter receives an HDMI signal from the TNP128 and converts the audio and video feeds before passing them on to the Altinex MX2106AV 2x1 auto-switcher. The Altinex MX2106AV outputs the analog audio and VGA signals to the audio system and projector or video display.

The SP300-100 A/V Connectivity Package also includes a 3-foot VGA cable, a 3-foot, 3.5 mm stereo audio cable, plus mounting hardware.

The package is scheduled to ship in August for and MSRP of $1,050.
