Celebrating their 15 Year Anniversary, Aurora introduces the DXW Series of HDBaseT Wall Plates. All three units (DXW-2, DXW-2E & DXW-2EU) are 2-gang multi-input Decora® style wall plates with HDBaseT CAT extension. Its ability to convert VGA (YPbPr, S-Video, Video) with audio to HDMI locally and transmit the signal up to 600ft sets these units apart from the competition.

Sources are selectable via auto-sense, front panel selection buttons or remotely via RS-232 commands sent through the matching receiver device (DXE-CAT-RX, DXM Matrixes, etc). In addition, there is a LAN port (Models DXW-2E & DXW-2EU) for connection to the network without requiring a separate CAT cable. The DXW-2EU has two USB ports for powering USB devices and transmitting 480Mbps up to 280ft independently to a different location. DXW Wall Plates are Made in the USA and come in Black and White. Units will be shipping March 2013.
