Smart-AVI, Inc. Introduces Its Aggressively-Priced DVNET-8P Multimedia Switcher

Unit is the First True High-Resolution Video, Audio and USB Device Switcher of its Kind Within the Marketplace Priced Below $1,000.00

Burbank, CA, January 21, 2010 --( Smart-AVI, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the fields of digital signage content creation, management and delivery solutions through hardware and software, announces the release of a new 8-port switcher – the DVNET-8P – that allows users to share a DVI-D monitor, up to 8 PCs or Macs, stereo audio and USB 2.0, 1.1 and/or 1 devices seamlessly.

Smart-AVI’s DVNET-8P is an aggressively-priced switching unit that offers a flexible solution to sharing multiple computers (PC or Mac), audio and/or USB devices such as printers, keyboards, flash drives and/or mice between 8 CPUs easily and affordably – as the only unit of its kind within the market to be priced below $1,000.00.

“Our DVNET-8P is a great product in that it gives system architects the flexibility to switch up to eight computers, whether PC or Mac, as well as multiple audio and USB devices such as printers or keyboards over one DVI-D monitor,” said Albert Cohen, president and CEO of Smart-AVI, Inc. “This offers the perfect cross-platform solution for users that need to access CPUs from remote locations such as recording studios, factory assembly floors, or simply in an environment where only key personnel would have direct access to the CPUs themselves. This is all shared by the touch of a button over a high-res monitor quickly and easily – which is what we strive for with all Smart-AVI products.”

“In addition to being simple to use,” added Cohen, “we have become the first company to offer this type of unit for less than one thousand dollars. This makes the DVNET-8P an incredibly strong value to our customers. Not only is the unit dynamic and extremely powerful for signal switching, it’s priced several hundred dollars lower than similar products offered by our competitors.”

There are multiple ways to switch between active ports when using the DVNET-8P: manually, RS-232 or optional infrared remote commands.

The DVNET-8P is a versatile solution that has many applications, from medical facility use to secured or even harsh environments where the CPUs being accessed need to be in a separate location. The cross-platform capability makes switching between PCs and Macs an important attribute within companies that use both for design as well as operational purposes.

Suggested retail price of the Smart-AVI DVNET-8P is $999.00.
