• High performance architecture – Web pages are served many
times faster (6 Mbit/sec transfer rate) than similar products.
• Multi-user support – Multiple, simultaneous connections enable
each IP Link device to support many concurrent users and improve
system throughput by sending information in parallel.
Dual Scaled Outputs
Two identical, scaled outputs are available on 15-pin HD and BNC
connectors. A total of 59 output scan rates are available from VGA
(640 x 480) to UXGA (1600 x 1200) resolution, as well as HDTV at
720p, 1080i, and 1080p.
