Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to introduce the TNP461 Tilt ’N Plug® International Tabletop Interconnect Box. Designed for mounting into tables, podiums, or other furniture as part of an AV presentation system, the new TNP461 is an international model with a universal power connector designed to accommodate multiple countries. As a pre-configured, compact hybrid interconnect solution that includes audio, network, USB and video ports, the TNP461 makes connecting a laptop computer or similar device into a room’s AV presentation system quick and easy.
The new Altinex TNP461 interconnect box ships with a standard top and bezel offering a high quality matte black finish. Other finishes or special bezel configurations are available upon request. The standard configuration incorporates VGA and HDMI® video connectors (one each), a 3.5mm audio connector, one USB port, and a universal power receptacle for the user input. The universal power receptacle is connected to a supply side cable terminated in an IEC60320 C14 connector, with a cable length of 1.5 feet.
As a pre-configured, compact hybrid interconnect solution, all signals pass through the TNP461’s input plate directly to cables on the underside of the table with no intervening circuitry. The use of additional Altinex Signal Management Solutions such as computer video interfaces, distribution amplifiers, and switchers may be easily integrated with this unit to facilitate a myriad of AV system configurations.
The TNP461 interconnect box’s input plate is accessed by pushing down on the top cover. The unit then auto-tilts open with assistance from an internal spring. Once open, the input plate remains securely in place. The input plate is hidden, or closed, by pressing down on the top cover until the latching mechanism engages. In its closed position, the top panel lies flush with the table’s top, held in place by the latching mechanism. This secure fit also means less chance for paperwork to catch the TNP461’s edges when being passed across a table—so documents remain clean and professional in appearance.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the new TNP461 interconnect box, “The TNP461 addresses a number of commonly encountered situations in the contemporary meeting or presentation space. Designed with a power connector to accommodate many different countries, the TNP461’s ready access to power means never having to worry about batteries becoming depleted before the meeting adjourns. Further, the choice of VGA or HDMI connections makes laptop computer connections easy, and the addition of network and audio connectors makes this interconnect unit an extremely comprehensive solution for presenters.”
