There are plenty of commercial AV systems to go for. Most commercial AV systems generally specialize in larger setups. However, not all situations are ideal to get a commercial AV systems setup.
Indeed, commercial AV systems are easy to set up and are pretty flexible in terms of scaling up and down – but what if you’re just a network admin or from the IT department, working on a single-room problem where you need to connect a couple of displays to a laptop which will be used during a meeting or conference? In that case, the only ideal solution you have for your organization is to provide the temporary connection required for the conference or the meeting yourself.
An Example Setup
An example scenario could be when you have been asked to pair up a couple of mounted displays to a laptop that will have access for multiple employees to use. Some might need to use just one of the displays whereas others might need to use both.
The best way to go about this problem would be completely ditching wireless. Windows 10 can handle multiple wireless displays but unless you’re an AV expert and one who will be present to troubleshoot just in case, it’s better to use USB-C clocks instead.
Now, that also depends on the laptop in question. Not all laptops are equipped with USB-C ports. As such, an HDMI wallplate transmitter coupled with a video splitter might work just fine.
The second monitor will be left turned off when not in use.
HDMI baluns will be used to run the video signal over CAT6. It will then be converted back to HDMI at the display.
Bonus tip: If you go this route, you must keep everything powered over PoE with an unmanaged switch.
Need an even simpler way? Get aImmersive Solstice pod running in the extended desktop mode. Fairly easy to do but requires an initial cost.
