January 30, 2024

Ideal for Supporting the Evolving Needs of Modern Conference Spaces and Empowering Users with Dedicated Video Connections for Mobile Devices

ISE 2024 (Stand #3F300) - BARCELONA — HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, lighting, video and control systems, announced three new AMX HydraPort USB-C modules to ensure that modern conference spaces and users have all the connectivity options needed to empower impactful meeting space collaboration. A new USB-C to HDMI Module with Retractable Cable provides a dedicated video connection for outputting content from laptops and mobile devices to in-room video networks. Additionally, two new USB-C charging modules are available – with or without an included power supply.

No matter what type of A/V, power, or networking connection you need to support today’s meeting space collaboration needs, the industry-leading and award-winning AMX HydraPort Architectural Connectivity System most likely supports it with a variety of chassis sizes, finishes, and over 50 global-friendly modules to choose from.

The new USB-C to HDMI Module with Retractable Cable delivers digital video in resolutions up to 4K@60Hz. With a retractable USB-C cable on top of the table and an HDMI output underneath it, this solution simplifies connecting modern laptops and mobile devices to your video network. The compact, easy-to-install solution organizes and hides cables in virtually any type of conference table, including narrow tables and those with glass inlay.

The two new USB-C charging modules provide both USB-C and USB-A connections with charging capability to the HydraPort chassis. The power symbol on the modules makes it easy for users to identify that power is available. The HPX-USBC-US65 includes a two-port power supply with US-style, Type A plug, capable of providing up to 65W over USB-C, and up to 30W over USB-A. The HPX-USBC-100 provides all the functionality of the HPX-USBC-US65 but does not include a power supply and can be combined with a user-supplied power supply, compatible with any global power plug standard.

“These new AMX HydraPort USB-C modules make charging and outputting video from laptops and mobile devices a breeze to ensure any meeting space is equipped to support the needs of any visiting user,” said Rob Norton, Product Manager, User Interfaces, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “This is exactly what we hoped to achieve with the HydraPort system. As technology evolves, you have a product that is continually capable of supporting users, the market, and just about any connection or format.”
