The UCS 303 is a three-input, one-output, 4K collaboration and presentation switcher with USB device connections for unified communications spaces. The inputs support USB-C, as well as HDMI and DisplayPort with USB. The USB-C input provides video/audio, USB data, and 60W of power from an internal power supply. Five USB peripheral connections support USB cameras or mics. The HDMI output enables resolutions up to 4K/60 and USB devices connect at rates up to USB 10 Gbps. The inputs support TeamWork® Show Me® cables and the unit can be controlled via Ethernet, including RS?232 control to a local display. The compact half?rack width enclosure can mount under a table, desk, or in an equipment rack. The UCS 303 makes it easy to integrate AV sources and USB cameras for Teams® and Zoom™ meetings into huddle, meeting, and collaboration spaces. With USB cameras, microphones, and other peripheral devices becoming more common in small huddle spaces, the ability to connect users' laptops to these devices has become critical to a successful meeting experience. The UCS 303 supports switching up to five USB room devices, two that support rates up to USB 10 Gbps while providing 5V, 900 mA power, and three that support rates up to High Speed (USB 2.0) while providing 5V, 500 mA power per port. Integrating traditional AV display switching with USB peripheral device switching in one unit takes collaboration between local and remote users to a new level.
For more complex room setups that may want to switch the USB devices separately from the AV inputs, the UCS 303 offers USB breakaway switching. This enables flexibility in switching by allowing the HDMI and DisplayPort input video and audio to be switched to the display without the corresponding USB data bus. For example, USB devices, such as a USB camera or microphone, could be left connected to a dedicated DisplayPort computer in the room, while video from the other inputs is sent to the room’s display via the HDMI output. This enables USB peripherals to be switched independently of video and audio signals when needed for users who may only want to use the space for a traditional BYOD presentation meeting.
The user-friendly UCS 303 is easy to use in any meeting space, including simple rooms without a control system. The auto switching feature can be configured to prioritize inputs if more than one laptop or computer is connected at the same time. This can be used in rooms that have a dedicated computer connected to one input, leaving other inputs for other devices such as laptop computers. As laptops connect, the switcher will automatically switch that laptop to the display and connect the USB camera or other room devices to the laptop for use in a Teams or Zoom meeting. When a laptop is disconnected, the system will automatically switch back to the dedicated computer for users who may want to use the room without a laptop. This empowers users to collaborate intuitively, with minimal interaction with the AV hardware.
Convenient Content Sharing
Control can be brought to users’ fingertips using TeamWork Show Me cables or Retractors housed in elegant Cable Cubby or AVEdge table mounted cable access enclosures. Users simply connect their laptop computers to a Show Me cable and press the Share Button to share content to the room’s display. This can eliminate the need for a control system and button panel or touch panel for simple presentation or Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) spaces.
The UCS 303 utilizes the full capabilities of USB?C connections, enabling transmission of all three primary AV functions, video/audio, USB data, and power over a single cable. This all-in-one connection eliminates the need for laptops to have a separate power or USB data connection and streamlines the user experience with a single cable connection.
Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) rooms offer collaborative spaces for local and remote users without the need for more complicated room setups that use dedicated computers, switching, and control equipment. BYOM spaces can use USB cameras and microphones in conjunction with portable laptops brought by the users. The use of a collaboration switcher brings USB switching to traditional AV switching so that the room can not only switch between different laptops or computer sources but also allow them to use USB?connected equipment in the room. These spaces are more convenient for users, less expensive to set up and maintain, and offer more flexibility. BYOM spaces also serve a dual function and operate as traditional presentation spaces when users want to present content locally and don’t need to run a UC meeting. BYOM spaces feature powerful and effective local and remote collaboration capabilities for today’s huddle, meeting, and collaboration rooms.
