MediaCento™ IPX

HDMI-over-IP Distribution & Video Wall Control

HDMI-over-IP Distribution & Video Wall Control

Display up to 4K UHD Video over IP to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as your local network reaches with MediaCento™ IPX

MediaCento™ IPX is the perfect HDMI-over-IP Distribution solution that enables you to transmit HDMI video over Ethernet to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as your local network reaches.

Do you need to extend (unicast) audio/video from one source to a single screen or distribute (multicast) the same content to multiple screens?
Perhaps you need the ability to switch between multiple sources or create video walls?

MediaCento™ IPX has you covered. Add in the MediaCento™ Controller, and the system becomes an IP-based matrix switch and video wall processor.

Main product features and benefits include:

  • Up to 4K Ultra HD video extension over IP: Unicast or multicast HDMI video and audio to a nearly unlimited number of screens on a network. You need just one transmitter and one receiver for each screen
  • Easy integration: The transmitter(s) and receiver(s) install directly into an existing LAN infrastructure
  • Plug-and-play setup: There's no need to configure any IP settings (although more experienced users can do that if needed)
  • Up to 100m extension per link, even longer when additional network switches are added to the mix
  • Lossless compression and ultra-low latency no matter what the distance or the number of screens
  • HDCP encrypted content support and Blu-ray ready
  • Extended display identification data (EDID) copy function results in an optimal PC-to-screen performance
  • Power over Ethernet: There's no need for external power. PoE power eliminates external power supplies
  • USB 2.0 and bidirectional RS-232 support for full integration of (interactive) touchscreens (only with 4K and USB version)
  • Scalable Video: Add transmitters and receivers as you add sources and displays
  • Matrix Switching and Video Wall Control: Use the standalone MediaCento™ IPX Controller with any network switch for full flexibility including dual network and video wall support, up to 8 x 8 (64 screens). Or, build the network with our unique LPB2900 Series Switches with built-in basic control functionality.

Product Details


Lossless compression and ultra-low latency for HD extension
The MediaCento™ IPX units transmit broadcast-quality video and audio, and support up to full 4K UHD for the best pictures ever, no matter what the distance or number of screens.

Easy integration
Transmitters and receivers install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure. There's no need to configure any IP settings or run expensive dedicated links from a back room. Better yet, the PoE-powered units eliminate the need for external power supplies.

Plug-and-play setup
Use rotary switches to set the transmitter and receivers to the same multicast or unicast channel and all IP multicasting settings are automatically configured. Just connect your source, your display(s), and a network switch. It's ready to go!

Signals that go for kilometres
The units support IGMP and packetise signals so all your HD source content can be delivered anywhere you want over Ethernet wiring. The extender transmits video up to 100 m per link, but goes even longer when additional network switches are added to the mix. Use fibre with media converters to go several kilometres, if needed.

Optimal PC-to-screen performance
MediaCento™ IPX features extended display identification data (EDID) copy function, which ensures the proper video settings are maintained.

Secure connectors
All MediaCento™ IPX products come with locking HDMI and power connectors.

Flexible matrix switching and video wall control
With the MediaCento™ IPX Controller added to the system, you can:

  • Create video walls up to 8 x 8 (64 screens).
  • Control and switch from any source to any display remotely using the intuitive Web interface. The controller automatically detects any MediaCento IPX units in the network and pulls them into the Web interface for easy setup and control.
  • Control from a secondary network using the controller's two Ethernet ports.
  • Remotely control the units from a mobile interface such as a laptop, cell phone, or tablet.

H.264 Encoder/Decoder

Transmit high-quality HDMI video over a standard IP network for display of HD content on one screen—or multicast signals to multiple displays—with the Black Box H.264 Encoder. Because the Encoder uses H.264 compression and requires very low bandwidth, it's extremely efficient when encoding full HD video and analog audio for transmission.

The Black Box H.264 Encoder integrates with any equipment using standard H.264 encoding. The video stream can be received by any H.264 Decoder, software or sent over the internet. It also integrates well with a number of Black Box products, such as:


Specifications:

  • Extend full HD video and audio over any IP network using H.264 encoding
  • Video resolution up to Full HD 1920 x 1200@60 Hz
  • Distribute video and audio to an unlimited number of decoders
  • Works with VS2000 Decoder or integrates with any other H.264 decoder, set-top box, VLC, or media player
  • PoE powering means it will receive power directly from the network switch
  • Low bandwidth requirements so it's easy to transmit over the internet and even WiFi
  • Low adjustable bit rate from 2 to 30 Mbps
  • User-friendly control features via IP (Web GUI and Telnet) providing simple, flexible, control and management options
