Visionary Solutions 4K UHD over IP cinema quality, ultra‐low latency [~1 frame ‐ visually lossless] encoder and decoder bypass the constraints of traditional switch matrix distribution systems by harnessing the flexibility and scalability of converged IP networks.
With the growing demand for 4K UHD video, professional AV designers and IT directors–in an increasingly converged AV/IT environment–can use Visionary Solutions products as an alternative to conventional distribution systems.
Visionary’s PacketAV® products can be deployed on any industry standard IP network. They can be used on existing enterprise IP networks or on a physically separate parallel network [private network] to offload traffic, using the same network protocols, methods, and devices but without intermingling video traffic with data or voice, and with equal ease of installation.
An encoder is connected to an [HDMI] AV source signal [a camera, STB, media player, PC or server, BluRay player, or digital signage player, etc.]. The signal is converted into a packetized network stream that is compatible with off‐the‐shelf IGMP enabled Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches (Jumbo Frames enabled). Using an existing CAT 5/6 infrastructure, users can connect CAT 5/6 to any decoder anywhere on the same GbE network. The decoder takes the IP packets received over CAT 5/6 cables, converts them back into an HDMI signal connecting directly to a display, delivering visually lossless video along with USB over IP (KVM) and RS‐232 over IP controls. A signal from any encoder can be sent to any decoder on the same network. The signals can easily be controlled with our Vision Lite software to create different outputs on the display side, including video wall or matrix switching.
