The PacketAV Duet Wallplate Encoder provides powerful 4K UHD Video and Dante/AES67 Audio encoding over Gigabit Ethernet in a convenient wallplate form-factor. It can be easily mounted in a wall, tabletop, lectern, or floor box using a standard 2-gang US or UK back box, and connected to power (standard POE) and Ethernet using only a single category cable.

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 Solutions brings the power of DanteTM enabled connectivity to video. For Installed AV professionals, the impact of DanteTM connectivity has been a game‐changer, enabling fast, easy, and economical digital networking of multi‐channel audio over IP.

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.

The Duet Wallplate 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 Duet 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.
