MuxLab’s Introduces AV over IP Extender That Delivers Uncompressed 4K/60

MuxLab’s new AV over IP 4K/60 Uncompressed Extender, Fiber (model 500761) delivers 4K/60 video from one or many sources among one or many displays.

MuxLab said the device connects sources to displays through a 10Gig Ethernet Switch, enabling an easy, scalable way to implement virtual matrix switch and splitter configurations. Massive video walls can be created at nearly any user-defined scale, provided the network bandwidth is available.
 


It supports both HDMI and DisplayPort inputs for greater compatibility. The systems’ transmitters and receivers can connect to the switch using OM4 multimode fiber cable, effectively transmitting up to 1300-feet (400m) in distance so equipment can be stored far from the installation and accessed remotely.

Resolutions up to 4K/60 are supported when using both HDMI and DisplayPort. When uncompressed, zero latency video is delivered at 4K/60 (4:2:0). With light compression and visually lossless latency (less than one frame), video is delivered at 4K/60 (4:4:4). 



There are some analog audio alternatives with the ability to insert two-channel audio on the transmitting side and extract it at the receiver. Both transmitter and receiver come equipped with a 1G Ethernet Switch port to connect network devices. RS232 and IR provide remote control options. A wall-mount bracket kit is included.
