Extron Provides Solutions for Streaming AV Over IP

Publish date:

Extron Electronics demonstrated new products and technologies for streaming A/V over IP at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas.

Visitors to the Extron booth saw working demonstrations of Extron's VN-Matrix™ encoders, decoders, and recorders for high performance streaming of audio, video, and computer graphics over IP.

"The migration of AV solutions to real-time IP streaming represents the next great innovation for our industry," says Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. "We are committed to the development of new products and technologies, along with comprehensive training and support programs, to enable our resellers to successfully integrate streaming solutions."

VN-Matrix encoders utilize the Extron exclusive PURE3 codec to compress and stream computer graphics and video instantly across standard IP networks for live viewing and collaboration. The PURE3 codec produces excellent, visually lossless image quality at highly efficient bit rates and low latency. It also provides extremely reliable delivery and exceptionally robust protection against network errors with advanced error concealment. The PURE3 codec exceeds many of the performance characteristics of existing standards-based compression formats, making it ideal for time-sensitive, quality-critical applications. In addition to VN-Matrix Systems, Extron will present a preview of their upcoming technology for streaming high resolution video and audio using H.264 video compression technology.

Extron VN-Matrix Systems enable applications of any size, from simple point-to-point systems to those that require virtual switching of hundreds of inputs and outputs. VN-Matrix Systems are also highly scalable, allowing distribution of signals across town or around the world. They support existing cabling and network infrastructure and are ideally suited for governmental, corporate, medical, industrial, and entertainment applications.

Extron is also launching a new one-day AV Streaming System Design School.

What Do You Mean, AV over IP?

The phrase “AV over IP” is thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean in commercial AV installations today? Put simply, AV over IP is about sending uncompressed audio and video information over standard IP mediums. Put a little bit more complexly, it can also mean encoding the sources and streaming the content with some compression to mitigate bitrate over IP mediums. But ultimately, it means providing extension and switching of video and audio sources over standard IP.
