The What: Extron has introduced two new NAV encoders in a decorator-style wallplate design that stream data over a 10 Gbps optical Ethernet interface. The NAV 10E 201 D AV over IP encoder streams video and audio signals and the NAV 10E 401 D streams video, audio, and Ethernet signals. The encoders are available in black and white.
The What Else: Using Extron’s PURE3 codec, the encoders deliver real-time, lossless video at resolutions up to 4K@60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and ultra-low latency. Adjustable bit rate settings enable transmission over 10 Gbps networks and compatibility with NAV 1 Gbps endpoints, increasing scalability for large deployments. Support for AES67 audio over IP facilitates integration with DMP Plus DSPs or other IP-enabled audio components. Purpose-built to support demanding pro AV applications, the scalable NAV platform enables secure deployment of AV signals to thousands of endpoints.
"We're excited to expand our award-winning NAV Series with our new 10G decorator-style wallplate encoders, which feature the industry’s most advanced technology in a stylish, convenient form factor," said Casey Hall, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Extron. "This new wall plate form factor makes it easy for integrators to elegantly install NAV encoders right where they are needed: in walls, lecterns, floor boxes, or any presentation furniture that accommodates a 3-gang junction box."
The Bottom Line: The new encoders from Extron support streaming real-time, lossless video at resolutions up to 4K@60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling.
