ADTECHNO will debut its Dante AV Ultra Encoder and Decoder at Booth C6328 and Audinate booth C8012. These devices deliver visually lossless video and perfectly synced audio with a single network clock, eliminating any lip-sync issues. They support the transmission of 8-channel audio, up to 4Kp60 4:4:4 video, USB and RS-422 serial commands over a 1GbE network. Users can conveniently manage all signal streams through the widely used Dante Controller software.

The DAV-02HT Encoder is equipped with USB-C and HDMI input ports. It automatically switches sources when it detects an incoming TMDS signal. Users can also manually select sources by pressing a front-panel button or by utilizing a sensor input to connect custom-tailored press button, allowing system integrators to externally wire a press button, suitable for installation on a table.

The DAV-02HR Decoder features dual HDMI output ports, allowing for simultaneous video display. Each HDMI port automatically reads Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) of connected screens and adjusts the output video resolution to ensure the optimal display resolution for each screen. Additionally, HDCP is automatically converted to the appropriate revision for each connected screen.

Attendees to Blackwire's Booth C9869 can expect to witness Blackwire's latest advancements, including seamless integration of commercial audio systems with control platforms, updated drivers for enhanced video wall and multiview management, comprehensive access control offerings, and the newly launched Network Provisioning Service designed to streamline networking installations.

The recently launched Blackwire Network Provisioning Service allows integrators to receive networking equipment that is fully configured, updated, labeled, and ready for installation right out of the box. Before the introduction of this service, integrators often faced challenges with on-site configuration and troubleshooting, leading to potential delays and increased costs. This new service not only addresses these issues but also sets a new standard in the industry by extending Blackwire's proven video distribution system provisioning to networking products.

Blackwire has also recently updated two of its other Control4 drivers—MultiView Pro and VideoWall Pro—to accommodate an intuitive interface for Just Add Power 3G and MaxColor products and AVPro Edge MXNet systems that utilize video walls or multiview video tilers. These drivers are designed to integrate seamlessly into the Control4 UI on both T4 touchscreens and mobile/tablet devices, enabling end users to easily manage these intricate systems through a user-friendly and visually engaging interface.
