IFI: Aurora Multimedia Debuts With Latest Solutions

563
Aurora Multimedia having entered India with a direct presence recently, is the newest multinational manufacturer joining the top league at InfoComm India 2017. The Morganville, New Jersey-based AV over IP solutions major is introducing to Indian AV industry a new industry first with its visually lossless, low latency- the 1Gbps 4K AV over IP signal transceiver utilizing the company’s proprietary IPBaseT technology.

The VLX Series comprises of three variations. Two Wall plates (VLX-TCW2V-C, VLX-TCW2H-C) and a box version (VLX-TC1-C). Capable of 4K30 4:4:4, the VLX is a low compression 8:1 with low latency 25ms unit to create a visually lossless image suitable for digital signage, conference rooms, classrooms, and houses of worship coming at a very reasonable cost.

The VLX takes further advances with videowall modes of up to 8×8 and image rotation for portrait videowalls. All VLX units have a Dante option to further increase the flexibility of the overall system. Another innovation is the preview capability allowing images of what is being encoded or decoded to be forwarded to a web page or application.

Aurora’s IPBaseT combines a variety of 4K IP technologies and features under one unified protocol using a simplified topology. For the VLX Series, visually lossless video with low latency, videowall, image rotation, digital audio, USB 2.0, Ethernet, and control are some of the core capabilities of IPBaseT. Utilizing the bandwidth of a standard 1Gbps copper, IPBaseT supports large scalable audio/video matrixing, and it does so while replacing multiple technologies and products with a “single-box” distributed platform.

New IPBaseT IPX-TC2
Aurora introduces a new technological first 4K60Hz 4:4:4 AV over IP signal transceiver, utilizing its IPBaseT technology in combination with SDVoE standards. The IPX-TC2 Series is the world’s First 10Gbps IPBaseT transceiver capable of 4K60Hz 4:4:4 with extremely low 1.3:1 real time compression with only 3ms latency scaling achieving zero frame latency. Includes scaling, windowing, and videowall modes up to 16×16. Offered in copper or fiber.

The IPX-TC2 combines a variety of 4K IP technologies and features under one unified protocol using a simplified topology. Uncompressed video with zero-latency (4K30Hz 4:4:4), visually lossless video with low latency (4K60Hz 4:4:4 with 100us latency), seamless switching, videowall and multi-viewer modes, digital audio, USB 2.0 (480Mbps), Dante option, 1Gbps Ethernet, and control are some of the core capabilities of IPBaseT. Utilizing the bandwidth of a standard 10Gbps copper or fiber (IPX Series), IPBaseT supports large scalable audio/video matrixing, and it does so while replacing multiple technologies and products with a “single-box” distributed platform.

IPBaseT HTX-TC1 With HDBASET-IP
Aurora Multimedia is also showcasing the new technological first combining HDBaseT, HDBaseT-IP, and IPBaseT allowing full two way 4K60 4:4:4 HDR on a single 10G port. The HTX-TC1 is the first all-in-one IP transceiver product to use HDBaseT for local connectivity with Aurora’s new line of 18Gbps HDBaseT products (HTE-TX2, HTE-RX2, & HTW-2) and 10G IP for remote distribution.

The HTX-TC1 has the lowest 10G Ethernet switch port cost at $50.00 due to its ability to transmit and receive full bandwidth in both directions on a single port. Typical AV over IP systems utilize 2 ports, one for encode and one for decode. The HTX-TC1 would only require a 24-port switch compared to 48 used in current solutions.

Scaling, seamless switching, USB 2.0, audio DSP, Dante, and control, further enhance the HTX-TC1 capabilities. The HDBaseT connectivity allows retro fitting with existing systems and works with Aurora’s new 18Gbps HDBaseT products consisting of two gang transmitter wall plate (HTW-2), transmitter box unit (HTE-TX2), and receiver box unit (HTE-RX2). The HTX-TC1 is the most complete in room solution ever created increasing capabilities while reducing cost.
