At ISE 2019, Black Box will showcase reliable, high-performance solutions for modern IP-based and 4K AV visualisation and distribution.

The company will highlight its extensive portfolio of products and its ability to tailor highly individual pro AV systems, informed by decades of experience and backed by an extensive international team of skilled application engineers.

Experts from Black Box will demo solutions for conference rooms and education, digital signage, and control rooms.

Products to be showcased include:

Radian Flex is a fully software-based video wall processing platform that delivers the future-proof flexibility and scalability essential in digital signage, corporate, education, and mission-critical visualization applications.

Developed and manufactured by Black Box, the Emerald KVM-over-IP product family provides the high degree of flexibility and network security essential to state-of-the-art KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension and switching. At ISE 2019, Black Box will feature the Emerald 4K and Emerald SE (Standard Edition) transmitter-receiver pairs for connecting workstations with remote computers and servers over distances up to 10 km over single-mode fibre, or even further over IP.

Black Box will be demonstrating how its iCOMPEL interactive digital signage platform with system-on-chip technology empowers users to build eye-catching signage, stream content from websites, and visualise timetables, events, and useful wayfinding or emergency messages. Users can easily play, upload, and share images, presentations, videos, and audio media files on any HDMI screen.

The Coalesce system combines wireless displays, touchscreen-based content manipulation, and screen- sharing technologies to enable up to eight users to share and control any type of content from their own device, either tablet, laptop, or smartphone. Further enhancing real-time collaboration, the new Coalesce PRO wireless presentation system features video conferencing and user-friendly, enterprise-level deployment management.

Throughout the show, Black Box will also showcase its powerful and versatile solutions for system and room control, HDMI-over-IP distribution and display, and meeting room booking and management.

• The company’s Control Bridge is a complete multisystem and room control system for conference rooms, control rooms, and building automation. Using a single touch panel to control KVM, AV, and other in-room devices, users can program room temperature, control video wall solutions, turn lights on and off remotely, or tap a preset configuration to get a room ready for a presentation with the touch of a button.

• The Black Box MediaCento IPX HDMI-over-IP distribution solution enables users to transmit up to 4K HDMI video over Ethernet to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as the local network reaches. Deployed along with the MediaCento controller, the system becomes an IP-based matrix switch and video wall processor for up to 8 x 8 screens.

• The VideoPlex 4000 video wall controller simplifies creation of eye-catching DP/HDMI video walls with an infinite number of monitors. The stand-alone video wall controller/scaler outputs high-resolution HDMI video (up to 4K) to four monitors per device. Because the controller supports daisy-chaining, non-rectangular screen arrangements, and any mix of monitor orientations, users can create a virtually unlimited multi-monitor canvas.

• The IN-SESSION meeting room booking system makes it easy to effectively manage the occupancy of boardrooms, conference rooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, classrooms, and any other meeting place. IN-SESSION integrates seamlessly with the existing email server and allows users to make instant reservations — and extend or cancel existing meetings — directly from its touch panel.
