MediaCento Features

HDMI HD video to 4K UHD video over IP

The MediaCento IPX IP-based audio/video distribution solution uses existing standards-based Ethernet technology and TCP/IP protocols to unicast HDMI HD / 4K UHD video signals on your Gigabit Ethernet network. In a multicast configuration, one transmitter can drive multiple receivers with no extra network load.

Easy Integration

Transmitters and receivers install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure. There's no need to configure any IP settings or run expensive dedicated links from a back room. Better yet, being PoE-powered eliminates the need for external power supplies.

Plug-and-Play Setup

Use rotary switches to set the transmitter and receivers to the same multicast or unicast channel and all IP multicasting settings are automatically configured. Just connect your source, your display(s), and a network switch. It's ready to go!

Signals that Go for Kilometers

The units support IGMP and packetize signals so all your HD/UHD source content can be delivered anywhere you want over Ethernet wiring. The extender transmits video up to 100 m per link, but goes even longer when additional network switches are added to the mix. Use fiber with media converters to go several kilometers, if needed.

Optimal PC-to-Screen Performance

MediaCento IPX HD/4K features an extended display identification data (EDID) copy function, which ensures that the proper video settings are maintained, and is HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Matrix Switching and Video Wall Control

Use the standalone MediaCento IPX Controller with any network switch for full flexibility including dual network and video wall support, up to 8 x 8 (64 screens). Or, build the network with our unique LPB2900-series switches with built-in basic control functionality.

  • Power over Ethernet
  • Secure HDMI and Power Connectors
  • HDCP 2.2 Compliant
  • 4K Units Support USB, Serial, IR, and Analog Audio
  • Scalable Video
