Do you want to make the most of your audio/video displays or video walls? AV-over-IP technology extends, distributes, and/or controls 4K UHD or 4K 60 Hz Video over IP to an unlimited number of screens. Black Box's MediaCento IPX is ideal for extending up to 4K UHD Video over IP to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as your local network reaches. It can extend (unicast) audio/video from one source to a single screen or distribute (multicast) the same content to multiple screens. If you need the ability to switch between multiple sources or create video walls, simply add in the MediaCento Controller, and the system becomes an IP-based matrix switch and video wall processor. Need more speed? Made to operate over 10-Gbps networks, Black Box's MCX goes a step further to distribute and extend 4K 60 Hz video and audio over IP while supporting these higher speeds, allowing AV and data payloads to exist on the same IT network, and reducing network management time and costs.
Extend, distribute, and control video to an unlimited number of screens using your existing LAN infrastructure. Black Box products offer plug-and-play setup, lossless compression with virtually no latency, EDID compatibility, high speeds combined with comprehensive connectivity and flexible deployment, seamless switching, and advanced video walls, all with complete control.
Unicast or multicast HDMI video and audio to a nearly unlimited number of screens on a network. You need just one transmitter and one receiver for each screen.
The transmitter(s) and receiver(s) install directly into an existing LAN infrastructure.
There's no need to configure any IP settings (although more experienced users can do that if needed).
HD or 4K model extends HDMI digital video/audio up to 100 m between transmitter and receiver (point-to-point) using CATx cable or (4K model only) up to 30 km between transmitter and receiver over single-mode fiber cable using a standard Gigabit SFP module.
Lossless compression and ultra-low latency no matter what the distance or the number of screens.
Extended display identification data (EDID) copy function results in an optimal PC-to-screen performance.
Extend uncompressed 4K 60 Hz 4:4:4 video to an unlimited number of displays without sacrificing latency, video quality, or bandwidth.
Connect every essential AV distribution device to your MCX through its variety of ports: discrete RS-232, IR, secondary audio channel plus a separate 1-GbE connection.
Switch between video sources in less than 100 milliseconds with no artifacts or screen blink.
Increase versatility in video wall deployments with advanced video scaling options, such as multi-view, picture-in-picture, split screen and more.
The MCX Controller lets you manage and monitor AV content with ease.
Deploy on 10G networks over Ethernet, fiber or both.

Hospitals globally face challenges in optimizing doctors’ and nurses’ time, often with medical professionals having limited minutes for patient interactions. To address this at a Danish university hospital, Black Box implemented the MediaCento system, enabling medical staff to access patient information on screens in individual rooms without returning to central nurses' stations. This efficient system not only streamlined workflows, enhancing patient care, but was also rapidly deployed, setting a precedent for future expansions within the hospital system.Read Case Study
