9 Benefits of MCX Gen2

MCX Gen2 is ideal for creating end-to-end secure video conferencing, hotel or convention center displays, multi-display broadcasts, distributed video matrix or video wall systems, and remote KVM system control with TAA-compliant MCX encoders/decoders/transcoders. Switch between video, audio, RS-232, and USB 2.0 signals, or display all sources with built-in video wall management.

MCX Gen2's advanced AV distribution and management system distributes 4K video and audio over 10G networks with zero latency. It supports up to 10-bit HDR using SDVoE standards and includes encoders, decoders, transcoders, and advanced controllers, allowing for real-time monitoring and management of the whole system.

Why MCX?

MCX Gen2 is an encoder and decoder device that transmits 4K video and audio over 10G networks with no latency, which reduces network management time and costs. This latest design in AV-over-IP systems offers the following benefits:

1. Video Quality
MCX delivers high video quality by extending uncompressed 4K 60 Hz 4:4:4 video to an unlimited number of displays without compromising latency and bandwidth. Also, it supports up to 10-bit HDR using Software-Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE), allowing AV and data payloads to exist on the same network without reducing network performance, functionality, or capability.

2. Advanced Video Wall Capabilities
MCX has the advanced features of video scaling options, such as multi-view, picture-in-picture, split screen, and more, which increases versatility in video wall deployments. It also offers options to display your video wall content any way you want.

3. Zero Latency
MCX Gen2 is designed to transmit video or audio signals over 10G networks in real-time (0.03 milliseconds) without any lag and complications in your operation.

4. Flexible Switching
MCX allows for flexible switching of signals between video sources in less than 100 milliseconds without artifacts or screen blinking, meaning you can change video content quickly without any noticeable distortion to your image. This feature is best suitable for professional AV applications.

5. Easy Installation
Sometimes, installing or adding other network AV solutions to your IT network can be challenging. But this does not happen with MCX. This video extension system is designed to support any modern network, making installation easy. MCX can be set up on 10G networks over Ethernet. It also supports up to 5G and wireless networks without any device limitations.

6. Easy Handling and Control:
Multiple easy-to-use tools are available to control MCX powerfully:

  1. MCX Controller: Managing and switching between networks is easy with the help of MCX controllers. Also, deployment, configuration, and system monitoring is simple.

  2. Control the complete AV system from a web browser using MCX Web UI.

  3. Take command of your MCX AV-over-IP system with the tap of a button or the swipe of a touchpanel with Black Box ControlBridge® or the third-party control platform of your choice.

7. Enhanced Connectivity
You can easily set up every essential AV distribution device to your MCX via its different ports: discrete RS-232, IR, and secondary audio channel; plus a separate 1-GbE connection to independently route, embed, and de-embed up to three separate audio streams.

8. Designed with the Latest Technology
SDVoE transmits AV without negatively compromising your network’s performance, functionality, or capacity.

9. TAA Compliant
MCX Gen2 Encoders and Decoders comply with TAA specifications, making it suitable for government institutions and military organizations worldwide.
