MediaCento IPX is the perfect HDMI-over-IP distribution solution that enables you to transmit HDMI video over Ethernet to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as your local network reaches.
Do you need to extend (unicast) audio/video from one source to a single screen or distribute (multicast) the same content to multiple screens? Do you need the ability to switch between multiple sources or create video walls?
MediaCento IPX has you covered. Add in the MediaCento Controller, and the system becomes an IP-based matrix switch and video wall processor.
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.
Delivers 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

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
