Drive Pixel-Perfect Video to an Unlimited Number of Screens with AV-over-IP Technology

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.
