AMX brings 4K transmission to standard LAN networks
Harman’s AMX brand has brought low-bandwidth 4K video transmission to its latest networked A/V solution – N2300 Series. With a bandwidth of less than 200Mb/s, the manufacturer is promising 4K distribution over existing Gigabit Ethernet Networks with a reported latency of only one frame, thereby making the solution attractive for a variety of common applications.
The N2300 Series supports both the latest HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 standards for compatibility with the latest 4k displays. Thanks to the flexibility if IP transmission, systems can range in size from a single encoder and decoder or grown to make larger system simply by additional units. The N2300 encoders and decoders are PoE-powered, negating the need for an external power supply and simplifying installation. Quit operation is also assured as the units do not contain an internal fan for cooling.
Like other AMX Networked AV products, the N2300 Series has Native NetLinx capabilities for quick integration with Hamran solutions, while additional features include keyboard/mouse support, RJ-45 and SFP network connections, support for balanced and unbalanced analogue audio, and RS-232 and IR ports for device control.
The NMX-DEC-N2322 decoder is available as a standalone unit that can be mounted behind a display. The NMX-ENC-N2312 encoder is available both in standalone and card-based configurations, allowing for installation near a source or in a rack, using the AMX N9206 2RU rackmount cage. The AMX N9206 holds up to six cards and an optional consolidated power supply.
