AMX Debuts N7142 AV-Over-IP Presentation Switcher

HARMAN Pro today unveiled the AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher, an all-in-one presentation switcher that incorporates low-latency Networked AV video distribution. It’s aimed at classrooms and conference rooms.

The N7142 Presentation Switcher distributes up to 4K UHD (3840×2160) content from 4K sources (4K @60Hz 4:2:0) HDMI 2.0 and two VGA inputs that can be independently switched between two HDMI 2.0 outputs. Each output has a mirrored HDMI port for connecting to an additional display, encoder card or other video distribution equipment. Two available Networked AV slots and an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch make distributing classroom presentations to overflow seating as easy and immediate as a single LAN connection.

In addition to audio from the HDMI inputs, the switcher supports multiple high-quality audio sources with powerful built-in DSP and a 60-watt stereo amplifier. The N7142 Presentation Switcher includes two microphone inputs with phantom power, as well as six independent stereo inputs that can be used to incorporate different audio sources into presentations, including digital devices like smartphones or tablets.

The audio amplifier can also operate in 4Ω/8Ω, 70V, or 100V modes via a user-selectable switch, making it easy to integrate the N7142 Presentation Switcher with existing AV infrastructures.

The AMX N7142 switcher is available in two configurations: the NMX-PRS-N7142 and the NMX-PRS-N7142-23, which adds an AMX N2312 Encoder and an AMX N2322 Decoder to the base configuration. Here are all the specs.
