DVIGear showed its next generation DisplayNet — their AptoVision-based 10GbE Ethernet AV-over-IP product line. The DisplayNet DN-200 Series supports sending up to 4K /60p (4:4:4) with 8-bit color, or 4K /60p (4:2:0) with 10-bit color (HDR) via a 10 Gbps network. Also, the DN-200 Series includes an HDMI 2.0 input that fully supports HDCP 2.2, plus a DisplayPort 1.2 input as well as support for High Speed USB 2.0 (480 Mbps.). The DN-200 Series is available in two models that support either CAT-X twisted pair cables or signal distribution over fiber optic media using industry standard SFP+ optical modules. Both models will be available in Q2 2017.
According to DVIGear, the DisplayNet Manager Software was rebuilt from the ground up to be a completely web-based client. The software communicates with the DisplayNet Server (DNS-200) via a built-in API, which then distributes commands to the DisplayNet devices on the network. This new architecture dramatically enhances user experience and flexibility, plus allows new features to be rolled out much more rapidly in order to support customer needs.
