ZeeVee was revealed today to be the manufacturer of the plug-in module to enable the world’s first Ethernet switch featuring integrated HDMI connectivity for video sources, including the capacity to distribute uncompressed 4K/UHD and HDR content via SDVoE.
Utilizing ZeeVee ZyPer4K technology in conjunction with the 96-port NETGEAR 10G M4300-96X Modular Managed Ethernet switch, the card allows for directly connecting rack’ed sources via HDMI to be routed via IP-based video networks without a separate Av-over-IP encoder or decoder as that functionality (using the SDVoE platform) is built right on to the input/output card.
The new ZeeVee ZyPer4K HDMI Module, developed in collaboration with NETGEAR and the SDVoE Alliance, plugs into the NETGEAR switch chassis. Each ZeeVee module accommodates up to four HDMI sources; multiple modules may be used in the same switch. The NETGEAR switch requires just two units of rack space, presenting a compact, efficient, high-value solution to customers.
The ZyPer4K HDMI Module will be on display at the ZeeVee ISE 2019 booth (10-S130, Hall 10).
The ZeeVee ZyPer4K HDMI Module works with the NETGEAR M4300-96X Modular Managed Switch, which is preconfigured for multicast network configurations. It also allows designers, integrators or users to simply select the combination of HDMI, copper, PoE+ and fiber M4300-96X port expansion cards that suit system requirements, connect cables from sources or decoder-equipped displays, and switch on the power.
As with other SDVoE components, the switch easily accommodates symmetric input/output configurations such as 48×48, as well as asymmetric solutions such as 10×86, 24×72, etc. The modular design of the switch allows reconfiguration of inputs and outputs should system requirements change.
The ZyPer4K HDMI Module will be available from ZeeVee in Summer 2019. ZeeVee, an authorized NETGEAR reseller, already offers the NETGEAR M4300-96X. More information on the ZeeVee ZyPer4K HDMI Module and the NETGEAR M4300-96X Modular Managed Switch can be found online here.
