AMX by HARMAN Debuts Low-Bandwidth/Compressed 4K Over IP

nmx-dec-n2322_front-high-0916HARMAN’s AMX just launched the N2300 Series of 4K lower-bandwidth video over IP solutions. With a bandwidth of less than 200 megabits per second, users can distribute 4K video over existing Gigabit Ethernet networks with what AMX says is only a latency of only one frame.

The N2300 Series includes support for HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 and the system handles 3840×2160 at 4:2:0 chroma subsampling rates. Like other AMX Networked AV products, the N2300 Series has Native NetLinx capabilities for integration into HARMAN solutions. Additional features include keyboard/mouse support, RJ-45 and SFP network connections, support for balanced and unbalanced analog audio and RS232 and IR ports for device control.

The NMX-DEC-N2322 decoder is available as a standalone unit perfect for mounting behind a display. The NMX-ENC-N2312 encoder is available both in standalone and card-based configurations, providing options for installation near a source or in a rack, using the AMX N9206 2RU Rack Mount Cage. The AMX N9206 holds up to six cards for a clean rack mount installation and optional consolidated power supply.

The AMX N2300 Series is expected to be available in November 2016. Here are all the specs for the encoder and the specs for the decoder.
