Barco Silex is announcing new features on its Viper OEM AV-over-IP solution. The new features include PTP synchronization, support for video wall, HDMI 2.0, and fine-tuned video compression. The addition of these functionalities enables Barco Silex customers to address more use cases and applications in the professional audio/video market.
The Viper OEM solution is a fully functional stand-alone hardware board that enables HDMI over IP. It is a turnkey solution for anyone willing to develop its own product for distributing audio/video signals over IP network. The flexibility and scalability of IP networking infrastructure makes it the best solution for transporting Audio/Video in many cases. Viper is a unique solution for transporting a 4K signal over a single 1Gb Ethernet cable with uncompromised quality and extremely low latency.
The PTP support enables accurate clock synchronization across all the Viper encoders and decoders within the IP network. By using PTP, the audio and video from several sources distributed across multiple displays remain synchronized, even in extreme large installations.
The updated Viper solution now comes with a full-featured video wall mode. The video signal is distributed over the IP network from the source to a configurable array of displays. The video wall mode supports many different layouts and orientations of display thanks to the embedded image processing capabilities.
