Black Box at ISE 2019

At the ISE 2019, Black Box will showcase solutions for modern IP-based and 4K AV visualization and distribution. The company will highlight its portfolio of products and its ability to tailor highly individual pro AV systems. Experts from Black Box will demo solutions for conference rooms and education, digital signage and control rooms.

Radian Flex is a fully software-based video wall processing platform that delivers the future-proof flexibility and scalability essential in digital signage, corporate, education and mission-critical visualization applications. The intuitive software from Black Box makes it easy to display high-quality content from multiple sources across multi-screen display walls in any imaginable configuration. Users simply add, move, resize and change content on the Radian Flex interface, and those changes are reflected in real time on the target video wall, distributed visualisation system, or other display devices. Radian Flex supports an unlimited number of inputs and an unlimited number of screens and endpoints. Users can easily daisy-chain monitors to display hundreds of H.264 and VNC video streams across multiple screens. Integrated SmartFrame technology ensures perfect picture quality and automates optimal placement of content on screen with minimal setup. The platform’s robust video engine supports 4K 60fps video up to an industry-leading resolution of more than one billion pixels, paving the way for future 8K resolutions.

Developed and manufactured by Black Box, the Emerald KVM-over-IP product family provides the high degree of flexibility and network security essential to KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension and switching. At ISE 2019, Black Box will feature the Emerald 4K and Emerald SE (Standard Edition) transmitter-receiver pairs for connecting workstations with remote computers and servers over distances up to 10 kilometers over single-mode fibre or even further over IP. The Emerald 4K delivers HD or 4K video over an IP network, a proprietary direct connection or both. It allows reliable extension and switching of video (DisplayPort or DVI), transparent USB 2.0, bidirectional analog audio and serial signals across any combination and number of physical and virtual servers. Emerald SE units give users an economical point of entry into KVM-over-IP and support a measured, cost-effective migration to enterprise KVM matrix switching through a simple license upgrade.

At ISE 2019, Black Box will demonstrate how its iCOMPEL interactive digital signage platform with system-on-chip technology empowers users to build eye-catching signage, stream content from websites and visualise timetables, events and useful wayfinding or emergency messages. Users can easily play, upload and share images, presentations, videos, and audio media files on any HDMI screen. The platform supports 4K Ultra HD/HD and simplifies creation and playout of HTML5-based content. To facilitate updates and system management, iCOMPEL allows for remote device management and configuration and provides on-screen diagnostics and error alerts.

  • The company’s Control Bridge is a complete multisystem and room control system for conference rooms, control rooms, and building automation. Using a single touch panel to control KVM, AV and other in-room devices, users can program room temperature, control video wall solutions, turn lights on and off remotely, or tap a preset configuration to get a room ready for a presentation with the touch of a button.
  • The Black Box MediaCento IPX HDMI-over-IP distribution solution enables users to transmit up to 4K HDMI video over Ethernet to a virtually unlimited number of screens as far as the local network reaches. Deployed along with the MediaCento controller, the system becomes an IP-based matrix switch and video wall processor for up to 8×8 screens.
  • The VideoPlex 4000 video wall controller from Black Box simplifies creation of eye-catching DP/HDMI video walls with an infinite number of monitors. The stand-alone video wall controller/scaler outputs high-resolution HDMI video (up to 4K) to four monitors per device. Because the controller supports daisy-chaining, non-rectangular screen arrangements, and any mix of monitor orientations, users can create a virtually unlimited multi-monitor canvas.
  • The IN-SESSION meeting room booking system makes it easy to effectively manage the occupancy of boardrooms, conference rooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, classrooms and any other meeting place. IN-SESSION integrates seamlessly with the existing email server and allows users to make instant reservations — and extend or cancel existing meetings — directly from its touch panel.
