Blustream US is shipping a new AV-over-IP portfolio line called the Contractor Series IP50HD. Claiming no limitation on project size, the new 1080p transmitter and receiver pair include HD video over IP support for command and control rooms, digital signage and any other networked-AV KVM-based application.
The Blustream Contractor HD Video over IP distribution platform delivers AV and control signals over a 1Gb network and using the Blustream ACM200 control module, the IP50HD you can do virtual switching via a “Drag and Drop TV visual control application.” The IP50HD-TX 1080p HDMI transmitter and the IP50HD-RX 1080p HDMI video scaling receiver use H.265 compression to deliver HDMI, as well as bidirectional IR, RS-232 and USB/KVM up to 100 meters over a standard network architecture. The transmitter includes an HDMI loop-out for cascading to multiple devices. Both devices can be powered via PoE from the network switch or locally should the switch not support PoE. With multiple configuration options available, the multicast HD solution is ideal for both residential and commercial installations.
The Contractor Series IP50HD 1080p Video Distribution Solution is now shipping.
