Extron NAV Systems Now Support Third-Party Control


Extron is pleased to announce that the NAV Pro AV over IP platform can now be controlled by third-party control systems. This free NAVigator LinkLicense for Third-Party Control enables a Secure Shell (SSH) interface that permits SIS commands from third-party control systems to make and break NAV streaming connections in addition to various other system functions. The NAVigator System Manager is required, and acts as a secure, centralized communication bridge for end-to-end encrypted control of all NAV endpoints. The third-party control interface facilitates secure switching of NAV encoders and scaling decoders via the NAVigator System Manager as well as the ability to query, configure, and control various system status and parameters. Extron Pro Series control systems must be used for applications that require control of Secure Platform Devices on NAV endpoints such as RS-232 and IR control ports.

“With our latest LinkLicense, our customers can integrate the award-winning NAV System with their existing control systems,” says Casey Hall, Chief Marketing Officer at Extron. “This empowers our customers to leverage legacy control products while taking advantage of the powerful and innovative NAV platform.”

The NAV Series is the only no-compromise, Pro AV over IP solution that streams high quality, ultra-low latency video and audio signals over standard IP networks. Utilizing Extron’s patented PURE3 codec, NAV delivers groundbreaking performance with real-time, lossless video over IP at resolutions up to 4K @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. PURE3’s Intelligent Selective Streaming (ISS) leverages low motion content to achieve extremely low bitrates while maintaining visually lossless performance with robust immunity to network errors. The NAV Series is the only solution that offers full interoperability between 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet encoders and decoders. The NAV Series is purpose-built to support secure, demanding professional AV applications.
