Hall Research Adds 1G AV-Over-IP Versa Product Line

The VERSA-4K from Hall Research is an AV-over-IP product line for 4K video, IR, RS232, audio and USB over a 1 Gigabit network. The system also offers automatic KVM switching, Telnet and web GUI control, USB device class filtering and PoE (Power over Ethernet) support.

The sender/encoder accepts any HDMI resolution including 4K, 60 Hz 4:4:4 with HDCP 2.2 and it includes an HDMI video loop output together with extracted HDMI audio for flexibility. The Receiver/Decoder includes an HDMI output with extracted HDMI audio, bidirectional IR, RS232 and four USB ports comprised of two USB1.1 ports for use with keyboard and mouse (auto switching based on user activity) and two general purpose USB 2.0 ports that support touch screens, memory devices and many other USB device functions.

Both the Sender and Receiver provide a front panel character-LCD that can be used to easily configure parameters such as IP settings, video multicast channel selection, assignment of device names and more. Receivers also include an IR remote controller that can be used to easily switch the video multicast channel.

In a point-to-point setup, no external network equipment is needed, as you can just connect a Cat6 cable up to 120 meters (400 feet) between the transmitter and receiver. In a traditional network setup, a dedicated gigabit network switch (with IGMP and Jumbo-frame support) is required. Each VERSA-4K includes a power supply adapter, however, if the network provides PoE, the power adapter is not required.

Here are all the specs.
