Key Digital Debuts KD-IP1022 AV-Over-IP System for Command and Control Market

Key Digital has introduced something it’s calling enterprise AV-over-IP in the form of the KD-IP1022ENC (encoder) and KD-IP1022DEC (decoder) for sending video, audio and USB over a 1G network. With video wall processing, the encoder and decoder systems can create video walls with up to 16 vertical and 16 horizontal monitors.

With independent USB routing, the KD-IP1022 systems are designed for network operation centers, emergency operation centers and command and control systems. Operators can view and listen to any connected source and easily route keyboard and mouse plug-ins into PCs, Macs, NUCs and NVRs to manipulate data or control those devices. Audio sources may plug-in on the KD-IP1022 encoder’s HDMI input or analog audio input to then be routed to any HDMI and analog audio output on the decoder. Pre-amp functionality including volume, delay and bass/mid/treble control make the audio feed ideal for feeding directly into amplifiers or audio DSPs.

The KD-IP1022 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and can handle up to 4K/UHD 4:2:0/8bit color at 60 f/s. Supported lossless compressed digital audio formats include Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD Master Audio. A common obstacle with HD-over-IP from all manufacturers is dealing with lip sync issues caused by network latency. KD-IP1022 encoders and decoders feature analog audio de-embedding for installation with audio systems. The analog audio breakout is on a balanced / unbalanced phoenix terminal and features volume, muting and three-band EQ DSP features.

The KD-IP1022 features 4K/Ultra HD resolution with support for 4096×2160 or 3840×2160 24/25/30Hz at 4:4:4/8 Bit or 60Hz at 4:2:0/8 Bit (10.2 Gbps max bandwidth).

The KD-IP1022 uses EDID controls and comes with a built-in internal library with 15 EDID handshakes including 4K with HDR in addition to native EDID data copied from the output/display devices connected to the decoder. Key Digital’s proprietary Full Buffer System manages TMDS re-clocking and signal re-generation, HDCP authentication to source and display, EDID control handshake, and Hot Plug Detection Voltage. Hot Plug Detection Controls enables integrator to choose if active signal voltage is forced to connected input devices.

When integrated with a compatible PoE network switch, the KD-IP1022 does not require a power supply. With redundant power connection the system has added reliability for non-PoE integration using the included power supply.
