MSolutions has partnered with the IPMX community to add further utility when bridging HDBaseT rooms through IPMX AV-over-IP networks. Leveraging the same network-level device management structure, MSolutions’s new 4×1 HDBaseT switch works in concert with HDBaseT to IPMX gateway products to bring cameras, projectors and other HDBaseT equipment onto AV-over-IP networks.

Expanding on SMPTE ST 2110 standards and developed by the same organizations including the Video Services Forum (VSF), the Advanced Media Workflow Association, Inc. (AMWA), and the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), IPMX is an emerging set of standards and open specifications for AV over IP. IPMX specifically addresses the ProAV industry’s need for open standards and interoperability to achieve successful IP transitions, with provisions for control, copy protection, connection management and security. Within this mix is the need to register and connect devices as they are added to IPMX networks. This process relies on open NMOS specifications to enable device discovery and registration (AMWA IS-04) and connection management (AMWA IS-05) when bringing products into the IP domain.

HDBaseT remains a robust and powerful in-room solution for connecting Pro AV equipment, with a large base of deployed products. New deployments continue to leverage the cost effectiveness and security of HDBaseT. The new MSolutions MS-0401E complements new HDBaseT to IPMX gateways by allowing HDBaseT products connected to a HDBaseT switch to be available on the broader AV-over-IP network. It also adheres to the same open specifications powering IPMX and remains controllable from standard NMOS controllers.

Visitors to the HDBaseT Alliance stand (2M650) will see a demonstration of IPMX gateways and the MSolutions MS-0401E bringing AV equipment onto IPMX networks. The MSolutions component will show how users can toggle between four cameras – one per input – to bring them into the AV over IP environment.

MSolutions will show a similar demonstration and the new MS-0401E at its ISE stand (2G300).
