Ocean Matrix Releases New H.264-based AV-Over-IP Extenders

Ocean Matrix

Ocean Matrix released a new series of H.264-based AV-over-IP extenders with several options, including units with PoE, IR control, H.264 video compression, two-channel audio and more. All of the new series are HDMI, HDCP compliant and transmit signals up to 394 feet over a single Cat5e/6 cable for point to point transmission and support multi-layered applications when used with an Ethernet switch or router. Sold separately, all transmitter and receiver units are CE and FCC certified. The transmitter and receiver include two-channel audio, IR control and allows for setting IP addresses using a web browser for point-to-many setups.

Both the transmitter and receiver models use H.264 video compression and power over Ethernet. The series also includes bi-directional RS232, IR remote control and supports dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP). The primary application for these products is streaming video — not real-time AV-over-IP.

With four RJ45 ports each, the 1×4 transmitter and 1×4 receiver function as splitters in daisy-chain network configurations allowing up to three layers. Both also feature wide-band IR control and LPCM two-channel audio.

The PoE single gang Wall Plate units, with low bandwidth H.264 video compression for transmission over LANs, are designed for wall-mounting in conference rooms or classrooms. The receiver functions as a two-channel stereo HDMI audio extractor to a 3.5mm connector.
