Savant Intros 4K/60 AV Over IP System


Savant
has announced the introduction of a 4K video over IP switching platform that that Savant is actually targeting at both the HomeAV market as well as the ProAV market.

Savant claims this new product line delivers 4K/60 4:4:4 HDR video distribution over IP with (again, this is their claim) “zero frame latency.” That said, it does use a 10GbE switch and has both fiber and copper options. A transmit chassis for centralized sources and distributed receivers is the hub of the system that includes down-mixing capabilities and audio breakout options.

Advanced video processing features supported by the new platform include multi-video/video tiling, video wall and multi-switching applications. Not many specs are available yet as this is being launched this week at ISE here in Amsterdam but it will begin shipping in Q3 2017.

The product will eventually be posted here.
