Black Box (Booth 5173) is featuring its new MediaCento IPX multicast extender system. This IP streaming solution multicasts HDMI video and audio to up to 250 screens on a network. Because its transmitter and receivers install directly into an existing LAN infrastructure, integration is easy. A single transmitter can deliver multimedia to many displays, and the system offers easy, costeffective scalability. Just install a receiver for any display added to an application. The system uses visually lossless compression technology, packetizing signals so source content can be delivered anywhere there’s Ethernet wiring. Simply use a standard Gigabit network switch with IGMP to control the multicast traffic. The MediaCento IPX system uses standardized Ethernet protocols and transmits 1080p video digitally up to 328ft. (100 meters) per link, but goes even longer with additional network switches added to the mix. Plus, it is HDCP-compliant for distributing Blu-ray content.
