Frequently the management software for an AV over IP solution is overlooked. The software is ultimately what determines the experience with the AV over IP product during installation, usage, and troubleshooting. Aurora Multimedia introduced its latest IPBaseT Manager web server tool which enhances the existing SDVoE server capabilities. Aurora is the only SDVoE adopter that can make routes by IP address or Host name not just MAC address. Extreme USB is now a unified protocol for easier USB routing. Virtual comm ports allows for the control system to directly connect via Telnet to the RS-232 of a unit therefore a macro is required. Additionally, it fully supports secured socket communications between the server and the control system for full end to end security. New enhancements include statistics, tagging, alerts, user profiles, grouping, and much more. Compatible with the IPX and VLX lines.
