While some AVoIP products are focused on 10G, this family of HDMI over LAN senders (encoders) and receivers (decoders) uses video encoding techniques to distribute up to 64 Full-HD video signals to hundreds of displays on a simple 1G local area network (LAN). The devices also extend Serial RS-232 communications and IR remote signals. HDMI Audio is extracted and available on a convenient 3.5mm stereo jack on both the sender and the receiver. The FHD264-S Sender also provides local HDMI output. Installation and setup leverages a twoline front panel LCD for easy configuration and monitoring. The RS-232 serial ports on each unit can be used in SoIP mode (Serial over IP). This allows 3rd party IP controllers to directly control peripheral equipment via RS-232. All devices support IEEE 802.3af PoE (Power over Ethernet). Rack mount hardware is also available for housing up to 12 senders in 4U rack space.
