Biamp TesiraLUX puts the V in AVB

With TesiraLUX™ the ‘V’ in AVB is here. TesiraLUX introduces low-latency, 4K-networked video capabilities to the Tesira® ecosystem through the addition of the AVB/TSN-enabled video encoders and decoders.

This groundbreaking solution transports both audio and video signals over a single network through the reliability of AVB/TSN. Tesira, with TesiraLUX, is the only network AV solution on the market today that can handle both audio and video processing.

The TesiraLUX product line includes an AVB video encoder (TesiraLUX IDH-1) and an AVB video decoder (TesiraLUX OH-1). The encoder features one HDMI port, one DisplayPort port, and two mic/line-level analog inputs. The decoder includes one HDMI port and two line-level analog outputs.

TesiraLUX supports the latest advancements in video formats, including 4096×2160 at 60-Hz, high dynamic range (HDR) and the Rec. 2020 color space. It can accept video at up to 16-bit color depth with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling, as well as supports 8 channels of embedded PCM audio, which can be broken out to be routed and processed independently. The system also manages EDID automatically between the TesiraLUX device and the input source/output display thanks to scalers in both the encoder and decoder.

By utilizing AVB/TSN, TesiraLUX guarantees a total system latency of less than two frames (33 ms at 60 Hz), including scaling, compression, and network transit. AVB/TSN bandwidth reservation capabilities coupled with TesiraLUX’s bandwidth management tools also set up customers to create truly converged networks rather than dedicated AV media distribution network infrastructure.

TesiraLUX allows the integrator to make informed decisions about what to send over the network and helps them treat content types appropriately, resulting in visually lossless transmissions that make best use of the available bandwidth. Multiple software-based options are available for managing bandwidth, including setting maximum resolution, frame rate, and rate of compression. With both a 1-Gb (RJ-45) and a 10-Gb (SFP+) media port available, designers have a wide range of transmission options from which to choose.

Within a single software environment, system designers can create audio and video installations to match their exact specifications. Because TesiraLUX’s video partitions behave like Tesira’s audio partitions, designers have a modular and intuitive approach to system design and commissioning, resulting in significant time and cost savings for integrators. In addition, Tesira coordinates signal distribution so there’s no need to manually add audio delays for lip sync.

TesiraLUX’s feature set has been designed with the future in mind, and is capable of meeting the ever-growing video needs of even the most complex facilities.
