In order to provide integrators with superior-quality video distribution solutions that are easy to install and compatible with every modern control system, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today announced the immediate availability of a new Xantech® Premium 4K Video Over IP solution that uses Power over Ethernet (PoE) to deliver unlimited 4K video streams over a 1GB network switch with an imperceptible latency of just one frame.
The solution includes three products – a transmitter, a receiver and an advanced control module – that work together to deliver lossless HDMI signal, bi-directional IR and RS-232 over a single CAT cable at lengths up to 330 feet (100m). The solution’s wizard-based setup can be completed in just a few minutes from any device, greatly simplifying and expediting installation. Whether a project calls for a video wall, a large number of distributed 4K displays, or a combination of endpoint types, the flexible system enables drag-and-drop control with independent signal routing for video, audio, USB, IR, RS232 and CEC.
“The new Xantech 4K Video over IP solution delivers best-in-class usability, compatibility and power, allowing integrators to configure video distribution systems and videowalls of any size more easily, and complete jobs faster,” said Neal Ellsworth, NSC Product Manager, New Initiatives. “The system can expand to deliver content to infinite displays, and integrators only have to pay for what they need. In addition, end users gain simpler control with drag-and-drop routing through the Advanced Control Module, and the setup and user interface are the same across all major control systems.”
Xantech’s new Premium 4K Video over IP solution includes three SKUs:
- The XT-4K-VIP-TX: 4K Video over IP Transmitter with Audio Breakout that runs on PoE from the network switch or local PoE source. It transmits lossless HDMI, bi-directional IR and RS-232 over a single CAT cable up to lengths of 330 feet (100m).
- The XT-4K-VIP-RX: 4K Video over IP Receiver with Audio Breakout that runs on PoE from the network switch or local PoE source. It transmits lossless HDMI, bi-directional IR and RS-232 over a single CAT cable up to lengths of 330 feet (100m).
- The XT-4K-VIP-ACM: 4K Video over IP Advance Control module that allows simple third-party control of the Xantech Video over IP system using TCP-IP, RS-232 or IR. It is compatible with all major control systems, providing integrators with greater installation flexibility.
