The IP200UHD-TX is an industry leading 4K HDCP 2.2 HDMI transmitter that using visually lossless compression technology delivers HDMI, Bi-directional IR, RS-232 & USB/KVM up to lengths of 100m over standard network architecture. The IP200UHD-TX can be powered via PoE from the Network switch or locally should the switch not support PoE. With multiple configuration options available the Multicast solution is ideal for both commercial and residential installations.
The IP200UHD-RX is an industry leading 4K HDCP 2.2 HDMI video scaling receiver that using visually lossless compression technology delivers HDMI, Bi-directional IR, RS-232 & USB/KVM up to lengths of 100m over standard network architecture. The IP200UHD-RX can be powered via PoE from the Network switch or locally should the switch not support PoE. With multiple configuration options available the Multicast solution is ideal for both commercial and residential installations.
The new ACM200 Advanced Control Module allows for advanced third party control of the Multicast system using TCP/IP, RS-232 and IR. The ACM200 includes a web interface module for control and configuration of the Multicast system and features 'drag and drop' source selection with video preview and independent routing of IR, RS-232, USB/KVM, Audio and Video. Pre-built Blustream product drivers simplify Multicast product installation and negate the need for an understanding of complex network infrastructures.
Key Features of the ACM200:
Web interface module for configuration and control of the Blustream Multicast system
Intuitive 'Drag & Drop' source selection with video preview feature for active monitoring of system status
Advanced signal management for independent routing of Video, Audio, IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM
Auto system configuration
2x RJ45 LAN connections to bridge existing network to Multicast video distribution network, resulting in:
- Better system performance as network traffic is separated
- No advanced network setup required
- Independent IP address per LAN connection
- Allows simplified TCP / IP control of Multicast system
Our UHD Multicast distribution platform allows distribution of HDMI video over a 1GB Network switch. The ACM200 Control Module allows advanced third party control of the Multicast system using TCP / IP, RS-232 and IR.
