There's no need to configure any IP settings (although more experienced users can do that if needed). Simply use rotary switches to set the transmitter and receivers to the same multicast channel and all IP multicasting settings are automatically configured; then just connect your source, your display(s), and the network switch. It's ready to go!
MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast is ideal for distributing digital signage content or other HD video and audio across an Ethernet network. Because the transmitter and receivers install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure, integration is easy. There's no need to run expensive dedicated links from a back room to digital signage in lobbies.
Signals that go for miles
The extender transmits up to 330 feet (100 m) per link, but goes up to 660 feet (200 m) with the network switch in the middle, between the transmitter and the receiver. You can even use fiber with media converters to go several miles if needed. Its signal is completely digital from end to end, so your digital content is never compromised.
Lossless compression for HD extension
MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast features IGMP support and packetizes signals so all your HD source content can be delivered anywhere you want over Ethernet wiring.
Many ways to configure
MediaCento works in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations. Just plug in as many receivers as you need at your remote screens. From one transmitter, you can have 16 different multicast groups to multiple receivers in multicast mode.
Visually lossless compression
The MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast units transmit broadcast-quality video and audio, and support full 1080p resolution no matter what the distance or the number of screens, as well as all common PC resolutions (XGA, SXGA, UXGA, WSXGA) up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz.
Optimal PC-to-screen performance
MediaCento features EDID copy function and is HDCP-compliant.
MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast supports RS-232 for configuration and control, and for extending bidirectional control signals. Use this serial link to switch screens on or off.
The MediaCento IPX PoE series can be powered using standard PoE network technology. Using a PoE network switch completely eliminates the need for external power supplies making the installation even easier.
Multicast video to screens in a video wall setup
Assign source video to any screen in a video wall. The MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast system supports customizable monitor array sizes for any video wall setup or application. Configure a wall for multiple rows and columns. You just need one transmitter and up to 64 receivers for an 8 x 8 wall. Each receiver scales and outputs the correct part of the picture for its video wall display.
MediaCento products come with lockable power and HDMI connectors for increased reliability.
