ELAN releases 4K Video over IP product line
ELAN by Core Brands has announced that it is now shipping three newly launched Video over IP products.
Designed to bring lossless video and virtually latency-free distribution of HDMI video to installations requiring 4K over a 1G Ethernet switch, ELAN’s latest offerings comprises of the EL-4KPM-VIP-TX transmitter, EL-4KPM-VIP-RX receiver and EL-4KPM-VIP-CTRL control module.
The line incorporates ELAN VoIP’s built-in video scaling to ensure that the optimal video signal is delivered to each display, with the manufacturer’s configuration software on offer to support the installation process – requiring no knowledge of networks or creating VLANs.
The products have four operational modes suited for different project requirements, including matrix distribution (requiring a 1GB network switch, for unlimited configuration options), video wall presentation (available with or without a network switch), one-to-many HDMI distribution and one-to-one HDMI extender (both of which require no network switch).
The range works with all third-party control systems and HDMI audio formats, including Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio transmission. They can be powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) from either a PoE enabled Ethernet switch or a PoE injector. The EL-4KPM-VIP-TX model may also be powered locally when PoE is not an option.
“The industry has been requesting a Video over IP solution that is extremely scalable for today’s large residential installations, and this new line does just that,” commented Mike Jordan, Core Brands vice president, product management. “ELAN dealers now have virtually infinite configurability options for their installations.”
He added: “With the launch of ELAN’s new line-up of HDMI video distribution products, and its new VoIP solutions, the brand is truly back in the residential video distribution space.”
