NetworkHD™ 200 Series AV Over IP H.264 Encoder with Video Wall Processing

Categories:
Part Number NHD-200-TX

The NHD-200-TX Encoder offers multi-format input support for transmissions of DVI, HDMI, Component and VGA and features video wall processing functionality, which can either be paired with an NHD-200-RX Decoder for matrix switching or an NHD-210-RX Decoder to decode video wall transmissions, with both decoders including HDMI and analog audio breakout outputs.

Sharing many of the same benefits as its 100 Series sibling, the NetworkHD 200 Series offers configurable high quality, low bandwidth H.264 compression supporting 1920x1200@60fps at 40Mb/s and below, and instant switching between sources with both high and low latency modes, but with powerful video wall functionality over LAN that makes it the best all-round solution for commercial AV installations.

Key Features:

  • Multi-format HD AV over IP distribution utilising H.264 compression for matrix switching
  • Up to 16x16 video wall functionality over the LAN
  • Multi-Format input supports DVI, HDMI, Component & VGA input
  • Plug and Play configuration with auto IP addressing and Bonjour discovery of components
  • Instant switching between video sources with both high quality and low latency modes
  • NetworkHD Touch iPad control app for live video previews and drag and drop source selection

Overview

The NetworkHD™ 200 Series is a matrix-based AV over IP solution for distrubution of multiple HD content and sources to multiple HD display devices over a network. With its simple system configuration and robust feature set, it provides the best value in networked video distribution, without compromising quality. 

Sharing many of the same benefits as its 100 Series sibling, the NetworkHD 200 Series offers configurable high quality, low bandwidth H.264 compression supporting 1920x1200@60fps at 40Mb/s and below, and instant switching between sources with both high and low latency modes, but with powerful video wall functionality over LAN that makes it the best all-round solution for commercial AV installations.

The NHD-200-TX Encoder offers multi-format input support for transmissions of DVI, HDMI, Component and VGA and features video wall processing functionality up to 16x16 screens, which can either be paired with an NHD-200-RX Decoder for matrix switching or an NHD-210-RX Decoder to decode video wall transmissions, with both decoders including HDMI and analog audio breakout outputs.

With PoE support and bidirectional RS-232, NetworkHD is compatible with the WyreStorm Enado control interface for an effortless creation of scalable ‘one-manufacturer’ total HD distribution and control over IP solution.  What's more, the 200 Series is also compatible with the award-winning NetworkHD Touch app for iPad, giving access to all sources and displays in a NetworkHD system, including live video previews and drag and drop selection at the flick of a finger.

Offering instant switching between sources and Video Wall, with both high quality and low latency modes supporting resolutions up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz, plug and play configuration with auto IP addressing and Bonjour discovery of components significantly simplifies initial set up and configuration as well as future expansion of the system.  

Such flexibility and functionality sees NetworkHD 200 Series applications extend to not only digital signage, but also hospitality, education, corporate installations of any size, allowing projects to grow simply and cost effectively as the needs of the client change.
