NetworkHD™ 200 Series AV Over IP H.264 Multiview Decoder

Categories:
Part Number NHD-220-RX

The NetworkHD™ NHD-220-RX is a multi-view receiver for NetworkHD 200 series systems. Capable of displaying up to 8 simultaneous video feeds on a single display in a variety of configurations. Users can select between single, dual and quad view grid layouts as well as several other configurations. Any NetworkHD video stream can be switched to any desired position in the display instantly thanks to WyreStorm QuickSync™ technology.

Best of all the NHD-220-RX features an improved 4K output to enable 4K scaling of images or 4 images to be displayed in a grid at their native 1080p resolution.

As well as all this the NHD-220-RX features the same great features as other NetworkHD receivers including RS-232 and CEC control of connected displays, analogue audio breakout, forced resolution output scaling and separate audio switching.

The NHD-220-RX is backwards compatible so it can be added to any existing NetworkHD 200 series system for the ultimate total AV over IP distribution, control and monitoring solution. 

Key Features

  • Multiple layouts to choose from including grid view and special layouts
  • 4K output for high quality scaling of single images or native display of multiple 1080p images
  • Instant switching with WyreStorm QuickSync™
  • Integration with leading 3rd party control systems, including WyreStorm Enado and the new NetworkHD Touch app for iPad

Overview

The latest in WyreStorm’s NetworkHD 200-Series of H.264 streaming solutions, the NHD-220-RX multi-view decoder supports up to 8 simultaneous video feeds from NetworkHD encoders on a single display, with users able to select from up to ten on-screen viewing layouts, including single, dual and quad-view grid layouts, as well a number of preset multi-screen arrangements.

The encoder features 4K output for high quality 4K scaling of single images or display of 4 images in a grid formation at their native 1080p resolution. The NHD-220-RX offers integration with 3rd party control systems, including the new NetworkHD Touch iPad app with drag and drop source selection and live video preview app for iPad and WyreStorm Enado control solution enabling control of multiple sources without needing to switch sources on the display.

Utilizing WyreStorm’s QuickSync™ technology for industry-leading switching speed, any NetworkHD video feed offers instant switching between sources to any desired position in the display with zero image freeze or black screen that can detract from the viewing experience.

In addition to these features, as part of the NetworkHD family, the NHD-220-RX shares the same benefits as other decoders in the line, including RS-232 and CEC control of connected displays, analog audio breakout, forced resolution output scaling and separate audio switching.  Furthermore, as the NHD-220-RX is fully backwards compatible it can be added to any existing NetworkHD 200-Series system.

The NHD-220-RX is ideal for commercial monitoring applications of any kind, but especially suited to the hospitality sector where managers or venue operators may wish to quickly and easily confirm the status of a large number of sources or displays at a glance from a central location.  Users can choose to display all connected sources within a system to verify content is being played back correctly without switching through each source manually or needing a large number of separate displays.  Equally, the NHD-220-RX can be used to confirm the content being played on individual displays that staff or managers cannot physically see from their central location behind a bar or in an office.  A switch can even be used on the control system used to toggle between both these monitoring functions for a total overview of the I/O status of the venue AV system.

In conventional monitoring applications, either the same number of screens are required in the monitoring station as there are displays in the venue, or the same number of standard decoders have to be connected to a multi-view system for multiple feeds to appear on a single monitoring screen.  However, with 8 video feeds able to be streamed onto a single screen from each NHD-220-RX, multiple units can be combined to monitor an entire venue while offering a significant reduction in the both number of decoders and screens required for far simpler, more efficient monitoring applications that are considerably lighter on the budget.

In addition to dramatically reducing the number of components required in an installation, the NHD-220-RX can also provide video wall-like functionality from a single large format display or can be combined to create custom screen configurations comprising individual screens, multi-view and video walls, with the virtually infinite scalability of the NetworkHD platform supporting multiple monitoring stations across any size deployment.
