Extron Introduces Encoder and Decoder for Real Time Streaming of HDCP-Compliant HDMI Over IP

VN-Matrix 250 systems excel in applications with extremely demanding requirements

Anaheim, California (June 23, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce VN-Matrix 250 encoders and decoders, which provide real-time transmission of high resolution HDCP-compliant HDMI, DVI, or RGB video across standard IP networks for use in real-time streaming, recording, and playback applications. The VN-Matrix 250 Series accepts HDMI and RGB signals at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and 2048x1080, and streams video and audio over an IP network, preserving the native source resolution of digital or analog video sources. Stereo analog audio and HDMI-embedded audio signals are both supported, providing compatibility with embedded display speakers or existing audio systems. VN-Matrix 250 Series encoders and decoders use the PURE3 codec, which provides an unmatched combination of bit rate efficiency, low latency, visually lossless image quality, and a high immunity to network errors.

"When designing Extron's new VN-Matrix 250 products for streaming HDMI, we capitalized on years of experience with our high-performance VN-Matrix products," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The VN-Matrix 250 Series stands out from other streaming products with fully HDCP-compliant streaming and a variety of new capabilities, which provide solutions for real-time streaming and distance collaboration applications."

VN-Matrix 250 systems excel in applications with extremely demanding requirements such as command and control, training and simulation, or distance collaboration applications in government, aerospace, energy, or medical environments. With its very low encode and decode latency of just 70 ms, the VN-Matrix 250 Series is ideal for applications that must support bidirectional communication and real-time decision making. The combination of high quality, low delay, and flexible bit rate management makes the VN-Matrix 250 Series the ideal solution for many quality-critical applications.
