This is where the signal starts – the MXNet Encoder/Transmitter device. Connect this to any HDMI source, and it will encode the audio/video signal into a multicast data format that can be routed to any Decoder endpoint within the project/installation. This device connects directly via category cable (CAT 6A recommended) or fiber optics to the MXNet Switch (AC-MXNET-SW48) or any other compatible multicast-capable managed L3 network switch. The AC-MXNET-1G-E is a part of the MXNet family of AV-over-IP products from AVPro Edge.
The AC-MXNET-1G-E will encode a full 4K 4:4:4 60Hz HDMI video signal – along with audio, control, power, and HDR metadata signals. These signals are passed to single or multiple Decoder endpoints via multicast routing through an MXNet or multicast compatible L3 managed network switch. And, it does all this with next to zero latency. MXNet Encoders encode audio/video/control signals into IP packets using an optimized JPEG2000 codec at a flexible data rate (200Mbps for 1080p content, 300Mbps for 4K30 content, 850Mbps at peak). The AC-MXNET-1G-E Encoder also supports stand-alone point-to-point applications when connected directly to an AC-MXNET-1G-D Decoder.
The AC-MXNET-1G-E Encoder is only one part of the MXNet Ecosystem that includes Encoders, Network Switches, Control Processors, and other various components designed to facilitate the building of a custom A/V distribution system. MXNet’s Ecosystem includes formatting such as resolution scaling, full EDID management, HDR and Dolby Vision metadata, multifaceted video walls, and includes the MXNet Mentor setup and control tool - making installations easy on the integrator, while also presenting a major WOW factor for your client.
