HARMAN Professional Solutions has announced the introduction of AMX Jetpack, a new 3×1 switching, transport, and control platform for applications including K-12 classrooms and meeting spaces that offers simple room controls, multiple 4K60 video inputs, and voice lift for clearer communication with everyone in a space.
Jetpack combines 4K60 4:2:0 HDMI and USB-C video switching and distance transport, room control, wallplate accessibility, and audio amplification in a kit that requires no programming. The kit can be controlled through panel buttons, IR, RS-232, TCP/IP, a REST API, a Web GUI, and the Jetpack Management PC tool.
“We’re really excited to finally be able to bring Jetpack to the market,” says Jeff Burch, HARMAN Professional Solutions, director of video and control. “There has been an incredible need in K-12 and small meeting spaces for a kit that is both truly cost effective and that bundles all the features that these spaces can typically benefit from and will actually use. We designed Jetpack to present all kinds of possibilities for spaces and users and we built it to be really versatile to serve a wide range of needs.”
AMX Jetpack supports up to 4K60 4:2:0 HDCP2.2 and can transmit uncompressed video and audio up to 40m/131ft at 4K or 70m/230ft at 1080P over a single shielded Cat 6/6A/7 cable. USB pass-through is included to simplify smart board connections in K12 classrooms and meeting spaces. Also built-in are a USB-C and USB-B Host 2×1 USB Hub.
