Aurora Multimedia will present several new audio and video products at InfoComm 2015.
Aurora’s InfoComm lineup includes a wide range of solutions made to simplify the installation and delivery for next-generation media applications.
IPX 4K Video Over IP Series With IPBaseT
At InfoComm 2015, Aurora will be showcasing the IPX-TC1 Audio and Video over IP Transceiver. Leveraging Aurora’s IPBaseT Technology, the device is the market’s first 4K2K transceiver with zero compression and zero latency.
Combining the ability to use the unit as a transmitter or receiver, the solution simplifies overall system design, ordering, stocking, and deployment. Equipped with an option slot to add IP capabilities such as USB 2.0 over IP or Dante audio, the complete, distributed system also enables audio, video, data, and control to be securely delivered to one or many units using standard 10G Ethernet fiber or copper switches.
The IPX-TC1 can support up to 128×128 channels with HDCP (virtually unlimited without HDCP) and provides users with an OSD menu and Web-server to deliver incredible ease of use.
The new DXP-62 scaler accepts up to four HDMI inputs and two VGA/YPbPr/Composite inputs and scales up to 1920×1200 HD resolution at 60Hz via the units HDMI and HDBaseT simultaneous outputs.
Leveraging One Room – One Cable features, the HDBaseT output will pass PoH power to the awaiting HDBaseT receiver as well as RS-232 and IR control for the display. The unit will be available in packages with any of Aurora’s award-winning DXE-CAT receivers allowing the customer to configure with onboard amplification, relay control and background/paging integration for a complete single cable solution. With the addition of four external audio inputs, additional MIC input with independent volume control, de-embedding line level stereo output and auto sensing/switching video inputs, the DXP-62 is perfect for classrooms, conference rooms, and A/V cart applications.
One Room — One Cable Kits
Aurora’s product display will also feature the company’s three single-package One Room — One Cable kits. Packaged with two ceiling tile loudspeakers, a dual-input HDBaseT wall plate switcher, HDBaseT receiver with 2x35W amplifier, and an eight-button in-wall control panel, the kit makes the installation process simple by only requiring a single cat-cable between switchers and displays.
Comprised of the ORC-1, ORC-2 and ORC-3, the solutions enable more efficient out-of-box setups for today’s classrooms, conference rooms, and other single room A/V applications via Web-based control, HD video distribution, IR, and RS-232 connectivity.
VTUNE Pro 4K Tuner
The Aurora VTUNE Pro 4K tuner is the industry’s first 4K2K RF Tuner/IPTV all-in-one solution. Designed for any integrated system requiring IPTV, ATSC, QAM, NTSC and PAL, the tuner is capable of decoding MPEG2, MPEG4, VC-1, H.264, and H.265 with resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz via both RF and LAN. In addition, the device is equipped with an onboard 4K scaler for viewing 1080P HD content on 4K displays.
QXT-700 HD Platform-Agnostic Touch Panel
Aurora’s 7-inch QXT-700 quad-core HD touch panel is a platform-agnostic Web-server based solution embedded with an integrated control system. Featuring a 1280×800 resolution HD screen and 2D/3D graphic accelerator, the unit ensures both stunning graphics and a responsive GUI experience for a wide variety of environments.
Equipped with a quad-core processor, PoE-enabled 1 Gbps LAN port, multiple on-board RS-232/IR/Relays, as well as DIO ports, the QXT-700 is specifically designed to bring more efficient control to any conference room, classroom, or hospitality A/V application. For seamless video streaming, the solution features a MPEG2/H.264 high definition decoder while a built-in Web server accommodates iPad, Android, and MS tablet connectivity without the need to install any additional apps.
The TCW3 is a three-gang transceiver wall plate with dual HDMI inputs and a single HDMI output. Its modular SFP+ port for single or multimode fiber (also available in a copper 10G version) makes it the first fiber-based networked HDMI wall plate on the market (a copper 10G version is also available).
When configured as a transmitter (input), the auto-detectable HDMI inputs allow for two sources to be selected from a single wall plate over the network. HDMI output becomes a local loop-through for the selected source. When configured as an output, the TCW3 really shines — it serves as an output HDMI plate installed behind the display for easy wiring. In this scenario, in addition to the networked matrix sources, the two HDMI inputs become local source inputs for in-room viewing.
DXM Third Generation Matrix Switchers
DXM third generation Matrix switchers, the DXM-88-G3 8×8 matrix, DXM-1616-G3 16×16, and the DXM-3232-G3 32×32 card-cage matrix systems. Updated to 4K UHD, these completely new systems add features to the system, such as embedding Aurora’s QXT touch panel control engine as the main interface for the matrix.
The front panel will now house the new QXT-700 touch panel offering not only control for the Matrix but full control for the entire system adding IP, RS-232, IR, relays, and DIO ports directly to the Matrix. Additional updates include an embedded 1G network switch allowing Ethernet to pass directly over the HDBaseT inputs and outputs for streamlining wiring infrastructure throughout a facility. The DXM-G3 system provides PoH for all Aurora HDBaseT peripherals (HDBaseT wall plates and receivers). The system also adds audio breakaway switching giving complete flexibility for multi-zone audio enhancement.
