Thanks to all that visited the Aurora booth last week at InfoComm 2015. It was great meeting with all our dealer partners, consultants and end users who stopped by. 2015 was another record breaking / award winning show for the company: the V-Tune Pro 4K took 1st place for Video Distribution Systems in the 2015 CI Best Awards at InfoComm 2015, and IPBaseT IPX-TCW3 4K Transceiver Wall Plate was awarded the Best Of Show at InfoComm 2015 award.
Below is a review of the new products we showcased in the booth. For further information or to schedule a personal demo, please contact us directly or our international distribution partners for those who visited from outside the US.
NEW IPX Series – 4K Video over IP with IPBaseT
Leveraging Aurora’s IPBaseT™ Technology, the award-winning IPX series transceivers are the market’s first 4K transceiver with zero compression and zero latency. Combining the ability to use the unit as a transmitter or receiver, the solution greatly simplifies overall system design, ordering, stocking, and deployment.
Don’t be fooled by the appearance – the IPX series transceivers are not point-to-point extenders. Combine as many units as you need on a 10G network to create a nearly limitless “distributed matrix” system. Place transceivers at your sources and at your displays and they link up automatically to provide you with uncompressed 4K video distribution. Aside from the simplicity of the system design, installation, and troubleshooting, all IPX units come complete with a video wall processor and a control processor built in – at no additional cost.
