Zigen Launches IP-Logic Video & Audio Distribution System
HD/IP connectivity solutions provider Zigen will begin shipping in June IP-Logic - what it says is the first-on-the-market plug-and-play AV-over-IP platform to include its own proprietary audio matrix. IP-Logic enables the streaming of any 4K/60Hz 4:4:4 source to any display. The IP-Logic transmitter/receiver units come with independent scalers to allow seamless video distribution in mixed display environments.
Zigen’s patent-pending IP-Logic platform optionally offers line-level audio breakouts that can pull audio from any source, Ethernet AVB networking and the IP-Logic technology spectrum enables integrators to make a single product investment that will perform across markets, says the company. Making the Zigen IP-Logic product unique, according to the company, is that it enables products to play in multiple audio networking environments, including AES67 and ST2110, with complete control from Dante/SAP, RAVENNA, Livewire+, NMOS, and DashBoard.
Designed to be plug and play with autonomous EDID management, automatic scaling, and bezel compensation (up to 64mm), IP-Logic also provides near-zero latency and embedded audio network solutions. Traditionally, an installation includes a video switch, audio switch, audio de-embedder, video scaler, and in some cases keyboard and mouse for commercial environments. With IP-Logic, these products are all contained in one system. In addition, says the company, its ZigNet remote diagnostics tool that works with the IP-Logic platform can help to eliminate unnecessary truck rolls.
The system’s flexibility enables the creation of video walls up to 32x32 within one system, using up to 32 source tiles on one display. Also a possibility is the creation of multiple video walls on the same network. With IP-Logic extending 1 Gig Ethernet to each transmitter / receiver, there is no need to add additional switches or wires, saving time and resources, says the company.
Key features of the IP-Logic product line include but are not limited to: near-zero latency; 4K/60Hz 4:4:4 Dolby Vision on 10-Gig managed infrastructure; and a comprehensive set of embedded audio networking solutions that are virtually backward- compatible with all SDVoE partner products.
Key video features include: PIP; Tiling; Multi-View; Video Wall; Scale Up/Down; Seamless Switching; Genlock; OSD & Thumbnail Live preview.
