VN-Matrix 250 Series

HDCP-Compliant HDMI and RGB Video Over IP Encoders and Decoders

Most Innovative Products of 2013

The VN-Matrix® 250 Series provides real-time transmission of high resolution HDCP-compliant HDMI, DVI, or RGB video across standard IP networks for use in real-time streaming, recording, and playback applications. The VN-Matrix 250 Series accept HDMI and RGB signals at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and 2048x1080, streams video and audio over an IP network, and decodes content back to the original source resolution. Designed specifically to support mission critical AV applications, the VN-Matrix 250 Series supports streaming of commonly used AV signals, including HDCP-encrypted video. Stereo analog and HDMI-embedded audio signals are both supported, providing compatibility with embedded display speakers or existing audio systems. VN-Matrix is ideal for applications with the most demanding quality requirements, such as command and control, simulation, medical, and distance collaboration with complex computer visualizations.

PURE3 Codec

VN-Matrix products apply Extron's PURE3® Codec, a unique wavelet-based compression technology that exceeds many of the performance characteristics of standards-based compression systems. The VN-Matrix 250 Series offers real-time performance and low latency, making it ideal for live event streaming, distance collaboration, and remote control applications that use video. Encoded video signals are processed using 4:4:4 color quantization and apply visually lossless compression maintaining original source quality and native resolution. The PURE3 Codec excels at streaming high resolution video or graphic data in real-time, mission critical applications where maintaining original source quality is essential to the application.
