Anaheim, California (April 12, 2010) - At the 2010 NAB Show, Extron Electronics will exhibit the VN-Matrix® 200 Series and VN-Matrix 300 Series encoders and decoders for real-time transmission of high resolution audio visual content across standard IP networks. Unveiled under the Extron banner for the first time since the acquisition of the Products Division of Electrosonic, the VN-Matrix Series is ideal for live viewing, collaboration, storage, and playback of high quality AV signals. With the scalable VN-Matrix system, you can start small and add additional encoders and decoders later to turn your IP network into a virtual routing matrix switcher that is practically limitless in size. The VN-Matrix 200 Series enables streaming of DVI & RGB video, while the VN-Matrix 300 Series supports SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI video. Both VN-Matrix Series can be used on uncorrected networks and provide visually lossless picture quality for large projected images and high resolution graphics.

VN-Matrix Systems encode video or graphics sources at resolutions up to HD or WUXGA, along with bidirectional audio and data signals, and decode the content back to the original source resolution utilizing Extron’s PURE3™ Codec, a unique wavelet-based compression technology. The PURE3 Codec is specifically designed for network transmission and provides an unmatched combination of bit rate efficiency, low latency, and high image quality. PURE3 exceeds many of the performance characteristics of existing compression formats and provides exceptionally robust protection against network errors, making it ideal for quality-critical applications.

"These new products will allow our resellers to offer AV streaming solutions that enable enterprise collaboration, especially for specialized, mission-critical projects," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "As with every Extron product, we're committed to providing the highest level of service, support, and solutions for the VN-Matrix products."

A powerful solution for streaming video, graphics, audio and control signals over IP, the VN-Matrix Series simplifies complex systems. Because it supports existing cabling and network infrastructure, the VN-Matrix Series is economical and easy to deploy.
