Anaheim, California (September 20, 2018) - Extron is pleased to introduce the NAV Series, the no-compromise Pro AV over IP platform that distributes and switches ultra-low latency, pixel perfect video, audio, and USB 2.0 signals over Ethernet networks. Utilizing Extron’s patented PURE3 codec, NAV delivers groundbreaking performance with visually lossless video over IP at resolutions up to 4K @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. PURE3's Intelligent Selective Streaming - ISS - leverages low motion content to achieve extremely low bitrates while maintaining visually lossless performance. Most codecs make compromises in either image quality, bandwidth requirements, or latency. Extron’s no-compromise PURE3 codec offers the best of all three with its simultaneous delivery of pixel perfect video, ultra-low latency, and bitrates that no other product can match. The NAV Series is the only streaming solution that offers both 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps encoders and decoders with compatibility across both systems. NAV can also deploy as a high-performance IP-based video and audio matrix, combining the flexibility of an IP-based system with the integration-friendly video and audio switching features found in conventional Extron matrix switchers.

"Our new NAV platform was purpose-built for the professional AV integrator, offering uncompromised quality and flexibility that works in virtually any environment," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. "NAV empowers AV integrators to create mixed 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Pro AV over IP applications that address a broader range of environments, delivering high-quality content with virtually no latency."

Part of the NAV Series, the NAVigator System Manager offers a user-friendly interface for centralized management, configuration, and control of NAV systems. NAVigator facilitates easy setup and configuration, and offers extensive features for monitoring, diagnostics, and troubleshooting. NAV encoders and decoders support analog audio, embedded digital HDMI audio, and AES67 audio over IP, facilitating integration with DMP 128 Plus audio DSPs or other IP-enabled audio components. NAV systems are fully compliant with HDCP 2.2 for transmission of UHD content encrypted with the HDCP standard. Purpose-built to support demanding professional AV applications, the highly-scalable and powerful NAV platform enables secure deployment of AV signals to thousands of endpoints.
