Debuting at ISE 2017 is the VLX Series, a visually lossless low-latency 1Gbps 4K AV-over-IP signal transceiver utilising Aurora Multimedia’s IPBaseT technology, which can be seen on Aurora’s stand. Aurora is changing the topology of AV with IPBaseT technology, which it claims can resolve all existing issues with reliability, serviceability, scalability, capability and inventory.
The VLX Series is comprised of three variations: two wall plates (VLX-TCW2V-C, VLX-TCW2H-C) and a box version (VLX-TC1-C).
Capable of 4K30 4:4:4, the VLX uses low compression (8:1) with low latency (25ms) to create a visually lossless image usable for digital signage, conference rooms, classrooms and houses of worship at a reasonable cost. The VLX takes further advances with videowall modes of up to 8x8 and image rotation for portrait videowalls. All VLX units have a Dante option to further increase the flexibility of the system.
Aurora’s IPBaseT combines a variety of 4K IP technologies and features under one uniﬁed protocol, using a simpliﬁed topology. For the VLX Series, some of the core capabilities of IPBaseT are visually lossless video with low latency, videowall, image rotation, digital audio, USB 2.0,
Ethernet and control. Utilising the bandwidth of standard 1Gbps copper, IPBaseT supports large scalable audio/video matrixing, and it does so while replacing multiple technologies and products with a single-box distributed platform.
