Black Box has introduced the next generation of its MCX multimedia distribution and management system, the MCX G2 series, which will be on show at ISE 2022. This builds on the performance of the original S9 and S7 series with several new features, including “best-in-class source-to-screen latency” (less than 18ms), one-port or two-port encoding devices, a video loop-through connection, USB-C and three-port USB 2.0 connectivity, plus PoE capability.
It believes these features will “provide for a more flexible solution, faster design/implementation and lower overall cost”.
MCX takes advantage of SDVoE and modern 10GbE infrastructure to allow AV and data payloads to exist on the same IT networks. Through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability, SDVoE ensures zero latency while offering significant cost savings along with enhanced system flexibility and scalability, according to Black Box.
Rather than deploy an entirely new network, users can take advantage of the software-defined system to leverage existing infrastructure for delivery of better-quality audio and video, which can translate to greater customer satisfaction and faster time to revenue.
