New for Vaddio in Las Vegas is the AV Bridge Matrix PRO, a complete professional AV solution designed to reduce the complexity of designing USB systems for meeting and lecture capture rooms that support multiple cameras and microphones. Based on Vaddio’s AV Bridge technology, the Matrix Pro adds audio and video mixing functionality directly into the box.
“The challenge with designing USB systems has been the limitation of a PC and its ability to support only one camera and one microphone on a USB System Bus,” explained CEO Rob Sheeley. “The AV Bridge Matrix PRO gives integrators the ability to add multiple cameras, microphones and other AV devices into PC-based system room design. It then manages the complex process of mixing, switching and controlling those devices into a single USB stream. We believe that this will be an easier and more cost-effective solution for our integrators who are designing lecture capture and UC conferencing systems.”
The Matrix Pro replaces a rack full of gear by combining a variety of capabilities: an AV encoder with simultaneous IP and USB 2.0 streaming, a four-input seamless HD video switcher, three Quick-Connect interfaces for Vaddio cameras, an 8 x 4 cross-point audio matrix mixer/switcher with AEC, four audio ports for Vaddio EasyUSB microphones with built-in AEC, and a web server for configuration programming, control and remote management.
