AV Over IP signal distribution system delivers stunning visuals
Fremont, CA – InfoComm booth C2800… Arista Corporation, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of video wall LCD displays, AV extenders, matrix switchers, AV MultiViewers, and related products for the AV installation and industrial markets, is pleased to announce the ARD-3002 AV over IP Multi-Function Transmitter/Receiver Series. Incorporating the latest SDVoE uncompressed 4K/60 4:4:4 AV over IP core technology combined with Arista’s video conversion technology, the system’s copper/fiber interface transmitters and receivers are designed to address complex requirements in the transmission, switching, and distribution of hybrid video signal sources over long distances.
The new ARD-3002 supports a wide range of video formats, including HDMI®, DVI-D, 3G-SDI, and 6G/12G-SDI. The ARD-3002 receiver has options to incorporate dual and quad HDMI/SDI outputs—enabling the system to fit into a wide range of application environments. The various modules available for the ARD-3002 offer the following features: 4K transmitter with HDMI 2.0 loopback, a transmitter with legacy VGA input, a receiver with dual 4K HDMI 2.0 splitter output, a receiver with quad 4K HDMI 2.0 splitter output, and a receiver offering quad 3G-SDI splitter output.
Like other products (ARD-3001) in the Arista IP Flash Caster family, the ARD-3002’sfeature set includes HDMI 2.0, HDR video, windowing and audio downmixing, audio embedding/de-embedding, and more. The ARD-3002 provides multi-source video compositing capabilities for multi-view, picture-in-picture (PIP), and picture and picture capabilities (PAP) within the AV signal distribution system. The IP Flash Caster’s multi-source video compositing capability enables each receiver to combine multiple video sources onto a single display to accomplish PIP and PAP.
Arista’s ARD-3002 provides video-splitting and bezel correction capabilities to create a full videowall of any size capabilities—without additional equipment. The system’s multi-source video compositing capability enables each receiver to automatically split an incoming video and render only a portion of the image as part of a video wall. Configurable bezel correction support compensates for the thickness of the bezel to hide the pixels needing to be obscured by the display bezel. The ARD-3002 can be controlled via Web-enabled control software, which puts the system’s AV control at one’s fingertips
Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation, commented on the company’s newest offering, “With a rich feature set, our new ARD-3002 IP Flash Caster expands on the capabilities of our other IP Flash Caster family of products. In addition to its 4K video signal management capability, the ARD-3002 provides USB, RS-232, IR and analog audio switching capability as well as a 1Gbps Ethernet pass through port. These features make the ARD-3002 an outstanding solution for a wide range of video signal distribution and display challenges commonly encountered in today’s complex AV installations. I’m confident integrators will find much to like.”
Arista’s ARD-3002 IP Flash Caster Series for AV over IP carries an MSRP starting from $1,699. The system is expected to be available June 1st, 2018.
