Luxul Announces Commercial-Grade AV Over IP Networking Lineup

On tap for Infocomm 2019 in Orlando is the introduction of a line of gigabit switches from Luxul-- ripe for AV over IP installations.

As consumers’ appetite for 4K, 8K, faster networking speed and other bandwidth-intensive technologies continues to grow, AV over IP solutions have enjoyed a burst of popularity. Luxul is a company that’s helping bring AV over IP expand into new markets with a new line of gigabit switches. The products will be officially unveiled at InfoComm 2019, June 12-14, in Orlando, Fla.

“With the rise in popularity of AV over IP distribution, the network switch is now the matrix — but not just any switch will do,” says Brannon Young, Luxul's vice president of Business Development.

“A managed switch with QoS, VLAN, or IGMP support is usually required. Luxul managed switches support all three of these protocols, with the addition of full-speed backplanes to easily handle data traffic. They are perfect for classrooms, boardrooms, huddle rooms, and other professional environments, and we can't wait for attendees to see them in action at InfoComm.”

Although Young doesn’t mention the benefits of these products to residential installations, they are an option for smart homes with heavy networking use.
