C2G, a brand of Legrand, now offers HDMI over IP in 4K resolution to stream high-quality video over the network using a new extender system featuring a decoder, encoder and network controller.
Ideal for retail, corporate, security, and education environments, the C2G HDMI over IP 4K extender system provides integrators with multiple HDMI over network configurations, ensuring the flexibility to support a digital signage system, a video wall, and point-to-point extension, including multiview capabilities.
C2G‘s HDMI over IP Encoder and Decoder allow HDMI audio/video signals to be extended at up to 4K resolution via a Cat-6 or Cat-6a cable. They support multiple configurations and have the ability to provide scalable audio/video matrix switching to over 600 devices.
The encoder accepts 4K video @ 30Hz and streams the content to any H.264/H.265 decoder to be displayed on a 4K monitor. The encoder may also send H.264/H.265 video streams to other H.264/H.265 compatible decoder devices.
The C2G HDMI over IP Decoder can upscale lower resolution video signals up to 4K @ 60Hz to be displayed on a 4K monitor. The decoder also accepts H.264/H.265 video streams from other transmitting devices of up to 4K @ 60Hz. Both devices support PoE and may be powered by a PoE Ethernet switch.
The C2G Network Controller for HDMI over IP is a Linux-based PC that allows users to control HDMI over IP products, supporting video wall and multiview connectivity. It can be managed via a web interface or the C2G AVoIP control smartphone and tablet app.
When installed on a local area network (LAN), it scans the LAN for connected C2G HDMI over IP products, allowing the user to auto-discover, configure, manage connectivity, and support firmware upgrades for the AV over IP devices through the web interface.
An Application Program Interface (API) is available for supporting several third-party partner control applications running on smartphones and tablets.
