iMAGsystems CEO Gerry Raffaut says the award recognises the game-changing qualities of the new system, which allows Ethernet networks to truly become the backbone of AV systems.
“We couldn’t be more pleased,” Raffaut says. “Lightning has been selected from more than 2700 new products at ISE 2017, from more than 1200 exhibitors. It’s an enormous achievement. There was a lot of excitement surrounding our 4K canvas display at the show, which demonstrated Lightning’s multiview capabilities and the ease with which any 4K display can be turned into a high-resolution collaboration space.”
The advanced Lightning encoder/decoder delivers uncompressed 4K60, zero-latency digital video resolution using standard 10GbE infrastructure with an unmatched level of exibility and scalability, routing high resolution video to multiple destinations while retaining every pristine detail of the original source.
The integrator-friendly system allows video walls of up to 5×5 (25 displays), and any combination of asymmetrical matrix switching can be accommodated within the one system, rendering proprietary xed-sized matrix systems obsolete. New features include multi-source video compositing, video wall processing with bezel correction, broadcast quality scaling, and no-compromise support for IP-based switching and extension of true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) video over 100m of CatX or 30km of bre. The technology is based on the next-generation AptoVision Blue River NT2000 chipset, which is HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant, and supports the transmission of audio, GbE, 480Mbps USB 2.0, RS-232 and IR.
