Savant has announced the addition of new features and hardware to their IP Video and Audio distribution systems. Many of the new features added to the IP Video and Audio products were engineered based upon feedback from Savant’s network of integrators.
Audio Processing Onboard
The Savant IP Video platform with 4K/60 4:4:4 resolution now comes complete with onboard audio processing, available with either 4 or 8 ports of inputs. Two-channel audio is automatically extracted and down mixed off of most popular surround modes and distributed over the network to be picked up by any IP Audio device throughout the home.
More Affordable Single-Video Inputs and Outputs
Savant has unveiled new single input and output boxes for the IP Video line, which represent a lower cost solution to accommodate single-source video inputs and outputs for one TV.
New Network Switch Options
For performance and connectivity options for the IP Video system, Savant is now offering an array of new network switches, including a 96-port 10Gb Netgear switch. A new modular chassis allows for a mix of fiber and copper as well as 1Gb, 10Gb and 40Gb ports for potential future scalability. This solution can support up to 95 video inputs or outputs. In addition, larger 12 and 24 port AVB switches from Extreme Networks are now available to Savant integrators via the Savant Store, allowing for large scale IP Audio distribution.
Balanced Audio Outputs
For audio connections over extended distances, a new IP Audio box is available with 16-channels (8 zones) of balanced outputs, which maintain quality even in remote zones despite longer cable runs. The Balanced IP Audio device receives audio signal over the AVB network from any Savant IP Audio enabled device, such as the new IP Audio Music Server or the IP Video Input Transmitter with Audio Processing.
Savant’s new IP Video and Audio features and products are available now.
