Just Add Power (J+P) will display the latest additions to its family of 2GΩ/3G devices, the 2GΩ/3G+ Power over Ethernet (PoE) VBS-HDMI-715POE transmitter and VBS-HDMI-515POE receiver at InfoComm 2017. With these solutions, integrators can build scalable infrastructure to distribute sources up to 1080p resolution or meet evolving 4K requirements by mixing and matching devices with 2GΩ devices on 1080p sources and 3G on 4K sources.
"Integrators are challenged to meet the needs of 1080p resolutions and 4K sources in one install, and they might have customers contemplating an upgrade to 4K in the future," said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at J+P. "We designed the 2GΩ/3G+ devices as an affordable solution that bridges this gap, scaling the devices as needed and as project requirements change. These two new devices expand on the 2GΩ/3G’s versatility, providing a true systems approach to today’s video demands."
The 2GΩ/3G+ PoE models combine the feature set of the 3G system with the maximum 1080p resolution of 2G devices. Both also offer support for 1080p video with HDCP 1.4; all lossless audio formats including Dolby Atmos; control endpoints with RS-232 and IR (using VBS-HDMI-IRD); stereo audio output with 170ms audio delay; CEC control; and image play capabilities. The receiver features integrated scaling, video wall rotation options, and USB 2.0 over IP. The transmitter offers HDMI pass-through and USB 2.0 functionality.
As with all models in the J+P lineup, the 2GΩ/3G+ PoE solutions integrate with both 2G and 3G, allowing integrators to build a somewhat future-proof infrastructure that suits most application requirements.
