Pakedge Device & Software has released its RSB-K24C preconfigured audio/video bridging system, a router/gateway security unit designed for networked custom-installation home entertainment and multiroom AV systems.
The RSB-K24C preconfigured audio/video bridging system.
"Audio/video bridging, or AVB, is an emerging standard for ensuring the proper transmission of audio, video and control signals over networks—and AVB is creating a need for an entirely new class of connectivity products," said Pakedge president and CEO, Victor Pak. "Our RSB-K24C was created to meet this need with a system that is pre-configured for easy installation at fraction of the cost of other products, and provides enterprise-class reliability."
The RSB-K24C includes the RT-50V Audio/Video Bridging Router, SW24-GBVC Audio/Video Bridging Switch with 24 VLAN ports plus 2 Fiber ports and the RMB-FG Router Rack-Mount Bracket. The RT-50V and SW24-GBVC are preconfigured out of the box to divide the network into four separate VLANs or subnets to manage traffic, broadcast, and priority for all connected devices. All the ports are color-coded for AV components, computer devices and control hardware.
Each device can be prioritized-devices that require 100 percent smooth communication, for example, audio/video streaming and VoIP phones, can be assigned the highest priorities. The RSB-K24C can be stacked with additional Pakedge switches for larger installations.
