Video and Audio-Over-IP solution Creates New Opportunities for Integrators to Deliver Home Entertainment to Their Clients

Savant has begun shipping its new IP Video products, an ultra-high-performance pixel-perfect 4K video over IP switching platform that will deliver 4K/60 4:4:4 HDR video distribution over IP with zero frame latency, leveraging Savant’s history in telecom.

The platform provides the convenience of a centralized 10GbE switch, enabling high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity throughout the project. The video and audio distribution capability of this new switch cost effectively meets the demand for the highest quality experience across any job size, with scalability only limited by the size of the network, allowing installations of from 2 - 128 zones or more.

New products in the lineup include the Savant IP Video 4 and 8 input video transmitters as well as Savant IP Video output receivers available with either fiber or copper as an option.

Savant’s IP Audio lineup is expanding to include the Savant IP Audio 50 (a renamed version of Savant’s Pro Audio 4), the company’s first scalable, wired, all-in-one music solution. Brand new to the lineup is the Savant IP Audio 125, a higher wattage amplifier/audio distribution system. The IP Audio 125 delivers all the functionality of the IP Audio 50, but with 125 watts per channel for dynamic audio reproduction; ample power to drive clear sound into large spaces such as outdoor entertainment. The IP Audio 125 also includes additional control ports for more installation flexibility. Savant IP Audio products include built-in streaming, distribution, and amplification.

For the ultimate in system configuration flexibility, the Savant IP Audio lineup features an array of preamp-level audio inputs and outputs. The new Savant IP Audio 8 output and IP Audio 7 input modules allow audio to be distributed to and from remote areas of a property without the need for home run audio cables. Simply plug either module into the IP network to add audio to any room. Up to 16 Savant IP Audio units can be interconnected using the AVB 802.1 IEEE standard, expanding the range to as many as 96 listening zones for a synchronized, whole-home audio experience. Additionally, the unmatched installation flexibility of Savant’s IP Audio platform make it ideally suited for either new construction or retrofit applications.
