Vanco International’s EVOSKILLZ from its Evolution brand of pro audio and video distribution products can automatically embed audio from a secondary source onto an HDMI cable, sense and switch audio, and maintain uninterrupted 4K video.
EVOSKILLZ has both residential and commercial applications as it allows integrators to add voice control and streaming to any display, amplifier, or soundbar in the home, or provide audio messages and announcements over existing HDMI distributed systems in retail or office environments.
Other benefits of EVOSKILLZ include the ability to pass 4K @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma, PCM, Dolby and DTS audio, and compatibility with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. EVOSKILLZ micro-USB port can be used to power the unit or to provide any future firmware updates. The unit features two dials that allow for the manual adjustment of source sensitivity (dB level from secondary audio source) and audio time out if needed.
EVOSKILLZ can be seen at the Vanco International booth (#643) at CEDIA Expo 2019.
