Crestron Electronics will demonstrate support for 8K video content distribution with a software-based solution as the latest advancement of the Crestron DM NVX AV-over-IP platform at InfoComm 2022. The demonstration will showcase the ability to simultaneously encode four 4K streams, enabling the distribution of native 8K content.
The new DM NVX encoding software features an innovative approach to AV-over-IP content distribution with multi-stream GPU-based encoding that delivers a visually stunning image composed together with multiple streams on a video wall or large format display.
“There are strong indicators that 8K video displays will first appear in retail settings and then quickly emerge in other markets such as government and enterprise,” says Andrew Ludke, senior director of product management AV solutions at Crestron. “These use cases require a proven AV-over-IP platform like DM NVX that can equip these environments with the best quality content. As companies work to make the office a more appealing place for hybrid workers, these video walls will play an important role in crafting an engaging content in spaces large auditoriums and training rooms that can replicate the successful experiences created across retail, government, and live event environments.”
There’s something of a “demand loop” created by increased resolutions: An image with more pixels brings a sharper, clearer image to larger screens — which, in turn, helps drive demand for bigger displays. Instead of chaining smaller displays together for large installations like video walls, one screen will be able to provide the sharp image quality that’s needed for these effects. This translates to more easily discernable details and allows video walls and signage to handle multiple duties in the modern environment.
Crestron’s DM NVX encoding software will be on display at InfoComm 2022 in Las Vegas at the Crestron booth, #W603 in the West Hall.
