Anyone who’s been paying attention to the AV integration world knows just about every AV product these days needs to find its way onto the IT network—and that’s only going to become more prominent as we move forward.
So, the Vaddio AV Bridge Mini represent an important development in the evolution of the industry. That’s why it was chosen as the winner of a 2019 CI Best Electronics Systems Technologies [BEST] Award in the IP-enabling devices category.
“Ideal for lecture capture, conference rooms and video conferencing applications, the AV Bridge Mini encodes, captures and streams content from a convenient half-rack unit size,” according to Vaddio’s product information.
“With the AV Bridge Mini HD Audio/Video Encoder, you can bridge any high definition HDMI and audio source into soft conferencing applications such as Skype for Business, Zoom and WebEx through its powerful USB 3.0 interface,” the company says.
“Creating production-quality live streams on platforms like YouTube Live, UStream, LiveStream and Panopto has never been easier with the AV Bridge Mini’s flexible RTMP capabilities,” according to Vaddio.
