Vaddio recently announced its AV Bridge MATRIX PRO—a full AV room solution for USB/IP-based applications which adds audio and video mixing functionality of multiple AV sources directly to your PC for any UC application—is now shipping.
The AV Bridge MATRIX PRO is “designed for simplified AV from cabling to control in applications such as a distance education classroom, house of worship, large meeting venues—anywhere where multiple cameras and audio sources are needed,” according to Vaddio’s announcement.
“We’ve been listening to the end-user and dealer requests for a product which includes the benefits of our most popular and powerful integration tools,” says Vaddio president and CEO Ed Ellett. “The AV Bridge MATRIX pro is a culmination of those efforts. The extensive feature-set of the AV Bridge MATRIX PRO allows it to adapt anywhere from an educational facility to a corporate conference room across the enterprise.”
Here’s more from Vaddio’s announcement:
The technology offered in the AV Bridge MATRIX PRO bridges the gap between PC applications and AV equipment. The new technology facilitates the use of multiple cameras, microphones and displays and allows for sound and video mixing. Users retain all the capabilities of traditional conference rooms with the added capability of cloud connection and content distribution. Used in conjunction with any of Vaddio’s RoboSHOT, PowerVIEW or POV series cameras and EasyUSB microphones, you now have a powerful and affordable, AV/UC solution for any room.
Control for the AV Bridge MATRIX PRO is provided via the embedded web server with a simple user interface. Simply connect the AV Bridge MATRIX PRO to the network and the user has access to video and audio configuration, matrix mixing and routing, streaming (USB and IP simultaneously), room labels, networking, security, diagnostics, image controls and more.
The AV Bridge MATRIX PRO features the following: an AV encoder with simultaneous IP and USB 2.0 streaming, a four input seamless HD video switcher, three built-in Quick-Connect interfaces for Vaddio cameras, an 8×4 cross-point audio matrix mixer/switcher with acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), four audio ports for Vaddio EasyUSB microphones with built-in AEC and a web server for configuration programming, control and remote management.
