Aurora Debuts IPX Series, Takes the 4K Challenge

The newly announced IPX Series from Aurora, debuting at ISE, incorporates the company’s IPBaseT technology to distribute 4K video over a 10G fiber-based network.

The swift evolution of A/V technologies have put a tremendous burden on the electronics community to keep pace with reliable and repeatable solutions that dealers can successfully implement in the field.

A good example of how electronics manufacturers are keeping pace is the latest product line from the Morganville, N.J.-based company Aurora Multimedia.

Aurora’s new IPX Series of products features the company’s IPX-TC1 4K2K transceiver that it says provides dealers with a zero compression, zero latency device that can be set up as a transmitter (encoder) and receiver (decoder).

The transceiver incorporates two HDMI inputs, an HDMI output, a fiber SFP+ port that allows for single or multimode use, and a RJ45 1G LAN port with PoE.

The company points out the product line incorporates IPBaseT technology that is said to “synergize” various IP/AV standards to work together. Together Aurora explains, the devices combine uncompressed 4K video, digital audio, USB 2.0 and control and it distributes this content over a 10G fiber-based network.

In addition, dealers can configure the device as a distributed matrix switcher with 128 x 128 HDCP capabilities, as well as RS-232, IR and Ethernet control options.

Moreover, Aurora adds, the line is also backed with Dante network options, and its IPX-TXW3 three-gang transmitter (encoder) that includes HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, modular SFP+ Port, RJ45 1G LAN, USB 2.0 and signal detect with auto switching options.

Aurora will be debuting the new IPX Series at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2015.
