Using an economical Gigabit LAN, VERSA-4K senders and receivers come together to create a dynamic virtual matrix capable of delivering HDMI video up to 4K anywhere across the network without the distance restrictions of normal signal management. Break free from limitations and extend to virtually any distance and scale the number of connected sources based on business needs without worry. These benefits have made the VERSA-4K popular in large projects that require a cost-effective and flexible AV solution.
Bidirectional IR, RS-232, and auxiliary stereo audio can also be extended. Advanced features include low latency video and audio, CEC and Serial over IP for control, video wall processor to expand and split 4K video onto multiple screens, video rotation and flipping (horizontal and vertical), USB Device class filtering for excluding specific USB device types such as USB flash drives, automatic KVM switching, Telnet and webGUI control, Dynamic Virtual Matrix™ (DVM) operation, PoE (power over Ethernet) support, and more.
In a 1-to-1 setup (one Sender to one Receiver) no external network equipment is needed, just connect a Cat6 cable up to 120 meters (400 ft) between the two ends. In a many-to-many setup, a dedicated gigabit network switch (with IGMP and Jumbo-frame support) is required. Each VERSA-4K includes a power supply adapter, however, if the network switch provides PoE, the connection of the power adapter is not required. Users can route the video from up to 64 senders to virtually unlimited receivers.
The Sender can accept any HDMI resolution including 4K, 60 Hz 4:4:4 with HDCP 2.2 and it includes an HDMI video loop output together with extracted HDMI audio in analog format for maximum flexibility. The Receiver also includes extracted HDMI audio output and provides a scaled video output with a maximum resolution of 4K, 30 Hz 4:4:4. There are 4 USB ports available on the Receiver, two dedicated for use with keyboard and mouse (auto-switching based on user activity) and two general-purpose USB 2.0 ports that support touch screens, memory devices, audio capture, and many other USB device functions.
Both the Sender and Receiver provide a two-line front panel character-LCD that can be used to easily configure parameters such as IP settings, video multicast channel selection, assignment of device names, and more. Receivers also include an IR remote control that can be used to easily switch the video among Senders.
Using our Free PC GUI, local setup and configuration is easy. Need a more robust control platform? The VERSA’s can be remotely controlled with our newest HIVE Control cloud platform.
