Key Digital says its KD-IP922 supports up to eight vertical and eight horizontal displays for a maximum of a 64-panel video wall.

In its press release, the manufacturer contends that a common obstacle with HD over IP from all manufacturers is lip sync issues caused by network lag. KD-IP922 encoders feature an analog audio de-embed port with an adjustable audio delay up to 150 ms. The analog audio breakout is on a balanced / unbalanced phoenix terminal, and also features volume, muting, and three-band EQ DSP functions.
