Lightware continues to deliver USB and USB-C signal management solutions, and will showcase its latest developments for the corporate, education and live event sectors during this year’s InfoComm Show, taking place in Las Vegas in June 12-14.

Throughout the event visitors to the Lightware booth (C8056) can see the AV manufacturer’s newest technologies in action, including the latest editions of the Taurus product family. After inventing USB host switching in 2020 with the Taurus UCX and introducing USB extension three years later with the Taurus TPX, Lightware is upping the ante again with the Taurus TPN, expanding USB capabilities into network environments. Beyond the Taurus TPN, Lightware will also showcase its new Taurus UCX Dual Screen feature along with other connectivity solutions.

Taurus TPN: UC-over-IP

Lightware’s Taurus TPN, UC-over-IP solution, is tailored for medium to large conference rooms, enabling meeting participants to connect their USB-C laptops as hosts and take control of their room’s USB assets. The Taurus UCX-TPN and HDMI-TPN devices, both leveraging SDVoE technology, form the core of the solution, allowing for the creation of adaptable UC-over-IP matrices. The Taurus TPN’s unique seamless management of HDMI 2.0 signals supports up to 4K60 4:4:4 video resolution and its provision of full bandwidth USB 2.0 allows high-quality data transmission across 10G Ethernet networks.

Multiscreen Extended Desktop with Taurus UCX-4×3-HCM40

According to Lightware, the company delivers the first-ever pro AV solution that enables multiscreen extended desktop via a single USB-C cable. The Taurus UCX-4×3-HCM40 – Dual Screen UCX is a dual display screen solution that enhances meeting room connectivity and collaboration.

The UCX-4×3-HCM40’s dual-screen USB-C input is a game-changer for the workspace, supporting 100W charging, a 1GbE USB3 network card compatible with diverse operating systems, and the ability to share external USB3/USB2 devices, says Lightware. Overcoming limitations posed by Apple’s M1/M2/M3 chips, it supports two independent 4K60 displays, showcasing its adaptability to various setups.
