Integrators can now offer advanced video processing and management at a fraction of the cost to clients with existing IP networks and H.264 endpoints.
It makes sense that only a brand like ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO), the commercial audio/video market’s most innovative company, could engineer a line of digital video processing and management products that achieves the trifecta of low bandwidth, low latency and unsurpassed image quality using existing IP networks. According toLewis Eig, ClearOne Sales Director, Network Video & Audio Distribution, the company’s recently expanded VIEW Pro line of media encoders and decoders, along with the powerful new PANORAMA™ videowall software license, gives integrators and end users today’s simplest, most install-ready system that delivers top-quality video to any number of displays at any resolution, including uniquely sized LED screens.
“The VIEW Pro line of multimedia streaming hardware offers any business of any size the opportunity to add HD video and multimedia distribution to their existing data infrastructure,” Eig said. “Our advanced decoding and encoding algorithms and hardware eliminate the need for additional data lines and expensive construction, lowering the cost and install time for organizations looking to upgrade the digital media capabilities and quality of their office, retail location or public space.”
With various rack-mount components, as well as the industry’s most compact decoding options, offering H.264 compression, 24-bit color, up-to 1080p resolution at 60 FPS, ultra-low latency, video windowing and advanced content control, the VIEW Pro line is unmatched in scalability and maximizes the potential of any digital display network, whether in a new construction or renovation environment. The mass proliferation of H.264 endpoints (IP cameras, mobile devices, PC streaming, digital signage players, video recorders) means that many businesses and organizations already have compatible components, and by sending the video signal over IP, the VIEW Pro system eliminates the need for additional encoders, decoders and other hardware.
“VIEW Pro is simply the most adaptable, capable video processing and management solution for needs ranging from a single videowall to a large video distribution network,” Eig added. “Our node-based approach means that any display or source can be mapped down to the pixel, allowing users to achieve the full potential of their displays and offer full controls such as cropping, scaling and overlaying in real time, windowing, and even window rotating to display landscape or portrait images and videos. Additionally, our ultra-low latency allows us to work in the most critical environments, including live streaming and keyboard transport for KVM extension applications.”
The VIEW Pro line’s vast usability is thanks in part to its powerful PANORAMA™ and CONSOLE® software that allow operators to manage any display of any shape, size or resolution, which is becoming more important as companies opt for LED displays with dimensions and pixel counts outside the 1080p or 4K standards. These easy-to-use software controls allow companies to easily manage multi-panel videowalls, multi-display distributed video networks, and even turn a single display into a videowall by displaying multiple sources in windows. The power of VIEW Pro in these situations lives in the nodes or endpoints, so as the system grows, its windowing and video wall processing power grows too, making for an extremely cost-effective and scalable system for large and small videowall projects alike.
