What’s Trending at Lightware in 2017?

This year Lightware engineers continue to create products based on the feedback received from the real players in the AV world, system designers, consultants and integrators.

Our customers choose our devices for the proprietary Lightware technologies inside, for their reliability and for one of the best support services in the industry.

Hearing the voice of Rental & Staging teams, Lightware releases two products with features developed especially for them, the MX2-8x8- HDMI20-Audio Full 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 matrix and the HDMI20-OPTC-TX_RX220-PRO optical extenders, even though the application possibilities of these devices are not exclusive to this segment.
Another product designed and released by popular demand is the UMX-HDMI- 140 switcher optimized for huddle rooms and smaller meeting rooms. This device is an ideal choice to serve the most widespread video connector types and provides basic control services as well.

Full 4K 8x8 Matrix Switcher

This year we continue to showcase our MX2-8x8-HDMI20-Audio matrix switcher, which we already had on display last year. Though a whole year passed by since then, there are still only a few matrix switchers on the market providing HDMI 2.0 compatibility: our 8x8 matrix can keep that promise for real and handle Full 4K signals at 60 Hz and RGB 4:4:4 color space. 


UMX Series Multiport Switcher with Event Manager

Collaboration spaces come in all sizes at Lightware from the smallest huddle room to the largest video conferencing hall. Having this in mind we prepared our exhibition booth at ISE 2017 with a complete section devoted to collaboration spaces.

Huddle rooms can surely benefit from the features provided by our latest switcher, the UMX-HDMI-140. This device accepts practically any possible input connector and signal as it has VGA, HDMI, DVI and DP input port connectors forwarding the signals to the HDMI output. It offers convenient further ports for audio embedding, including the good old 3.5 jack connector for your audio input. Control options include IR, RS232 and Ethernet.


Multimode Single Fiber Optical Extenders - Rental Edition

We are also going to present our latest development, a fully HDMI 2.0 compatible optical extender pair, designed with rental and stage applications in mind, the HDMI20-OPTC-RX-Pro / HDMI20-OPTC-TX220-Pro. These devices are also capable of splitting the HDMI 2.0 signal to conform compatible projectors with two HDMI input ports able to rebuild the Full 4K video from two halves. These extenders also feature top and side mounting threads to conform the most strict installation safety and security standards.
