Our AV-Over-IP system for Gigabit Ethernet networks, the VINX series devices are popular products, which can also run in point-to-point configuration and have diverse application possibilities, especially recommended for applications where scalability, flexibility and rapid deployment are in focus. They are simple to install and to operate, and have numerous built-in services most other manufacturers only provide for an extra cost.

The open API of the VINX devices allow easy integration with third party systems.

Crosspoint View

Available in both the free Lightware Device Controller (LDC) management software and the built-in web.

Video Wall Wizard

The signal can also be switched to a video wall output from several VINX units and acting as a single display.

Easy Pairing

For pairing the units there are physical DIP switches on front, so matching them in a network could not be easier.

Unlimited endpoints

VINX can be expanded from a simple point-to-point application to unlimited endpoints for the ultimate in virtual matrix switching, digital signage and signal extension.

Built-in USB 2.0 ports

The built-in USB 2.0 ports support K+M function and can also handle USB mass storage.

Advanced EDID Management

The extenders include our Advanced EDID Management system and decoders are capable of scaling the video signal up to 4K UHD @ 30 Hz. RS-232 and IR control channels are supported.

HDCP compliant

The units are HDCP compliant and their streaming maximum bit rate is variable between 10 Mbps and 800 Mbps.The feature options include gap and bezel adjustment and cropping which can be performed in batch.

VINX has an option for password-protected login.

End-users and integrators are required to use a password to configure their devices, which provides protection against unauthorized access.

Smart Bandwidth Management

Variable Bitrate, Video and Graphic Modes

The built-in, selectable Video and Graphic Modes optimize streaming and compression to match the transferred media.

The Variable Bitrate feature provides an even more accurate adjustment option for smart bandwidth management.

Ultimate Versatility in Audio Signal Management

The new VINX-120AP-HDMI-ENC-DNT features independent AES67 support. This unique, future-proof solution allows operators to easily adopt to any scenario where audio signal management is in focus, besides of video capabilities, regardless of the actual intercompatibility between these two standards.

The separate RJ-45 port in the new VINX device carries two-fold advantage. First, it allows immediate audio signal de-embedding from the HDMI source that can be then directly sent to an external, Dante/AES67 capable audio system.

This offers a huge benefit for operators, especially in the growing number of live event and corporate environments that already utilize the features of these two standards. Second, the additional RJ-45 interface has its own MAC address separate from the video port, therefore eliminate relevant, IT security related concerns.

Fast Switching

One of the key improvements achieved in the VINX product line is a remarkable boost in the devices’ switching times. Compared to the previously experienced switching intervals, with enabled scaling of non-HDCP video, from the firmware update of v3.2.x allows to switch signals about a second, thus significantly improving user experience.

Unchanged Versatility

These features include silent, fan-less cooling for noise-free operation, Video Wall processing, Smart Bandwidth Management as well as crosspoint view that allows easy configuration either by using the Lightware Device Controller (LDC) software or via the built-in website for remote IP control whilst the device can also be powered remotely via any PoE standards.

Remote Powering

When connected to a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capable switch, there is no need for installing and connecting a local power supply to power the WP-VINX-110P-HDMI-ENC. Hence valuable space can be conserved which is a major advantage in wallplate applications.
