Savant has unveiled a “ultra-high-performance pixel-perfect” 4K video over IP switching platform at ISE 2017. It says the technology will give Savant integrators “a distinct advantage delivering premium distributed AV content to their residential and commercial clients.”

The new product line delivers 4K/60 4:4:4 HDR video distribution over IP with zero frame latency. A centralised 10GbE switch, enables Ethernet connectivity throughout the project, with fiber and copper options. Advanced video processing features supported include multi-video/video tiling, video wall and multi-switching applications.

The company says scalability is only limited by the size of the network, allowing installations from 2 – 128 zones, or more.

Audio down-mixing capabilities and breakout options allow the platform to be matched with the brand’s Pro Audio 4 IP-based switch, offering unlimited audio zone support and access to popular streaming services via Savant Music.

“In prior ventures with Excel Switching, we led the telecom industry’s evolution to IP-based switching systems, today Savant is leading a similar evolution in video switching.” says Savant CEO Robert Madonna. “These new best-in-class 4K switching solutions deliver the same advantages to the AV integration professional within a complete suite of products that give them a competitive advantage in the luxury home and commercial markets.”

The Savant 4K Ultra HD video over IP switching solution will begin shipping in Q3, 2017.

Distribution is via RGB. For more news stories about the RGB product portfolio and services, visit our partner page here.
