Biamp adds video distribution to Tesira

Biamp TesiraLux

Biamp has brought low-latency, 4K networked video distribution into the Tesira platform with TesiraLUX.

The AVB encoder (TesiraLUX IDH-1) and decoder (TesiraLUX OH-1) pair transports AV signals over a single network. The encoder features one HDMI port, one DisplayPort port, and two mic/line-level analogue inputs. The decoder includes one HDMI port and two line-level analogue outputs. 

TesiraLUX supports 4096x2160 at 60-Hz, high dynamic range (HDR) and the Rec. 2020 colour space. It can accept video at up to 16-bit colour depth with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling, as well as eight channels of embedded PCM audio, which can be broken out to be routed and processed independently. The system also manages EDID automatically between the TesiraLUX device and the input source/output display thanks to scalers in both the encoder and decoder. AVB/TSN allows TesiraLUX to provide a total system latency of less than two frames (33 ms at 60 Hz), including scaling, compression, and network transit. 

Multiple software-based options are available for managing bandwidth, including setting maximum resolution, frame rate, and rate of compression. With both a 1-Gb (RJ-45) and a 10-Gb (SFP+) media port available, designers have a range of transmission options from which to choose.

TesiraLUX’s video partitions behave like Tesira’s audio partitions so designers have a modular and intuitive approach to system design and commissioning, resulting in significant time and cost savings for integrators. In addition, Tesira coordinates signal distribution so there’s no need to manually add audio delays for lip sync.

TesiraLUX will be available January 2017.
