Lightware to show full AV-over-IP range at ISE 2022

Lightware Visual Engineering will be highlighting its full line of AV-over-IP, networking and collaboration technologies at ISE 2022.

The UBEX 10G AV-over-IP system now includes a double-scaling feature that halves the number of endpoints needed for videowalls and allows the UBEX system to function as a single device for this purpose. This capability, combined with its transceiver (TRX = simultaneously receive and transmit signals) capabilities and zero latency make it suitable for live events, eSport arenas and more.

The 1G VINX device family, the “little brother” to UBEX, is also growing with the addition of a new wallplate that makes installation more convenient. Lightware is also adding a password-protected login function to VINX devices, requiring end-users and integrators to use a password to configure their devices for added protection against unauthorised access.

Lightware is unveiling firmware version 1.4 for its Taurus UCX switchers. Lightware’s Taurus UCX is an in-room UC media management node enabling the connection of up to four devices (PC, Mac, video room system, etc.), using two USB-C ports and two mixed (USB/HDMI) ports. Users can simply connect their device using a single USB-C cable combining video, audio, control and Ethernet signals, and then begin sharing or presenting content.

With version 1.4, the Taurus UCX devices can send basic Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) commands directly through their HDMI outputs, switch devices on/off, control volume or switch between input ports. This eliminates the need to use serial ports to control end-point devices, giving users and integrators easier control and streamlining system installation and configuration. 

Other upgraded features include dual 60W charging via USB-C. The two USB-C ports on the Taurus UCX devices can still transfer data and video/audio signals, and now can also provide charging. Each port will be able to provide 60W, compared to the previous 1x60W or 2x30W possibilities, allowing connected devices to charge faster and providing a more suitable option for certain laptops that require normal charging to ensure full functionality.

Lightware is also adding bulk management capabilities to the Taurus line, allowing users to perform network settings and configurations on multiple devices simultaneously and saving configuration time, especially for larger systems with a high number of standardised meeting rooms.

As a natural progression from Lightware’s HDMI-TPS lineup, the new TPX extenders will also debut during ISE 2022. These extenders use AVX technology combined with HDMI 2.0 capabilities.

The newest addition to the MMX2 product family will make its debut at ISE. The MMX2-4x3-H20 matrix switcher offers the same reliability and features from the MMX and the MX2 device ranges, including seamless 4K60 transmissions and HDCP 2.2 compliance.

Lightware’s MX2M modular matrix switcher also adds flexibility to AV systems. Following the launch of the 24x24 cross-point size device last year, a new 48x48-sized matrix is coming and will also feature TPX connectivity along with a selection of hot-swappable boards.
