RTI debuts 4K video over IP platform

RTI has announced a Video over IP (VIP) platform that allows integrators to distribute 4K UHD video over a 1GB network switch.

This flexible system can be installed in minutes, scaled to a virtually unlimited number of endpoints, and controlled natively within the RTI control environment.

For the user, everything in the system is displayed on an RTI touchpanel, remote, or mobile device with video preview, making it easy to align any source with any display. 

At the heart of the RTI Video over IP platform is the VIP-UHD-CTRL Control Module, which combines APEX integration with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP control, and a wizard-based interface for automated system configuration. Signal management provides independent routing of IR, RS-232, USB/KVM, audio, and video signals, while two RJ45 LAN connections bridge the main and VIP networks to increase performance and eliminate the need for a VLAN. Multiple displays can be combined into videowalls, up to 16x16, using the videowall function.

With a 60Hz refresh rate and support for 4K resolution, the platform's VIP-UHD-TX transmitter and VIP-UHD-RX receiver provides video using visually lossless compression technology to deliver signals up to 328 feet/100 metres. HDCP 2.2 compliance with advanced EDID management eliminates copy-protected black screens when connecting HDMI sources, while built-in scaling lets each screen in a network display its full resolution instead of being limited by the lower resolution of legacy displays. The transmitter and receiver feature analog audio embedding and breakout, and support all known HDMI audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio transmission.

To minimise cable clutter, the VIP-UHD-CTRL, VIP-UHD-TX, and VIP-UHD-RX can be powered by power over Ethernet (PoE), while up to four transmitters or receivers can be mounted using the 2RU RM-4VIP2 rack-mount adaptor shelf, which includes all necessary mounting hardware.
