Creative designers and integrators are constantly pushing the state of the art in digital signage. Where a single 2x2 display might have grabbed people's attention, now higher resolutions, more endpoints, more interactivity, and more integration and customization are expected. While users want a growing list of capabilities, including increased customization, higher resolutions, more endpoints, real-time transmission, and more interactivity. Users also want solutions to be affordable, simple to set up, and easy to administer. That's where Macnica's ME10 SoC & MPA1000 4K AV over 1GbE Module comes in.
1. Simple Deployment
AVoIP technology is typically easier to deploy than hardwired digital signage and video walls because it uses standard IT hardware, making it possible to run your system through existing networking infrastructure.
IP-based digital signage and video walls work by connecting each display to a receiver, which assigns the screen an IP address and connects it to the network. Content may be delivered fast and effortlessly in either unicast or multicast from anywhere on the network once the display is connected. Scalability is also inexpensive and straightforward. Adding displays is as simple as adding more receivers — up to thousands of endpoints.
2. Real-Time High-Quality Transmission
Built to adhere to the IPMX open standard, which delivers sub-frame latency, encrypted 4K UHD 60P 4:4:4 content, and control from any video product over a standard 1GbE connection.
Real-time transmission of high-quality video and audio makes IP-based video walls ideal for command-and-control centers, security applications, transportation, and live presentations. Real-time feeds provide more immersive interactive experiences and faster reaction times in an emergency. They also allow for more engagement in sectors like education and business. In the retail industry, real-time transmission enables shoppers to try on goods from a store's current inventory digitally.
3. Lower Cost
Networked solutions don't need the expensive wall processors of the past and require less cabling, resulting in cost savings. Because IPMX is designed for Plug and Play interoperability, simply plug into the existing AV network and take advantage of the existing displays at a venue for further savings.
Digital signage provides clear and accessible information that can be deployed across many sectors and environments. Reach customers in retail, students, and staff in learning environments, manage people flow, inform passengers in transport hubs, communicate with employees in office buildings and workers in manufacturing and production. The possibilities for future advancements in digital signage are seemingly endless. Its only limitations are imagination and ingenuity.
