Description

The FHD264 is a family of HDMI over LAN Senders (encoders) and Receivers (decoders) utilizing advanced video encoding techniques in order to distribute up to 64 Full-HD video signals to hundreds of displays on a simple 1 Gigabit local area network(LAN). They also extend Serial RS-232 communications and IR remote signals. HDMI Audio is extracted and available on a convenient 3.5mm stereo jack on both the Sender and the Receiver. The FHD264-S Sender also provides local HDMI output.

Each device provides a two-line front panel LCD that can be used to easily configure or monitor parameters such as IP settings, multicast group selection, assignment of device names, and more. This eliminates the usual installation challenges of finding and configuring devices on the network for the first time. With the front panel LCD, users can see and assign configuration parameters with ease.

Rack Adapter for FHD264

The RS-232 serial ports on each unit can be used in SoIP mode (Serial over IP). This allows 3rd party IP controllers to directly control peripheral equipment via RS-232. For example if the RS-232 of a receiver is connected to a video projector, you can turn the projector on or off via telnet commands sent to the FHD264 Receiver.

All devices support IEEE 802.3af PoE (Power over Ethernet). So when connected to a network switch with PoE, no power supply needs to be connected to the FHD264 devices. A power supply is included for customers that may not have PoE on their network.

Rack mount hardware is also available for housing up to 12 senders in 4U rack space.

NOTES:

FHD264-R Receivers also offer fail-Safe automatic video routing and redundancy. So if the receiver is not detecting any video on its currently assigned channel, it will switch to a user defined alternate channel. It can also automatically switch back to the original multicast channel if video is detected again.

FHD264 applications include digital signage, meeting rooms, classrooms, bus & metro stations, airports, home theater, and more.

The FHD264-R Receivers can decode the video from any Sender on the LAN. It is easy to switch the Receiver between Senders. This can be done in several ways:

  • Using the front panel LCD and push buttons
  • Using the supplied IR Remote Control
  • Browsing to the WebGUI in each unit
  • Telnet Commands (ideal for third-party control of switching)
  • Windows PC application: DVM Manager Tool™ (free). Click for Instructional Video.
  • CNT-IP-264 (Global Video-over-IP Controller - sold separately)

Receivers include an IR remote controller for switching among Sender channels (multicast groups). In installations such as sports bars, users can easily switch the monitor to another source using this IR remote. In addition since the FHD264 extends IR signals, users can control sources such as video players using the player's IR remote. In other words, from the Receiver location (at the TV) you use the included IR remote to switch the video to desired Sender, then you can use the IR remote of whatever is connected to the sender.
