Barco Silex, leading provider of video compression technology and OEM solutions in the Pro A/V market, will demonstrate its latest Viper solution to transport HDMI signals over IP network at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam. The Viper solution consists of encoder and decoder boards that are interconnected by standard Ethernet equipment in order to build a distributed Audio/Video network.
The Viper OEM solution targets integrators and equipment manufacturers willing to develop their own HDMI over IP products with reduced investment and time-to-market. The Viper networking and transport protocols are fully based on open standards, including the VC-2 HQ codec used to compress the video stream. It brings additional flexibility, for example, to capture or replay the stream with a software installation running on a server.
The Viper boards transport HDMI signals up to 4K/UHD resolution with embedded audio over a single 1Gb Ethernet cable. The latency is extremely low and totally imperceptible. The networking capabilities of Viper are very complete with the support of unicast/multicast AV streaming, encryption, forward-error-correction, and remote configuration and upgrade. Additional analog/digital audio interfaces are also supported.
As a provider of OEM solutions, Barco Silex customizes the Viper products to meet the specific requirements of each customer. For example, connectivity, form factor, firmware and software features can be adapted to the needs of the customer.
The Viper solution will be presented at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam, the largest AV systems integration show in the world. The demo will be shown on the Barco booth (12-F100). The demonstration will show real-time ultra-low latency 4K video transport over a standard 1 Gb network.
