Mfr Part #: VX-HDMI-POE-MRX
This attractively priced IP streaming solution multicasts HDMI video and audio to a nearly unlimited number of screens on a network. You need just one transmitter and one receiver for each screen.
MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast is ideal for distributing digital signage content or other HD video and audio across an Ethernet network. Because the transmitter and receivers install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure, integration is easy. There's no need to run expensive dedicated links from a back room to digital signage in lobbies.
The extender transmits up to 328 feet (100 m) per link, but goes even longer when additional network switches are added to the mix. You can even use fiber with media converters to go several miles if needed. Its signal is completely digital from end to end, so your digital content is never compromised.
