Black Box Products at InfoComm 2021
MCX G2 Series Multimedia Distribution and Management System
Black Box, an industry leader in AVoIP and SDVoE products, will launch the MCX G2 series, the next generation of the company’s MCX multimedia distribution and management system. The MCX G2 series features the performance of the original S9 and S7 series but adds several market-leading features including best-in-class source-to-screen latency (less than 18 microseconds), one-port or two-port encoding devices, a video loop-through connection, USB-C and three-port USB 2.0 connectivity, and PoE capability. These features provide for a more flexible solution, faster design/implementation and lower overall cost.
The Black Box MCX takes advantage of SDVoE and modern 10 GbE infrastructure to allow AV and data payloads to exist on the same IT networks. Through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability, SDVoE technology ensures zero latency and uncompromised video while offering significant cost savings along with enhanced system flexibility and scalability.
Rather than deploy an entirely new network, users can take advantage of the software-defined solution to leverage existing infrastructure for delivery of better-quality audio and video, which can translate to greater customer satisfaction and faster time to revenue.
Radian Flex Software-Based Video Wall Processing Platform
Radian Flex is a fully software-based video wall processing platform that delivers future-proof flexibility and scalability for digital signage, corporate, education and mission-critical visualization applications. The intuitive software from Black Box makes it easy to display high-quality content from multiple sources across multiscreen display walls in any imaginable configuration. Users simply add, move, resize and change content on the Radian Flex interface, and those changes are reflected in real time on the target video wall, distributed visualization system or other display devices. Radian Flex supports an unlimited number of inputs, screens and endpoints. Users can easily daisy-chain monitors to display hundreds of H.264 and VNC video streams across multiple screens. Integrated SmartFrame technology ensures perfect picture quality and automates optimal placement of content on the screen with minimal setup. The platform’s robust video engine supports 4K 60fps video up to an industry-leading resolution of more than one billion pixels, paving the way for 8K resolution and beyond.
