Application 1
Business Office: Replace a video matrix switcher with an AV over IP system
THE SCENARIO

An insurance office wants to replace an older video Matrix Switcher responsible for playing four Sources to six TV displays. The Switcher is having intermittent issues and the displays are losing picture periodically. The company is interested in the latest AV technology for the purpose of simplifying maintenance and future expansion.

The office has a centralized Audio/Video Room where the AV equipment is located. The Sources they want to distribute include two computers, one Streaming device, and one Cable Box. A total of four Sources.

 

THE SOLUTION

Ensure all display locations have a Cat5e or Cat6 cable running to the AV equipment location. The AV or IT team will be required to install a 16-port PoE Network Switch certified for AVoIP compatibility for video distribution.

The BG-VOP-CB gateway controller is connected to the network switch. The controller is responsible for auto-discovery and management of the BG-VOP-MT transceivers. The transceivers are assigned as transmitters or receivers using a switch on the side of each unit. Receivers are placed with the displays and the transmitters installed with the video sources. Each transceiver is connected to the network switch.

When configuration is complete the system can be operated via the web interface or with the easy-to-use iOS app. Any source can be quickly routed to any display. By utilizing the KVM extension capabilities, the computers can be controlled with a keyboard and mouse installed at any of the displays. The bi-directional IR passthrough allows for control of the cable box and streaming device from any of the display locations. The combination of the free control app and IR passthrough allow the entire system to be easily operated without the added cost and complexity of a dedicated control system.

Sports Bar: Create a video wall using AV over IP
THE SCENARIO

A popular sports bar is seeking a modern 4K solution to replace an older projector and screen. The owner wants the ability to watch a single sporting event on the large screen, but also the flexibility to show four games individually. Easy control with an iPad is a priority, and the equipment should be placed out of sight in another area.

 

 

THE SOLUTION

Mount the displays in the desired video wall layout, ensuring each display has a dedicated Cat6 line running to the AV equipment location. The AV or IT team will be required to install a 16-port PoE Network Switch certified for AVoIP compatibility for video distribution.

Application 3
Real Estate Office: Create an attention-grabbing video wall in the lobby
THE SCENARIO

A busy, well-known real estate company wants to dazzle clients by showing off homes for sale on an impressive video display screen as they walk into the lobby. The company wants to use nine 65-inch video wall displays mounted in a 3x3 layout creating a 8 ft x 14 ft video wall viewing area.

In addition to the video wall, they want to share the video sources to five other offices and one presentation room. In the presentation room the employees need to control a computer server that has a proprietary software program installed. The presenters will be using a keyboard and mouse in the presentation room to operate the computer server.

 

THE SOLUTION

Each display must have a Cat6 cable running directly to the AV equipment location. The AV or IT team will need to install a 1 Gigabit, 16-port PoE network switch certified for AVoIP compatibility.

The BG-VOP-CB controller connects directly to the network switch. The controller is responsible for auto-discovery and management of the BG-VOP-MT transceivers. The transceivers are assigned as transmitters or receivers using a switch on the side of each unit. Receivers are placed with the displays and the transmitters installed with the video sources. Each transceiver is connected to the network switch. USB peripherals should be connected to the receivers, and the host (computer) should be connected to the transmitter with a USB cable.

When configuration is complete the system can be operated via the web interface or with the easy-to-use iOS app. Any source can be quickly routed to any display or to the video wall. By utilizing the KVM extension capabilities, the computer can be controlled with a keyboard and mouse installed at any of the displays. The bi-directional IR passthrough allows for control of the cable box and streaming device from any of the display locations. The combination of the free control app and IR passthrough allow the entire system to be easily operated without the added cost and complexity of a dedicated control system.

Corporate Offices: Distributing AV between Buildings
THE SCENARIO

A company has three buildings located in San Francisco. Two of these buildings (A and B) are connected with fiber optic cabling and buildings B and C are linked with a point-to-point wireless bridge. The company wants to connect computers and displays in all three buildings for sending audio, video, and control signals. Any source should be selectable from any display, and remote control of the computers is required.

 

THE SOLUTION

AV over IP will connect the three buildings, allowing any of the computers to be displayed and controlled from any other building. The AV team will install three 1-Gigabit PoE network switches certified for AVoIP in each building. The network will make use of VLANs to properly manage network traffic.

The BG-VOP-CB controller connects directly to the network switch in building B. The controller is responsible for auto-discovery and management of the BG-VOP-MT transceivers. The transceivers are assigned as transmitters or receivers using a switch on the side of each unit. Receivers are placed with the displays and the transmitters are installed with the computers. Each transceiver is connected to its local network switch. USB peripherals should be connected to the receivers, and the host (computer) should be connected to the transmitter with a USB cable.

When configuration is complete the system can be operated via the web interface or the easy-to-use iOS app. Any source can be routed to any display. By utilizing the KVM extension capabilities, the computers can be controlled with a keyboard and mouse installed at any of the displays. The free control app allows the entire system to be easily operated without the added cost and complexity of a dedicated control system.
