PlexusAV, a division of Sencore, is unveiling the AVN Series, including an IPMX Transceiver (P-AVN4), Plexus Visual Array Appliance (P-AVN-VSA) and Plexus Gateway (P-AVN-GTW).

The series is based on SMPTE ST 2110, and is designed to enable the transport of compressed and uncompressed video, audio, and data over IP networks.

PlexusAV's P-AVN4 is an IPMX transceiver that can be configured to operate as an encoder or decoder. It features 1 Gigabit transport and harnesses IPMX to provide JPEG XS, JPEG XS FIP, H.264 and HEVC codec options.

The P-AVN4 includes three 1 Gigabit network ports, HDMI inputs and outputs with HDCP support, USB-C video inputs, analogue audio I/O and IR/RS232 support, said the company.

The P-AVN-VSA is a central management and control solution that features flexible two-level device grouping and filterable tagging functionality. It includes a simplified API to enable integration with third-party systems.

The P-AVN-GTW is a gateway device that can connect to remote locations with support for SRT and RIST. It includes H.264/265 protocol conversion for streamlined delivery to content delivery networks and cloud-based services.

Steven Cogels, global director of business development for PlexusAV said: "PlexusAV has gathered deep knowledge from decades of success in the broadcast industry through Sencore, our parent company, to create an interoperable solution that leverages an industry standard, IMPX."
