DN-200 Series Overview

The DN-200 Series is a dramatic extension of the DisplayNet AV-over-IP product line. It leverages the latest SDVoE technology to distribute uncompressed AV signals with resolutions up to 4K /60p over a 10GbE Ethernet network. The DN-200 Series adds support for HDMI 2.0 with up to 12-bit color, HDCP 2.2, DisplayPort 1.2, and High Speed USB 2.0. A high-performance scaler in both the Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) units enables very Fast Switching, MultiViewer, and enhanced Video Wall processing.

Each Tx unit accepts multiple source signals including HDMI (with embedded audio and HDCP), DisplayPort, analog stereo audio, bidirectional IR, RS-232, and 1GbE Ethernet. These input signals are packetized into a single 10GbE link and are distributed to destinations via an off-the-shelf 10GbE network switch. The DN-200 Series supports twisted pair (CAT6a or CAT7) media up to 328 ft. (100 meters), or Fiber Optic media using an industry standard SFP+ module supporting extension distances up to 18 miles (30 km). The 10GbE switch provides a highly efficient and reliable means of distributing AV signals from many sources to an array of Rx units, which convert the packetized 10GbE data to AV output signals at the destination in real time without introducing frame latency or any loss of image quality.

The DN-200 Series distributes video with resolutions up to 4K /60p with 8-bit color (4:4:4) and 4K /60p with 10-bit or 12-bit color (4:2:2 or 4:2:0) without image artifacts and without frame latency. When the video signal exceeds the bandwidth limits of 10GbE, very light compression (maximum ratio of about 1.4:1) is used. Video signals may be routed in Point-to-Point, Matrix Switching, Video Wall, and MultiViewer modes all in the same system. For optimum flexibility, each signal layer (Video, Embedded Audio, Downmixed Audio, Analog Audio, IR, RS-232, and 1GbE) can each be routed completely independently from one another. Advanced audio features are supported, including: networked audio, audio embedding, de-embedding and down-mixing.

DN-200 Series transmitter and receiver units are controlled by a DisplayNet Server™ (DNS-200), which includes powerful DisplayNet Manager™ web browser-based software that enables the system to be managed using any third-party controller using simple Telnet commands.

Note 1: The 10GbE port is designed to connect to compatible DVIGear products and 10GbE network switches only. Do not connect any device to the 10GbE port of this product unless you are sure it is compatible.

Note 2: Connectivity varies by model. USB connectivity is only available on the DN-210U and DN-220U. Copper 10GbE link is only available on DN-210 and DN-210U. Optical 10GbE link is only available on DN-220 and DN-220U.

Note 3: Video signals will be transported uncompressed unless the bandwidth exceeds the limits of 10GbE. For video signals that exceed 10Gbps. of raw data, light compression is employed. For the maximum resolutions shown above, the DN-200 Series employs a compression ratio of about 1.4:1.

Note 4: DN-200 Series uses lightweight compression for some high bit rate formats (e.g. 4K /60p), which adds few extra lines of latency. For Fast Switch, Video Wall, and MultiViewer modes, a maximum of 2 frames of latency translates to not more than 33.3 msec. @ 60Hz and not more than 67.7 msec @ 30Hz.

Note 5: A system may operate concurrently in Matrix Switching, Video Wall, and MultiViewer modes.

Note 6: The DisplayNet Server™ is recommended for optimal system configuration. Please see the DisplayNet DN-200 Series Hardware Manual for details on the DisplayNet Server™ specifications, installation, and use.

Note 7: All specifications are subject to change without notice.
