DN-150 Series Overview

Unprecedented Value – The DisplayNet DN-150 Series represents a breakthrough in performance and value for IP-based AV signal distribution applications. The DN-150 Series utilizes SDVoE technology in a fanless, low-profile case that can be mounted unobtrusively nearly anywhere. Based on the latest SDVoE standard, the DN-150 Series delivers unconstrained scalability, fast switching, zero frame latency and zero artifact image quality, while distributing signals with resolutions of up to 4K/60p (4:4:4) with 8-bit color, or 4K/60p (4:2:2) with 10 or 12-bit color. Like other DisplayNet products, these units provide independent multi-layer routing of HDMI audio and video signals, as well as IR, RS-232, Analog Audio, and 1GbE.

Exceptional Versatility – The DN-150 Series relies on the highly intuitive DisplayNet Manager® user interface that makes set-up and maintenance of these units incredibly fast and easy. Advanced features in this web-based application enable nearly effortless integration with third-party controllers. Full interoperability with other SDVoE products, including the DisplayNet DN-200 Series, greatly enhances system flexibility. The DN-150 Series utilizes optical fiber 10GbE transport, enabling signal extension distances of up 30 KM (18.6 miles) using single-mode fiber.

  • Next-generation AV signal distribution with Zero Artifacts and Zero Frame Latency
  • Supports resolutions of up to 4K /60p with 8-bit color (4:4:4) or 4K /60p with 10 or 12-bit color (4:2:2 or 4:2:0)
  • Independent multi-layer routing for HDMI Video, HDMI Audio, Analog Audio, RS-232, IR, and HDMI-CEC commands.
  • Highly Scalable – supports systems from a few ports to hundreds – limited only to the size of the network switch

  • Compatible with SDVoE-compliant transmitters and receivers, including DisplayNet DN-200 Series.
  • Leverages decades of proven networking technology and massive global deployment of 10GbE networks
  • AV assets no longer need to be aggregated at a central location using an expensive AV Matrix Switcher
  • Eliminates the need for costly, redundant AV networks as all AV assets can now reside on existing IT networks
  • Enables IT Managers to easily manage and distribute AV assets within corporate network environments
  • 10GbE network switches can be up to 60% smaller than typical AV switches and up to 1/10th the cost
  • Scalable – system array limited only by the number of installed endpoints and size (ports) of 10GbE switch
  • High-speed uplinks on many 10GbE switches allow increased port capacity without obsoleting existing hardware
  • Embedded Local Management – DisplayNet auto-configures all connected devices even in the most complex networked systems, thus eliminating the need for complicated network switch configurations
  • Interoperability with all SDVoE-compliant devices and control systems
  • Most DN-200 Series features supported when using DN-150F-TX and DN-200 Series RX

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: 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 3: DN-150 Series uses lightweight compression for some high bit rate formats (e.g. 4K /60p), which adds few extra lines of latency.

Note 4: A system may operate concurrently in Matrix Switching and Video Wall modes.

Note 5: The DisplayNet Server is required for matrix switching operation. Please see the DisplayNet DN-150 Series Hardware Manual for details on the DisplayNet Server    specifications, installation, and use.
