DN-100 Series Overview

The DN-100 Series is the first in an expanding range of DisplayNet AV-over-IP products. Each DN-100TX transmitter unit accepts multiple source signals including HDMI (with embedded audio and HDCP), analog stereo audio, bidirectional IR, RS-232, and 1GbE Ethernet. Using SDVoE technology, these input signals are packetized into a single 10GbE link, without the use of CODECs, and are distributed to destinations via an off-the-shelf 10GbE network switch using a single CAT6a or CAT7 cable up to 328 ft. (100 meters). The 10GbE switch provides a highly efficient and reliable means of distributing AV signals from many sources to an array of DN-100RX receiver units, which convert the packetized 10GbE data to AV output signals at the destination in real time without frame latency or any loss of image quality.

The DN-100 Series distributes uncompressed video with resolutions up to 4K /30p (4:4:4) and 4K /60p (4:2:0) without image artifacts and without frame latency. Video signals may be routed in Point-to-Point, Matrix Switching and Video Wall modes all in the same system. For optimum flexibility, each signal layer (Video, Audio, IR, RS‑232, etc.) can be routed completely independently from one another. Advanced audio features are supported, including: networked audio, audio embedding, de-embedding and down‑mixing. DN‑100 Series transmitter and receiver units are controlled by a DisplayNet Server™, which includes powerful DisplayNet Manager™ software that enables the system to be managed using any third party controller using simple Telnet commands.

  • Utilizes SDVoE Technology to distribute AV signals with off-the-shelf 10GbE network switches
  • Fast / Seamless Switching of HDMI signals up to 4K /30p (4:4:4), and 4K /60p (4:2:0)
  • Vastly superior to existing Video-over-IP products: zero frame latency, zero compression, zero artifacts
  • Supports HDMI, HDCP, Embedded Audio, Analog Stereo Audio, Downmixed Audio, RS-232, Bidirectional IR, and 1GbE over 10GbE link
  • Fully Routable, Independent Switching Layers for all signal types: Video, Analog Audio, Downmixed Audio, IR, RS-232
  • Supports Audio Embedding, De-embedding and Down-Mixing
  • Create, save, and use video wall configurations with optimized bezel correction
  • Unconstrained scalability - Size of I/O array only limited by number of 10GbE switch ports
  • Maximum range up to 100 meters (328 ft.) using a single CAT6a or CAT7 cable
  • DisplayNet Server™ and DisplayNet Manager™ enable deep integration into new or existing AV systems
  • All endpoints include a built-in 1GbE Ethernet switch for high-speed local network connections
  • 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
  • Capable of concurrent Video Wall and Matrix Switching operation - supports diverse range of applications
  • Embedded Local Management - DisplayNet™ auto-configures all connected devices even in the most complex networked systems, thus eliminating the need for complicated network switch configuration
