Lightware VINX-110-HDMI-DEC


AV Over IP Scaling Multimedia Extender with USB KVM, RS-232 and IR

Our AV-Over-IP system for Gigabit Ethernet networks, the VINX series devices are popular products, which can also run in point-to-point configuration and have diverse application possibilities, especially recommended for applications where scalability, flexibility and rapid deployment are in focus. They are simple to install and to operate, and have numerous built-in services most other manufacturers only provide for an extra cost. The open API of the VINX devices allow easy integration with third party systems. 



The operation of VINX-120- HDMI-ENC and VINX-110-HDMI-DEC can be expanded from a simple point-to-point application to unlimited endpoints for the ultimate in virtual matrix switching, digital signage and signal extension. The extenders include our Advanced EDID Management system and decoders are capable of scaling the video signal up to the maximum supported resolution of 4K UHD @ 30 Hz. RS-232 and IR control channels are supported. The built-in USB ports support KVM function and can also handle USB 2.0 mass storage. The units are HDCP compliant.

One of the most popular of the unique features of VINX is the Video Wall setup, reducing the time needed to install a video wall to a fraction of the time needed with other systems. The feature options include gap and bezel adjustment, which can be performed in batch.


The efficient design of all VINX models allows passive, fanless cooling. Unlike other third party models in this product category, VINX have noiseless operation, fitting even the most silent application environments.


VINX series also features crosspoint view: available in both the free Lightware Device Controller (LDC) management software and the built-in web in the devices, the crosspoint view shows the available input and output ports of all connected encoder and decoder units, and allows switching the signals across them. The signal can also be switched to a video wall output assembled from several VINX units and acting as a single display sink. A special keyboard combination can be linked with various sources to switch signals.


The built-in, selectable Video and Graphic Modes optimize streaming and compression to match the transferred media. The Variable Bitrate feature provides an even more accurate adjustment option for smart bandwidth management, adjustable between 10 Mbps and 800 Mbps.


We have developed a 3 RU sized PRC-16 Powered Rackmount Cage for VINX-120- HDMI-ENC and VINX-110-HDMI-DEC, which allows convenient mounting for up to 16 devices in any combination, also providing power to the mounted units.
