Product Overview: MG Series AV over IP System

Description: The MG series is a digitized, distributed image processing and control system designed for networked environments. It features encoders that collect audio and video signals from various sources, transcoding them into IP streams. Decoders then receive these streams and display the content on multiple devices, facilitating the sharing of audio and video across networks.

Key Features:

  • High Performance Audio and Video:
    • Utilizes H.264 and H.265 protocols for efficient, low-latency transmission.
    • Supports high-definition video up to 4K×2K@60Hz 4:2:2, maintaining excellent color fidelity and image stability.
    • System latency as low as 60 ms ensures real-time viewing experiences.
  • Advanced Synchronization:
    • Unique technology in decoders ensures synchronized output across multiple devices, eliminating image tearing in high-speed videos.
  • KVM Control and Cross-Platform Functionality:
    • Enables control across different platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS) with a single keyboard and mouse.
    • Features cross-screen mouse roaming, allowing seamless operation across multiple monitors.
  • Efficient Collaboration Tools:
    • Supports signal pushing between operators and screens for effective problem-solving and decision-making.
  • Web-Based Management:
    • Easy and intuitive web interface for device and resolution management, permissions, updates, and more.

Deployment and Management:

  • Decentralized Design:
    • Suitable for discrete, geographically scattered installations with unified control over all nodes.
    • Supports rapid scaling and integration of new nodes via IP-based architecture.
  • Security and Stability:
    • Role-based access control for secure and efficient user management.
    • Independent node operation ensures system resilience; single node issues do not impact overall system functionality.
  • Ease of Maintenance:
    • Devices can be added or configured remotely, with automatic synchronization of system settings.

Innovative Usability Features:

  • Man-Device Separation:
    • Processors are centralized in a single location, reducing clutter and noise at the control center.
    • Enhances data security and operational efficiency.
  • Visual Management:
    • Real-time previews and detailed screen layout controls ensure precise content display and management.
  • Versatile Video and Audio Handling:
    • Supports multiple signal formats including HDMI, DP, and IP.
    • Compatible with 4K and various other resolutions.
    • Includes options for layering, input source management, and audio configuration.
  • Power Options and Connectivity:
    • Dual power supply options (PoE/DC12V).
    • Features OPT and Ethernet ports for reliable connectivity.

Additional Capabilities:

  • Customization and Control:
    • Flexible screen management with options for OSD text customization and preset playlists.
    • Comprehensive input source settings including EDID management and logo customization.

System Maintenance and Updates:

  • Firmware can be updated via a web interface which also supports system backups and device management.
