AVPro Edge is pleased to announce availability of two new additions to its MXNet 1G ecosystem of products, the AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 encoder/ transmitter and its companion decoder / receiver, the AC-MXNET-1G-DV2.
AVPro Edge’s artful finesse to the MXNet 1G core ASIC architecture retains all original design features while exacting substantial enhancements to the video encoding/decoding engines, elevating Evolution II video processing to natively support 4K/60fps 4:4:4 RGB and YCbCr with 10- & 12-bit depth per color. This newly developed IC design additionally provides native support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG, with latency in the sub-milliseconds - a visually imperceptible zero. Audio capabilities are bolstered, now supporting Dolby Atmos and IMAX Enhanced DTS:X, plus other high bitrate formats along with capabilities for ARC and eARC.
AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 join existing products within the MXNet 1G ecosystem, fully compatible with the AC-MXNET-CBOX control center, all MXNet 1G switches and is configurable using AVPro Edge’s proprietary MXNET Mentor software. MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 may coexist alongside first generation encoders and decoders within installed systems or new deployments however, they are required to be used exclusively in EVO II transmitter-to-EVO II decoder(s) pairings only.
RemoteIP Cable: A New Way to Transcend Distance Limitations of 100 m
It’s a complex design challenge that building teams have grappled with for years: installing IoT devices in locations that allow them to fulfill their purpose while also staying within 100 m of a telecommunications room so the devices can connect to the network for remote monitoring and to share data.
To streamline the acceptance of new technologies as faster application speeds develop, Category cabling has historically been capped at a channel length of 100 m per ANSI/TIA-568 cabling standards. This means that telecommunications rooms are needed within 100 m of each network-connected device.
But this standard places limitations on where and how devices can be deployed. Depending on the type of device and its location, it may require a longer channel length. What about surveillance cameras in parking lots? An access control panel at a rarely used building entrance/exit? A wireless access point in an outdoor patio or pool area? PoE LED lighting fixtures in the middle of an expansive open office space? A sensor on a roof-mounted fan?
That’s why Belden designed its new RemoteIP Cables. They provide a viable and affordable option for applications where Category cabling (literally) falls short.

BirdDog Play Low-Cost AVoIP Decoder: @$149 and NOW SHIPPING, BirdDog Play changes the budgetary math for AVoIP
Unfortunately, robust network video distribution is still thought of as out of reach for many clients. At only $149 MSRP and supporting full-bandwidth NDI up to 1080p60 and NDI HX up to 4K UHD60p, massive AVoIP signal distribution is now in-budget even for cash strapped venues, corporations, and houses-of-worship. In fact, it will probably save money versus older technologies.
Picture quality is as stellar as always, and you get all the benefits of the BirdDog and NDI ecosystems including prolific compatibility across dozens of manufacturers and BirdDog’s killer management and control/processing applications. The only tradeoff versus BirdDog’s FPGA-based converters is a couple frames of latency, which should be just fine for most use cases. PLAY automatically scans your network for NDI® sources and brings them up on the display. Navigate using the TV remote control, or in integrated systems, use BirdDog’s robust API or available Crestron, Q-SYS, and Symetrix modules.
Think of Play as an integration-friendly Roku-like device for AVoIP. Play is tiny, generates basically no heat, has no fan, can be controlled many ways, speaks CEC to the display, and is backed by BirdDog’s US-based global support team and distribution structure.
Of course, it all gets so much cooler when used as part of BirdDog’s complete ecosystem, which is all fully compatible with the massive world of NDI by NewTek. Just wait until you see what you can do with BirdDog cameras and the upcoming Pod NDI to USB Webcam converter.

Big Dog Power: The Future of Power Distribution
MetraAV® has designed their revolutionary new Big Dog Power Smart Power Distribution Unit (PDU) with integration professionals in mind. This innovation combines all the features integrators need into one PDU to deliver surge protection, remote control, smart home integration, rack temperature management, and more. Twelve individually controllable outlets have power metering, self-healing, and automatic reboot capabilities for smarter and easier remote management of connected devices. Devices can be powered on and off without an internet connection, allowing for scheduled reboots and an easy network equipment power reset that can solve the most common technical issues. For technicians, this means reduction of time-intensive support calls and truck rolls.
The PR-R13PI Smart Outlet PDU includes a surge mileage meter that shows when surges have occurred and the percentage of remaining protection. When a surge happens, two removable surge protection modules can be replaced without sacrificing the entire PDU, making this solution unique and cost-effective. Temperature
control is also automated with four magnetic temperature sensors that can be used to program turning on a fan or turning off devices when the temperature gets too high. The 13th service outlet powers a temporary device without having to reach behind the PDU.
Big Dog Power’s flexible app is designed to work how integrators work, with easy programming that can be set up by outlet or device to mimic the workflow of their choice. Integrators can monitor all their clients within the Big Dog Power app, which is free to download. The PDU will also work with other popular automation platforms to allow the user to continue managing their devices through the same control system app. View more information at BigDogPower.com, and see other products from this line including three alternate, scaled-down versions that are available to suit the needs of smaller systems.

This month, we are excited to announce the launch of two highly-anticipated products: Yamaha’s CS-800 Video SoundBar and CS-500 Video Collaboration System. Yamaha’s new Video Collaboration Systems deliver the most accurate, unifying, real-time hybrid experience.
Utilizing the latest AI technology, both the CS-800 and CS-500 combine voice and video data to pinpoint participants speaking in open spaces. While other video sound bars use beamforming technology, many are only focused laterally, meaning that all other noise above and below the participant are also picked up by the microphone. Yamaha’s unique Hexa-Microphone captures the exact lateral and linear location of the voice, without also capturing unwanted background noise. Yamaha’s CS-800 and CS-500 also feature Smart Framing technology that automatically frames relevant participants in the meeting.
With only one USB connection, a dual-facing remote, and flexible installation options, Yamaha’s video collaboration systems are the most versatile and user-friendly product on the market, ideal for both huddle rooms and open spaces. Both products are Zoom certified and compatible with all major conferencing software. The CS-800 also includes Yamaha’s well-loved speaker, while the CS-500 utilizes a laptop speaker.
