DisplayNet DN-200 Series: Cutting Edge AV-over-IP
The DN-200 Series is a dramatic extension of the DisplayNet AV-over-IP product line. It leverages the latest SDVoE technology to distribute uncompressed AV signals with resolutions up to 4K /60p over a 10GbE Ethernet network. The DN-200 Series adds support for HDMI 2.0 with up to 12-bit color, HDCP 2.2, DisplayPort 1.2, and High Speed USB 2.0. A high-performance scaler in both the Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) units enables very Fast Switching, MultiViewer, and enhanced Video Wall processing. The DN-200 Series supports twisted pair (CAT6a or CAT7) media up to 328 ft. (100 meters), or Fiber Optic media using an industry standard SFP+ module supporting extension distances up to 18 miles (30 km).
The DN-200 Series consists of four (4) different versions: DN-210, DN-210U, DN-220, and DN-220U. The DN-210 units include a copper network port for the 10GbE link, whereas the DN-220 units employ an optical 10GbE port. The DN-210U and DN-220U include High Speed USB 2.0 connectivity.
