The FHD264 is a family of HDMI over IP Senders (encoders) and Receivers (decoders) which distribute up to 64 Full-HD video signals to 250+ displays on a 1 Gigabit local area network (LAN). They also extend Serial RS-232 communications and IR remote signals. HDMI Audio is extracted and available on a convenient 3.5mm stereo jack on both the Sender and the Receiver. The FHD264-S Sender provides local HDMI output. Fail-Safe video routing is available through the Receiver in case of a loss of video at the Sender end.
Each device provides a two-line front panel LCD that can be used to configure or monitor parameters such as IP settings, multicast group selection and assignment of device names.
The RS-232 serial ports on each unit can be used in SoIP mode (Serial over IP). This allows 3rd party IP controllers to control peripheral equipment via RS-232. For example, if the RS-232 of a receiver is connected to a video projector, you can turn the projector on/off via telnet commands.
All devices support IEEE 802.3af PoE (Power over Ethernet). When connected to a network switch with PoE, no additional power supply is needed. An optional power supply is included in the box.
