Keeping up the tradition of advancing transmission technology, ComNet will again be introducing a long list of new and functional solutions to signal transmission challenges at IFSEC.
The migration to IP Video is in full swing, but we all know that sometimes there is a list of challenges often encountered to make it work seamlessly. To solve some of those challenges, ComNet has expanded its line of Self-Managed Switches.
Last year, ComNet successful introduced the CNFE6+2USPoE, the first switch that allowed up to six 10/100Mbps IP streams be combined and forwarded optically to the next switch, PC or Ethernet connection. This unit features two optical ports for “Drop and Insert” capabilities. This year ComNet introduces two new products, the CNFE4+1SMS, a four port electrical with one optical port designed to forward the Ethernet data from four electrical ports through the optical FX port to the next switch. ComNet also introduces the CNFE4SMS that combines Ethernet data from 3 electrical TX ports be combined and forwarded through the fourth TX port to the next switch.
This family of self-managed switches offers management without the cost or user knowledge required for a managed switch. This port-configured Ethernet switch allows the user to create a virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) that manages the Ethernet data being transported, thereby preventing network flooding. All are pre-programmed and meets the IEEE 802.1x VLAN management standard. The ComNet SMS switch group is a cost-effective and easy way to add IP Video to a network and is designed for use in harsh environmental applications.
ComNet is also entering the high-performance video transmission market by introducing HDMI video over optical fiber. The ComNet FVT/FVRHDMI transmits a high-resolution HDMI signal over one multimode fiber up to 1000 meters for the 1080p60 format. The FVT/FVRHDMI is capable of transmitting uncompressed high-resolution bi-directional communications with full HDCP copyright protection, EDID and CEC connection functionality. HDCP encryption is not affected or compromised by these units. It transmits pixel-for-pixel images with a full 24-bit scan rate with no picture degradation. This unit is fully compatible with all HDMI compliant devices and supports all sync configurations.
