With the widespread use of digital connectivity such as HDMI, DVI and Display Port the AV industry has produced products that allow integrators to scale analogue signals such as VGA to Digital, and distribute over HDMI, CAT6 and CAT5 networks.
With the advent of 4K resolution – high bandwidth digital products have been designed for switching and distribution of signals over CAT6 or Fibre. These products send and distribute the signal in a native state with no compression so every component in the system has to comply with the bandwidth needs.
As an alternative distribution solutions involving a clients network are now available with signals being converted and streamed over standard networks and then received and converted back at the display ends.
With so many products on the market you need an integrator like Insight to design a system around your needs and requirements and products would be chosen accordingly to those needs and requirements.
