SYMETRIX & VISIONARY SOLUTIONS EXPAND STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

May 17, 2018 News

and announce native integration of Solutions’ Duet Dante-enabled video encoder and decoder products into Symetrix’ DSP programming and control software. The integration, co-developed by Symetrix and Solutions, enables PacketAV Duet and E/D4100 video encoders and decoders to appear as native units in Composer 7.1 and later. Harnessing the flexibility and scalability of converged IP networks, PacketAV Matrix products ultra low-latency 4K video can be streamed over IP together with a Dante-enabled Symetrix DSP , offering a complete Audio, Video, and Control solution, all while bypassing the constraints of traditional switch matrix systems.

Scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2018, Symetrix Composer 7.1 takes full command of the PacketAV Matrix products, with drag and drop configuration, network discovery, video routing, and video wall control. Live video previews for at-a-glance confidence monitoring of both encoders and decoders are supported, and may be freely placed on custom user interfaces deployed to Windows- or Web-based devices.

Composer also fully manages the Dante audio interfaces on Duet products, including discovery, device naming, channel naming, and audio routing. Using Visionary’s PacketAV Duet encoders and decoders, audio from an source may be stripped off and routed through the DSP for processing, mixed with other sources, and distributed to sound reinforcement systems throughout a facility, as well as re-embedded into the IP video stream for local playback at the displays.

A design can be completed offline, without . Once is installed, Composer efficiently locates all on the network; updates and reconciles network names, IP addresses and channel configurations as necessary; and configures initial audio and video routes.

“We are very excited to have Visionary Solutions as an integration partner,” declares Symetrix Senior Product Manager Trent Wagner. “PacketAV Matrix products elegantly bridge the IP video and IP audio worlds, while Symetrix DSP and control makes system management effortless.”

“System designers will reap major benefits from this new level of integration,” observes Scott Freshman, Chief Operating Officer for Visionary Solutions. “Composer is well known for its ease of use, and with version 7.1, configuration and management of PacketAV Matrix products becomes faster and simpler than ever.”

Visitors to Infocomm 2018 in Las Vegas can get a hands-on demo of PacketAV Duet/Composer integration at both the Symetrix booth C1152 and Visionary Solutions booth C1153.
