AV over IP (or networked AV as it is commonly known) is the transmission of audio, video and other signals over the Internet, LAN or WAN networks.
It takes a signal from an AV source, such as a media player or PC and passes it through an encoder, which breaks it down into manageable chunks of digital data called packets. This data travels through the network and is converted back into a compatible AV signal when it reaches the decoder. The signal is then received by output device (speaker, display, projector etc.)
When transmitting and receiving from multiple sources, a network switch operates as the focal point between the encoder and decoder, providing separate connections for each input and output device
What are the benefits of AV over IP?
At first glance, AV over IP systems look very similar to traditional AV networking solutions such as HDBaseT, but the use of an IP network brings some key benefits.
- Highly scalable
Network based system can accommodate very large
number of devices – not limited by physical ports on switches, can be expanded with IP ports and only limited by the IP network it is connected to.
Saves cost by avoiding buying expensive AV switches and gives the ability to manage a large number of multi-point displays from a single investment.
- Easy to install
One of the key benefits of AV over IP is that it can utilize existing network infrastructure, depending on the bandwidth required.
Far less cabling with only one cable type: category cable (Ethernet).
Removes physical point-to-point connections, making changes and replacements simpler and more efficient.
- Cost savings
As you can utilize existing networks and equipment if your bandwidth requirements are low, there is minimal cost to move to an AV over IP system. The costs for scaling up are also significantly less that alternative networks.
- Secure & manageable
Can use same methods employed by IT departments – creating specific zones/areas and enabling authorization.
Easy application of encryption technology
- Greater distance
AV over IP can be transmitted over fiber optic or copper cable easily, and although the category cable has a maximum distance of 100 meters, you can add switches and repeaters to increase the distance.
Through IP networks data could theoretically be sent over networks to anywhere worldwide.
AV over IP solutions are perfect for larger installations with a high number of end points, such as universities, stadiums and airports, thanks to huge scalability, less cabling and significant potential cost savings.
Networked AV is also a great option for systems in environments such as sports arenas, corporate offices and public spaces, where user authentication and separate networked zones are required.
Interactive touchscreen is becoming increasingly popular not only for entertainment but also for educational and more commercial purposes. With the ever-increasing demand for touchscreen devices, the technology behind the interactive touchscreen is also evolving. Currently, PCAP and IR type touchscreens are used widely in educational institutes, defense organizations, public places, etc.
Projected Capacitive (PCAP) Touch is the technology we are using these days on our smartphones and tablets. The touchscreen uses electricity from the human body to recognize the interaction and register the touch. Thus, as the definition says, PCAP Touchscreen cannot register any other object than the human body as a touch input. PCAP Touch can provide up to 60 touch points, which allows multiple participants to use the screen simultaneously. This provides users with greater engagement and collaboration. The glass used on the Capacitive Touchscreen is as tough as it needs to be maintained for better output. It is durable and rugged enough to bear the wear and tear of regular classroom usage.
For PCAP Touchscreens can go without bezels, they can be of great aesthetic value for your educational institute, home or business. However, as PCAP Touchscreen cannot register touch if your finger is covered by insulating material like wool, cotton, plastic, rubber, etc. Thus, a smartphone touchscreen doesn’t work when we use gloves.
Infrared (IR) technology is the most commonly used technology in touchscreen devices like interactive touchscreens. The IR touchscreens identify touch by looking for interruptions in a uniform beam of light. IR touchscreens have a grid-like arrangement of LED lights and photo detectors around the edges of the display. They are not visible to the naked eyes but these LEDs are constantly emitting light. When you touch the surface, it creates a hindrance in this light and then the device can determine where this hindrance took place. This allows the IR screen to register exact point of contact.
Since IR Touchscreens touch registers the hindrance in the disturbance of transmission of light, both finger and stylus can be used on such type of screens. They also offer a superior level of strength and ruggedness. Since IR touchscreens don’t require patterning on glass, they are very strong and durable. A major advantage of these types of touch is that it can detect any opaque object including a finger, gloved finger, stylus or pen.
Both IR and PCAP Touchscreen are successful and are being widely used in interactive touchscreen devices around the world. However, for the large displays, IR touch technology remains prevalent while smartphones and tablets rely on a capacitive touchscreen only.
