The Vaddio Audio-Video Bridge enables you to bring Room AV devices into the digital domain. It is a room based HD Media Streaming appliance enabling IP or USB steaming of content originating from audio and video equipment.
The Audio-Video Bridge combines the capabilities of PC capture devices with that of IP streaming devices to create a single solution to digital enabled collection, recording, and distribution content within meeting rooms, lecture halls, and houses of worship. Both USB and network streaming functions are based upon open standards allowing easy integration with existing network infrastructure, services, or software applications for recording, publishing, and delivering media to the Wide Area Network.
The Audio-Video Bridge incorporates open standards of H.264 /MPEG4/AVC network streaming protocols that are compatible with QT, Windows Media, and VLC players. Streaming via HLS or RTSP for live events delivers content of the meeting to the masses. The USB streaming functions utilize MJPEG and standard UVC and UAC drivers eliminating the need for custom software drivers to be installed on the PC. The USB streaming capabilities facilitates using the room’s AV system for PC-based unified communication software such as Skype, Microsoft Lync, and Google+. The AV Bridge emulates a web cam and USB audio device, making PC conferencing or recording a simple plug and play operation.
The Audio-Video Bridge is designed for pro AV applications offering flexible audio and video interfaces and customizable configurations that are accessible from the embedded web server or front panel menu system. The AV Bridge includes 3 switchable video inputs to include HDMI, RGB, and standard definition along with a stereo pair of audio channels selectable between balanced or unbalanced line level inputs. The AV Bridge accepts a multitude of video resolutions ranging from 1080p/60 to VESA resolutions used with PC screens. Automated video processing functions from scaling to color corrections simplifies configuration while maintaining good video quality. An advanced high definition H.264 encoder offers the installer the ability to optimize the stream for the desired bit rate, resolution, and frame rate. Predefined encoding presets allow 1-button activation of the popular streaming profile to quickly transition the room’s application for the next meeting.
