AVPro Edge’s second-generation AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 feature continued evolution to MXNet 1G performance and feature sets made possible by refinements to the application-specific integrated circuit, enhancing native 4K/60fps video playback plus support for high bitrate audio formats with ARC / eARC.
Sioux Falls, Nov. 09, 2022 – AVPro Edge is pleased to announce availability of two new additions to its MXNet 1G ecosystem of products, the AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 encoder/ transmitter and its companion decoder / receiver, the AC-MXNET-1G-DV2.
AVPro Edge’s artful finesse to the MXNet 1G core ASIC architecture retains all original design features while exacting substantial enhancements to the video encoding/decoding engines, elevating Evolution II video processing to natively support 4K/60fps 4:4:4 RGB and YCbCr with 10- & 12-bit depth per color. This newly developed IC design additionally provides native support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG, with latency in the sub-milliseconds - a visually imperceptible zero. Audio capabilities are bolstered, now supporting Dolby Atmos and IMAX Enhanced DTS:X, plus other high bitrate formats along with capabilities for ARC and eARC.
AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 join existing products within the MXNet 1G ecosystem, fully compatible with the AC-MXNET-CBOX control center, all MXNet 1G switches and is configurable using AVPro Edge’s proprietary MXNET Mentor software. MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 may coexist alongside first generation encoders and decoders within installed systems or new deployments however, they are required to be used exclusively in EVO II transmitter-to-EVO II decoder(s) pairings only.
Key Benefits For Using The AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2
MXNet 1G Continued Evolution: The AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 represent the next step forward on the evolutionary path of the MXNet Platform encompassing an industry-first, holistically integrated approach to AV over IP video distribution from a solo manufacturer.
AVPro Edge’s exclusive MXNet Platform offers the only proprietary, hyper-optimized AV over IP ecosystem of network-based encoders, decoders and managed switches guided from a centralized control unit by MXNet Mentor, our in-house engineered setup and system utilities management software solution.
Full 4K/60fps Support: First-generation MXNet Encoders and Decoders were unable to support 4K/60fps 4:4:4 RGB / YCbCr, 10- and 12-bit natively or with dynamic metadata, instead relying on AVPro Edge’s Invisible Compression Technology (ICT) algorithm to deliver a compelling image though the system was optimized for 4K/30fps, absent dynamic metadata and high bitrate multi-channel audio.
When not lossless, the advanced encoding / decoding engine resident on the new ASIC developed for EVO II Encoders and Decoders applies a limited, ultra-light compression, composing an artifact free image upon decoding, including Dolby Vision or HDR10+ content.
The new IC renders improved document text with greater detail, while providing background information in video content with nuanced delineation and enhanced definition.
Ultra-low Latency: Latency measures in the sub-milliseconds, visually imperceptible and essentially, zero.
Audio High Bitrate Support: High bitrate, eight-channel surround codecs such as Dolby Atmos and IMAX Enhanced DTS:X are now supported, plus streaming high bitrate HD audio-only codecs.
ARC and eARC: AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 downstream decoders now include ARC and eARC, supplementing the addition of high bitrate multi-channel codec support.
Improved Preview Thumbnails: First generation MXNet supported static thumbnails with 960X540 pixel resolution, turning over every 10 seconds. EVO II supports third-party media substreaming through an HTTP address, at an improved pixel resolution of 1024x576.
