Budapest, Hungary, 09 June 2022 – Lightware Visual Engineering is highlighting a diverse range of new and enhanced professional A/V solutions at InfoComm 2022, on Booth #W1831. From its Taurus universal matrix switchers to UBEX AV-over-IP devices and more, the Lightware technologies on display combine the right mix of performance, quality and efficiency needed by commercial end-users and system integrators.

Lightware is also announcing the official opening of its new global training facility, the Lightware Discovery Center, based in Las Vegas. For more information on all Lightware products and demos at InfoComm, visit www.go.lightware.com/infocomm-2022.

“The professional AV/IT landscape is constantly changing, with an increasing emphasis on network connectivity, remote access and interactive collaboration,” said Gergely Vida, CEO at Lightware Visual Engineering. “Attendees will experience our latest technology innovations and comprehensive solutions designed for every application, requirement and budget as well as our commitment to training and education – a demonstration of our end-to-end support for the A/V industry.”

UBEX

UBEX is an AV-over-IP device that delivers pixel-accurate 4K60 video in real-time with Dolby Atmos capabilities for enhanced immersive experiences in live events, eSports or XR screen applications. Key features include pixel accurate delivery allowing uncompressed 4K60 4:4:4 video signals, ultra-low latency as low as 0.01 ms and versatile operations combining a receiver, transmitter and transceiver in one box.

UBEX units can connect to create a complex network through standard Ethernet switches with virtually unlimited numbers of endpoints while providing enhanced redundancy. The UBEX system includes a double-scaling feature that halves the number of endpoints needed for videowalls and allows the UBEX system to function as a single device for this purpose.

VINX

The VINX series of AV-over-IP devices for 1G Ethernet networks can also operate in point-to-point configuration with diverse application possibilities. VINX devices include built-in USB 2.0 ports for KVM functionality and advanced support for all major EDID resolutions

VINX is a compact yet powerful device that offers a wide-range of features from HDCP to remote powering to Smart Bandwith Management allowing users to optimize signal management and AV system performance.

The 1G VINX device family, the “little brother” to UBEX, is also growing with the addition of a new wallplate that makes installation even easier and more convenient. Lightware is also adding a password-protected login function to VINX devices, requiring end-users and integrators to use a password to configure their devices for added protection against unauthorized access.

Taurus & Cisco Meeting Room Solutions

Lightware will highlight its efforts to tackle the common challenges of meeting rooms and collaboration environments, demonstrating its ongoing integrations with Cisco combined with the Taurus UCX universal matrix switcher series.

The Taurus platform combines USB-C technology with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) capabilities, allowing users to easily share their content, switch hosts and control their meeting room, directly from their own laptop. Users can connect to their choice of videoconferencing software: Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Webex

With one cable, users can share their work and send video, audio, control and Ethernet signals as well as charge their own laptop while connected to the Taurus UCX to avoid interruptions for important meetings and presentations.

The recent Taurus firmware version 1.4 allows devices to send basic Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) commands directly through their HDMI outputs, switch devices on/off, control volume or switch between input ports. This eliminates the need to use serial ports to control end-point devices, giving users and integrators easier control and streamlining system installation and configuration.

Lightware’s Cisco integration brings ease and simplicity into the control of rooms and meeting spaces powered by Cisco Webex Room Devices, while also empowering the Cisco Touch 10 and Room Navigator with additional features.

TPX

TPX devices are Lightware’s new, SDVoE-compatible, next-generation point-to-point extenders that allow HDMI 2.0 signal management over a single CATx cable with HDCP 2.3 and Dolby Vision support. TPX extenders can handle various connectivity standards, from bi-directional RS-232 and command injection over IR.

TPX devices enable remote powering for greater efficiency with fewer cables, ultra-low latency (as low as 0.01 ms latency) and compact size with more units able to fit into the same rack space. The newest compact TPX extenders use AVX technology combined with HDMI 2.0 capabilities.

Lightware Discovery Center

The Lightware Discovery Center features a dedicated training room fully equipped with the company’s latest signal management products. The venue is designed to supplement Lightware’s extensive online efforts by providing an in-person venue for training and education. The state-of-the-art facility offers the opportunity for AV professionals to experiment and interact with a variety of Lightware devices, understand the simplicity and flexibility of integrating a Lightware system, and experience Lightware’s high-performance device features.
