Vaddio’s simplest lecture capture device yet! We call our AV Bridge 2x1 the classroom-in-a-box solution because it enables simple distribution, production, and capture of high-quality networked Dante audio, analog audio, and two HD video sources.
Two HDMI inputs allow you to connect either two cameras or a camera and PC display on a platform that easily switches between sources and delivers useful picture-in-picture (PIP) video streams. Concurrent 1080p USB 3.0, HDMI, and IP streaming allow for flexible video distribution. Use the AV Bridge 2x1 to simultaneously record to a local PC, magnify the speaker video through a room projector, and stream the lecture to popular online platforms – without the need for special drivers or additional applications.
The AV Bridge 2x1 has robust audio mixing capabilities as well. A 4x4 Dante I/O allows for scalable networked audio to meet the needs of any application. Install the AV Bridge 2x1 in your existing classroom designs by utilizing the 2-channel analog audio I/O and adding in new HD video sources.
Experience worry-free presentations with the automation features built into the AV Bridge 2x1. Connect Vaddio trigger devices like the StepVIEW Mat to recall a library of macros built into the web-based user interface. Control PIP settings, video sources, camera position presets and more with intuitive API integration for third party applications and control hardware. Available PIP layouts include side by side, top bottom, and your choice of four corner inset. Store graphic overlays such as a company logo or speaker name to add production quality to everyday events.
The AV Bridge 2x1 is excellent for videoconferencing applications. Share more of the conference room when in video calls. Switch between a view of the boardroom table and the action at the whiteboard without missing a beat. Participate with crystal clear audio through built-in echo cancellation, ensuring both sides of the conversation are heard without annoying feedback issues common with inexpensive audio devices.
The AV Bridge 2x1 is the must-have device you need for simple, reliable multi-camera installations.
The MATRIX PRO was designed for integrators in order to reduce the complexity of AV system design and implementation, while delivering the features and capabilities most sought after by today�s sophisticated end user.
MATRIX PRO fits into many applications, which include UC and video conferencing, audio conferencing, lecture capture, local AV presentations and more! It�s perfect for small, medium, and even large venues such as classrooms, boardrooms, auditoriums, lecture halls or anywhere that high quality audio, video, network, streaming and control is mission critical. This 2-RU system-in-a-box pairs up with the EasyUSB� MicPODs, Ceiling MicPODs and interfaces with ZoomSHOT�, WideSHOT�, and Vaddio HD PTZ cameras.
The AV Bridge MATRIX PRO combines the functionality of the AV Bridge encoder with IP and USB 2.0 (UVC & UAC) streaming, a four input seamless HD video presentation switcher, three (3) Quick-Connect� Interfaces for Vaddio cameras with EZCamera� Cat-5 connectivity, an 8 x 4 cross-point audio matrix with integrated AEC, four (4) EasyMic� Ports for Vaddio ceiling or table mics with built-in echo cancellation and a web server for configuration programming, control and remote management. The AV Bridge MATRIX PRO replaces a rack full of gear, and then some.
The AV Bridge CONFERENCE offers a flexible A/V interface that is controllable with an embedded web server and the current settings are viewable from the front panel menu system. It accepts a multitude of video input resolutions from standard definition composite video (480i/NTSC and 576i/PAL) all the way up to HD 1080p/60 in HDMI and YPbPr, including the most relevant wide-screen VESA type PC resolutions (RGBHV or DVI).
The USB streaming functions using MJPEG (Motion JPEG) and standard UVC (Universal Video Class) with UAC (Universal Audio Class) drivers eliminate the need for installation of custom software drivers on the Host PC. The IP streaming uses RTSP or HLS (Apple�s variant on HTTP streaming) and encodes H.264 video with AAC Audio. The Ethernet port also provides access to internal web pages for control, setup, and updating the software.
Use the AV Bridge CONFERENCE in UC conferencing applications to �bridge� video and audio signals into a PC or retrofit existing conference rooms by simply plugging a USB cable into a Host PC or connecting to an IP network.
The AV Bridge CONFERENCE supports high definition encoding of audio and video sources, producing superior quality results at the fraction of the cost of other similar products. It seamlessly integrates with Vaddio�s HD cameras, presentation systems, video mixing consoles, and other pro audio products with AEC. The AV Bridge CONFERENCE is an unsurpassable value due to its ease of use, flexibility, and plug & play functionality.
