PERFORMANCE & VERSATILITY
Introducing the all-new NetworkHD 500 series. The 500 series take what you know and love about the 400 series and improves in almost every way! Full HDMI 2.0 encoding/decoding, faster switching speeds, higher quality preview streams and fiber connectivity are just some of the major advances that have been made.
HDMI 2.0 ENCODING
Capable of encoding full HDMI 2.0 content. This includes 4K60 4:4:4 8bit and high dynamic range video including Dolby Vision, HDR10 & HLG up to 12bit 4:2:2 at 60Hz over a 1GbE network.
ETHERNET OR FIBER
Equipped with both Ethernet and Fiber outputs, the 500 series offers flexibility for any installation. Ethernet can support transmissions up to 100m (328ft) and fiber is capable of a stunning 550m (1800ft) using OM3 MMF.
AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL
Audio Return Channel (ARC) via HDMI allows audio from a display to transmit over the network to a 500 series encoder for connection to a compatible AVR. ARC supports up to Dolby Digital Plus and DTS 5.1 formats. Have an older display? Take advantage of the Toslink passthrough to transmit audio in the same way.
Create captivating large format video walls with the ability to process up to 256 screens (16×16). Easily adjust for screen bezels to ensure the video is picture-perfect. The 500 series also allow you to create mosaic style walls with rotated screens!
Equipped with the latest security protocols including SSH, TLS and HTTPS. Data and communications from the 500 series in encrypted end-to-end.
Less than a single frame a latency (16ms) when in passthrough mode allows content to be distributed without any perceivable delay.
The 500s are fully compatible with the NetworkHD Touch control app. Effortlessly control matrix and video wall switching with preview streams of each encoder.
