HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in Networked AV, today
announced the new AMX N2300 Series of 4K video over IP solutions. This addition to
AMX’s existing range of 4K products adds an extremely cost-effective 4K video
distribution solution for many common applications. With a bandwidth of less than
200 megabits per second, users can distribute 4K video over existing Gigabit
Ethernet networks with a latency of only one frame.

“The new N2300 Series furthers AMX’s commitment to provide a full range of
networked AV solutions,’ says Lee Dodson, Sr. Director, Enterprise Marketing. “AMX
has a great range of 4K solutions, and the N2300 Series takes that a step further,
opening up 4K video over IP to even more customers at a lower price point and with
incredibly low bandwidth and latency.’ The new AMX N2300 Series comes in
addition to the existing AMX N2151/N2251 encoders and decoders, which offer
JPEG2000-based 4K Networked AV distribution.

AMX ensures simple installation of the N2300 Series with support for HDMI 2.0 and
HDCP 2.2, making the line compatible with the latest 4K sources and displays.
“Implementation of the AMX N2300 Series is as easy as ever,’ says Paul Krizan,
Product Manager, Networked AV for HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The use of the
IP network for distribution allows for flexible and scalable system designs. Systems
can be as small as a single encoder and decoder or grow to meet the requirements
of a larger system simply by installing additional units.’ The N2300 encoders and
decoders are PoE-powered, avoiding the need for an external power supply and thus
simplifying installation. The products do not contain and internal fan for cooling,
making them perfect for use in quiet environments.

“The AMX N2300 Series leverages nearly a decade of expertise in Networked AV
solutions,’ says Krizan. “Users familiar with the existing HARMAN Networked AV
products will find these new products very familiar, as they include the same APIs,
software and web interfaces as existing Networked AV products.’ Like other AMX
Networked AV products, the N2300 Series has Native NetLinx capabilities for fast
integration into HARMAN solutions. Additional features include keyboard/mouse
support, RJ-45 and SFP network connections, support for balanced and unbalanced
analogue audio, and RS-232 and IR ports for device control.

The NMX-DEC-N2322 decoder is available as a standalone unit perfect for mounting
behind a display. The NMX-ENC-N2312 encoder is available both in standalone and
card-based configurations, providing options for installation near a source or in a
rack, using the AMX N9206 2RU Rack Mount Cage. The AMX N9206 holds up to six
cards for a clean rack mount installation and optional consolidated power supply.
The AMX N2300 Series is expected to be available in November 2016.
