At ISE 2020, Black Box will showcase solutions and products designed for modern, IP-based and 4K AV visualization and distribution. Black Box experts will be available on stand 10-P155 to demo solutions for video walls, digital signage and control rooms. They’ll also be available to discuss recent news, including the company’s new status as a member of the SDVoE Alliance.
Black Box Products at ISE 2020
iCOMPEL Digital Signage Platform
Black Box will demonstrate how its iCOMPEL interactive digital signage platform with system-on-chip technology allows users to build signage, stream content from websites and visualize timetables, events and wayfinding or emergency messages. Users can play, upload and share images, presentations, videos and audio media files on any HDMI screen. The platform supports 4K UHD/HD and simplifies the creation and playout of HTML5-based content. iCOMPEL also allows for remote device management and configuration to facilitate updates/system management and provides on-screen diagnostics and error alerts.
Black Box MCX Multimedia Management System
The new Black Box MCX multimedia distribution and management system takes advantage of SDVoE and 10 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure to allow AV and data payloads to exist on the same IT networks. Through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability, SDVoE technology offers what it says is zero-latency and uncompromised video while offering cost savings along with enhanced system flexibility and scalability.
While enabling converged network AV, Black Box MCX ensures what it says is almost zero latency, instantaneous switching, bandwidth efficiency and high-quality video and audio. MCX simplifies and accelerates the process of consolidating AV and data on a single network, rather than deploying an entirely new network.
Radian Flex Software-Based Video Wall Processing Platform
Radian Flex is an entirely software-based video wall processing platform that delivers future-proof flexibility and scalability for digital signage, corporate, education and mission-critical visualization applications. The software from Black Box makes it easy to display high-quality content from multiple sources across multiscreen display walls in any configuration. Users can add, move, resize and change content on the Radian Flex interface, and those changes are reflected in real-time on the target video wall, distributed visualization system or other display devices. Radian Flex supports an unlimited number of inputs, screens and endpoints. Users can daisy-chain monitors to display hundreds of H.264 and VNC video streams across multiple screens. Integrated SmartFrame technology ensures a quality picture and automates optimal placement of content on-screen with minimal setup. The platform’s video engine supports 4K 60-frame-per-second video up to an industry-leading resolution of more than 1 billion pixels, paving the way for future 8K resolutions and beyond.
Black Box Emerald Unified KVM Platform
At ISE 2020, Black Box will highlight its Emerald Unified KVM platform, which provides flexibility and network security essential to KVM extension and switching. The low-latency, high-performance Emerald 4K and Emerald SE transmitter-receiver pairs connect workstations with remote computers and servers over distances up to 10 kilometers over single-mode fiber, or even farther over IP, while the Emerald Remote App facilitates anywhere, anytime access without the need for additional hardware receivers. With uniquely robust capabilities for reliable extension and switching of video, audio, USB and serial signals across any number of physical and virtual servers, Emerald lowers users’ cost of ownership and helps them preserve existing IT investments.
