Connected Distribution appointed to distribute Xantech
Connected Distribution is pleased to announce it has been appointed as a distributor for the Xantech range of high-quality video distribution products, including its class-leading Video over IP, to bring these respected and reliable solutions to the commercial and residential installation sectors.
Xantech’s premium Video over IP (VIP) platform distributes 4K UHD HDMI video over a 1GB Network switch with a virtually latency free performance of just 1-frame. Using lossless compression technology, Xantech delivers HDMI, IR and RS-232 to lengths of up to 100m over a single CAT cable.
As with all Xantech products, ease of installation is a must and the new 4K UHD Video over IP solution can be installed in minutes without the need for any networking qualifications or the creation of complex VLANs. The easy to use wizard-based installation means a basic product configuration takes just seconds, without needing a computer or any special set up software.
The entire system is modular in design, with separate transmitters and receivers that are powered via PoE or locally, meaning installations can grow as more sources and displays are added over time. This is a huge benefit for installers, especially in large commercial situations where the number of displays is very often considerably greater than the number of sources. Using traditional HDMI matrix products in these situations results in the unnecessary purchase of source inputs that remain unused.
Further simplicity in installation comes from the built-in scaling which ensures that every source will work with any display, including 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) and HDR at 24fps available on the latest HDMI 2.0 devices. Every receiver also features a ‘daisy-chain’ capability to permit content to be mirrored across multiple displays.
The Xantech VIP products can be controlled very simply using the Advanced Control Module with a drag and drop routing operation or via any number of third-party control systems, including RTI, also distributed by Connected distribution.
Mike Bonnette, Connected Distribution’s product director says, “Xantech are the undoubted leaders in Video over IP systems and we are delighted to have been appointed as a distributor for these impressive products.” He continues, “For our customers looking for the ultimate in flexibility and ease of set up and who require the highest quality video to be routed over long distances in commercial and semi-commercial environments, VIP is the only choice. And Xantech VIP is the very best product we have seen in this category – we know our customers are going to love it.”
Roy Legget, from Xantech’s parent company, NortekSecurity & Control commented, “We are very pleased to have partnered with Connected Distribution to make the Xantech range of VIP and other HDMI distribution products available to the UK custom and commercial installation markets.” He adds, “Having known and worked with the team at Connected Distribution for many years, I am confident that the product range will be very well represented, and the customers looked after with the professionalism I have come to expect from Mike and his colleagues.”
