PureStream HDMI and USB KVM over IP transmitter/encoder
Note: Receiver (decoder) units are purchased separately
PureStream VIP (video over IP) product line offers feature-rich, easy to operate solutions to manage the distribution of audio, video and more over standard IP networks. PureLink understands that the implementation of traditional A/V has added complexity when merged with IT. PureStream VIP solutions address these issues by combining reliable hardware with simplified setup, discovery, and operation.
VIP-200 series HDMI and USB/KVM over IP extension system allows users to distribute video, audio, RS-232, infrared (IR), USB keyboard/mouse and USB peripherals over an IP network. Local and remote units can be connected together for point-to-point extension over distances up to 590 feet, as well as a point-to-many, many to point, and matrix connectivity with the assistance of VPX IP video management software (purchased separately).
VIP-200H Tx transmitter/encoder module connects to the source-device for point-to-point extension, one-to-many or many-to-one distribution, and matrix switching of multiple devices over IP networks with support for HDMI video, USB, RS-232, IR, and bi-directional audio.
VIP-200 IP video distribution and matrix switching capabilities via IP network enables the easy setup and configuration of HD video, audio, and USB (KVM) signals over IP networks using PureLink's proprietary PureStreamX codec. Transmitter (encoder) and receiver (decoder) modules can extend signals up to 590 feet (180m) point-to-point or to/from a network switch. Together with the revolutionary VPX IP video management software (purchased separately), VIP-200 offers multi-format hardware options and an intuitive web based UI application to deliver a powerful and easy to install IP video distribution system.
Four products in one
VIP-200 series allows point to point, point to many, many to point, and many to many configurations:
• Point to point : 590 feet KVM extender
• Distribution : one transmitter to 154+ receivers
• Switching : up to 100 transmitters to one receiver
• Matrix : up to 100 transmitters to 154+ receivers
VIP200 series is set to work out of the box as a point to point, or point to many system, no configuration is necessary. For point to many configurations, simply plug them together through a network switch using CAT-5e or better cable. VIP-200 series can work out of the box this way because it employs its own Auto IP addressing method.
Using VIP-200's Auto IP assignment method provides the easiest and fastest setup. There may be applications where you want to use a network switch that either provides DHCP addressing where the switch assigns all devices an IP address, or manual addressing where you set the IP addresses of the devices.
Because transmitters create continuous streaming traffic of video on the network, it is recommended when possible to create your IP video network independent of your data network. Use of gigabit switches with jumbo frame and IGMP support will create the most appropriate scenario for both independent IP video networks, and cases where IP video systems are included within your data network.
Three modes of addressing
• Auto IP addressing (recommended) - VIP-200 system default configuration provides automatic IP addressing. The Auto IP method provides instant and easy setup and operation of VIP-200 devices when a specific manual IP address method is not required, and DHCP is not required.
• Manual IP addressing - VIP-200 device IP addresses can be configured manually. Using PureLink simple software application (iCON VIP Device Manager) to identify the devices Auto IP address, you can then access their built in web page interface to change the devices to Manual IP mode. Manual IP addressing is utilized when the network is not DHCP, and the Auto IP range 169.254.xxx.xxx does not work with the current network, or the intended design. These settings are normally done prior to adding on to a network.
• DHCP addressing - VIP-200 device IP addresses can be configured to accept IP addresses using DHCP. Using PureLink simple software application to identify the devices, you can then access their built in web page interface to change the devices to DHCP IP mode.
