BEAVERTON, Oregon — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, announced that its TesiraLUX™ audio/video distribution system has been recognized with Commercial Integrator’s 2017 BEST Award in the audio/video category. The award is an annual gathering of the most outstanding products and services impacting the commercial integration industry and was announced at InfoComm 2017 held in June in Orlando, Florida.
Biamp’s TesiraLUX introduces low-latency, 4K-networked video capabilities to the Tesira® ecosystem through the addition of an AVB/TSN-enabled video encoder (TesiraLUX IDH-1) and decoder (TesiraLUX OH-1). This groundbreaking solution transports both audio and video signals over a single network through the reliability of AVB/TSN. The Tesira platform is the only network AV solution available that handles both audio and video processing, while providing integrators and system designers the tools to determine what to send over the network, enabling them to treat content types appropriately. The result is visually lossless transmissions and with the best use of the available network bandwidth. The TesiraLUX IDH-1 encoder features one HDMI port, one DisplayPort port, and two mic/line-level analog inputs. The TesiraLUX OH-1 decoder includes one HDMI port and two line-level analog outputs.
TesiraLUX supports the latest video formats, including 4096x2160 at 60-Hz, HDR, and the Rec. 2020 color space. It accepts video at up to 16-bit color depth with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling, and supports eight channels of embedded PCM audio, which can be routed and processed independently. Scalers in the encoder and decoder allow for automatic EDID management between the TesiraLUX device and the input source/output display.
By utilizing AVB/TSN, TesiraLUX guarantees a total system latency of less than two frames (33 ms at 60 Hz), including scaling, compression, and network transit. AVB/TSN bandwidth reservation capabilities, coupled with TesiraLUX’s bandwidth management tools, enable the creation of a true Networked Media System.
The Commercial Integrator BEST Award selections were judged by an unbiased panel of a dozen industry leaders, along with the editors of Commercial Integrator, with special consideration given to innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, and benefits to the installer.
