The popularity of streamed content has mirrored the evolution of
video playback technology and the increasing accessibility to data
and video content available from various computing, production and
AV presentation systems.
The Extron PURE3 Codec
The PURE3 codec was developed for use in IP streaming solutions
to deliver performance that could not be achieved using other video
compression technologies. It maintains very high image quality, low
latency, highly efficient bit rates, and is highly immune to network
errors. Alternative compression technologies typically sacrifice one
or more of the qualities delivered by the PURE3 codec.

Highly Efficient Compression
The PURE3 codec uses a highly efficient compression method that
exploits the visual perception characteristics of the human eye to
optimize compression efficiency. An array of compression controls
are available to fine-tune the degree and nature of compression,
optimizing for target bit rate and application requirements.
Advanced Error Concealment
Real-world, switched IP networks are prone to unpredictable bit
errors, jitter, and out-of-order or dropped data packets. The PURE3
codec incorporates error concealment that ensures robust picture
delivery. It maintains stable video imagery under heavy packet loss
and errors are rarely noticeable, as typically only a small portion of
the image is briefly affected.

HDCP-Compliant Streaming
Today, many AV systems use completely digital processing and switching architectures. Use of just one HDCP-encrypted source such as
a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, or a PC with an HDMI output can force a requirement for full HDCP-compliance. This system includes an
Extron MGP 464 Pro Multi-Window Processor, which combines common AV source signals, including a Blu-ray player, on a single display
in a board room. A VN-Matrix 250 encoder streams audio and HDCP-encrypted video from the MPG 464 Pro to VN‑Matrix 250 decoders
in meeting rooms with HDCP-compliant displays. An Extron TLP 1000 TV in the boardroom selects multiple display configurations from the
MGP 464 Pro and recalls streaming preset configurations from the VN-Matrix Enterprise Controller, which determines which meeting rooms
can view the presentation.

Virtual Switching Systems
VN‑Matrix virtual switching systems turn IP networks into a real-time AV distribution systems, routing sources from encoders to decoders.
Used on LANs or WANs, they can distribute AV content to flexible locations over great distances. VN‑Matrix 250 encoders accept RGB
analog, DVI, or HDMI signals from video or computer-video sources at resolutions from 640x480 to 1920x1200, or 2048x1080p and stream
them to VN‑Matrix 250 decoders. HDMI embedded audio and analog audio formats are supported, and audio streams can breakaway from
their associated video stream. Video sources that are not HDCP-encrypted can be recorded and played back from VNR 100 recorder units
and all encoder and decoder configurations, recording, and real-time streaming connections are managed by VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller.
Networked control systems such as the Extron TLP 1000 TV and IPL 250 Control processor provide a control interface that can be used to
recall programmed preset configurations and make streaming connections that are managed by the VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller.

Live HD-SDI VIDEO TRANSPORT USING VN-MATRIX 325
An enterprise network within a corporate or higher education campus can provide the infrastructure to deliver video to a production studio
when dedicated coax or fiber connections are impractical to install or stage temporarily. Audio and video can be transported great distances
across a large campus or even farther using VN‑Matrix 325. In this application, a VN‑Matrix 325 codec is permanently installed in a production
studio to connect production or recording equipment to real time camera feeds located at various points across the campus. VN‑Matrix 325
codecs configured to encode can be placed at permanent sites regularly used for public press conferences or interviews and other
VN‑Matrix 325 codecs can be deployed temporarily in locations to deliver live event video, such as a college football game, promotion, or
other activities. Where required, VLANs can be configured on the enterprise network to segment the video bandwidth from data and
voice traffic.

Virtual Switching Systems – Videowall Magnifications
VN‑Matrix virtual switching systems frequently manage large numbers of AV sources, and videowalls are ideal for presenting them at large,
magnified sizes or on individual screens. VN‑Matrix 250 decoders can produce a videowall system without use of an external processor,
scaling their output to match the native resolution of a connected display. VNE 250 decoders can scale and magnify source streams and
PURE3® stream synchronizing technology along with the genlock connection on VN-Matrix 250 decoders ensures that the video outputs
remain stable and synchronized as various video sources are presented. VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller is the central control point for
managing VN‑Matrix systems. Presets for streaming connections saved on the VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller can be programmed to be
easily recalled by users from an AV control system.

VNM Enterprise Controller
VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller
The VNM Enterprise Controller is a dedicated controller for VN‑Matrix® systems. The VNM Enterprise Controller simplifies management of large VN‑Matrix deployments, providing the
ability to configure and dynamically control one or many VN‑Matrix devices from a single user interface.
Every VN‑Matrix device in a system can be accessed and configured using a simple, embedded web interface. The standard embedded web interface is useful for configuring smaller
systems limited to a few units or systems that will be left in a fixed operational state. VNM Enterprise Controller provides the greater processing capacity required to efficiently manage,
configure, and dynamically control large VN‑Matrix systems. VNM Enterprise Controller allows streaming and recording system presets to be created that can be quickly recalled from
an AV control system. Each preset captures all VN-Matrix device settings and defines specific streaming connection and recording actions. Recall of various streaming and recording
presets greatly simplifies management and control of VN‑Matrix systems.
The VNM Enterprise Controller’s embedded web interface also allows users to quickly organize and sort all devices in a system based on different properties such as: unit status or type,
operating mode, source, controller, or firmware version. VN‑Matrix devices can be selected in groups, and common configuration properties can be applied to all devices. Firmware can
also be uploaded to all devices or a group of devices in one action. Multiple VNM Enterprise Controllers can be applied in VN‑Matrix systems, providing control over the entire system or
independent clusters of VN‑Matrix devices.
Two VNM Enterprise Controller units can be configured to operate together as a redundant system for mission-critical applications. One unit is configured as a primary unit, and the other
as a secondary unit. System data is continuously synchronized between the redundant pair. The secondary unit continually monitors the primary unit’s system health and seamlessly
takes control if required. Control is automatically returned to the primary unit if required, maintaining transparent communications and control over the VN‑Matrix system.
The VN‑Matrix Enterprise Controller is required when:
•
•
•
•
•
•
More than 10 VN‑Matrix units are configured into a system
The system includes VN-Matrix recording devices or VNS 104 Multi-Stream Decoding Software
Preset streaming and recording configurations must be prepared and recalled
A system of VN‑Matrix units will be dynamically controlled in a virtual switching solution that is managed from an AV control system
Clusters of VN‑Matrix units must be managed independently and as one large system
Redundant control is required for the system
