The PacketAV® Duet Wallplate Encoder has been nothing short of a paradigm shift for networked AV. True convergence; a single platform to support Dante™/AES67 and Video over IP in a convenient wallplate form-factor. Building on their success and wide adoption, the next generation of PacketAV® Duet Wallplate Encoders continue to provide powerful 4K UHD Video and Dante™/AES67 Audio over a single Gigabit Ethernet port, now with built-in bi-directional Bluetooth® wireless audio connectivity and other enhanced features.

It can be easily mounted in a wall, tabletop, lectern, or floor box using a standard 2-gang US or UK back box, and connected to power (standard POE) and Ethernet using only a single category cable.

This is video for audio professionals.

Visionary’s PackeTV® and PacketAV® products can be deployed on any industry standard IP network.  They can be used on existing enterprise IP networks or a physically separate parallel network [private network] to offload traffic, using the same network protocols, methods, and devices but without intermingling of video traffic with data or voice; with equal ease of installation.

How it Works

An encoder is connected to an AV source signal [HDMI], [a camera, STB, media player, PC or Server, BluRay player, or digital signage player, etc.]. The signal is converted into a packetized network stream that’s compatible with off-the-shelf IGMP enabled Gigabit Ethernet [GbE] switches. Using existing Cat5e/6 infrastructure, users can connect Cat5e/6 to any decoder anywhere on the same GbE network. The decoder takes the IP packets received over Cat5e/6 cables, converts them back into an HDMI signal connecting directly to a display, delivering visually lossless video along with RS232 controls. Any signal from any encoder can be sent to any decoder on the same network. The signals can easily be controlled with our Vision Lite software to create different outputs on the display side; including video wall or matrix switching.

Dynamically Optimized (Adaptive) bit-rate compression CODEC w/ built-in AI
  • Visionary’s highly efficient video compression codec is a modified full frame encoding that dynamically optimizes for fine lines (computer generated graphics) or motion video by using sophisticated AI to analyze the input source content. Actively matching the level of compression to a scene by leveraging periods of low motion video content reduces the stream’s size and enhances performance – enabling, without compromising image quality, Visually Lossless transmission of computer generated graphics or full-motion video sources
  • Adjustable Video Bitrate: (50 – 200 Mbps or Auto [800Mbps max])
Enterprise Level Security

Enterprise applications demand a secure Network AV solution

  • AES Stream Encryption - The Advanced Encryption Standard, or AES, is a worldwide standard and was adopted as the standard encryption algorithm by the U.S. government for encrypting classified information
  • HTTPS Secure API - Using secure SSL/TLS communications HTTPS provides integrity that a client is communicating with the real API and receiving back authentic data. It also ensures privacy for applications and users using the API
  • 802.1x Authentication for Network access control - 802.1X provides a secure authentication mechanism for any device trying to access a network
  • SSH Network Protocol - SSH is a network protocol used to remotely access and manage a device through command line communications. The key difference between Telnet (used by other AV over IP manufacturers) and SSH is that SSH uses encryption, which means that all data transmitted over a network is secure
