NH Milan Congress Center: distribution AV-over-IP on 5 thousand m2, 3 floors for 30 meeting rooms
Of Integrated Systems
“...the AV one, on the other hand, has been developed with Matrox Maevex 5100 Series in AV-over-IP. With this solution, we have enormously simplified the technological structure”.
"In total, there are almost 400 PoE network points dedicated to AV. The bottleneck of this type of network may consist of the switch-network point copper section; however, with a gigabit level network, this problem does not arise, thanks to the Matrox Maevex encoders/decoders that can vary the bit rate and resolution of the video signals. This is also one of the reasons why we chose Matrox; the bandwidth occupied by the HD video flow varies from 10 to 15 Mbps for each room; when all rooms are in use, the dedicated network is only occupied for 150 Mbps”.
“Personally, I was impressed by the performance of the Maevex encoders/decoders, which in practice confirmed what was written on the datasheets. This is not a common thing; in brochures, performance levels are often said to differ when tested. Without the support of Matrox, I do not believe we would have opted for the AV-over-IP solution; consistency of performance has been proven".
