Media over IP (MoIP) is the latest in modern ways to do AV distribution. While it still maybe slightly cost prohibitive for some, it does seem to be proving itself a great solution for what would normally be more complex and expensive matrix switching implementations.
MoIP simply uses your network as the backbone, 4K Ultra HD content can be sent from any number of sources to any number of displays to create a completely scalable solution. Great for businesses and homes alike.
Gone are the days of head-scratching system design, next-level network know-how and confusing configurations. MoIP is designed remove all that complexity, requiring only a Layer 2 PoE switch. Simple setup and intuitive user-interfaces enable you to go from power-on to picture in 5 minutes or less.
With MoIP, legacy HDCP/EDID issues are eliminated. Each source is encoded, visually lossless, at the highest quality possible. Then at each display, the signal is decoded from the network and scaled to the desired resolution (ex. 1080p or 4K UHD). Built-in scaling in each receiver means that mixed 1080p/4K systems are no longer a problem, plus pass-through of all audio formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are fully supported.
SERVICING AND SETUP
Service and setup of MoIP in general is very easy in most cases, but with premium solutions from brands like Binary it can be very simple, you can also get remote management support for installers. Systems with OvrC also quicken initial setup by auto-discovering the controller, plus it provides unparalleled troubleshooting tools like real-time video screenshots.
MoIP solutions also allow you to fit, scale, and upgrade the solution to match your specific needs even over time. Instead of replacing the entire system, you can simply purchase new transmitters or receivers when adding sources or displays.
