With essentially no limitation on project size, the new ultra-flexible 1080p transmitter and receiver pair offer unrivalled installation opportunities.

The Blustream Contractor HD Video over IP distribution platform delivers AV and control signals over a 1Gb network.

The IP50HD-TX 1080p HDMI transmitter and the IP50HD-RX 1080p HDMI video scaling receiver use H.265 compression technology to deliver HDMI, as well as bidirectional IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM up to 100 meters over a standard network architecture. The transmitter includes a HDMI loop-out for cascading to multiple devices. Both devices can be powered via PoE from the network switch or locally should the switch not support PoE.
