The Vaddio™ AV Bridge CONFERENCE is a room based HD Media Streaming solution enabling IP or USB streaming. Like the original AV Bridge, it's an appliance that "bridges" the room's analog audio and video into a computer (PC or Mac) for UC applications, but with one important distinction. The AV Bridge CONFERENCE has been designed as an HD Encoder with 2-way analog audio to send the near-end audio to the far-end and return the far-end audio to the room's pro mixer with AEC.
The AV Bridge CONFERENCE offers a flexible A/V interface that is controllable with an embedded web server and the current settings are viewable from the front panel menu system. It accepts a multitude of video input resolutions from standard definition composite video (480i/NTSC and 576i/PAL) all the way up to HD 1080p/60 in HDMI and YPbPr, including the most relevant wide-screen VESA type PC resolutions (RGBHV or DVI). The USB streaming functions using MJPEG (Motion JPEG) and standard UVC (Universal Video Class) with UAC (Universal Audio Class) drivers eliminate the need for installation of custom software drivers on the Host PC. The IP streaming uses RTSP or HLS (Apple's variant on HTTP streaming) and encodes H.264 video with AAC Audio. The Ethernet port also provides access to internal web pages for control, setup, and updating the software. Use the AV Bridge CONFERENCE in UC conferencing applications to "bridge" video and audio signals into a PC or retrofit existing conference rooms by simply plugging a USB cable into a Host PC or connecting to an IP network. The AV Bridge CONFERENCE supports high definition encoding of audio and video sources, producing superior quality results at the fraction of the cost of other similar products. It seamlessly integrates with Vaddio's HD cameras, presentation systems, video mixing consoles, and other pro audio products with AEC. The AV Bridge CONFERENCE is an unsurpassable value due to its ease of use, flexibility, and plug & play functionality.
