The Lindy 4K30 HDMI & USB over IP system is a powerful solution for creating a wide range of bespoke, distributed AV and KVM installations. The system comprises Encoder (No. 38396) and Decoder (No. 38397) modules and a separate Controller module (No. 38395).

Please note: All modules are sold separately so you can build and scale according to your requirements.

One HDMI source, such as a PC or Media Player, connects to a single Encoder module; one HDMI display connects to a single Decoder module (No. 38397). Multiple Encoders and Decoders can be combined for a variety of multicast distribution options. The controller module is used to manage the full installation and direct the multiple sources to the multiple displays giving maximum creative freedom and customisation options. All the modules can be connected to a 1G managed switch to create a network of connected devices.

Additionally, the system supports USB KVM control access for each connected module, so connected PCs at the Encoder end can be controlled by KVM consoles at the remote Decoder end. 

As well as single display options, combining multiple Decoders and their connected displays allows the user to create impressive video wall and matrix solutions. 

This extender system provides JPEG2000 main stream and H.264/H265 codec secondary stream which supports API commands to achieve flexible configurations including from third party control apps. 

The system requires a layer3 1G managed network switch supporting IGMP snooping and 8K Jumbo frame. With the PoE function it is also possible to power the unit without a PSU.
