Vaddio’s AV Bridge MATRIX PRO Enables AV Room Solution for USB/IP Applications

Complete professional AV solution reduces the complexity of designing systems

Vaddio’s AV Bridge Matrix PRO is a complete professional AV solution designed to reduce the complexity of designing USB systems for meeting and lecture capture rooms that support multiple cameras and microphones. Based on Vaddio’s award-winning AV Bridge technology, the MATRIX PRO adds audio and video mixing functionality directly into the box.

“The challenge with designing USB systems has been the limitation of a PC and its ability to support only one camera and one microphone on a USB System Bus,” explained CEO Rob Sheeley.  “The AV Bridge Matrix PRO gives integrators the ability to add multiple cameras, microphones and other AV devices into PC-based system room design. It then manages the complex process of mixing, switching and controlling those devices into a single USB stream. We believe that this will be an easier and more cost-effective solution for our integrators who are designing lecture capture and UC conferencing systems.”

AV Bridge CONFERENCE – One of the 3 new additions to the AV Bridge family

The MATRIX PRO replaces a rack full of gear by combining a variety of capabilities:  an AV encoder with simultaneous IP and USB 2.0 streaming, a four-input seamless HD video switcher, three Quick-Connect Interfaces for Vaddio cameras, an 8 x 4 cross-point audio matrix mixer/switcher with AEC, four audio ports for Vaddio EasyUSB microphones with built-in AEC, and a web server for configuration programming, control and remote management.

HD Streaming Solution for UC and Videoconferencing Rooms with Vaddio's AV Bridge Conference

Vaddio launches the new AV Bridge Conference which provides integrators the ability to integrate soft codecs, including Skype, Cisco Jabbe and Microsoft Lync, into traditional AV designs.

Based on UVC/UAC USB standards, no special USB drivers need to be installed, and as a result, AV Bridge Conference works seamlessly with any software application running on any operating system that supports USB 2.0 devices.  Whether you want to do a Microsoft Lync video call or need to set up an audio conference, the AV Bridge Conference provides the USB connection to your AV System. What to record or sream a meeting? Use the recording and streaming software of your choice - and AV Bridge Conference will connect the audio and video sources.

"AV Bridge Conference was designed to support far-end audio for conferencing applications," explained Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio.  "Videoconferencing system designs require separated near-end audio for local speaker amplification from remote sites."

AV Bridge Conference can support selectable balanced or unbalanced audio - and selectable HDMI, RGBHV, SD or HD component video inputs.  Outputs include USB 2.0 with HD UV/UAV device support, or an Ethernet network interface for both IP control and streaming (RTSP and HLS.) Far-end audio is delivered from the AV Bridge Conference through a balanced (XLR) or unbalanced (RCA) audio input.

AV Bridge Conference makes it simple to encode, capture and stream AV content through a variety of PC Applications or Directly to the network.
