The AMX by HARMAN N7142 Presentation Switcher Makes Its U.S. Debut at InfoComm 2017
All-in-one HDMI and VGA presentation switcher simplifies 4K video distribution, enabling AV professionals to instantly deliver ultra high-resolution content over a simple network connection
HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today presented the AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher at the 2017 InfoComm show, marking the presentation switcher’s US debut.
As the first all-in-one presentation switcher to incorporate low-latency Networked AV video distribution, the AMX N7142 enables AV and IT teams that support active learning environments to achieve efficient and scalable 4K video distribution for lectures across campus and overflow classroom applications.
“The AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher is incredibly flexible and simple to integrate on campus, allowing educators to reach students faster and more effectively than ever before,” said Andy Whitehead, General Manager Networked AV, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “When presenting to students in overflow classrooms, the AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher can deliver gorgeous 4K video over campus networks in an instant. It will also have an incredible impact on the AV and IT professionals who design and support these systems, and we’re excited for those teams to learn more this week at InfoComm.”
The N7142 Presentation Switcher features a comprehensive I/O designed to deliver top-quality audio and video in classroom and small conference room applications. The N7142 Presentation Switcher distributes UHD content from the latest 4K sources to most modern displays, with four 4K60 HDMI 2.0 and two VGA inputs that can be independently switched between two HDMI 2.0 outputs. Each output has a mirrored HDMI port for connecting to an additional display, encoder card, or other video distribution equipment. Two available Networked AV slots and an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch make distributing classroom presentations to overflow seating as easy and immediate as a single LAN connection.
In addition to audio from the HDMI inputs, the all-in-one presentation switcher supports multiple high-quality audio sources with powerful built-in DSP and a 60W stereo amplifier. The N7142 Presentation Switcher includes two microphone inputs with phantom power, as well as six independent stereo inputs that can be used to incorporate different audio sources into presentations, including digital devices like smartphones or tablets.The audio amplifier can also operate in 4Ω/8Ω, 70V, or 100V modes via a user-selectable switch, making it easy to integrate the N7142 Presentation Switcher with existing AV infrastructures.
The N7142 Presentation Switcher features an intuitive web interface that makes it easy to configure, control and use. Instead of requiring an expensive auxiliary control system, educators and presenters can quickly select inputs using straight forward front-panel controls. Because the N7142 Presentation Switcher has Panel Builder on board, the video switcher can be controlled from a mobile device from anywhere in the room without loading an app.
The AMX N7142 Presentation Switcher is available in two configurations: the NMX-PRS-N7142 and the NMX-PRS-N7142-23, which adds an AMX N2312 Encoder and an AMX N2322 Decoder to the base configuration. Both solutions offer a solid, cost-effective foundation for delivering full-quality UHD content to next-generation active learning environments.
