The CBOX houses the system API used by MXNet Mentor and 3rd party control systems. The CBOX is POE powered and silently goes about its business of managing all things multicast and other data formats. The CBOX controls the whole Ecosystem, including audio/video switching/distributing, RS-232/USB/IR signal routing, video wall building, KVM and system management, etc.
The AC-MXNET-CBOX is capable of handling hundreds of multicast-enabled endpoints. Thanks to a robust and efficient database, complex system deployments have never been easier. Simply plug in the CBOX to an MXNet SW model ( or other 3rd party multicast-capable switch ), and let the fun begin. Next, plug in the Encoders and Decoders - and after a few minutes, all the components are ready for full configuration.
The AC-MXNET-CBOX Control Box is only one part of the MXNet Ecosystem that includes Encoders, Network Switches, Control Processors, and other various components designed to facilitate the building of a custom A/V distribution system. MXNet’s Ecosystem includes formatting such as resolution scaling, full EDID management, HDR and Dolby Vision metadata, multifaceted video walls, and includes the MXNet Mentor setup and control tool - making installations easy on the integrator, while also presenting a major WOW factor for your client.
