The N7142 is the first presentation switcher to incorporate low-latency Networked AV video distribution. It has six local inputs, two outputs, and two available slots for any of our new and existing networked AV cards to support the best codec for the application.
The four 4K60 HDMI inputs and two VGA inputs, can be independently switched between two HDMI outputs (one scaled, one unscaled). Each of the two outputs has a mirrored HDMI port so that the output can be sent to an encoder card, a second display, or other video distribution equipment.
The N7142 also has extensive audio support, with a built-in DSP and 60W stereo amplifier capable of operating in 4Ω/8Ω, 70V, or 100V modes. In addition to audio from the HDMI inputs, the N7142 has six independent balanced stereo inputs and two independent microphone inputs with phantom power.
Two models of the N7142 will be offered. The NMX-PRS-N7142 is the base presentation switcher, with two available Networked AV slots that can be populated with encoder and decoder cards as required by the application. The NMX-PRS-N7142-23 is an identical presentation switcher, prepopulated with one N2312 encoder card and one N2322 decoder card, making it perfect for cost-sensitive 4K video distribution applications.
