Easy to integrate into your network.

Because the MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast components install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure, integration is easy.

The technology uses existing standards-based Ethernet technology and TCP/IP protocols, and it works in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations. Just plug in as many receivers as you need at your remote screens.

Plus, there’s no need to configure any IP settings. Simply use rotary switches to set the transmitter and receivers to the same channel and all IP multicasting settings are automatically configured; then just connect your source, your display(s), and a network switch. It’s ready to go!

For the best performance, be sure to use MediaCento IPX PoE Multicast with a Layer 2 or 3 switch that has IGMP capabilities.
