What is Zio?
Zio is an innovative family of products based on technology that offers video, audio and control distribution over an IP network. For moving large amounts of data, an IP infrastructure excels. However, distributed video sources and destinations create unique challenges for time-sensitive and time-ordered video streams. Zio's transport technologies and unique peer-to-peer architecture address these problems, while delivering exceptional user control and performance management.
How does it work?
Zio endpoints attach to a 1Gig Ethernet switch, with encoders accepting computer and video sources at resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD, and decoders feeding displays. The Zio system offers seamless switching over the IP network infrastructure. Zio endpoints can operate over both dedicated and shared networks.
Why choose Zio?
Zio is highly scalable and ideal for systems of any size – across rooms, buildings, campuses or cities. As system requirements grow, additional endpoints are easily added. Zio's flexible compression settings make it well suited to a local building LAN or even low bandwidth satellite links to remote locations. Zio is cost-effective and reliable. Dedicated and expensive servers are not required, reducing cost and vulnerability to failure.
Zio is versatile. Endpoints can provide a gateway to traditional AV distribution systems with RGB Spectrum's Linx switchers, enabling a mixture of analog and digital baseband content with IP traffic. Zio can also be integrated with RGB Spectrum's MediaWall processors for multi-screen display applications.
Zio offers exceptional user control and performance management. Simplicity and ease of use are evident throughout – but don't let the simplicity fool you – the Zio control interface allows administrators access to very advanced tools. Zio excels in the most complex environments.
With many options available, Zio systems support a wide range of technical requirements and price points making Zio the smartest choice for networked AV. Zio is slated to ship in October 2016.
