Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), a world leading company in the field of home automation and smart control, have in the past few days announced that they are now shipping their Miravue VIP-1 Video Over IP System.
RTI acquired the Miravue VIP-1 from Miravue all the way back in April but have only just now announced that their version of the system is available to integrators and end users. Back at the time of the acquisition, RTI CEO Ed McConaghay explained why the company had taken the step to bring the system into the fold:
‘Acquiring the Miravue video-over-IP solution is a key step toward our goal of providing integrators with everything they need to automate any environment.’
According to RTI, the Miravue VIP-1 System which is now shipping serves as a transmitter and receiver, helping the system compliment both residential and commercial A/V settings. The combination transmitter and receiver employs the H.264 codec to support 1080p HD video and audio formats such as Dolby Digital 5.1.
A scaler is also built in to the low latency system, to match the resolutions of connected display devices while automatically delivering stereo downmixing and lip sync adjustments.
Designed to integrate into both new construction and retrofit system environments, the RTI Miravue VIP-1 has low bandwidth requirements so that it can work with unmanaged switches as well as more expensive gigabit managed switches.
