Inogeni, which is based in Quebec City, QC, has revealed two new products ahead of their official launch at CES 2020 next January: 4K UHD and HDBaseT to USB 3.0 converters, ideal for commercial applications, including videoconferencing.
The company, which manufactures multi-input video conferencing connectivity products, will show both the 4KXUSB3 HDMI to USB 3.0 and Magni HDBaseT to USB 3.0 converters at CES 2020, which takes place from January 7-10, 2020 in Las Vegas. They will be shown in South Hall ( booth 35824) within the Québec Ministry of Economy and Innovation exhibit.
The 4KXUSB3, 4K HDMI to USB 3.0 converter, improves the company's USB 3.0 dongle series with the addition of this new enhanced capture tool. It features a HDMI loop output, analog audio I/O, and a VISCA port for PTZ cameras. Requiring no drivers, it is a reliable and convenient tool to capture uncompressed video with audio from your HDMI equipment for recording, editing, videoconferencing, and streaming applications including soft codecs such as Zoom, WebEx, Skype, and others, says Inogeni. It supports resolutions up to UHD 4K (3,840/4,096x2,160) at 30 fps and 1,080p at 60 fps. The internal Digital Fluid technology maximizes frame rate and reduces latency with any PC.
The new MAGNI HDBaseT to USB 3.0, meanwhile, connects your HDBaseT camera up to 100 metres with a Cat5e/Cat6 cable and captures uncompressed video with audio for recording, editing, videoconferencing, and streaming applications. The MAGNI supports PoE+ power source equipment. The HDMI loop output gives you the ability to see the camera content without going to a computer. MAGNI may be used for connecting HDBaseT cameras to your video conferencing system.
"Both the Magni and 4KXUSB3 converters are highly useful tools for anyone managing a videoconferencing network or just needs to convert HDBaseT or 4K HDMI to USB 3.0," says Carl Giroux, vice president of business development for INOGENI. "Integrators and their clients have been asking for these products and we're happy to deliver products that will make their jobs easier."
Both the Magni and 4KXUSB30 converters are available to ship now. Inogeni distributes its products internationally, but they are designed and manufactured in Canada.
