Converts HDMI video to IP for use with the VigorSwitch V1281. Can also be used point to point (without switch).
The HVE290 comes as a pair (sender and receiver) although additional receiver units are available separately too. The sender unit connects to your video source (HDMI) and to the VigorSwitch V1281 (RJ45 sockets). The receiver unit connects back to your VigorSwitch 1281 and outputs to your TV, screen or projector's HDMI input, elsewhere in your building.
The HVE290 uses a video codec designed to balance bandwidth conservation with frame rate - i.e. to reduce dropping frames in fast-moving scenes which can cause 'jerkiness', particularly on larger screens or projectors in 'panning shots'. The HVE290 also provides full HD with up to 36-bit colour to ensure you get great resolution and picture fidelity, even on a large screen and can transmit regular PCM Stereo, Dolby® surround or DTS® sources to the receivers. The HVE290 can also downscale or upscale when you're using a one-to-many configuration with screens of different resolutions (e.g. transmit a 1080P picture and display it on a 720P and 1080P screen simultaneously).
You will be able to control your source device from the screens around your building using the original Infra-red remote control if you fit the IR 'eyes' (receiver and emitter) pairs onto the HVE sender and receiver units. The IR addons may be included with your unit, depending on which model you purchase.
Each unit needs power, either from the AC/DC power supply (included) or if you have many sender units, you may prefer a multi-outlet USB power supply (of adequate power/Amps). USB DC cables are available as an optional accessory. It is very convenient to power the receiver directly from the TV's USB port however many TVs do not provide sufficient power (some larger ones do).
Our online support guides in our knowledgebase provide more setup information on using IR extenders and USB Power.
Ports on the VigorSwitch 1281 not used for video can be used for normal data networking.
