Sonnet Announces Echo 13 Triple 4K Display Dock
What's New: Sonnet Technologies today announced the Echo™ 13 Triple 4K Display Dock, the latest offering in the company's popular Echo family of docking stations. The DisplayLink® certified Echo 13 provides simultaneous support for three 4K @60Hz displays and includes three DisplayPort® 1.2 ports, three HDMI 2.0 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type-C® Computer/Charging port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type-C 20-watt Charging port, four USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps) Type A ports, an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a 3.5 mm microphone jack, and an SD™ card slot. The Sonnet dock is compatible with Thunderbolt™ 4, Thunderbolt 3, USB4®, and USB-C® (Alt Mode DP) ports on Mac® (M1/M2 and Intel®), Windows®, and Chromebook™ computers. What It Does: Docking stations provide users with a convenient central location to connect multiple computer peripherals — such as input devices, storage devices, headphones, cell phones, etc. — instead of directly to their computer. The Sonnet Echo 13 Triple 4K Display Dock connects all of those peripheral devices — plus up to three DisplayPort or HDMI (or a mix of both) displays —through a USB-C cable (which also supports laptop computer charging with up to 100 watts of power). Why It's Important: Many recent laptop computers — including the latest Apple® MacBook Air® models — include fewer peripheral ports and port types than those of the past, some with as few as two ports. With one of those ports sometimes also used for charging, the number and type of devices (including external displays) that can be plugged in directly is very limited. Additionally, the relatively small screen sizes of laptop computers are limiting, especially when a user runs multiple applications — or has multiple application windows open at the same time — and requires more workspace. The Echo 13 Triple 4K Display Dock overcomes these limitations by connecting three external displays plus seven other peripheral devices, charging the computer, supporting wired network connectivity, and reading SD memory cards, linking them all to a user's computer through a single cable. How It's Distinctive: The Echo 13 Triple 4K Display Dock includes several distinctive features: Simultaneous Support for Three 4K @60Hz Displays, Even for M1 and M2 Series Mac Computers Some competing multi-display docks only support slower 30Hz refresh rates. Some only support a 60Hz refresh rate on one connected display and 30Hz refresh rates on the others. Some offer 4K display support on only one port, while others only offer 1080p (HD) display support for all connected displays. Some support only Windows computers. The Echo 13 dock simultaneously supports three 4K (or lower resolutions such as 1080p) @60Hz displays — HDMI or DisplayPort (DP) or a mix of both — even when used with a MacBook Air computer (which natively supports only one external display). Native Support for One Display; Second and Third Displays Supported via DisplayLink® Technology The Echo 13 dock's display connections are segregated into three pairs, with one HDMI and one DP (DisplayPort) port per pair. The first pair supports either type of display natively, while the second and third pairs use technology built into the Echo 13 dock to each support a single display. Rear Panel Computer/Charging (10Gbps USB) Port The rear-mounted computer interface/charging port fulfills a frequent customer request, and provides up to 100W of power to charge laptops. Front Panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type-C 20W Charging Port This port is USB Type-C Charging–compliant; users may fast-charge iOS® devices (and other devices that charge via USB) connected to this port. When You Can Get It: The Echo 13 Triple 4K Display Dock (part number ECHO-DK3M-TB) is available now from Sonnet and its worldwide distribution and reseller partners at the suggested retail price of $239.99.

This breakthrough not only saves valuable space but also significantly reduces power consumption and hardware costs associated with video wall controllers. Proven video wall ecosystem LUMA Pro Series graphics cards work seamlessly with Matrox Video's complete display wall portfolio. OEMs and system integrators can pair LUMA Pro with Matrox Mura IPX capture and IP encode/decode cards for multi-channel 4K and full HD capture with advanced HDCP functionality to capture and display content-protected sources — including set-top boxes, Blu-ray Disc and media players, and video game consoles. LUMA Pro can also be combined with Matrox QuadHead2Go™ multimonitor controllers to create ultra-large-scale configurations of up to 64 1920x1080p60 screens. LUMA Pro's built-in frame-lock capability, coupled with Joined Mode in Matrox PowerDesk™ software, makes it possible to create a single canvas easily using multiple cards that act as one. In this way, the video application can take advantage of a large display space created with multiple GPU cards. Custom control LUMA Pro includes the robust Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software. Users can select from a variety of advanced tools — including Stretched or Independent desktops, Clone Mode, Pivot Mode, Bezel Management, Edge Overlap, Joined Mode, and more — to easily configure and customize multidisplay setups. Meanwhile, the feature-rich Matrox MuraControl video wall management software provides an intuitive platform to manage video wall sources and layouts, either locally or remotely and in real time. Matrox Video's video wall APIs, SDKs, and libraries are also available for developers and AV installers interested in creating custom control functions and applications.

Just Add Power Blazes the AV-Over-IP Trail at InfoComm 2023
Just Add Power, a leader in AV-over-IP distribution, is set to showcase its latest distributed AV solutions in Booth 1725 at InfoComm 2023 in Orlando, Florida, June 14-16. Integrators will see the latest addition to the company's award-winning 4K60 MaxColorTM Series, the MaxColor 2 transmitter and receiver. Building on the innovation introduced with the MaxColor 1 4K UHD distribution platform, the new solution adds KVM support and a fiber port connect alongside native 4K60Hz in and out. "Our first MaxColor Series has become the go-to solution for integrators to cost-effectively and reliably distribute UHD over IP — and now, they have another option that will support the most robust applications," said Taft Stricklin, chief sales officer at Just Add Power. "Our MaxColor 2 is a powerhouse. It distributes 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit color video and with the flexibility of using fiber or copper cable over the network it can suit almost any project. We'll also share some information about future MaxColor 2 products coming later in the year and plug you into training that will take all the stress out of AV over IP." In the booth, Just Add Power's MaxColor Series 2 will be shown. Because it can distribute 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit color video over a 1GB managed network using existing Cat X (Cat 5e minimum) cable, or over 10G fiber cable, integrators can use the cable that best fits their projects. It also boasts a USB-C port, supporting, for example, a USB web camera signal over IP. With the new Audio Return Channel feature from Just Add Power, installers can easily send audio from a TV connected to a MaxColor 2 receiver across the network to another MaxColor 2 receiver — connected to an audio-video receiver or another ARC-enabled amplifier — making project design even easier and more flexible. The MaxColor Series 1 and 2 transmitters and receivers provide integrators with an affordable and scalable 4K UHD distribution platform to support today's 4K source content with high frame rates natively over existing network infrastructures. MaxColor also offers deep-color and 4:4:4 chroma support to ensure that what is seen on the screen matches the output of the source with no subsampling or downscaling. The series delivers zero detectable latency, instant and seamless switching, 4K up-and-down scaling, and HDR management while supporting all lossless audio formats and HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision for the best viewing experience. Additional features include image pop, push, pull, and integrated control. Just Add Power will also lead its manufacturer training, "Stress-free AV Over IP," on June 15 at 11 a.m. in Room W310AB. The session will share why AV-over-IP solutions are often the best option to meet customers' demands. Integrators will learn how to design and install those systems without breaking a sweat! Taught by Just Add Power's Jeff Terzo, vice president of global business development, and Eric Martin, director of training, this lively session will first focus on designing a system and then follow up with hands-on demonstrations of setting up and configuring a system. Attendees will be eligible to earn one RU toward CTS, CTS-D, or CTS-I certifications. More information on Just Add Power and its products is available at www.justaddpower.com

Video technology innovator Matrox Video today announced a partnership with Danish video surveillance equipment manufacturer Ernitec to develop a video wall offering, which will be sold exclusively through Ernitec's European distributor, EET Group, alongside the rest of Ernitec's workstations and servers. The collaboration was a natural fit considering EET already represents the Matrox Video product range. With a Matrox Video/Ernitec video wall offering, EET's sales team can cater to full-service pro AV system integrators and resellers with an additional, ready-to-go video wall package. The flexibility of Matrox's video wall products presents many new market opportunities for EET and for Matrox Video. Like Ernitec's video surveillance server range, the Matrox Video/Ernitec solution offers a modular approach to building video walls on demand — whether someone needs a small, four-display wall with simple layout management or a large wall that can capture incoming signals from various different sources. Matrox Video's use of nonproprietary IP-encoding/decoding standards enables AV-over-IP RTSP and SRT streaming, which makes it possible to display any video source at any destination. "With these new video wall solutions, we can take advantage of tremendous growth opportunities. EET sales staff and integrators will be able to offer a technically complex solution in a simplified, tested, and certified way," said Katrin Kerber, EET account manager for Matrox Video. "A lot of pro AV resellers would love to offer video walls to their customers but are often hesitant because of the potential technical challenges with computer hardware. Ernitec is an expert on computer hardware!" "Our collaboration with Matrox Video means Ernitec can provide new video wall servers out of the box to solve video wall challenges," said Lars Ritt Berthelsen, head of Ernitec. "Our Danish production of servers enable us to customize Matrox's video wall solutions uniquely to the needs of each project. Our strong competencies together give not only the pro AV but also the security industry some unique opportunities to solve the often-heavy video wall tasks in an intuitive and tailor-made way."
