Gefen partners with Barco to provide enhanced integration with its AV solutions
Nortek Security & Control (NSC) has announced a new alignment between its signal management brand, Gefen, and Barco’s enterprise AV control and monitoring software, Overture. The aim is to make control of the entire Gefen AV over IP product line easy and intuitive via Overture platform’s interface.
“The Gefen and Barco pairing offers an unparalleled level of connectivity and control for commercial installers,” says Gefen product manager Jason Fitzgerald.
“Now, distributing and controlling AV in classrooms, huddle rooms, lecture halls and conference rooms is easier and more versatile than ever, regardless of source material or display type.”
The Gefen AV over IP solutions combine any source and display, no matter their connection capabilities. HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, VGA and audio can all coexist on a single IP network, with the ability to automatically convert analogue and digital signal formats and scale up and down from standard HD to Ultra HD, offering a new level of flexibility in any installation.
Barco Overture can maximise signal management in any installation by taking advantage of the versatile line of Gefen AV over IP products. When used with the Gefen EXT-CU-LAN matrix controller, there is a single point of contact for the Barco system to communicate with.
Users can simply integrate Barco Overture with Gefen AV over IP products and directly manage them – as both products are fully compatible with each other.
“Our new integration with Gefen further strengthens Barco’s position as the top AV monitoring and control software solution for the education and corporate space,” says Barco director of product management for Overture, Jan van Houtte.
Gefen is available in Australia through Amber Technology. Barco Overture is available from AV Distributors.
