▶ Application

The sports bar is the place to meet with friends, have a beer, and, of course, catch the game. Originally an American phenomenon, they are now popular wherever there's a thirst for watching multi-channel sports.

Today's sports bar needs to offer it all – great food, tasty beverages, a comfortable lounge, and of course, fantastic AV. Each element comes together to create an ambiance that keeps sports fans coming back.


▶ Challenges

 • Multiple input sources, including Media players, PCs, and TV decoder boxes

 • Numerous displays, projectors, and video walls 

 • Centralized management of all inputs  

 • High quality live video with low latency

 • Long-distance AV signal transmission and multi-room deployment

 • Easy to use interface

 • Possibility for future expansion


▶ Solution Features

 • Easy to install

Long-distance cabling :
Decoders and encoders are connected to a network switch using standard 1m-100m cables. This means that the maximum transmission distance from the source encoder to display decoder is up-to 200m. This delivers long distance transmission at very low cost, using standard Ethernet cables. 


 • Easy to use GUI

• Each feed can be previewed in a web browser making operation both accurate and intuitive 

• The GUI can run securely on any connected device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet

• Source routing can be changed in real-time: drag-and-drop thumbnails quickly to switch sources and end points  

• Create monitor groups to apply layouts with a single click

 • High quality images 

High Quality 4K Transmission :
The Lumens 4K encoder/decoder pair (OIP-D50E / OIP-D50D) delivers 4:4:4 UltraHD video at 30Hz and 4:2:0 at 60Hz. Lumens' compression technology produces visually lossless 4K that can be transmitted over standard 1-Gigabit Ethernet networks.

Ultra-low Latency : 
With minimal delay between HDMI sources and decoders, 4K video can be sent dynamically to any display and simultaneously to multiple displays.

 • Low cost and easy to upgrade 

Flexible Solution :
Traditionally, when more sources and displays are added to an AV network, new matrix switchers may be required. Lumens' System is modular so can be expanded dynamically. It offers administrators the ability to add inputs (encoders) and outputs (decoders) individually, without the need to install and configure new matrix switchers.

Cost Efficiency : 
Because the Lumens AV over IP system is fully scalable, system expansion is simply a case of adding the encoders and decoders you need. This makes the OIP system very affordable, in terms of the initial investment, the cost of expansion, installation time and ongoing system management.
