Easy Integration

Easy Integration

The transmitter(s) and receiver(s) install directly into an existing LAN infrastructure.

Plug-and-Play Setup


There's no need to configure any IP settings (although more experienced users can do that if needed).

Extends HD or 4K Digital

Extends HD or
4K Digital Video/Audio

HD or 4K model extends HDMI digital video/audio up to 100 m between transmitter and receiver (point-to-point) using CATx cable or (4K model only) up to 30 km between transmitter and receiver over single-mode fiber cable using a standard Gigabit SFP module.


Lossless Compression and
Ultra-low Latency

Delivers lossless compression and ultra-low latency no matter what the distance or the number of screens.

Extended Display Identification Data (EDID)

Extended Display
Identification Data (EDID)

Extended display identification data (EDID) copy function results in an optimal PC-to-screen performance.

MediaCento Features

HDMI HD video to 4K UHD video over IP

The MediaCento IPX IP-based audio/video distribution solution uses existing standards-based Ethernet technology and TCP/IP protocols to unicast HDMI HD / 4K UHD video signals on your Gigabit Ethernet network. In a multicast configuration, one transmitter can drive multiple receivers with no extra network load.

Easy Integration

Transmitters and receivers install directly into your existing LAN infrastructure. There's no need to configure any IP settings or run expensive dedicated links from a back room. Better yet, being PoE-powered eliminates the need for external power supplies.

Plug-and-Play Setup

Use rotary switches to set the transmitter and receivers to the same multicast or unicast channel and all IP multicasting settings are automatically configured. Just connect your source, your display(s), and a network switch. It's ready to go!

Signals that Goes for Kilometers

The units support IGMP and packetize signals so all your HD/UHD source content can be delivered anywhere you want over Ethernet wiring. The extender transmits video up to 100 m per link, but goes even longer when additional network switches are added to the mix. Use fiber with media converters to go several kilometers, if needed.

Optimal PC-to-Screen Performance

MediaCento IPX HD/4K features an extended display identification data (EDID) copy function, which ensures that the proper video settings are maintained, and is HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Matrix Switching and Video Wall Control

Use the standalone MediaCento IPX Controller with any network switch for full flexibility including dual network and video wall support, up to 8 x 8 (64 screens). Or, build the network with our unique LPB2900-series switches with built-in basic control functionality.
