JPEG 2000 4K60 4:4:4 UHD Video Over IP Encoder


The NMX-ENC-N2412A from AMX by HARMAN is a JPEG 2000 4K60 4:4:4 Encoder which is one of AMX's 4K Ultra HD Over IP product offerings. What makes the NMX-ENC-N2412A unique is that it's the first low-latency Encoder to distribute video at resolutions up to 4K60 4:4:4 over Gigabit Ethernet networks. Utilizing JPEG2000 encoding, the N2412A and N2422A encoders and decoder (N2400 Series) deliver cinema quality video with just two frames of latency. Furthermore, these products support HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, offering increased compatibility with 4K sources and displays.

The N2400 Series of encoders and decoders use the same control APIs, software, and web interfaces as the existing Networked AV products, which have been optimized to market needs as a result of years of field experience. Common applications for the NMX-ENC-N2412A is for situations where 4K60 video is popular; such as in casinos, sporting arenas, museums and other venues where high-resolution large-scale video distribution is required. The N2400 Series is also ideal for lecture halls, university campus distribution, active learning spaces, or anywhere viewers with a discerning eye will be expecting the beauty of 4K60. 

AMX NMX-ENC-N2412A Features:

  • 4K60 4:4:4 Support – The N2400 Series can be used to support today’s 4K content without modifying the color space or reducing the frame rate.
  • Operates over Gigabit Ethernet – Distribute video over cost effective Gigabit Ethernet switches using Cat5 cable already installed in a location. This also allows for greater switching scalability vs. a solution that depends on 10 GbE.
  • Low Latency – Distribute video over an IP network with just two frames of latency which is nearly imperceptible.
  • HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 Support – By incorporating HDMI2.0 and HDCP 2.2, the N2400 Series products are compatible with all the latest 4K sources and displays.
  • PoE+ Powered – The N2400 Series can operate using PoE+ power from the network switch, simplifying installation and reducing installation cost.
  • Native NetLinx – Simplifies integration with AMX control to reduce cost of installation.
