Two Cables Enter, One Cable Leaves!

Single cable solutions, am I right?  We talk about it like it’s been happening or like we were totally doing it before it was cool. But spoiler alert…you haven’t been doing it in public. 

To back up a little, let’s talk about “single cable solutions.” Fact is, I’m doing it right now at my desk.  One USB-C cable connecting my laptop to my Logi camera, Vizio display, AT2020USB mic, power, and built-in display speakers. Kind of cool, actually.  But now do that in a room with multiple displays, mics, speakers, and cameras. Oops. 

So, Now let’s usher in the Q-SYS NV-21-H, the latest solution in the NV series of video endpoints. At the table, this IS your HDMI connection, AV Bridge, and local power port. In one box. It’s also doing all of that work as a native Q-SYS software object. Configuration and routing is all done natively, integrating with the rest of the Q-SYS system!

The NV-21-HU will act as an encoder OR decoder to route video and audio anywhere in the system you’d like it and do so at 4K60 4:4:4. When used with an NV-32-H in Streaming Core Mode, though…the conference room JUST GOT INTERESTING! Want to see this demo set up at your office?  Connect with your Farm rep today!

SAVe the Future: The Farm Earns SAVe Certification

The Farm team gathered at The Farmhouse Showroom in Newark, CA to get educated on Sustainability in AV. Our team spent the day spitting out ideas where we can actually make a difference. We could do more energy-conscious control programming. We could research and recommend ethical e-waste recyclers. We could use our skills to help people that may not be able to afford them. We were empowered. To read The Farm's entire SAVe Certification Plan, please visit our website here!
