Fresh for ISE 2020, Kramer is debuting its new KDS-10 transceiver, a fully featured solution that will set the stage for next-level AV over IP installations.

Joining Kramer’s powerful AV over IP portfolio, the new KDS-10 is a high-performance  end-to-end 4K60 (4:4:4) transceiver delivers flawless streaming, exceptional flexibility and Multiview functionality, such as Picture-in-Picture and Picture-aside-Picture. KDS-10 provides extreme flexibility with its user-controlled H.264 / H.265 compression switching and multiple protocols, further extending options for AV and IT professionals.

A key attribute in AVoIP applications, the KDS-10 is equipped with H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), which uses approximately 50% less bandwidth than H.264. This video compression standard enables AV professionals to deliver 4K streaming over IP more efficiently and reliably. It is also backwards-compatible with H.264, if needed.  

This future-proof, bi-directional transceiver supports up to 3840 x 2160 picture resolution at 60 Hz frame rate. Highly versatile, the KDS-10 can be used as either an encoder or decoder, per operator selection and use case. It offers additional value with its two HDMI inputs for encoding and decoding dual 4K30 streams.

The KDS-10 can be controlled and managed via API, Kramer Network and the award-winning Kramer Control cloud-based control and management solutions, allowing for screen adjustments, remote management and remote services. It supports standard Ethernet network operation up to 1Gbit/s, making it an ideal solution for clients who want to leverage existing networks.
