Marshall Adds New NETGEAR Pro AV Network Switches To Product Lineup

by | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Marshall Electronics has partnered with NETGEAR to offer three of the company’s M4250 network switches for pro AV applications, with the PoE+/PoE++ capabilities of the switchers offering a good fit with Marshall’s IP cameras and controllers to foster easier set up.

The three NETGEAR models that are part of the collaboration currently include the M4250-10G2XF-PoE+, M4250-10G2XF-PoE++ and M4250-26G4F-PoE++, with the intention to expand the partnership by adding additional SKUs in the future.

“Anytime Marshall has a chance to align itself with a company that manufactures game-changing products, like NETGEAR, is a big win,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras, Marshall Electronics. “We look forward to providing our customers with NETGEAR’s switches alongside our IP cameras and controllers, with verification and endorsement by NETGEAR. This collaborative partnership guarantees compatibility, giving installers the assurance they need for a successful setup. Marshall customers will also gain access to NETGEAR’s Pro AV Design Engineering team and a lifetime warranty on NETGEAR products. In addition, Marshall can now offer ultra-competitive pricing to integrators and local dealers on Pro AV models required for IP network projects.”

NETGEAR’s AV Line of M4250 switches maintain the same out-of-the-box AV functionality found on the popular M4300 and M4500 switches. Deploying multicast AV over IP networks with the M4250 switches is a “plug-in and turn-on” operation. The new AV interface of the M4250 switch presents the common AV controls with user-selectable profiles up front, helping to ensure the settings are correct for specific audio or video applications.

Further, the switches are designed for clean integration with traditional rack-mounted AV equipment. The black enclosure provides port and activity status on the front panel, with all power and network cabling organized on the rear panel. The switches can also be reverse mounted in an AV rack. Additional options for mounting the switch outside a rack, such as VESA mounts, are built into the enclosure.

“We look forward to this collaboration with Marshall Electronics to provide its customers with our NETGEAR switches,” says Laurent Masia, Director of Product Line Management for Managed Switches, NETGEAR. “The M4250 AV Line has unique capabilities including NETGEAR IGMP Plus™ to provide Marshall IP cameras with effortless video capabilities. When using Dante or AVB in an audio deployment, customers can trust that NETGEAR’s AV Line switches are designed to seamlessly integrate into your solution.”

Marshall’s complete line of IP cameras and controllers are compatible with the NETGEAR M4250 line, including its CV605-series, CV620-series, CV630-series, CV730-series, CV420-30X-series, CV355-30X-series and its VS-PTC-IP controller.
