Visionary Introduces MV5 IP Multiviewer

by | Audio, Gear, Production, Video

Visionary, a leading global innovator in the AV-over-IP industry, has announced the MV5 IP Multiviewer, a high-performance scaling and windowing appliance designed to redefine the capabilities of AV-over-IP systems. The MV5 IP Multiviewer is the next generation of multiviewers, offering enhanced capabilities and seamless compatibility with Visionary’s acclaimed 5 Series AV-over-IP endpoints. Debuting at InfoComm 2024, the MV5 IP Multiviewer is now available for immediate shipping. 

Building on the robust features of its predecessor, the MV4 IP Multiviewer, the MV5 IP Multiviewer retains all the advanced functionalities that users have come to expect, with an exciting new upgrade: the ability to output 4K60 4:4:4 video. This significant enhancement ensures the highest quality video output, meeting the demands of modern AV applications with unparalleled clarity and precision.

The MV5 IP Multiviewer supports a variety of default presets, such as quad view, side-by-side, full screen and picture-in-picture, or user-defined configurations. The MV5 IP Multiviewer boasts zero frame loss during window and video transitions, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted playback. The combined output video can be encoded into a single stream and sent to one or more PacketAV Matrix 5 Series Decoders at resolutions up to 4K60 4:4:4. Additionally, users can select audio from any of the four sources for playback, regardless of the currently displayed video, enhancing the auditory experience.

“We are excited to unveil the MV5 IP Multiviewer,” said Scott Freshman, chief operating officer for Visionary. “The MV5 IP Multiviewer is compatible with our 5 Series – part of the award-winning PacketAV family. Our goal was to build upon the 5 Series and provide a solution that offers superior flexibility and performance, meeting the demanding needs of today’s AV environments. The MV5 IP Multiviewer delivers on that promise, providing users with an unmatched combination of scalability, quality, and ease of use.”

The MV5 IP Multiviewer, which is now shipping, is the perfect solution for commercial venues, both large and small, that need to monitor or display multiple sources at once. One of the standout benefits of the MV5 IP Multiviewer, owing to its network-based design, is its unparalleled flexibility in installation. Unlike traditional multiviewers, the MV5 IP Multiviewer does not need to be physically close to the source devices or displays. Instead, it can be conveniently installed in a rack, centralizing your AV equipment, and reducing clutter. This flexibility not only simplifies installation but also enhances system reliability and maintenance.
