AV over IP provides the ability to create a Virtual Matrix allowing unlimited flexibility to control & expand the Audio & Video distribution of your Business or Home.

We have been using AV over IP for a number of years now for both Commercial and Residential projects. AV over IP allows our design team unlimited flexibility to provide a system tailored to the needs of our clients with respect to both functionality & cost.

A great example of this is illustrated in the article “MUSEUM MATRIX – AV over IP modernizes museum AV distribution” in the February 2024 edition of Sound & Video Contractor. The article references Just Add Power’s Video Over IP platform used to provide the the ability to route any AV Source (Set Top Box, Roku, Apple TV, Cameras, Laptops, Wall Plates, etc.) to any display (Flat Panel TV, Projector, etc.) and listening area (Bar, Banquet Room, Entrance Hall, Game Room, Living Room, Kitchen, Theater, etc.).

We delivered a similar system, together with our sister company Smart Wire LLC, for Gaelic Park Chicago to manage their banquet facility consisting of 7 banquet rooms that can be easily combined by staff to accommodate small and facility-wide events. Just Add Power devices were used to drive video content to a total of 8 4k laser projectors fed by a combination of local Blue Ray players, Wall Plates for Laptop Computers and other AV devices, and centrally located Set Top Boxes. Audio was mixed using a digital 8×8 Audio Matrix Mixer routed throughout the Just Add Power matrix to digital amplifiers powering speakers in the banquet areas. A Luxul Level L2/L3 Managed Switch and router was used to steer the matrix. The entire system is controlled by an RTI Control Processor. Staff can configure the system very quickly for multiple events using a custom RTI program we designed along with 4 RTI Touch Screens in key banquet rooms. Most operations can be completed using only the Main page on the Touch Screens. Other pages are available to adjust audio levels and control other sources if needed. A set of Help pages is provided as a quick refresher for staff when needed.

The AV over IP Virtual Matrix gives us the flexibility to expand a system when our customer needs change due to expansion or facility changes.
