Bring Collaboration Spaces to the Next Level

The UCX-4x2-HC30D universal switcher enhances and extends the possibilities of a meeting room and allows meeting participants to easily use their own devices such as laptops, and preferred video conference platforms while also to utilize the available assets of the meeting space, just like the HDMI displays, room cameras and other USB peripherals.

Exploit the Possibilities of USB connectivity

The device utilizes the USB-C connectivity for a simplified transmission of 4K video, audio, control signals and power, and allows data speeds of up to 5 Gbps under the USB 3.1 Gen1 and allowing video resolution capabilities up to 4K@60Hz at 4:4:4.

Devices such as laptops that do not come with USB-C connectivity can also be connected quickly and easily, using a combination of HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen1 connections without compromising on either video resolution or data speeds.

The device is designed to be a centerpiece of any collaboration space, and can be connected to four USB peripherals via USB-A type connectors.

The device allows up to four hosts to be connected to the system, and also ensures quick and easy switching between these hosts, making this universal switcher a perfect fit for smaller meeting areas, involving 6-12 people.

Additional Features and Capabilities

Automated room control features are also included through GPIO ports, besides of RS-232 and occupancy sensor connectivity.

The switcher also thrives when it comes to audio capabilities, offering analog audio de-embedding feature as well as support for DANTE/AES67 network connection to send DANTE/AES67 audio stream directly to a dedicated audio system.

Security is always a key concern in the corporate world, therefore our engineers ensured that the UCX-4x2-HC30D adhere to the strictest security standards.

Secure corporate Ethernet interfaces ensure secure device control and configuration under the SSH, SSL and HTTPS standards, whilst the device can also be securely connected to a closed network of room control devices such as wall panels, or routed to the corporate system for additional control options, all via separate Ethernet layers.

The Taurus UCX offers noiseless operation in most environments where conditions are considered regular, just like in a meeting room where temperatures do not exceed the low 20s in Celsius or about 70-75 in Fahrenheit. The built-in fan is designed to operate only if the device is installed in a cabinet or other environment with unsufficient air-flow. We specified a maximum of 30dBA noise level for our ventilation system in a meeting room, to comply with the NC-30 és NR 30 standards.

In today’s collaboration environments, it is key that the technology offers flexible and versatile ways for participants to unlock the full potential of a collaboration space and to not be limited by the default options offered by their meeting rooms.

The Taurus UCX product family is Lightware’s ground-breaking innovation offered for the increasingly growing demand for cutting-edge solutions in the world of Unified Communications.
