IPVU

The IPVU is a compact dual-channel IP-to-HDMI converter that’s perfect for displaying IP sources and a multiviewer’s IP outputs on HD and 4K UHD HDMI displays. The IPVU offers an integrated IP to HDMI gateway that can be installed on a rack shelf or mounted behind the display. It provides the missing link enabling you to view any IP source, or to connect an IP multiviewer’s output to a display.
