San Jose, CA – July 14, 2021 – NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), the leading provider of networking products that power businesses both large and small, today announces a partnership with VuWall, a global technology leader in video wall control systems and unified visualization solutions. Certification of NETGEAR’s M4250 and M4300 line of AV switches with VuWall’s video wall control technology will reduce integration time and lower the cost of video wall deployments. The NETGEAR and VuWall partnership is accelerating the AV over IP transition in the Professional Audio Visual market by simplifying deployments and eliminating complexity.
NETGEAR’s M4250 and M4300 line of AV switches are certified to operate seamlessly with VuWall’s line of VuScape controllers, VuStream encoders and decoders and the TRx Centralized Management Platform. VuWall software and NETGEAR’s AV switches comprise the core of an enterprise’s IP video wall network. Together, the companies provide the ideal building blocks for a scalable and worry-free AV over IP deployment by ensuring interoperability between all the different devices that share the same network, enabling multiple brands to work together harmoniously.
With an interoperable platform built on an open architecture, VuWall provides a versatile solution with powerful features that simplify multi-surface display management. NETGEAR’s Pro AV line of network switches comes pre-configured to handle the complex multicasting of AV signals with the capability of managing huge amounts of data in high-traffic environments. Together, NETGEAR and VuWall provide the ideal combination of software and hardware to facilitate network configuration, source management and content distribution across multi-displays and video walls in an AV over IP network.
Managing AV over IP networks that typically carry large amounts of data traffic is a known industry challenge. VuWall and NETGEAR are simplifying the configuration and control of the various AV devices and the routing of AV signals originating from a multitude of sources, in different source formats, to multiple displays throughout an organization. The VuWall TRx management platform along with the M4250 and M4300 line of AV switches provide an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface connecting any source to any display, for simplified configuration and control that anyone can use, without the need for any programming.
