Lightware Visual Engineering has integrated open APIs, intuitive diagnostics, and real-time analytics into its HDBaseT product line, making troubleshooting and monitoring easier than ever before.


Lightware Visual Engineering, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the professional integrated systems market, provides connectivity and signal management products that utilise HDBaseT technology, on top of its comprehensive range of AV-over-IP offerings.

Lightware’s significant investment in HDBaseT technology offers a wide range of professional AV connectivity solutions, from HDMI point-to-point extension to signal-to-switch. These solutions offer AV professionals three distinct and powerful benefits:

Open Application Programmers Interface (API)

Lightware empowers AV professionals to unlock the possibilities in any AV operation by providing a completely open Application Programmers Interface (API). Each user’s manual and command document provides detailed instructions that allow integrators to control, monitor or manage a Lightware device easily. Every bit of data in a system powered by Lightware, all the way down to the device level, is openly available for higher level management and monitoring systems for troubleshooting and diagnostic purposes.


Intuitive Diagnostics for Simplified Troubleshooting

Lightware provides intuitive diagnostics that enable AV professionals to monitor the status of cables and devices in the system. The diagnostics are gathered in real-time and include the exact transmission error rate between the transmitter and receiver. Previously, AV professionals had to physically check each cable and product within an ecosystem to ensure they were securely connected and operating properly. Lightware’s detailed diagnostics are readily available on the system interface to eliminate unnecessary system downtime.


Real-Time Analytics for Peace-of-Mind 

Lightware simplifies system management by providing real-time feedback on the exact pixel count and clock frequency. Lightware products have a built-in video frame rate analyzer – a tool unmatched and unrivaled in the professional AV industry. As a result, AV professionals can have peace-of-mind through real-time analytics, which is especially important for critical AV operations. The transparent data shares detailed information on the system status that can be utilised for higher-level integration. 

“The professional AV industry is in the midst of a convergence of audiovisual systems and internet protocols, but after two decades, HDMI technology is still reliable, useful and interoperable,” says Gergely Vida, CEO at Lightware Visual Engineering. “Lightware’s investment in providing information to simplify integration is a unique benefit that can’t be found in many other HDMI technologies. Lightware offers a full range of HDMI solutions, including the TPS Smart Extender Series, TPS Extender Series and MMX Matrix Switchers, featuring HDBaseT.” 

Lightware offers a full range of HDBaseT solutions that are in stock and ready to ship. Its current lead-time ranges from four to eight weeks for larger models or projects with large quantities.
