[Genk, Belgium, 5th of June 2023] — Luminex, the leading manufacturer of professional AV networking solutions, launches no less than 5 new models at infocomm 2023. Two new GigaCore switches designed for installation and integration; The GigaCore 10i and GigaCore 16i.On their booth #5473, Luminex also presents and demonstrates three new touring-grade professional AV switches joining its range of easy to operate ethernet switches, namely the GigaCore 20t and GigaCore 18t, both 10Gb switches, and a 1Gb version as well; the GigaCore 16t.

“These new models are specifically designed for professional AV installation and integration applications found in theaters, Studio’s, OB-vans, Board rooms, etc. and come with all features the GigaCore family is well known for in the Professional AV market.

Together with the well accepted, GigaCore 30i, our first 10Gb switch that we launched successfully last year, and with the three new touring grade models with rugedised connectivity, presented here at Infocomm, they further complete the GigaCore family, a range of pro AV ethernet switches that make converged networking easy for all AV integrations” says Bart Swinnen, Founder and CEO of Luminex.

GigaCore 10i and 16i at a Glance

GigaCore 10i and 16i, both half-19” wide with additional flexibility in the form of 100x100mm vesa-spaced mount points, are an excellent choice for fixed installation and integration applications with specific requirements to port count, available space, mounting or redundancy. Units can be combined into one rack space to provide a high port count or redundant setup. With port speeds up to 10 Gigabit and PoE++ options, the newly added models are made to meet the most stringent demands in these applications.

GigaCore 20t, 18t, and 16t at a Glance

GigaCore 20t, 18t, and 16t are built for touring professionals in the event production and entertainment industry who require reliable and robust networking equipment with port speeds up to 10 Gigabit and PoE++ options, these switches are made to meet the demands of touring, featuring a ruggedized construction and connectivity built to withstand the rigors of transport, set-up, and tear-down.

All of Luminex’s GigaCore ethernet switches are dedicated to converged networking out of the box. Now with 10Gb connectivity options, the GigaCore range allows full network convergence of audio, lighting, intercom, (compressed) video and more. Pre-configured Quality of Service (QoS), IGMP multicast, and PTPv2 settings will assure a responsive and extremely stable network environment for the most demanding time-critical audio protocols like Dante™, AES67, Q-SYS, and many others. Furthermore AVB/MILAN is supported out of the box on the management group (VLAN) and can operate simultaneously with the aforementioned PTPV2 applications in a converged network on multiple Groups (VLANS). Without the need of any IT knowledge and without having to make compromises.
