The HTX-TC1 topology reduces the 10G Ethernet switch port count per node by 50%, thanks to Simultaneous/Full Duplex operation on a single 10G Link! No longer do you need separate transmit and receive network connections. The HT Series is the most complete in-room solution ever created increasing capabilities while reducing costs and complexity. The HTX-TC1 has the lowest 10G Ethernet switch port cost due to its ability to transmit and receive full bandwidth in both directions on a single port. Typical AV over IP systems utilize two ports, one for encoding and one for decoding. The HTX-TC1 would only require a 24-port switch compared to the usual 48 of current solutions.
