Security for virtualized datacentres

Distance runner

In all tests performed, there was no observable loss in quality in either audio or video streams. In fact, the most limiting factor was the range of my Xbox 360’s wireless controller as I attempted to play GTA IV from the other side of the house. Incidentally, Aavara also produces a rather more expensive IP version, the PB5000 if Ethernet is your cable of choice.

Aavara PCE122

Not cheap, but neither are the alternatives

Verdict

The Aavara PCE122 is certainly a great device for those needing to distribute HD signals across long distances, but it's quite an investment to simply get away from a noisy Xbox. Public venue owners though, would be wise to consider this option over the cost of rewiring. ®
