Luminex, the leading manufacturer of professional AV networking solutions, will be launching a new model, the much-anticipated half 19” Pro AV ethernet switch GigaCore 10t, at LDI 2023.

The new compact addition to the GigaCore lineup is specifically designed for demanding touring applications and will be on display at the joined booth #319 of Luminex and their long-standing partner A.C. Lighting Inc.

“This new model is designed for professional AV touring applications and with its ruggedised connectors and a large option of also ruggedised fibre optic connector types, GigaCore 10t deals with all possible challenges of live entertainment applications

GigaCore 10t comes with all the features for which the GigaCore family is well known in the Professional AV market. It will be available with a 10Gb option as well as with a PoE++ option on all ports.

Together with its siblings, the GigaCore 20t,18t and 16t, it marks the completion of our touring grade 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 10t is a half 19” solution, making it ideal for building a fully redundant A/B network in a single rack space.

The switch also features two M10 inserts to be mounted in any rig.

GigaCore 10t is built for touring professionals in the event production and entertainment industry who require reliable and robust networking equipment with port speeds of up to 10 Gigabits and PoE++ options. These switches are made to meet the demands of touring, featuring a ruggedised construction and connectivity built to withstand the rigours of transport, set-up, and teardown.

All Luminex GigaCore ethernet switches are dedicated to converged networking out of the box. Now, thanks to the 10 Gb 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 ensure 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 be activated on all other Groups as well. It can operate simultaneously with PTPv2 applications in a converged network on multiple groups (VLANS).

This is all possible without needing any IT knowledge and without making compromises.
