1. What is a Media Box

The Q-NEX media box is a helpful AV decoder that interprets and converts digital audio and video data to display devices that are connected with Q-NEX NMP in the classroom. In building a smart campus by implementing Q-NEX smart school solution, the MBX can be applied to distribute audio and video from one place to any other place on campus. For example, in the cafeteria, you can hear the daily news reports and weather forecasts, which are broadcasted by the announcement sector of the campus. Regardless of the form of media or the impact of space limitations, MBX can do its best to transmit content in any place and effectively, anytime and anywhere.

2. Exploring the Interface of Media Box

By exploring the interface of Media Box, users have the opportunity to discover a wide range of possibilities. The interface provides a platform for users to flexibly transmit the content they wish to broadcast or live stream., allowing them to personalize their media experience based on their individual tastes and preferences.

2.1 LAN interface

Local Area Network (LAN) interface provides comprehensive functionality beyond mere assistance for network audio and video broadcasting. So MBX can facilitate real-time broadcasting, affording users the ability to capture, and disseminate diverse forms of audio, video, and text notification.

By implementing the MBX approach, our primary aim is to foster educational fairness and guarantee equitable access to opportunities for all students.

2.2 HDMI in and out interface

The HDMI input interface facilitates the integration of external video signals, whereas the HDMI output interface is capable of transmitting video signals with a maximum resolution of 1080p.

2.3 IR and RS232 interface

The IR (Infrared) and RS232 (Recommended Standard 232) interfaces serve important functions in various electronic devices and systems.

The IR interface utilizes infrared technology to enable wireless communication among devices. The technology facilitates the sending and receiving of infrared signals with the intention of remote control. The RS232 interface, meanwhile, employs a dedicated protocol for the sequential transmission and reception of data, thereby establishing a standardized approach to serial communication between devices.

2.4 Two colors light

Red light means the status of power on, and green light means the Network is connected. The objective of these two lights is to visually convey to users the present operational condition and network connectivity of the device.

2.5 The audio outputs for active speaker and passive speaker

There are also two audio outputs for the active speaker and passive speaker respectively. The purpose of audio output in a passive speaker is to facilitate the integration of speakers within the speaker system configuration. The audio output of one passive speaker can be linked to the audio input of another passive speaker, resulting in either a series or parallel speaker connection.

2.6 DC IN

And the last DC IN stands for power input for DC supply, and maintains a constant flow of current in one direction.
