10Gb Connectivity  10Gb Connectivity

10Gb connectivity allows full network convergence of lighting control, audio, intercom, and compressed video.

PoE++  PoE++

PoE++ implementation on every copper port allows you to connect any PoE device available today.

Today’s PoE standards (802.3af802.3at, and 802.3bt) are all met.

GigaCore 30i can directly drive any IP PTZ camera, network nodes, or PoE-powered loudspeaker on the market.

AV validated for real applications  AV validated for real applications

GigaCore switches are fully validated in real-world applications with major brands in the AV industry for different protocols, including NDI™, Dante™, AES67ST-2110IPMXMA-Net, and many more.

Luminex doesn’t just approve against a protocol but actually tests it. Because of real-world application validation and interoperability testing, Luminex understands the applications and makes sure you can deploy their product with confidence. The Luminex support team speaks your language and has a vast amount of AV knowledge built up. Not just from talking protocols but from working with you and living through your real application network challenges.

Robust yet silent design  Robust yet silent design

robust yet silent design allows you to use GigaCore in any AV environment.

Fans are speed controlled to have minimal noise impact and guarantee a long-life operation. This allows you to place the GigaCore in even the quietest environments like theaters and studios.

Araneo to manage and monitor the complete system

All GigaCore switches can be managed with a single network-wide tool: Araneo

Araneo’s online mode shows everything you need to know about the status of your GigaCore network. Data streams and topology are visualized as are the port status of every GigaCore. Monitor your network with confidence and act before the show gets interrupted!

In Offline mode, Araneo lets you plan the complete network topology and all Gigacore settings in advance, reducing network commissioning time to a mere click of a button

Intuitive web UI

The built-in web UI lets you make adjustments to the settings intuitively. Assigning Groups (VLANS) to ports, creating trunks, or adjusting other port- and PoE settings can be done on the fly and the status page gives you an overview of the complete switch at a glance. The toolbox page allows you to manage profiles and lets you upgrade firmware easily.
