MediaHub with Advanced Audio

The Model MH10-ARC adds 10 audio outputs to the MediaHub platform. Each output can demonstrate a sound bar, receiver or other device with three digital audio formats including ARC. With a BrightSign digital signage module built-in, the MH10-ARC produces flawless 4K video for a TV, and 10 HDMI-ARC audio outputs, with all the custom capabilities made possible by BrightAuthor software. Connect up to 10 HDMI audio sinks (soundbars, A-V receivers, etc.) to the MediaHub; each output provides identical audio signal, and individual CEC control of the sink.

The Model MH10-ARC is ideal for coordinating an HDMI audio and video experience, with multiple user interface options, and multiple ways to interface directly with AVRs and sound bars via Ethernet, RS-232, or CEC communication. To keep presentations fresh in the field, update media content and BrightAuthor programming via Ethernet.

  • Audio-video player and switch with integral BrightSignŽ digital signage module
  • 4K Video output offers embedded audio formats including Dolby Atmos*
  • Video output: 4K @ 60fps (x1)
  • Individual CEC control on each HDMI port
  • Audio Return Channel (ARC x10)
  • 20 ports for controls such as push-buttons or sensors (RJ9, x20)
  • Serial ports for switch modules, amplifiers, touch panels, or volume knob (RJ45, x3)
  • USB port for touch screen or other device (USB-A)
  • Ethernet port for remote monitoring and program updates 

* Other multichannel audio formats may work as pass-through, but they are not officially supported. Audio Authority/Ascentic Media products incorporating Brightsign SOM cores do not support metadata-centric content (HDR) Contact BrightSign support for further information.


10 Sound Bars and one 4K TV 

(See thumbnail above)

One 4K TV and 10 soundbars in 5.1 channel surround sound showcase the capacity of this MediaHub. This configuration uses the ten HDMI ports to deliver audio signals via HDMI Audio Return Channel. When a push-button is pressed, the MH10-ARC is programmed to play audio on that output. CEC commands must be programmed for each specific model of TV or soundbar. The Ethernet port allows maintenance to be performed remotely, including system health, data collection, program updates, and loading new content. Firmware updates and loading content may also be done on location via the respective microSD ports.
