KanexPro will debut its latest line of HDMI 2.0 Matrix Switchers in booth 3481 at InfoComm 2017, June 14–16 in Orlando, including the 4x4 HDMX44-18G and 8x8 HDMX88-18G, with the latest 4:4:4 color sampling and HDR 10.
KanexPro’s HDMI 2.0 Matrix Switchers feature 18Gbps of bandwidth for each HDMI I/O, as well as video resolution support up to 4K at 60Hz. With switching at up to 0.2 seconds when used with several video sources to 4K display, the HDMI 2.0 Matrix is a highly competent switching solution. The HDMI 2.0 Matrix includes four additional audio ports via S/PDIF connectors to support audio de-embedding from HDMI and can be fully controlled via RD-232, IR, and web-based GUI using Ethernet. End users can switch, control, and manage the matrix using graphical and visual indicators directly from the computer or from touchpanels. The switcher includes EDID management for reliable distribution and routing, as well as routing through RS-232 commands and web GUI interface.
The HDMI 2.0 Matrix, available as a 4x4 or 8x8, features high-end resolutions, such as 4096x2160 at 30Hz, 50Hz, or 60Hz; 3840x2160 at 24Hz, 25Hz, 30Hz, 50Hz, or 60Hz; and 2560x1080 at 60Hz, displaying 21:9 aspect ratios, and full HD, 1080p/60.
“Cutting-edge technologies and professional features were previously reserved for the few who could afford them,” said Kashyap Khetia, senior product marketing manager for KanexPro. “However, something that was a major barrier for smaller markets, such as small government sectors, house of worship centers, education, and sports bars, is becoming less of a concern as Ultra HD 4K becomes more affordable and available to everyone. With today’s advancements, affordability does not mean a sacrifice in quality, as KanexPro’s HDMI 2.0 Matrix Switcher includes premium features, such as web-based GUI control and automated switching, which will help deliver a professional substance to the integrator and our final customer.”
