KanexPro Introduces the AV Groundwork of Today and Tomorrow – the 4K UHD Modular Matrix Switcher System
The ultimate solution for reliable switching with full expandability and hot swappable cards
Brea, Calif. – November 2, 2015 – KanexPro, an industry-leading provider of connectivity solutions to the IT and A/V markets, is pleased to announce the KanexPro HDMMX Modular Matrix Series Switchers to their cast of reliable and innovative AV solutions. The HDMMX Modular Matrix Switcher system is the ultimate answer to universal switching needs for virtually any setting and application, ranging from hospitals to classrooms.
The KanexPro HDMMX Modular Matrix Series Switchers provide 4K Ultra HD video switching and transmission up to 10.2 Gbps on the backplane resulting in faster switching time. The switchers are available in four configurable frames for I/O sizes from 8×8 to 16×16, 32×32, and 64×64 to meet the application needs of today’s AV switching and distribution systems.
The HDMMX fits the needs of many common applications including medical imaging, post production, command and control rooms, staging and studio events, video-conferencing and video-simulation. Hospitals and medical institutions require a high-performance matrix switcher that can switch, extend and display high-definition surgical cameras both quickly and reliably making the KanexPro HDMMX perfect for their needs. The HDMMX has the capability of high-bandwidth signals and integrated switching, which is a great fit for control rooms and video-conferencing where fast and reliable high-quality video is essential. Pixel-free imaging, intelligent control over Ethernet and RS-232 provide high resolution and superior signal in the HDMMX making it a versatile solution.
“Our dealers, end users and consultants alike have been telling us they need a more flexible and ultra-reliable solution for mission critical applications. The 4K UHD MMX modular switching line provides a wide range of interchangeable components ensuring that each system is right-sized for the application,” says Matthew Bute, vice president of sales and marketing for KanexPro. “HDMMX interchangeable cards and boxes give integrators and their clients the flexibility to expand the system by simply adding the input or output cards as needed.”
The KanexPro 4K UDH HDMMX Modular Matrix Switchers can be controlled via IR, RS232, or TCP/IP connections and offer a variety of sizes based on application need:
- The 8×8 has two input slots and two output slots with each modular input or output card supporting up to four device connections
- The 16×16 has four input slots and four output slots with each modular input or output card supporting up to four device connections
- The 32×32 has eight input slots and eight output slots with each modular input or output card supporting up to eight device connections
- The 64×64 has sixteen input slots and sixteen output slots with each modular input or output card supporting up to sixteen device connections
The modular input cards include connections for HDMI, DVI, VGA, HDBaseT (with RS232 and bi-directional wide-band IR), fiber optic and analog video with digital scaling via HD15 (VGA-UXGA, RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs, component video, S-video and composite video). The modular output cards include connections for HDMI, SDI, DVI, VGA, HDBaseT and fiber optic.
Stereo audio embedding is supported on the HDMI input cards to allow analog audio to be inserted into the digital signal. Stereo audio can also be de-embedded using the HDMI or HDBaseT output cards. Advanced EDID management restricts sources to output only stereo audio while emulating the native video data from the attached displays. This system allows analog audio to be switched with the paired digital video, eliminating the requirement for an additional audio matrix switcher.
The clear button caps provide readable text on the front panel which can be customized for each installation. With control options including IR, RS232, and TCP/IP, a wide range of third party control systems can be easily integrated. The ten programmable presets provide an efficient means of configuring the video and audio distribution for common usage patterns.
