Ultra-fast for immediate, dependable HDMI switching and 4K video distribution
Brea, Calif. – August 30, 2016 – KanexPro, an industry-leading provider of connectivity solutions to the IT and A/V markets, announces the new HDMX44-4K and HDMX88-4K—ultra-fast HDMI matrix switchers featuring 4K video resolution at 60Hz with HDCP2.2. The matrix switchers are the latest additions to KanexPro’s lineup of reliable and innovative solutions.
These HDCP 2.2 matrix switchers with 4K @60Hz are available in either 4×4 or 8×8 options. The 4×4 HDMI matrix switcher includes four inputs and four outputs with audio de-embedding, the latest HDCP 2.2 specs and supported video resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz. The 8×8 version is similar to the 4X4, but it boasts eight inputs and eight outputs. Both provide a lightning fast switching of less than 0.2 seconds. The HDMI matrix switchers are ideal for a multitude of residential applications including premium home theater and cinema rooms where immediate and dependable HDMI switching and distribution of 4K video is required. These ultra-fast switchers are controlled entirely via web-based GUI using Ethernet, allowing integrators to switch, control and matrix directly from a touch panel or computer. RS-232 and IR control is also available.
“These ultra-fast HDCP 2.2 compliant switchers are designed for home theater users that demand hair-trigger switching and distribution of their HDMI devices like AppleTV, STBs and Ultra HD Blu-ray players with the highest resolutions,” says Kashyap Khetia, product-marketing manager for KanexPro. “We created these switchers with a smart home theater in mind, so that users can control all their sources to multiple displays with zoned audio to multiple rooms and we deliver integrators and end-users solutions tailored directly to their needs. We will be unveiling these matrix switchers and other feature-rich products at CEDIA 2016.”
The 4X4 and 8X8 switchers provide four or eight additional audio ports via S/PDIF connectors to support de-embedding from HDMI and expedient firmware upgrades through micro USB ports. The switchers transmit 4K x 2K at 60Hz signal up to 15 meters and feature easy installation through their sleak, rack-mounting design.
