Zektor Debuts 8x8 HDBaseT Switch at ISE 2013
Thanks to a luggage mishap, the real 8x8 HDBaseT switch never landed in Amsterdam, but Jeff Haynes shows us a mock-up at ISE 2013.
In the video below, CEO Jeff Haynes explains how Zektor “redesigned the IR circuitry” in its HDBaseT implementations to allow the product to work with anybody’s IR connectors, IR emitters and IR blasters.
“Whoever you want to use, our products are going to work,” Haynes says. “It’s like a plug-and-play situation for IR.
Naturally, Haynes wouldn’t miss an opportunity to promote his latest Clarity HD Elite matrix switch that debuted at CEDIA 2012.
Haynes notes that the product can “pull the HDMI audio stream out to a distributed speaker amp so … stereo left/right, conversion, whatever you want to do, Zektor is doing it.”
Exhibiting for the first time at ISE in the Control4 booth, Zektor was proud to be the first matrix switch manufacturer to implement the home automation company’s Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP), allowing integrators to discover and pull all necessary drivers.
