Both HDMI 2.0 Matrix Switchers will launch in booth #2608 at CEDIA 2017, Sept. 6–9. in San Diego.

KanexPro’s ultra-fast switching 4K HDMI 2.0 (HDMX88-18G) features 18 Gbps of bandwidth for each eight HDMI inputs and eight outputs, as well as a pristine video support up to 4K/60Hz. With steadfast switching up to 0.2 seconds when used with several HDMI devices to 4K display, the HDMI 2.0 Matrix is the ultimate switching solution.

The HDMI 2.0 Matrix includes eight additional audio ports via S/PDIF connectors to support audio de-embedding from HDMI and can be fully controlled via RS-232, IR and Web based GUI using Ethernet where end-users can switch, control and manage the matrix using graphical and visual indicators directly from the computer or touch-panels or any other 3rd party system.

It includes powerful EDID management for reliable AV distribution and routing, as well as routing through RS-232 commands and web GUI interface.

The HDMI 2.0 Matrix, available as a 4×4 or 8×8, features high-end resolutions, such as 4096×2160@30, 50 or 60Hz, 3840×2160@24, 25, 30, 50 or 60Hz and 2560×1080@60Hz displaying 21:9 aspect ratios, and full HD, 1080p/60 is available as a standard feature in the 2.0 Matrix Switcher.

“Cutting-edge technologies and professional features were previously reserved for the few who could afford them,” says 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.”
