The Intelix FLX-44 HDMI/HDBaseT Matrix Switcher is a 4 input and 4 output matrix switcher designed for audio and video routing and for distribution of HDMI signals.
The FLX-44 features HDBaseT twisted pair extension for each output, and simultaneous HDMI on the first 2 outputs, allowing the same signal to be routed to the HDMI connector and a remote destination with an HDBaseT receiver. The HDBaseT ports support 1080p HDMI video with audio, bi-directional wide-band IR, matrix control via IR, RS-232 tunneling, and HDCP up to 196' away. Each HDBaseT output port supplies power to the attached extender, eliminating the need for a power supply at the display end. Each output features a stereo audio de-embedder for connection to amplifiers or DSPs.
The switcher can be controlled by front panel buttons or by IR, RS-232, or Etherenet connections. The front panel buttons are numbered and have clear caps for easy visibility. The matrix includes a simple IR remote control to allow IR switching. This IR remote control can be learned into universal remotes and IR based control systems. An IR All In port is provided, which allows one IR connection to control all 4 remote displays.
The 1RU matrix also features a full command set for RS-232 and Ethernet control with third party control systems, as well as control via a web browser. RS-232 commands to remote displays can also be embedded in the control stream through the matrix from both the RS-232 and Ethernet control ports, which will reduce the number of serial ports required for the control system.
The FLX-44 is HDMI compatible and supports up to 2K resolutions, Deep Color, and full 3D capabilities. The matrix features advanced EDID and HDCP handling, and has the ability to turn HDCP compliance ON and OFF to ensure maximum functionality with a wide range of sources. This switcher is designed for matrix routing in environments with demanding control system requirements such as corporate video conferencing, boardrooms, conference centers, and similar venues.
