The Gefen 4K Ultra HD 8x9 Matrix for HDMI with HDCP 2.2, HDBaseT 2.0, and POH (Power over HDBaseT) routes eight 4K sources to any combination of nine 4K displays. It features eight HDMI inputs, one HDMI output for local viewing/monitoring, and eight HDBaseT 2.0 outputs that extend AV and controls up to 330’ at 4K to eight receivers installed at remote viewing locations. The HDBaseT 2.0 Colligo platform ensures an even more robust and resilient connection than the industry standard HDBaseT. Resolutions up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096 x 2160 at 24 or 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3860 x 2160 at 60 Hz, 4:2:0 or 30 Hz 4:4:4) are supported. It is compliant with the latest HDCP 2.2 protocol, as well as the legacy HDCP 1.4.
The 8x9 matrix also supports 1080p, 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), 3DTV, and Deep Color (up to 1080p) resolution. Multichannel digital audio, including 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) digital audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X, and DTS-HD Master Audio, is also passed through. The HDBaseT extension between the matrix and the eight included receivers supports HDMI, two-way IR, RS-232, and Ethernet. IR from viewing locations to the sources can be routed independent from video if need be. POH (Power Over HDBaseT) technology provides power to the receiver units and other POH class-compliant devices, using the same Cat5 cable that extends the HDMI and control signals.
The Gefen Syner-G software’s discovery and show-me features simplify initial IP configuration. This matrix can be controlled via front panel buttons, a handheld IR remote, electrical IR, RS-232, Telnet, UDP, and Gefen’s intuitive and user-friendly web server interface. An easy-to read, super-bright OLED front panel display indicates routing status and IP settings. The matrix comes in a rack-mountable enclosure with detachable rack ears for shelf-top placement. Low-profile, surface-mountable receiver units accommodate Gefen locking HDMI cables for secure connections.
