HDfury Vertex is an advanced, multi-function video processor designed for content creators, hobbyists, calibrators, and integrators. Featuring dual HDMI inputs and dual HDMI outputs, Vertex works as a 2x2 splitter, 2x1 switcher, 2x2 matrix, and 1080p to DCI scaler. It supports nearly any video and audio signal, including HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision HDR video. Video formats are supported in up to DCI 4K60, 4:4:4, 600 MHz, 18 Gbps on input and output. On top of it all, Vertex offers advanced HDCP and EDID features, including the ability to display HDCP 2.2 4K content on non-compliant devices.

Vertex can be controlled via IR, USB GUI utility for Windows, RS232, push buttons, or an iOS/Android mobile app via an optional HDfury GoBlue Bluetooth dongle. It has an OLED screen and PVC/metal design.

Six HDCP Engines

Providing a total of six HDCP 1.4 and 2.2 engines for decryption/encryption, the HDfury Vertex offers a bidirectional HDCP workaround solution, including HDCP 2.2 > HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 1.4 > HDCP 2.2. It is capable of connecting any HDCP1.x or HDCP2.x source devices to any HDCP1.x or HDCP 2.x sink devices. Each RX block decrypts the input first whether it's 1.x or 2.x. Then each output port can individually encrypt it to 1.4 (both) or 2.2 (only top port) or not encrypt it at all if it was not encrypted initially. Dual conversion can be operated on both channels simultaneously.

Display HDCP 2.2 on Non-Compliant Devices

Source devices, including media servers and head-ends like Netflix, encode their 4K content in the HDCP 2.2 copy-protection scheme. TVs must be HDCP 2.2-enabled to play it, and everything in the video chain, including switchers and receivers, must be compliant as well, or the display will go dark and/or display an HDCP error message. With Vertex as part of your setup, high-bandwidth switchers, receivers, and displays will all be able to accommodate HDCP 2.2 copy-protected 4K content.

2x2 Splitter

The HDfury Vertex allows you to split any signal up to 4K60, 4:4:4, 600 MHz. Switch between two inputs that will be replicated to two outputs. HDCP conversion can be configured and applied on the fly in order to always output the type of HDCP signal encryption that your display or sink device is expecting.

2x1 Switcher

Vertex is capable of switching between two inputs up to 4K60, 4:4:4, 600 MHz and scaling them to one or more outputs. HDCP conversion can be configured and applied on the fly in order to always output the type of HDCP signal encryption that your display or sink device is expecting.

2x2 Matrix

A matrix solution is available for HDMI streams up to 4K60, 4:4:4 8b; 4K60, 4:2:2 12b; 4K120, 4:2:0 8b; or 8K30, 4:2:0 8b.

Ultra-Scaling up to 4K60 4:4:4 600 MHz

Vertex offers advanced scaling modes to ensure that any HDMI/HDCP revision sink device get fed at its max capabilities. It features upscale, downscale, passthru, and bypass modes and allows chroma conversion as well as color space and color depth modification on the fly at 8-/10-/12-/16-bit for FHD, UHD, and DCI (4096 X 2160p) resolutions. Each output can be set with individual scaling rules.

Comprehensive Control

Vertex can be controlled via IR, USB GUI utility for Windows, RS232, push buttons, or an iOS/Android mobile app via the optional GoBlue Bluetooth dongle.

HDR and Infoframe Metadata

Vertex is capable of injecting and extracting live Infoframe and HDR metadata at any resolution and also in real time. Incoming metadata and self-generated metadata can be built and deciphered in real time. Additionally, Vertex also support AVI infoframe, VSIF, and other infoframe manipulation.

HDMI Audio Extracting

HDfury Vertex can extract HDMI audio up to 5.1 and pass through any sound format, including Atmos and DD+ via HDMI while downscaling the video for older AVRs.

RS232 Control for Mac/Windows/Linux

All Vertex GUI controls are available via RS232 commands in order to ensure a total control from any serial based computer.

Advanced EDID Management

Vertex offers a selected EDID bank, custom uploaded EDID, a self-generated Automix EDID, or fixed basic EDID. Sniff EDID from connected sink devices and save/edit/load any custom EDID table at any time. Select and pick any EDID of your choice from a preloaded list of 100 EDID tables. It loads and resets HPD to present your chosen one automatically. The AutoMix EDID feature will create a custom EDID by mixing both sink EDID connected to the output ports. Mixing rules in AutoMix mode can be selected through four different algorithms. Some EDID flags can be forced in Automix such as: 2.0 Stereo, 5.1 Multi, 7.1 Full Sound, Native, BT.2020/xvYcc, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision, 3D Remove, YCbCr Remove. Vertex also offers the possibility to have a specific/individual EDID per input. Vertex automatically sniffs DV mandatory string from a connected capable DV sink.

HDMI/CEC Total Commander

HDfury Vertex offers a unique CEC command manager, with CEC compatible equipment. CEC commands allow an HDMI source to send commands to connected HDMI devices.

Signal Info Display

Your setup info is always available at first sight whether you're looking at the OLED screen, OSD, Windows GUI, or mobile app.

HDfury VERTEX Reviews

High Quality Product

Date: 2019-03-03

First off, this in not a mainstream product that everybody will want. It serves users looking for both very specific information and manipulation of HDMI signals. If you are looking to tailor the output of a device to particular parameters this is a great device. Im not qualified to give many specifics so please read other reviews and see the online reviews to give you a better handle its capabilities. They are quiet impressive. If you are in doubt, wait, there is a Vertex 2 coming around May or a bit later.

Works like a charm.

I'm using the Vertex so that I can broadcast on elegato in 1080 and still game in 4k. It wasn't hard to set up. Just update the drivers, tweak some settings with the help of HDfury technical support and I was up and running. Product works exactly as it says it does.

Asked by: Anonymous
This product only offers 2 inputs, it does not offer 4. As far as resolving EDID issues, that is unfortunately something that you would need to test out to see the results. You may want to reach out to Denon directly to see what solutions they may have for EDID issues. For assistance with that feel free to email us directly at [email protected]

This does offer bi-directional HDCP workflow, it is possible it will work for your needs. However with any situation like this the only way to know for sure if it will work for your needs is to test it out and see the results.

Can this input two separate 4k Signals and output them as two separate 1080p signals?
Asked by: Andrew
To answer my own question, I asked the manufacturer and they said it can't be done since it only has 1 upscale port and 1 downscale port, and you can't downscale on the upscale port.

question

Can it output to 2 displays of different resolution? i.e. 4K + 1080p (downscaled)
Asked by: APJ
Yes. I am currently using it that way. 4k input downscaled to 1080p (Xbox One X to monitor) and the other port is a 4k pass through for another gaming system.
