Smart-e adds multi-channel digital matrix series

Smart-e has broadened its digital matrix range by launching a series of Digital Modular Matrices (DMM), aimed at overcoming typical integration issues such as legacy kit and mixed signal formats.

Suitable for a wide range of multi-channel signal switching and distribution for commercial and educational environments, the SDX series distributes signals over a single 100m Cat5-8 cable, and houses various input/output blades giving installers/users the flexibility to design their own matrix to meet specific requirements.
Sizes start with the SDX-8x8 (8 inputs x 8 outputs), SDX-16x16 (16 input x 16 outputs) and SDX-32x32 (32 inputs x 32 outputs), with other options available up to a 288 inputs x 288 outputs.
Fully HDCP compliant and incorporating enhanced EDID management the matrices are capable of selecting between 8, 16 or 32 different devices to 8, 16 or 32 displays for HDMI, DVI, DP++, HDBaseT and 3G-SDI together with single mode fibre connections.

Control options include IP, RS232 or from the front panel. Legacy products are catered for with analogue input cards capable of accepting RGBHV, YPrPb, Y/C and PAL/NTSC all of which can be up-scaled to 1080p resolution.
