Smart-e launches 4K-8x8-L HDBaseT matrix switcher
Smart-e has launched the 4K-8x8-L multipoint to multipoint HDBaseT matrix switcher. It supports eight HDMI inputs with eight HDBaseT/HDMI mirrored outputs, in addition to eight audio inputs/outputs and ten infra-red inputs/outputs.
The 4K-8x8-L is suitable for use in residential and commercial settings, and it is HDCP 2.2 compatible.
HDBaseT outputs extend the signals up to 70m of Cat 6 cable, each dual output simultaneously transmits via both HDMI and HDBaseT connections, allowing for up to 16 displays in total from the matrix.
The 4K-8x8-L has the ability to embed and de-embed audio at the input and output respectively. Eight digital (S/PDIF) and analogue stereo audio connections are available for inserting or extracting audio from the HDMI signal.
The 4K-8x8-L can be controlled either through IP, internal web browser, RS232 and front panel buttons allowing for maximum applicability to any potential control system. The addition of multiple infra-red ports provides a method of transmitting and receiving IR signals to and from the displays, allowing the 4K-8x8-L to cope with many different installation requirements.
All Smart-e equipment comes with a 3-year warranty and unlimited technical support.
