The AC-MX-88 is an 8x8 HDMI matrix switch that supports HDMI 2.0(a/b), HDCP 2.3, up to 4K video resolution, and up to 18 Gbps bandwidth. This switch allows any source (Blu-ray, UHD Blu-ray, satellite receiver, game consoles, PCs, etc ..) to show on any connected displays. This matrix equalizes and amplifies the output to ensure the HDMI signal transmits through long HDMI cables without losing quality.
Audio Delay is "On-Board" so integrators can manage lip-sync issues before they become a problem. Video signal management is also possible with built-in scalers. So, if the installation has a couple of older displays, integrators don't need to forfeit 4K signals to pass the signal to all of the displays. In addition to scalers, this matrix supports complete EDID management, allowing maximum flexibility with today's broad mixture of sources and displays.
Avpro Edge User Interface
Managing HDMI signals can be challenging, from interoperability between sources and displays, changes in signal type coming from different types of content, to Hollywood protection with HDCP; each one of these things can cause havoc on the installation. With AVPro Edge's User Interface, we put the power back in the hands of the installers. Integrators can create their custom EDID strings to perfect the signal coming from the source or scale an image to work with a legacy display, all from an easily accessible and navigatable interface.
HDBaseT Compatibility Mode (HDBT-C)
Convert high bandwidth signals between 9Gbps-18Gbps to be used with HDBaseT transmitters. The conversion uses a proprietary algorithm that impacts the original image a little as possible, so integrators can transmit HDR and high bandwidth signals over long-distance transmission devices like HDBaseT Extenders or for use on a display that does not support 18Gbps. Best of all, integrators manage this setting on a per output basis, so they have complete control over which individual runs are "down-clocked."
4K Down Scaling
This technology is managed on each output. Scaling will allow integrators to downscale 4K sources on outputs going to displays that may not support 4K. Additionally, this matrix switcher can scale chroma subsampling from 4:4:4 down to 4:2:0, ensuring compatibility with legacy devices. Other matrix switchers force a signal to work by "dumbing down" the entire system even if there is only one old 1080P display.
