    AC-MX-88HDBT - Overview

    8x8 Matrix Switcher has Dual Outputs with HDMI & HDBaseT
    The AC-MX-88HDBT is an 8x8 HDMI/HDBaseT matrix switch. This unit includes 8 HDMI inputs and 8 HDMI/HDBaseT output blocks, and these output blocks have an HDBaseT and HDMI port. The matrix mirrors these ports, and both are active. This matrix supports HDMI 2.0(a/b), HDCP 2.3, up to 4K video resolution, and 18 Gbps bandwidth. We can pass 18Gbps through category cable using the HDBaseT technology we have developed called "ICT." This switch allows any source (Blu-ray, UHD Blu-ray, satellite receiver, game consoles, PCs, etc.) to be shown on any of the connected displays. This matrix equalizes and amplifies the output to ensure the HDMI signal can be transmitted through long HDMI cables without losing quality.

    Audio delay is "on-board," so you can manage to lip-sync issue before it is a problem. Also, with built-in Scalers, you don't have to forfeit that 4K signal because you have a couple of older displays. All that with Full EDID management allows 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)
    This EXCLUSIVE AVPro Edge technology allows you to convert high bandwidth signals that are between 9 Gbps - 18Gbps like UHD Players, HDR Content, Gaming Systems, PC's, and Media Players. The conversion uses a proprietary algorithm that impacts the original image a little as possible so you can transmit your HDR and high bandwidth signals over long-distance transmission to a display that supports 4K but does not support 18Gbps. Best of all, this is managed on a per output basis, so you have complete control over what individual runs are "down-clocked"

    ICT Technology on the HDBaseT Outputs
    ICT (Invisible Compression Technology) is a revolution in HDMI extension technology. This proprietary technology can compress high bandwidth HDMI signals into a more manageable size to fit through a CAT Cable "pipe". The ICT algorithm can manage all flavors of HDR including 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 as well as signals up to 18Gbps and 4K 60Hz 4:4:4. The architecture of ICT allows it to be compatible with all chroma subsampling types, color spaces and HDMI Deep Color up to 12 Bit.

    4K Up/Down Scaling
    Like other AVPro Edge Matrix Switchers this unit comes with scalers built-in on each of its outputs. With this scaler you can upscale an HDMI output from 1080p > 4K. With the HDBaseT outputs, you can scale from 4K >1080p for HDBaseT compatibility when using 3rd party HDMI extenders. There is a limitation to scaling with this unit, you are not able to downscale on the HDMI outputs, and you are not able to upscale on the HDBaseT outputs.

    Note: For maximum performance use AC-EX70-444-RNE HDBaseT Receivers.
