Let’s Talk About the Technical Stuff

This family of matrix switchers deliver HDCP 2.2 support, dominates resolutions up 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 / 8 bit color with static and dynamic HDR output support for each channel, and feature advanced independent EDID management control for each HDMI input as well as an Easy EDID analyzer. Built-in re-clocking circuity ensures the switcher offers the maximum compatibility with all AV devices including today's cable boxes and streaming media players, but is also backwards compatible with sources having older HDMI version chip sets. 


After This There is No Turning Back

Uniquely operate in break-away mode with analog and digital audio de-embedding on all outputs, while routing audio and video independent of one another. 

Both units support the full HDMI 2.0 spec on all ports including HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision.  Need another driver for your current setup?  Not a problem – Savant, Crestron, RTI, Elan, and Control4 drivers are available.
