Aurora, OH: Network Technologies Inc
(NTI) today announced the addition of the 4K HDMI Matrix Switch Over HDBase-T
with Power over Ethernet (PoE) to its popular line of Video Matrix Switches.
The matrix switch routes uncompressed Ultra-HD 4Kx2K digital HDMI signals and
IR from eight HDMI video sources to eight displays and speakers via inexpensive
CATx cable using HDBase-T Technology.
The SM-8X8-C64KR-POE-HDBT matrix
switch is capable of connecting to as many as eight HDMI video sources directly
and eight video displays via ST-C6HDPOE-HDBT-R-LC receivers with a maximum
extension of 328 feet from the switch using CAT5e/6/7 cable. Power over
Ethernet (PoE) provides power to all connected receivers – no power supply
required at the remote unit. Each input can be independently connected to any
or all outputs.
The 4K HDMI Matrix Switch Over
HDBase-T supports Ultra-HD 4Kx2K resolutions to 4096x2160, HDTV resolutions to
1080p, and computer resolutions to 1920x1200. Configure and control the switch
through Ethernet, serial port, front panel buttons, or IR remote control.
Bi-directional IR control from input and output locations enable flexible
control. One IR remote control and two IR emitters and receivers are included
with the switch; additional IR accessories can be purchased if needed for more
extensive configurations. Ethernet ports on the switch and receivers can be
used to connect network devices such as 100Base-T routers, hubs, smart TVs, or
smart Blu-Ray players.
HDMI features supported include:
24/36-bit Deep Color; x.v.Color; Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby
Digital, DTS 7.1, and LPCM; 3D; bandwidth up to 225 MHz (6.75 Gbps); support
for CEC (consumer electronic control) compatible devices; and Lip Sync. The

units, the 4K HDMI Matrix Switch is ideal for many digital signage
