Black Box 8x2 Video Matrix Switcher, 18G Seamless Switching, HDMI 2.0
The 8 x 2 Video Matrix Switcher, 18G Seamless Switching, HDMI 2.0 4K 60 Hz 4:4:4 HDR simplifies meeting room and presentation space system integration by providing one HDBaseT input, four HDMI inputs, one VGA input, one DP input, one USB-C input, one HDBaseT output and one HDMI output. It also provides external audio inputs to be embedded in HDBaseT, HDMI and VGA video inputs respectively. Moreover, it provides MIX audio input for global audio.
The matrix switcher provides true 4K scaling up to 4K @ 60 Hz @ 4:4:4. Both inputs and outputs are capable of providing 4K @ 60 Hz @ 4:4:4 signals. The HDBaseT input and output provide an innovative solution with VLC technology, allowing transmission of HDMI 2.0 signals over a CATx cable while ensuring very high, original image quality. It is designed for use with the VX-HDB2-KIT extender kit. The USB-C input is ideal for AV interfacing with newer MacBook, Chromebook, and Windows PC, as well as smart phones and tablets.
The matrix switcher supports auto switching on HDMI, HDBaseT and HDMI loop outputs based on TMDS activity signals sensing. It also allows users to control system functionality via Web GUI, RS-232, IR and CEC. Additionally, users can control a relay device such as the rise and fall of a projector screen over RELAY ports.
The matrix switcher is designed to be the central component of AV system. It is ideal for applications where multiple signals with different resolutions must be optimized for displays. It is also suitable for presentation spaces where two displays are needed.
