BG-UM44-150L-KIT: HDMI and HDBaseT Matrix Switcher
This is a 4x4 Ultra High Definition 18gbps long-distance matrix switcher with bi-directional IR, advanced EDID and downscaling. This HDMI matrix extender enables users to connect four HDMI sources to up to eight displays. Isn’t this a 4x4? Yes! It is able to connect sources to up to eight displays using four HDMI outputs mirrored to four HDBaseT outputs that run simultaneously.
The maximum resolution of this matrix switcher is 4K@60Hz (YUV 4:4:4) on all HDMI and HDBaseT ports. It is also HDCP 2.2 and HDCP 1.x compliant; so your high definition content is protected from unauthorized access.
With the downscaling capability, users can downscale video from 4K to 1080p if necessary. This feature grants users an extra layer of flexibility and security. Another feature that provides significant flexibility is the PoE support. PoE stands for Power over Ethernet, which enables power and network data to be transmitted through one ethernet cable. PoE eliminates the need for additional power sources, making room for simple set ups.
In regards to its audio capabilities, HDMI audio pass-through allows users to handle high quality sound up to 7.1 CH HD audio. Various audio codecs are also supported, including LPCM, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. Audio can be de-embedded from the unit as well through the analog and digital coax ports.
Controlling this long-range matrix is simple. This device can be controlled using the buttons on the front panel, an IR remote, RS-232, LAN, and a web GUI. Bi-directional IR matrix routing is also supported, ensuring simple remote control of the currently selected video source as well as remote control of displays from the source location.
An iOS control app for your Matrix Switcher
If you have an iPad, this solution just got even better for you! The Control app allows users to change input and output device names to efficiently manage connected devices at a glance. Status indicators show if the matrix switcher is visible to the app and to show which sources are connected and active. A Pass-Thru button allows users to easily and quickly set input/output matching(1 to 1, 2 to 2, etc). The Switch Control app also allows for a number of Preset configurations based off of the users’ needs. This app makes the home application perfect, since users would be able to control their matrixing system from a device they’re already comfortable with.
Overall, this long-range matrixing kit is perfect for home installation. Take control of your home entertainment system today. Contact a BZBGEAR representative to receive assistance.
