The AVPro Edge AC-AXION-X Empty Chassis is engineered for high-end systems and can handle any HDMI 2.0 signal, including 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos. With separately available audio downmixing cards, you have the option of downmixing Dolby Atmos audio into a 2 channel signal that is perfect for whole-home distribution.
This matrix becomes the backbone of your entire installation, delivering 18Gb/s 4K signals from the source to display. The integrator’s choices make AXION stand out; selecting between HDMI, HDMI with scaling, or HDBaseT for long video runs let the integrator decide what type of infrastructure will work best for them.
AVPro Edge User Interface (AEUI)
This built-in user interface comes standard on all AXION system switchers; setting up a video distribution system has never been less challenging. Managing HDMI signals can be challenging, 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 your installation. With AVPro Edge’s AXION System, the power is back in the hands of the installers.
ICT is a technology developed to ensure 18Gb/s distribution over standard category cable. That means what you put in is what you see on the screen. No need to worry about compression artifacts and banding like you find with other compression methods.
Ultimate HDR Support
This matrix supports all flavors of HDR in all formats. Including HDR, HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HLG, BBC, and NHK. All of them are permitted in up to 4k 60 Hz and up to 12-bit Deep Color. All color space compressions are compatible.
Extreme EDID Management
With 29 onboard EDID’s, including HDR EDID’s, not getting a picture is simply a thing of the past. You can manage the input side of the switch by selecting a preloaded EDID. It also can instantly read an EDID from any connected display and apply it to the desired input, all with the push of a button.
The front panel allows you to do basic configurations, including EDID, Audio, Matrixing, and network. All without connecting a PC or hooking anything up. This additional mode of control is a welcome resource on the job site.
MCS (Mission Critical Scaling) Technology
With MCS technology, the power is given to the integrator to choose what types of signals end up on the screen. Scaling is ideal when working with different kinds of TVs and Projectors in the same system.
There is no need to set your source to 2-channel, no matter what kind of audio this matrix switcher receives. Converting audio to 2-channel in the matrix allows you to deliver Dolby Atmos sound to a home theater and 2-channel audio to a bedroom simultaneously.
Dual Audio De-Embedding
The user can extract 2-channel PCM audio from each output. NOTE: the analog port only supports 2CH PCM. It features four digital optical TOSLINK outputs with support for 7CH LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital +, DTS, DTS Master Audio.
Extracted audio routing options include:
Bind to output (extracted audio swaps with the video, this is the default mode)
Bind to input (extracted audio is fixed to the corresponding input by the same number)
Independent (extracted audio is routed however integrators like and there are commands to allow it to function as a separate matrix)
