Extreme EDID Management
29 onboard EDID’s allow you to 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 setup including: EDID, audio, Matrixing, and network. All without connecting a PC or hooking anything up.
Full matrix control is available on the internal WebOS. Plug the matrix into the network and punch in the default IP (192.168.1.239) or use DHCP to connect to a full-control system. The Web GUI is compatible with mobile devices such as a phone or tablet for real-time control.
Resolution Down Scaling
Built-in down scalers throughout each HDBaseT output allows you to downscale 4K to 1080p and lock that per output. This will ensure you never send a 4K signal to a display that isn’t able to process the picture.
Regardless of what kind of audio this matrix switcher receives, it can convert it to two channels. This allows you to deliver Dolby Atmos sound to a home theater and two-channel audio to a bedroom at the same time.
Audio De-embedding allows 8 digital coax outputs with support for six-channel LPCM, Dolby Digital, and DTS. Extracted audio routing options include bound to output, bound to input, and independent matrix.
You can control the volume of each of the de-embedded audio outputs separately via control commands.
