Today we are highlighting one of AVPro Edge's most popular matrix switches, the 18Gbps 8x8 HDBaseT Matrix. This switch was built for the highest bandwidth signals up to
18Gbps and support Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and HLG. With built-in scalers on each HDBaseT output and advanced EDID management you have an ideal solution for a mixed 4K HDR and HD system .
The AC-MX88-AUHD-HDBT-PLUS features ICT (more on this technology below), uncompressed mirrored HDMI, IR routing, RS-232 signal management, scaling and audio matrixing and delay. Each output block on this powerhouse switch contains both a mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT port capable of handling full 18Gbps video signals with HDR metadata, HDMI 2.0, and HDCP 2.2.
This matrix uses our proprietary technology, ICT (Invisible Compression Technology) to pass full 18Gbps, lossless signals over category cable. ICT compresses high bandwidth HDMI signals into a more manageable size to fit through a CAT Cable "pipe". The ICT algorithm can manage all flavors of HDR including 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 as well as signals up to 18Gbps and 4K 60Hz 4:4:4. The architecture of ICT also allows it to be compatible with all chroma subsampling types, color spaces and HDMI Deep Color up to 12 Bit.
"With the all-inclusive nature of the 8x8 HDBaseT matrix, ranging from scaling capability for mixed systems, to the proprietary compression capable of passing 18GB HDR signals, this switch really does it all. Put a 10 year warranty plus full support of controls systems and matrixable audio, and you have an unmatched product."
