Key Digital Launches HDMI Matrix Switchers with HDBaseT Output and Support of HDCP 2.2, UHD/4K

Key Digital just introduced the KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC matrix switchers with KD-XSWRx extenders. These matrix switchers are compliant with HDCP2.2 standards and support resolutions up to 4096×2160 @24fps (4:4:4 chroma sampling).

With KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC every input can be routed to a separate output set which consists of an HDMI and an HDBaseT output, both of which can be simultaneously active and mirror each other’s output, allowing for support for up to 16 TVs (eight mirrored). Using HDBaseT technology, the outputs can carry video, audio and control signals over longer distances than HDMI based system. With HDBaseT 4K can be sent up to 250 feet at 1080p/60, 1080p/24, 1080i, 720p or up to 150 feet at 4K/Ultra HD with KD-XSWRx extenders. The KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC both support of HDR (High Dynamic Range) video.

The KD-Pro6x6CC contains 27 control ports, and KD-Pro8x8CC contains 33 control ports.
