The OPUS-RX41 includes a few features designed specifically for residential and light commercial deployments.

EDID management, selectable 4K to 1080p downscaling, and HDCP 2.2 support with selectable down-conversion to HDCP 1.4 ensure compatibility with legacy HD displays. Remote power allows the device to be powered by an Opus matrix switcher, for convenient installation at a display or projector without a local power supply.
