Extron to Bring New HDMI and DVI Matrix Boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix to CEDIA

Extron is introducing a new range of HDCP-compliant HDMI and DVI matrix boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix, Extron’s modular, field-configurable matrix switching platform. These new matrix boards, available in I/O sizes from 4×4 to 8×8, bring the total number of SMX matrix boards to 35, covering all common analog and digital A/V signal types from composite video and wideband RGB to 3G-SDI, DVI, and HDMI, as well as stereo audio. The SMX System MultiMatrix is especially suited for a wide variety of residential entertainment and media distribution applications where multiple signal types, such as high-definition and standard definition video, computer-video from game consoles or media center PCs, and stereo audio, must be routed to different rooms or zones.

The SMX HDMI Series Matrix Switcher Boards are designed for routing HDMI video signals with embedded audio and control signals. They support computer video to 1920×1200 and HDTV to 1080p at data rates up to 1.65 Gbps. SMX HDMI matrix boards are HDCP-compliant and, like the SMX DVI and DVI Pro matrix boards, provide +5 VDC, 250 mA of power on each output for external peripheral devices. They are available in four I/O sizes: 4×4, 4×8, 8×4, and 8×8.
