Gefen has just announced its so-called “next generation” matrix switcher: the EXT-UHD-88 spec’d as a 4K capable 8×8 Matrix for HDMI w/ HDCP 2.2. Gefen specs it at resolutions of up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096×2160 at 24 or 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3860×2160 at 60 Hz, 4:2:0 or 30Hz 4:4:4) and says that it’s compliant with HDCP 2.2 protocol as well as legacy HDCP 1.4.
The new matrix has been designed for use with the Gefen Syner-G software which allows for Discovery and Show Me features that automatically detect all installed units on a Local Area Network and configure their IP settings.
This product also features a web-served interface. In addition to basic end-user controls such as routing sources to displays, this powerful interface possesses the ability to upload, download and save EDID information from any connected display to the internal memory. These EDIDs can then be made available to any of the connected sources. In addition to the web interface, other control options include front-panel buttons, IR remote, RS-232, Telnet and UDP.
The EXT-UHD-88 lists for $3999 and here are all the detailed specs.
