Gefen Shipping 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 8×8 Matrix

Gefen from Core Brands today announced that it is now shipping the new 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 8×8 Matrix for HDMI, which supports 18.2 Gbps of bandwidth and 600 MHz TMDS Clock frequency.

Capable of handling the HDMI 2.0 standard, the 4K Ultra HD 600 MHz 8×8 Matrix routes eight 4K sources to eight 4K displays, and supports resolutions up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096×2160 up to 60 Hz, 4:4:4), 4K Ultra HD (3860×2160 up to 60 Hz, 4:4:4) with HDR, 1080p Full HD, and WUXGA (1920×1200). It also supports HDCP 2.2 and 1.4, 3DTV pass-through and Lip Sync pass-through.

In addition, the Matrix features analog and digital audio outputs that break out the audio stream (two channel analog, two channel PCM, and up to 5.1 channel Bitstream) from each HDMI source, allowing the de-embedded audio content to be sent to external amplifiers and music distribution systems for added impact in bars, restaurants, clubs, etc.

Digital audio is passed through, including 7.1 channels of LPCM and HBR (High Bit Rate) digital audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS:X and DTSHD Master Audio.

Gefen EXT-UHD-600A-88 matrix is housed in a 2U tall, rack mountable enclosure that can also be placed on a shelf. Here are all the tech specs.
