KanexPro Launches 4×4 and 8×8 Matrix Switchers

kanexpro-HDMX44-4K-zoom1-1115KanexPro has two new matrix switchers in the HDMX44-4K and HDMX88-4K, both spec’d to handle switching of 4K/60Hz with HDCP 2.2 — but, buyer beware as they are NOT specifying color bit depth on their spec sheets.

These matrix switchers are available in combinations of 4×4 and 8×8. The 4×4 HDMI matrix switcher includes four inputs and four outputs with audio de-embedding and HDCP 2.2 specs and supported video resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60Hz. The 8×8 version consists of eight inputs and eight outputs with the same specs above (time between switching of less than 0.2 seconds). Control is via RS232, IR and web based GUI using Ethernet allowing integrators to switch, control and matrix directly from a touch panel or computer.

Both HD switchers provide four or eight additional audio ports via S/PDIF connectors to supports de-embedding from HDMI and expedient firmware upgrade through micro USB ports. The switchers transmit 4K x 2K at 60Hz signal up to 15 meters and they are housed in a rack-mountable enclosure.

Here are the detailed specs.
