The KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X from Key Digital Are New Entry-Priced 4K/18G HDMI DAs

Key Digital Systems just introduced the KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X, two cost effective distribution amplifiers that offer resolution support up to UHD 4K60 4:4:4 (signals up to 18Gbps bandwidth). KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X provide one HDMI input to two or four HDMI outputs, respectively, and say they were designed for smaller cost-conscious installs.

The KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X enables a single video source to be displayed on multiple video displays while L/R analog and TOSlink Optical audio de-embed ports provide an external audio signal of the connected source so it may be fed into amplifiers, distributed audio systems, and digital audio sound bars.

Both of these impressive distribution amplifiers will support all SD, HD, and VESA (VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA, SXGA, UXGA) up to 4096x2160p and Ultra HD/4K video standards including Ultra HD/4K support at 4096×2160 or 3840×2160 24/25/30/60hz at 4:4:4 and support of HDR10 (High Dynamic Range) to provide more life-like images through a greater range of luminance levels, with deep color support up to UHD/4K 30Hz 4:4:4/12 bits or 60Hz 4:4:4/8 bit.

The KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X are licensed and compatible with support of HDCP 2.2 and have HDR header information included in the 4K EDID handshakes. The KD-DA1x2X and KD-DA1x4X provide EDID management options, with a built-in internal library with 15 EDID handshakes including 4K with HDR in addition to native EDID data copied from a connected output/display.

Supported lossless compressed digital audio include Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby Atmos.

Here are all the specs.
