Key Digital Launches HDMI Matrix Switchers With HDBaseT and Support for HDCP2.2, UHD/4K

The new 4K capable KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC Matrix Switchers (with KD-XSWRx Extenders) from Key Digital are compliant with HDCP 2.2 standards and handle 4096×2160 at 24fps (4:2:0 chroma sub-sampling). With KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC every input can be routed to a separate output set which consists of an HDMI and an HDBaseT output, both of which can be simultaneously active and mirror each other’s output, allowing for support for up to 16 TVs (eight mirrored). Using HDBaseT technology, the outputs can carry video, audio, and control signals over longer distances than HDMI based system. With HDBaseT integrators benefit from long signal extensions — up to 250 feet at 1080p/60, 1080p/24, 1080i, 720p or up to 150 feet at 4K/Ultra HD with KD-XSWRx extenders and approved Key Digital CAT5e/6 cabling.

Using Key Digital’s built-in Compass Control, the KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC systems have the ability to negate the need for an external master controller. KD-Pro6x6CC contains 27 control ports, and KD-Pro8x8CC contains 33 control ports. End-users have the option to use the Enterprise Software License for Compass Control (sold separately) on their iOS or Android devices. Compass Control is Key Digital’s fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS & Android devices to replace traditional control interfaces.
