What does this mean

  • HDCP 2.2 –When you’re looking to purchase a 4K Ultra High Definition TV you will have noticed references to HDCP 2.2, if you use devices that support HDCP 2.2 these will be far more likely to be compatible with current and future 4K content. Best advice would be to plan for the future, with many new 4K products expected to flood the market, all of the source will have HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, a copy prevention technology) If you attempt to connect one of them to a 4K TV that doesn’t support HDCP 2.2, you won’t see a 4K picture. Unfortunately the HDCP 2.2 issue doesn’t just apply to Ultra High Definition TVs and video sources — it affects any other components in the signal chain. If you run your HDMI connection through a home theatre receiver or sound bar, it will need to be HDCP 2.2 compliant, as well. Any device in the chain that prevents the HDCP digital handshake from happening will prevent you from seeing a 4K image.
  • Web GUI –Configuration of the Matrix has been made even easier with the addition of the Web browser interface for control and configuration.
  • Line Level Control– The addition of this new feature allows you to switch between multiple audio sources and adjust the volume per device/source.

If you need to allow four independent zones to all have access to four remotely located source devices at any one time, then the BluStream HMXL44Kit-V2 4×4 Matrix Kit is your perfect solution

Taking only 1U in a 19″ racking unit, the Blustream HMXL44Kit-V2 4×4 Matrix Kit ticks all of the boxes for a space efficient, cost effective solution for the distribution of HDMI from four source devices, for example Sky Boxes, Blu-ray Players, Gaming Systems, Apple TVs and many more to four, TV- Display units. Allowing any device to access any source independently.

The matrix features Bi-Directional IR control and PoH, therefore no additional power supplies are required at the receiver, as the power can be passed along the Cat cable for up to 70 metres (1080p, 4K 40 metres). On the back of the unit there are Zone specific bi-directional RS232 ports for connection to PC or control processor to control RS232 devices in the rooms via the HDbaseT room receivers.

The matrix can be controlled via the buttons on the front of the unit, via an iPad or other smart device or by the simple and easy to use remote. With easy Input and Output selection of 1-4 zones. For example:To switch source 2 to zone 4 you would press 4 in the output section (A) followed by pressing 2 in the Input section (B). ALL button: The all button selects all the inputs or outputs in its corresponding box. Example: (The “All” button in the Output box selects all the zones so all zones will change to what source input is selected next) pTp: This button will align all the zone outputs with the like numbered source inputs. Example: Input 1 to output 1, input 2 to output 2, etc.

On the front of the matrix unit is a neat LCD display window. from here you can identify the three EDID segments,ensuring all of your source devices are correctly identified. EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is a data structure that is used between a display and a source. This data is used by the source to find out what audio and video resolutions are supported by the display then from this information the source will determine what the best resolution is to output. While the objective of EDID is to make connecting a digital display to a source a simple plug and play procedure issues do arise when multiple displays or video matrix switching is introduced because of the increased number of variables. By pre-determining the video resolution and audio format of the source and display device we can remove the need for EDID hand shaking thus making switching quicker and more reliable.

The slimline receivers can be discreetly installed behind the TV, at only 26mm deep there no problems with bulky receiver boxes to hide. Once installed set up could not be easier, just download the software to your PC from the Drivers & Protocols file then simply commence the recognition process.
