Lightware MX8x8HDMI-Pro

The MX8x8HDMI-Pro digital video router/matrix switch is the most advanced HDMI router that supports DVI 1.0 HDCP 1.2 and HDMI 1.3 deep colour standards. This high performance routing switcher that offers 8 inputs and 8 outputs with HDMI connectors. The built-in sophisticated software and hardware features make the router the most flexible and integrated solution for AV professionals and high end home theatre applications. Any input can be switched to any individual, group or all outputs without switching delay or frame latency. Supporting the latest HDMI 1.3 36 bit deep colour standard, it can be connected even to the latest BluRay players, set top boxes, AV receivers or Apple TV. Advanced HD audio transmission and sample rate conversion proves the compatibility with old stuff whilst handling the finest Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD formats as well. DVI, HDMI and HDCP signals can be seamlessly integrated in any AV system using Lightware MX8x8HDMI-Pro.

All inputs are equalized and reclocked for up to 60 meter long DVI copper cable, and all outputs of the matrix router are reclocked for stable, jitter free signal transmission. The unit can be controlled either by RS-232 / RS-422 port or TCP/IP LAN connection or by built-in website.
