Key Digital introduces the KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC Matrix Switchers with KD-XSWRxExtenders. The matrix switchers are compliant with HDCP2.2 standards, enabling distribution of encrypted content from popular playback devices like 4K set top boxes, UHD Blu-ray disc players, and 4K streaming players. The devices also include the ability to support Ultra HD/4K: Video resolution of 4096 x 2160/24 and are supported for UHD capable TVs.
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 TV's (8 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.
The KD-Pro6x6CC and KD-Pro8x8CC feature support of HDR (High Dynamic Range) video which allows users to experience more life-like images through a greater range of luminance levels. Key Digital’s HDR delivery is handled as part of their proprietary full-buffer technology (FBT). Studies have concluded that viewers prefer video signals with more contrast ratio vs higher resolution. These matrix switchers deliver the highest possible support across both of these highly sought after features.
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. Compass Control instantly integrates components from Compass Alliance Partners to create a simple plug and play system. Key Digitals’ control drivers and pre-configured GUI templates for partner products lend to streamlined system development and reduced programming time. Partnering with Lutron, Leviton, Honeywell, KNX, and many additional industry leaders enable Compass Control to be the most modern and cost-effective control system available.
