The AC-MX-42 is a 4x2 HDMI matrix
switch. Supporting HDMI 2.0(a/b), HDCP 2.3, up to 4K video resolution, and up
to 18Gbps bandwidth. This switch allows any source (Blu-ray, satellite
receiver, game consoles, PCs, etc. ) to show on any connected displays. In
addition, this matrix equalizes and amplifies the output to ensure the HDMI
signal will transmit through long HDMI cables without loss of quality.
The AC-MX-42 is ideal for bypassing AVRs that do
not support full 18Gbps. Instead of bottlenecking video quality through a
legacy audio device that can’t handle 18Gbps. Integrators can run down-scaled
video to a legacy audio device and send uncompressed HDMI to the display. Audio
remains untouched on a down-scaled output, making it an ideal component for systems
where high bit rate audio is critical.
KEY BENEFITS OF USING THE AC-MX-42
for overcoming AVR problems ~ In today’s fast-moving, high-bandwidth video
market, there is often a need to send high bit rate, bitstream audio into AVR’s
to take advantage of audio advances like Dolby Atmos or DTS-X. While especially
well suited for audio, AVRs lack the robust ability to manage high-bandwidth
HDR video. The AC-MX-42 allows integrators to bypass AVRs and send uncompressed
video signals to displays or projectors. Integrators can then down-scale the
other AV stream to a lower bandwidth video while maintaining the original
untouched audio codecs, making the AC-MX-42 ideal for sending this second HDMI
signal into an AVR and then on to a surround sound system.
Auto-Switching ~ Ideally suited for environments where integrators
want the matrix switcher to switch to the active input or activate when a user
plugs in a device. Additionally, this unit is ideally suited to manage “bring
your own device” type of environments.
The auto-switching mode can be configured:
outputs auto-switch together
one output auto-switches.
- In either mode, HDMI output 1 can be down-scaled to accommodate a
room where one device is 1080P and another is 4K.
4K Up/Down Scaling ~ Up and downscaling technology is managed on HDMI
output 1. Scaling will allow integrators to downscale 4K sources to1080p, eliminating
the problem that other matrixes have that forces them to “dumb down” the entire
system even if there is only one old 1080P display.
EDID Management ~ With 29 onboard EDIDs, including HDR EDIDs, not
getting a picture is simply a thing of the past. You can manage the input side
of the switch by selecting a preloaded EDID. We also can instantly read an EDID
from any connected display and apply it to the desired input, all with the push
of a button. Goodbye, EDID problems.
Dual Audio De-Embedding ~ Our unique Audio De-Embedding allows:
user can extract 2 Channel audio from the L/R Ports. NOTE: the Analog Port
only supports 2CH PCM - for down-mixing, check out AC-AVDM-AUHD or
features a digital optical Toslink output for 7CH LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby
Digital +, DTS, DTS Master Audio.
audio routing is bound to the output of your choosing (extracted audio
switches with the video)
