HDBaseT Compatibility Mode (HDBT-C) - This AVPro Edge technology converts high bandwidth signals from 18Gbps to 10.2Gbps. The conversion uses a proprietary algorithm that impacts the original image as little as possible so you can transmit high bandwidth signals over long distances to displays that don't support 18Gbps. HDBT-C is managed on a per-output basis, so you have complete control over what individual runs are "down-clocked."
4K Up/Down Scaling - Like other AVPro Edge Matrix Switchers, this unit has scalers built-in on each of its outputs. With this scaler, you can upscale an HDMI output from 1080p to 4K. With the HDBaseT outputs, you can scale from 4K >1080p for HDBaseT compatibility when using 3rd party HDMI extenders. There is a limitation to scaling with this unit: you cannot downscale on the HDMI outputs, and you cannot upscale on the HDBaseT outputs.
Extreme 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 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:
- The user can extract 2 Channel PCM audio from each output (Balanced 5-Pin Terminal Block, pre-made conversion to L/R cables available). NOTE: The Analog Port only supports 2CH PCM - for down-mixing, check out AC-AVDM-AUHD or our AXION line of matrix switchers.
- It features four digital optical Toslink outputs supporting 7CH LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital +, DTS, and DTS Master Audio.
- Extracted audio routing options include
- Bind to output (extracted audio switches with the video, this is the default mode)
- Bind to input (extracted audio is fixed to the corresponding input by the same number)
- Independent (extracted audio can be routed however you like, and there are commands to allow it to function as a separate matrix)
Audio Delay - With the AC-MX-44, you can manage audio delay on the balanced or digital outputs per output. The audio delay features up to 630ms, so your lip sync problems vanish. Audio delay can be managed directly from the front panel for ease of use and simple setup with the push of a button.
Built-in Test Pattern - The unit features an internal test pattern per output that can be initialized to verify that the infrastructure after the Matrix is intact. Test patterns save hours of painful troubleshooting and allow you to identify problems before they become problems.
Easier Installation - With the AVPro Edge User Interface, many easily accessible tools are available inside our web-based user interface. Installers of all experience levels can fully deploy large video distribution systems more effortlessly than ever before. Companies will do more jobs and increase profits by finishing installs quicker and saving experienced technicians time and energy to direct towards new installations.
Identify Issues Before Leaving the Job Site - The AVPro Edge User Interface allows integrators to follow up and check each video signal's health. If there is an issue, integrators can use the HDMI and HDBaseT diagnosis tools to narrow down if there is an issue with the cabling, EDID, or resolutions. Integrators can leave a site confident that they won't have to be back while conveying an expert installation to their clients and earning more money. Ensure integrator technicians are working on new installs and not just fixing systems that should already be wrapped up.
Built-In Simple Video Switching Control - With Admin control, integrators can set up a user with limited access to the User Interface. This feature is perfect for smaller bars and restaurants that need to have their staff control straightforward source switching without having access to the entire setup, diagnostics commands, or volume controls. In some instances, this can help integrators work around some clients budget restraints, gaining installations they might not have won without the flexibility AVPro Edge products provide.
