November 17, 2016
Lightware introduces the new MX2 Matrix Series. With full 4K @ 60Hz 4:4:4 and HDMI 2.0, the 8×8 matrix is the first of the new Lightware MX2 standalone matrix switcher series with HDMI 2.0 that supports uncompromised 4K UHD resolutions at 60Hz 4:4:4.
Recommended applications include offices and meeting rooms, for 4K live events, and for future-proofing operation centres. Being silent and compact, the MX2-8×8-HDMI20-Audio integrates easily into any environment and is a good choice even for home theatre enthusiasts insistent on quality along with HDMI 2.0 and 4K @ 60Hz video signals.
The device also allows you to split a 60Hz 4K video signal into left and right halves, transmitted as an 18Gbps HDMI 2.0 signal over two HDMI 1.4-compliant links. The two halves can be recombined at the signal destination. It can also handle chroma subsampling transforming 4K UHD signals to YCbCr 4:2:0.
