Gefen from Core Brands today announced they are already shipping their new EXT-UHD600A-44, a 600 MHz 4×4 HDMI matrix. Compatible with HDMI 2.0 signals (thus, 4K 60 Hz at 4:4:4 Chroma subsampling at 10 bit color) with HDR (High Dynamic Range) and HDCP 2.2 support.
Compatible with resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 60 frames per-second (fps) without subsampling color, the EXT-UHD600A-44 can downscale a 4K signal to 1080p and upscale HD signals to 4K.
Gefen says the EXT-UHD600A-44 includes an API that give the user access to data for both controlling and monitoring systems and it’s designed to work with the Gefen Syner-G software to simplify initial IP configuration and EDID Management. The EXT-UHD600A-44 also features Long Range Power (LRP) that eliminates the need for installers to use an external power supply when using a compatible extender to increase the matrix’s output beyond an HDMI cable’s limits. Finally, to address the use of streaming sources, it also includes two USB power ports.
