Key Digital’s Video Matrix with Audio DSP an All-in-One Solution for Commercial Video Distribution
MOUNT VERNON, NY – July 10, 2017 – The award winning manufacturer of professional AV and control systems introduces the KD-Pro8x8D professional Matrix Switcher and Audio DSP with six standard-range and two long-range HDBaseT receivers. This versatile matrix switcher is 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. This Key Digital video matrix also includes the ability to support Ultra HD/4K video resolutions up to 4096 x 2160/24 critical viewing.
KD-PRO8x8D features audio de-embedding with DSP control per output. Analog L/R balanced/unbalanced and a coax digital output the audio from the selected audio source. Variable control of volume, muting, base, mid, treble, and lip-sync delay enable the outputs to feed immediately into amplifiers or distributed audio systems. Lossless compressed digital audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio are passed through the HDMI connections.
Each video source may be routed to a separate output set consisting of an HDMI and an HDBaseT transmitter. Both output connections are simultaneously active, allowing for support for up to 16 displays (8 mirrored). Using HDBaseT technology, the outputs can carry video, audio, and control signals over longer distances than traditional HDMI based wiring. The six standard range receive units (model KD-X88SGRx) extend UHD/4K signals up to 200ft at 1080p/60and up to 125ft at 4096x2160/60 [4:4:4]. The two long range receive units (model KD-X88LGRx) extend UHD/4K signals up to 500ft at 1080p/60and up to 300ft at 4096x2160/60 [4:4:4]. All HDBaseT receivers are powered at the matrix.
KD-Pro8x8D features 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. This matrix switcher delivers the highest possible support across both of these highly sought after features.
Using Key Digital's built-in Compass Control system, the KD-Pro8x8D negates the need for an external master controller. The KD-Pro8x8D 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.
This product joins a suite of Key Digital IP enabled products that are now app ready. The engineers at Key Digital have created a simple way for installers and users to switch inputs and control Key Digital systems as if you were standing in front of the unit- all from your iOS device. The Key Digital app can be downloaded free from the App Store.
