Visitors attending InfoComm13 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, June 8-14, will be treated to a unique demo at the Lightware U.S.A. booth #4180 where they will witness live matrix switching of 4K HDMI 1.4 sources on a 4K monitor. The demo will spotlight Lightware's MX-3D-HDMI-IB input board and MX-3D-HDMI-OB output board, which provides 8-channels of HDMI 1.4a inputs/outputs and is now shipping. Lightware U.S.A. is the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products.
The impressive demo will likely feature the only working and currently shipping 4K matrix switcher at InfoComm13 and one of the few 4K and UHD monitors in the industry available today. "It's a very unique solution for the coming wave of 4K and UHD," says Lightware USA's Drew Taylor. "Lightware is ahead of the curve with this technology."
The demonstration will show that instant matrix switching of 4K HDMI 1.4 sources is more than a proof of concept: With Lightware it's a reality and available today.
"The MX-HDMI-3D input and output boards are in stock and available now in the US," Taylor points out. "A lot of our customers are interested in boards that support 4K even if they have no 4K sources now. They want to future-proof their systems for when they go to 4K - at a time when the price point for 4K monitors and sources will have decreased, while some customers in high end applications are already using 4K today."
Lightware's MX-HDMI-3D boards are HDMI 1.4a, DVI and HDCP compliant and supports all 3D formats and 36-bit color depth. The input board is available with audio option connectors: Digital S/PDIF or analog stereo connectors are available for advanced audio functions. Audio can be embedded or de-embedded on the input or output board of the Matrix. Advanced professional functions, such as HDCP enable/disable mode, Pixel Accurate Reclocking, Advanced EDID Management and Input Signal Frame Detector, are integrated and provide the highest level of technical capabilities, signal quality and system integrity.
