48Gbps 1x8 HDMI Distribution Amplifier

Description

The AVPro Edge AC-DA-18X2 is a one-input to eight-output, 48 Gbps HDMI 2.1b distribution amplifier that flawlessly divides incoming HDMI signals up to 8K/60 fps into eight separate output streams.

Though designed as a next-gen 48 Gbps device, this does not preclude using the AC-DA-18X2 for large legacy system applications where installation stumbling blocks may be immediately remedied. Generationally dated but functioning displays intersecting in systems with overlapping HDMI and HDCP versions can handcuff a system into resolution downscaling all displays for compatibility. The AC-DA-18X2 enables mixed-display systems to coexist at their native rates, with plenty of available dynamic headroom.

An AC-DA-18X2 output may be scaled to provide a 3D immersive audio format signal to a decoding audio playback device still viable for that purpose, though dated for video signal passthrough, allowing the AVR or Pre-processor to remain operational for as long as required.

48 Gbps Support (8K FLR 6) - Full 8K bandwidth extension (select 10K FRL 3, FRL 4, and FRL 5 resolutions are supported). Available dynamic range headroom for any 8K source. 

 

Downscaling – Each HDMI output may configured for downscaling. An 8K signal may be downscaled to 4K or 1080p, while 4K content may be downscaled to 1080p for systems with legacy display technology. 

 

Extracted Audio – Multi-channel digital audio up to 7.1 may be intercepted from the HDMI stream and output via TOSLINK. 2-channel Analog audio may be output via the 5-pin balanced terminal block; however, note that the source must originate as 2-channel PCM.   

 

Fixed FRL Rate – The FRL rate may be set to a fixed rate in the front panel menu or via the device API. First-generation new technology displays may not be able to contend with higher bandwidth signals as later models can. Limiting the signal bandwidth to first-gen models in mixed systems maintains system stability. 

 

Extended EDID Management – The AC-DA-18X2 features 20 pre-configured EDID slots, including support for FRL Lanes 3 through 6 and three User EDID slots. HF-EEODB (HDMI Forum EDID Extension Override Data Block) is also supported. HF-EEODB is used to optionally expose an extension count different than the base block claims, revealing more EDID data. Our deep-look, 4-Block EDID Support analyzes up to 512 bytes of EDID data to ensure HDMI handshake and HDCP compatibility with the latest next-gen displays, which have massive amounts of EDID data.  

 

Gaming-Focused HDMI 2.1b Features – Quick Media Switching for multimedia use is based on Variable Refresh Rate technology, developed to ensure smooth gameplay from PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC games. VRR reduces or eliminates artifacts such as image tearing (like tearing a piece of paper), and judder (slow “camera” pans that should be smooth but instead abruptly stutter).

 

USB Command List Control – The front panel USB-C port enables Windows Input and Output command setup control, assisted by MyUart (available for free download).
