HDBaseT Compatibility Mode (HDBT-C) -This EXCLUSIVE AVPro Edge technology allows you to convert high bandwidth signals that are between 9Gbps - 18Gbps like UHD Players, HDR Content, Gaming Systems, PC's, and Media Players. The conversion uses a proprietary algorithm that impacts the original image as little as possible so you can transmit your HDR and high bandwidth signals over long-distance transmission to a display that supports 4K but does not support 18Gbps. Best of all, this is managed on a per output basis, so you have complete control over what individual runs are "down-clocked."
ICT Technology on the HDBaseT Outputs - ICT (Invisible Compression Technology) is a revolution in HDMI extension technology. This proprietary technology can compress high bandwidth HDMI signals into a more manageable size to fit through a CAT Cable "pipe." The ICT algorithm can manage all flavors of HDR including 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0 as well as signals up to 18Gbps and 4K 60Hz 4:4:4. The architecture of ICT allows it to be compatible with all chroma subsampling types, color spaces and HDMI Deep Color up to 12 Bit. Our technology is unique because it is truly invisible. It is not only invisible to the human eye, but also to HDMI test gear and other sink devices, what comes in is what goes out. What makes ICT special is that we preserve HDR Metadata and color information and depth in its full, original, integrity. Other compression technologies sacrifice these to save space and it will cause very visible banding, color shifting and motion artifacts in the image.
This technology is backed by extensive testing in side-by-side comparisons of ICT vs. directly connected sources. The setup is two identical displays and a single source. The source is split and sent to both displays, one using ICT and one with an 18Gbps cable. The movie is shown in HDR and evaluators are brought in to determine which one is compressed. The results are conclusive, it is invisible. Even to the most trained eye.
4K Up/Down Scaling - Like other AVPro Edge Matrix Switchers this unit comes with scalers built-in on each of its outputs. With this scaler you can upscale an HDMI output from 1080p > 4K. With the HDBaseT outputs, you can scale from 4K >1080p for HDBaseT compatibility when using 3rd party HDMI extenders. There is a limitation to scaling with this unit, you are not able to downscale on the HDMI outputs, and you are not able to upscale on the HDBaseT outputs.
Extreme EDID Management - With 29 on-board EDID's, including HDR EDID's, not getting a picture is simply a thing of the past. You can manage the input side of the switch by selecting a preloaded EDID. We also can INSTANTLY read an EDID from any connected display and apply it to the desired input, all with the push of a button. Goodbye EDID problems...
Dual Audio De-Embedding - Our unique Audio De-Embedding allows:
Audio Delay -With the AC-MX-88HDBT you can manage audio delay on the balanced or digital outputs per output. This features up to 630ms of delay, so your lip sync problems vanish. Audio delay can be managed directly from the front panel for ease of use and simple setup with the push of a button.
Built-in Test Pattern - The unit features an internal test pattern that can be initialized to verify that the infrastructure after the matrix is intact. This saves hours of painful troubleshooting and allows you to identify problems before they become problems. The pattern is per output.
