Overview

The WyreStorm MX‐0808-4K matrix switcher brings the convenience and reliability of short range HDMI switching to UltraHD 4K with independent AV distribution and control of up to eight UHD 4K or 1080p HD inputs to up to eight UHD or HD outputs over HDMI 1.4, including advanced audio processing, extraction and ARC functionality. 

The MX-0808-4K supports transmissions of uncompressed HD video up to 1080p@60Hz with 36bit Deep Color and full 3D, and 4K resolutions up to 4096x2160p at 30Hz with a 4K subsampling rate of 4:2:0 for support of 4K broadcast standards. 

Including multichannel digital audio and two-way control of source and display devices via RS-232, RS-485 and LAN, the MX-0808-4K also offers manual EDID management for improved communication between HDMI devices and greater compatibility during installation. 

In addition, the MX-0808-4K features enhanced audio capabilities, including ARC (Audio Return Channel) for the capacity to extract digital audio from HDMI transmissions and S/PDIF coaxial and optical outputs for connection to AVR or analogue audio output devices that enable the creation of 16x8 audio matrix systems.  

WyreStorm serial control software also includes advanced audio processing functionality for the adjustment of individual HDMI source audio settings to specific outputs and delay to avoid audio/video synchronization issues.
