Sommer Cable announces 4K signal matrix
Sommer Cable has announced the Cardinal DVM 4K signal matrix for modular UHD signal management.
DVM-HDBT-M-F16 enables flexible in- and output configurations. It has 16 slots for input and output cards, 12 of which can be used either as inputs or outputs and another 4 as outputs. All matrix combinations can be realised from 1x15 to 12x4.
Sommer Cable offers different expansion cards for the system. The three input cards with HDMI, VGA and HDBaseT interface feature a built-in scaler, EDID management and an analogue audio input. The two output cards with HDMI and HDBaseT interface are equipped with an extra analogue audio output. The HDBaseT cards also offer RS232 and infrared interfaces and provide the intelligent PoH power supply to the transmitter or receiver. HDMI and HDBaseT interfaces support HDMI 2.0 signals with the HDCP 2.2 copy protection standard as well as resolutions up to 4K@60fps. The VGA input card supports up to WUXGA signals at 60fps. Available is also a plain audio card with a microphone input.
The DVM-HDBT-M-F16 4K signal matrix is controlled via touchkeys on the device, via RS232, with the supplied remote as well as through a web-based interface within the TCP/IP network.
