4K Ultra HD 8x9 Matrix for HDMI w/ HDCP 2.2, HDBaseT 2.0, and POH

The Gefen 4K Ultra HD 8x9 Matrix for HDMI w/ HDCP 2.2, HDBaseT 2.0, and POH routes eight 4K sources to any combination of nine 4K displays. It features eight HDMI inputs, one HDMI output for local viewing/monitoring, and eight HDBaseT™ 2.0 outputs. The matrix comes in a rack-mountable enclosure with detachable rack-ears for shelf-top placement. Low profile, surface-mountable Receiver units fit in tight places and accommodate Gefen locking HDMI cables for secure connections. 

HDBaseT Support

The HDBaseT™ 2.0 outputs extend AV and controls up to 100m at 4K to eight receivers installed at remote viewing locations. Gefen’s implementation of the new HDBaseT 2.0 Colligo™ platform ensures an even more robust and resilient connection than the industry standard HDBaseT™. HDBaseT™ extension between the matrix and the eight included receivers supports HDMI, 2-way IR, RS-232, and Ethernet. IR from viewing locations to the sources can be routed independent from video if need be. POH (Power Over HDBaseT™) technology provides power to the receiver units and other POH-class-compliant devices, using the same CAT-5 cable that extends the HDMI and control signals.

Video Support

Resolutions up to 4K Cinema-DCI (4096 x 2160 at 24 or 30 Hz 4:4:4) and 4K Ultra HD (3860 x 2160 at 60 Hz, 4:2:0 or 30Hz 4:4:4) are supported. The Gefen 8x9 Matrix also supports 1080p Full HD, 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), 3DTV, and Deep Color (up to 1080p resolution)and is compliant with the latest HDCP 2.2 protocol as well as HDCP 1.4.

Audio Support

The GEF-UHD-89-HBT2 supports Stereo and Multichannel digital audio including 7.1 channels of LPCM as well as High Bit Rate (HBR) digital audio formats such as Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Syner-G™ Support

The Gefen Syner-G™ software’s Discovery and Show-Me features simplify initial IP configuration. This matrix can be controlled via front panel buttons, a handheld IR remote, electrical IR, RS-232, Telnet, UDP, and Gefen’s intuitive and user-friendly web server interface. An easy-to-read, super-bright OLED front panel display indicates routing status and IP settings.
