The HDMMX Modular Matrix Series Switchers provide 4K UHD video streaming and transmission up to 10.2 Gbps, according to KanexPro. And the switchers are available in four configurable frames for I/O sizes: 8x8, 16x16, 32x32, and 64x64.
“Our dealers, end users and consultants alike have been telling us they need a more flexible and ultra-reliable solution for mission critical applications. The 4K UHD MMX modular switching line provides a wide range of interchangeable components ensuring that each system is right-sized for the application," Matthew Bute, vice president of sales and marketing for KanexPro, said in a statement. "HDMMX interchangeable cards and boxes give integrators and their clients the flexibility to expand the system by simply adding the input or output cards as needed.”
KanexPro explained that the 4K UHD HDMMX switches can be controlled via IR, RS232, or TCP/IP connections, and they offer a variety of sizes based on application need:
