With a compact design and inexpensive price tag, the new HDR8X8LP provides top-quality HDMI matrix switching functions with eight HDMI inputs and eight HDMI outputs. Never before has such a powerful piece of hardware delivered higher functionality in a device this small and cost-effective. End users and systems architects alike will appreciate the user-friendly operation this space-saving device delivers, and the low price makes it even more attractive.

The HDR8X8LP provides HDMI output up to 40 feet with HDTV resolutions of 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. The matrix works with Blu-ray players, PCs, cable and satellite boxes, and other devices with an HDMI output. This affordable video matrix takes up just a single rack unit, making it easy to implement in a wide variety of environments.

Users can switch to any source locally via an RS-232 connection. The matrix can be controlled by Windows-based software that is easy to understand and simple to use – a cornerstone of all SmartAVI products. The matrix can also be switched remotely over the Internet with a version of the device that features an internal network.

“The HDR8X8LP shows our continued dedication to offering professional A/V products at a discount,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “Our customers appreciate the quality and aggressively-priced solutions we offer, and this new HDMI matrix switch exemplifies that.”
