It is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports video resolutions up to 4K2K@60Hz, 4:4:4 and multi-channel digital audio. Designed for mid-scale applications, such as multi-zone home theaters, houses of worship, and medical imaging, the HDMI 2.0 matrix can be easily controlled through the front panel buttons, IR, RS-232, Telnet and Web GUI, or custom drivers to control with any third-party integration system, such as Savant, Control4, Crestron, and many others.
