8x8 HDBaseT™ CSC ARC Matrix - 70m

The HMXL88ARC HDBaseT™ Matrix delivers new levels of advanced audio integration into our Essential range of 4K video matrix solutions. The HMXL88ARC is an 8x8 HDMI 2.0 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 matrix that uses CSC (Color Space Conversion) technology to deliver 18Gbps HDMI over distances of up to 40m (1080p to 70m).

The HMXL88ARC features enhanced audio routing via an integrated 26x8 audio matrix. This enables the audio both from displays and sources, to be embedded and routed through the system at the users discretion.

The HMXL88ARC includes a simultaneous HDBaseT™ / HDMI output on output 1, video smart scaling on all HDBaseT™ outputs, and PoC (Power over Cable) to the remote RX70CS HDBaseT™ receivers. A in-built web browser interface for configuration and control of the Matrix, along with RS-232 and IR pass-through to enable seamless 3rd party control integration.
