Multiport HDMI and TPS Matrix Switcher
- Bi-directional RS-232 and IR extension (pass-through and control)
- Command injection on RS-232 and IR ports
- Built-in Event Manager automation feature
The MMX6x2-HT220 responds to a need for a practical standalone matrix switcher specifically designed for meeting room and classroom environments. The compact MMX6x2-HT220 has six video inputs (four HDMI 1.4 and two TPS) and two video outputs (two independent HDMI outputs which both have mirrored TPS outputs). 4K@30Hz, 3D capabilities and HDCP are fully supported. The device also has four audio connectors for audio insertion and two audio outputs for de-embedding purposes. These features make this standalone matrix unique on the market.
PoE 48V remote powering is available on every TPS ports for cost-effective installations. MMX6x2-HT220 receives and transmits digital video, audio and control to a distance of up to 170m over a single CATx cable. Using factory, custom or transparent EDID emulation the user can fix and lock EDID data on each input connector. Advanced EDID Management forces the required resolution from any video source and fixes the output format to conform to the system requirements.
The unit offers IR and RS-232 command injection capabilities, providing the ability to send any IR or RS-232 control command directly from the LAN connection to remote end points. The MMX6x2-HT220 is also compatible with both HDBaseT extenders and HDBaseT compliant displays.
The Event Manager feature is all the control you need, already built-in, as it can perform any user-defined action when a change in the device status occurs. To mention a few examples among the many, in case of a status change of a signal appearing on the input, or a change in resolution, the responsive action can be defined by the user to be a crosspoint switch, sending IR or RS-232 commands or changing the volume.
This built-in feature ensures that no additional control is required in simple systems and makes the MMX6x2-HT family the perfect solution in a wide range of applications.
Using the supplied Lightware Device Controller application it is possible to clone configuration settings in a few easy steps and restore them in an unlimited number of other MMX6x2-HT220 devices.
MMX6x2-HT220 has remote powering capabilities on its TPS in- and outputs. This feature allows for remote powering the connected TPS transmitters or receivers using standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology by delivering 48V of DC power over CAT cables, for devices consuming less than 15W of power. Remote powering saves time and money by avoiding the need for separate installation of video and power infrastructures. Powered extenders can be freely placed without a need for AC outlets.
MMX6x2-HT220 enables de-embedding audio and setting volume level on the balanced audio out connectors. This feature makes installations simpler and cost effective as there is no need for an external device for volume and balance adjustment when using active speakers.
