Chicago-based Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, aims to make it easy to share and manage 4K video and stereo audio from multiple HDMI sources with its new matrix switches.
Tripp Lite’s B302-series Matrix Switch/Splitters with Audio Extractor, Multi-Resolution Support, and IP Access connect HDMI source devices, such as laptops, Blu-ray disc players, and cable/satellite boxes, to multiple HDMI-enabled monitors, televisions, or projectors. Models are available with four HDMI inputs and outputs (4×4) and eight HDMI inputs and outputs (8×8). The same or different content can be shown on connected displays.
The matrix switch/splitters support high dynamic range (HDR) signals and true 4K video resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 60 Hz. Multi-resolution support allows video to be shown at the highest resolution of each individual monitor, rather than the lowest common resolution.
Users can easily switch between connected video sources using the front-panel buttons, the included IR remote, RS-232 serial commands, or control software. The switch/splitters can save up to 12 source/display combinations. For remote access to the software graphical user interface (GUI), users can configure their network to match the switch/splitter’s pre-assigned IP address.
“Matrix switches are flexible solutions because users can mix and match source devices and displays and easily make changes,” says David Posner, vice president, connectivity and peripherals. “Tripp Lite’s new 4K HDMI Matrix Switch/Splitters go a step further with the ability to save source/display settings and remotely access the switches via a connected PC or laptop. The switches are a great solution for installations with HD displays in different areas.”
