Intelix introduces DIGI-HD-8X8

Middleton, WI- Intelix LLC, U.S. manufacturer of audio/video equipment and software, announced the release of the DIGI-HD-8X8, a professional-grade matrix switcher with eight HDMI inputs, eight HDMI outputs, and eight twisted pair extender outputs. The unit will debut at BICSI in Orlando in booth #1201.

The Intelix DIGI-HD-8X8 combines Intelix’s matrix switching technology with their industry-leading twisted pair extenders, providing an easy-to-use, flexible, and powerful solution for residential, commercial, and digital signage audio-visual applications.

The DIGI-HD-8X8 routes eight HDMI inputs to eight HDMI outputs and eight twisted pair extender outputs, both of which are active simultaneously. When used in conjunction with a compatible Intelix twisted pair receiver, the matrix extends output signals up to 150 feet over standard-grade Cat 5e or Cat 6. Plus, the DIGI-HD-8X8 is the first Intelix matrix to incorporate HDshak processing—revolutionary EDID negotiation technology which ensures source and destination handshaking over twisted pair cable.

In addition to routing audio and video signals, the DIGI-HD-8X8 features eight pass-through IR channels which distribute remote IR commands from in-room controllers over the twisted pair cable and out of the matrix, thereby allowing complete control of source devices connected to the matrix, such as DVD players and receivers.

The DIGI-HD-8X8 supports 1080i and 1080p high-definition video, and is HDMI 1.3b and HDCP compliant. The system provides diagnostics and control via a built-in front panel touch screen or remotely via RS232, IR, Ethernet, or with an included wireless remote control.

Retail price for the DIGI-HD-8X8 matrix is $6,999.95. Compatible receivers begin at $129.95.
