The Absolute Acoustics® NDS-UHM44 is a HDMI/HDBaseT™ matrix switcher with 4 inputs and 4 outputs capable of transmitting audio, video, control signals and electrical power supply for distances up to 100m over a single twisted-pair cable. Its unique hybrid architecture combines 4 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI output and 3 HDBaseT™ outputs in a compact 1U chassis.
With a range of exclusive technologies, UHM44 offers advanced features for distributing HDMI signals, such as native support for UHD/4K resolutions, high definition audio formats, and compliance with the new HDCP 2.2 copy protection standard, making it perfect for deployment of multimedia distribution systems in residential or corporate environments. Additionally, each of the output zones of UHM44 have HDMI audio breakout, extracting the digital audio contained in the HDMI signal into a pair of RCA connectors, and extension ports for IR and RS232, leading control signals to the remote zone. Enhancing flexibility, the last output of UHM44 is equipped with MultiRange technology, which enables transmission of HDBaseT™ signals for both 70m or 100m, depending on the chosen receiver.
UHM44 can be controlled manually via buttons on its front panel, or remotely by sending IR or RS232 codes. When connected to an Ethernet network, it can also be controlled over Telnet protocol, or through its web interface - which also works as a easy way to perform all settings. And further expanding the range of features, UHM44 can act as an automation hub, forwarding commands received on its control ports via RS232 (Serial Bridge) or HDMI-CEC (CEC Bridge) to the devices connected to the remote receivers.
