The Absolute Acoustics® NDS-UM88 is a HDMI/HDMI matrix switcher with 8 inputs and 8 outputs capable of transmitting audio, video, and control signals from any source to any display. As an exclusive feature, UM88 extracts digital audio from each HDMI input, for direct connection with audio distribution systems.
With a range of exclusive technologies, UM88 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 the deployment of multimedia distribution systems in residential or corporate environments. Additionally, all inputs and two output zones of UM88 have HDMI audio breakout, extracting the digital audio contained in the HDMI signal into a pair of RCA connectors.
UM88 can be controlled manually through front panel buttons 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 an easy way to perform all settings. And further expanding the range of features, UM88 can act as an automation hub, forwarding commands received on its control ports via HDMI-CEC to devices connected on each of its outputs.
