Key Digital KD-MS4x4G/KD-MS8x8G supports 18Gbps signals, independent audio selection, and app-ready control, showcasing at CEDIA 2018

Mount Vernon, NY, Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOUNT VERNON, NY – September 6, 2018 – Key Digital, the award winning manufacturer of professional A/V and Control Systems introduces KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G 4x4/8x8 4K/18G HDMI matrix switchers, with independent audio switching or de-embedding of balanced/unbalanced and PCM digital audio. With the addition of the KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G Key Digital continues its commitment to beginning-to-end solutions for the audio visual needs of efficient and productive corporate meeting spaces.

KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G supports HDCP 2.2 and all SD, HD, VESA and Ultra HD/4K video standards up to and including UHD/4K 18G 4096x2160 or 3840x2160 24/25/30/60hz at 4:4:4 and 1080p. All UHD/4K EDID handshake files include HDR header information.

The KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G feature HDMI matrix switching for 4/8 HDMI sources to 4/8 HDMI outputs and 4/8 analog and digital audio outputs which may be independently controlled to follow the HDMI output selection or separately switched to accommodate a wide variety of usage applications in professional AV systems integration such as corporate conference rooms, board rooms, huddle spaces, and auditoriums.

The matrix switchers are fully licensed and compatible with HDCP 2.2 and also features support of HDR10 (High Dynamic Range) video which allows users to experience more life-like images through a greater range of luminance levels. Key Digital’s HDR10 delivery is handled as part of their proprietary Full-Buffer Technology (FBT). Studies have concluded that viewers prefer video signals with more contrast ratio vs higher resolution. The KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G deliver the highest possible support across both of these highly sought after features.

Key Digital’s Full Buffer Technology manages TMDS re-clocking and signal re-generation, HDCP authentication to source & display, and EDID handshaking control. Unlike many manufacturers, Key Digital has had EDID control for 10+ years. EDID control has 15 different settings inside the software, many of which are now updated to contain HDR header information in the handshake. HDCP authentication on the HDMI input gives each source the information and file it needs and is 2.2 compliant. Forced Hot Plug Detection enables the integrator or user to choose if the active signal voltage is forced to the connected input device.

KD-MS4x4G and KD-MS8x8G join a suite of Key Digital IP enabled products that are now app ready. The engineers at Key Digital have created an easy way for installers and users to switch inputs and control Key Digital systems as if you were standing in front of the unit- all from your iOS device. The Key Digital app can be downloaded free from the App Store.
