MX8x8HDMI‑Pro is full of features and it is a reliable choice for HDMI signal routing. It supports DVI 1.0, HDCP 1.2 and even HDMI 1.3 deep color standards. This high performance routing switcher offers eight inputs and eight outputs with HDMI connectors. The built‑in sophisticated software and hardware features turn this router into the most flexible integrated solution for AV professionals and high end home theatre applications. Any input can be switched to any one or more outputs without switching delay or frame latency. Supporting HDMI1.3 36 bit deep color standard, it can be connected to Blu-Ray players, set top boxes, AV receivers or Apple TV.

Advanced HD audio transmission and sample rate conversion assures compatibility with previous generation products while also handling the finest Dolby TrueHD and DTS‑HD formats. DVI, HDMI and HDCP signals can be seamlessly integrated in any AV system using the MX8x8HDMI‑Pro.

All inputs are equalized and reclocked for up to 60 meters of DVI copper cable, and all outputs of the matrix router are reclocked for stable, jitter free signal transmission. The unit can be controlled either via the RS‑232 / RS‑422 port, TCP/IP LAN connection or through the built‑in website.

Built-in oscilloscope function

Lightware’s input signal analyzer function makes possible to determine
the exact video format that is sent by the source, thus helps to identify
many problems. For example the actual timing parameters may differ
from the expected and this may cause some displays to drop the
The signal analyzer measures the detailed timings on the matrices’
incoming video signals just like a built-in oscilloscope, but it is much
more easy to use. The parameters are displayed on an intuitive
graphical interface.
