With so many super-cool A/V devices coming out, it’s inevitable that you will run out of HDMI ports or may not have ports where you need them. Leaf is providing easy access to additional HDMI devices with a new 6×4 HDMI Matrix Switch. The LTXP64 is now shipping.
The LTXP64 can add six HDMI inputs into your setup — and put those sources into four different zones. Having that middleman shouldn’t take away from the quality of the A/V, either. Leaf says that the LTXP64 can support a full 1080p/60 resolution and 3D, as well as DTS-HD and Dolby Digital audio formats.
Promising a simple setup, the LTXP64 can squeeze into a 1RU rack space. Other features include Leaf’s Zone Lock feature, front-panel controls, support for both IP and RS-232, and Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) software for use with Control4 systems. It can also be combined with Leaf’s LTPTP-F HDBaseT Extender Solution, which can extend those HDMI signals up to 330 feet.
“The development of the 6×4 HDMI Matrix Switch spawned from a critical need for us to build a high-quality solution that could add real value for our dealers and their installations,” said Danny Webb, Leaf’s North American sales and marketing manager. “In your typical installation, a 4×4 solution simply isn’t enough. However, integrators don’t necessarily want to resort to a 6×6 or 8×8 that will unnecessarily inflate their customer’s project budget. With the 6×4, dealers get the unrelenting power and flexibility they need while end-users benefit from a reliable solution at an economical price.”
Leaf has started selling the LTXP64, with an MSRP of $1,999. It’s available through authorized Control4 dealers and directly from Leaf.
