The matrix itself features 8 HDMI inputs all catering for HDMI 2.0a with HDCP2.2. The unit has 8 x HDBaseT 'Lite' outputs (or Class B) on the rear (1-8) and also features 2 x HDMI outputs on 9-10 (which can be cloned to other zones, or be completely independent). This means that the main aspect of displays in a project can be catered for via the HDBaseT outputs (and corresponding RX receivers included in the kit), and AVR's held in the rack or longer runs requiring Class A or Class C extenders can be directly accounted for on the dedicated 2 x HDMI outputs.
This award winning matrix kit features support for HDMI2.0 with HDCP2.2 as standard, meaning it is ideal for a host of medium to large HD distribution projects. It's advanced feature set now also adds in added control options, as alongside the CEC control the Neo8 Professional now also features Amazon Alexa voice control support and also IP control for Satellite and Cable HD services too.
If you are in the know - then you might be thinking that Sky doesn’t support CEC? And you would be correct. However; the magicians at Pulse-Eight have implemented IP control with dynamic forwarding. This means that you can now control Sky via CEC! IP Based Sky HD/Q control is a first for a matrix, and removes the need for any IR control in your system, removing that potentially annoying weak link in your setup for source control.
The concept of an HD matrix with onboard advanced control options over and above standard IR controls now here, as the Neo8 Professional can be simply controlled via the web interface, a dedicated android app (which can be automatically launched with Pulse-Eight's Neo Tap) and as intimated above - your Amazon Echo & Dot products. So alongside a state of the art 4K/UHD matrix switcher - you know also have a control platform in-built for projects that bypass 3rd party control systems.
As with all Pulse-Eight's neo range - these units are ideal for any professional installer, as the neo:8 can be registered on your cloud monitoring portal for remote access and diagnostics or project amendments if need be. This extra level of comfort means that you can access the unit 24/7 in the unlikely event of any potential issues or challenges, meaning that a 'truck roll' need not be necessary to correct a problem with a source device or a TV for instance. Being a 'Professional' product the neo:8 obviously has extensive control system support (Control4® to URC®). The supported drivers and integration partners are fairly endless too - meaning that it is perfect for a host of 3rd party control systems that use IP.
