neo8: 8x10 4K/UHD Video Matrix Kit with Audio Breakout (P8-HDBT-L-FFMB810A-KIT)

neo8 Professional: Ultra HD/4K/HDCP2.2 8x10 Matrix Kit with Audio Breakout (P8-HDBT-L-FFMB810A-KIT)
Description

New for 2020 is Pulse-Eight's neo:8 Professional 'A', an 8 input to 10 output Ultra HD/4K/HDCP2.2 matrix kit - featuring digital audio source breakout.

This new matrix now builds on the solid foundations on the 'standard' neo:8 Professional with the great addition of adding source specific audio breakout. This means that all 8 sources if desired, can now be more easily routed and output into centralised audio distribution systems that often run alongisde your video distribution. Each source input now respectively has a coaxial digital or optical output.

This means that the new neo: Professional model will be perfect for running in conjunction with Pulse-Eight 'Pro-Series' audio matrixes, and of course a host of audio distribution platforms from many other leading manufacturers (such as Russound centralised controllers like the MCA-66i or MCA-88i). This new level of flexibility will no doubt win more new friends and installers for Pulse-Eight's outstanding and award winning product lines.

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 Neo8A 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:8A 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.

The Neo8A Professional features both HDMI 2.0 with HDCP2.2 which means it can handle most 4K/UHD sources when configured correctly (Sources set to: 4K/30Hz 4:4:4 & 4K/60Hz 4:2:0 - Max Video Bandwidth 300MHz/10.2Gbps)
