Leading AV distribution innovator Blustream announced today that it is shipping its new 4K HDMI 2.0 8×8 Platinum Matrix. The PLA88CS combines the global standard of advanced HDBaseT™ to transmit HDMI, ARC, LAN, and bi-directional IR and RS-232 signals up to lengths of 328 feet in 4K UHD and 492 feet in 1080p over a single CAT cable. It can accommodate displays with various resolutions —downscaling 4K videos for lower-resolution displays while maintaining pristine resolution for UHD displays — and elevates the audio experience across multiple formats.

“The PLA88CS combines an 8×8 video matrix with a 24×16 audio matrix independently controlled from the video for uncompromising performance and versatility,” said Martyn Shirley, Blustream’s General Manager. “And it is unlike any other matrix in its capacity to mix several multiple high-bit-rate audio output formats, thanks to its independent Dolby Audio and DTS Audio downmixing. Between drastically reducing cables, labor, and programming tasks while elevating features to support today’s 4K UHD installations, we are confident that the PLA88CS matrix will provide installers with a stress-free setup that delivers the high-quality viewing and listening experience users demand.”

Just Add Power, a leader in video-over-IP distribution, is amping up the capabilities of its 718KVM/749KVM transmitters to offer full AVP functionality with Dolby chipsets that are now available for order. Built in response to the incredible customer demand for the company’s 718AVP and 749AVP transmitters at a time when the solutions’ Dolby downmixing chipset was in short supply, the 718KVM/749KVM transmitters support keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) — as well as stereo audio breakout — right out of the box. With the installation of the new Dolby chipset, the transmitters can be modified in the field to deliver full AVP performance.

“When supply chain issues threatened to disrupt workflow and investments, we knew we had to solve this hardware problem with the same modular and flexible approach that has made Just Add Power an AV distribution leader,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager for Just Add Power. “We are pumped to offer the new Dolby chipset and introduce a whole new level of modularity. With the 718KVM and 749KVM transmitters now a permanent part of our portfolio, installers have a lower cost of entry into Just Add Power AV distribution with KVM functionality, or they can add the chipset — supporting AVP and enabling Dolby downmixing only where needed.”
