        HD-MD4X2-4K-E

        4x2 4K HDMI® Switcher

        A high-performance, surface-mountable 4K/60 signal switcher with four HDMI® inputs and two HDMI outputs, 4x2 matrix switching, advanced EDID management, QuickSwitch HD® technology, and native Crestron® control via Ethernet.

        The Crestron® HD-MD4X2-4K-E is a simple to use, ultra high-definition signal switcher with four HDMI® inputs and two HDMI outputs. It handles Full HD 1080p, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K video signals with support for HDCP, 3D, Deep Color, and high-bitrate 7.1 audio. Operation is enabled using the onboard controls, a Web browser, or a Crestron control system. Simplified setup is facilitated through the front panel OLED display or a Web browser.

        4K Ultra HD

        Support for 4K video is essential to ensuring support for the latest generation of UHD and 4K DCI displays and sources, as well as computers and monitors with native resolutions beyond 1080p and WUXGA.

        QuickSwitch HD® Technology

        Handling digital media signals means handling HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), the encryption scheme used by content providers to protect their DVDs, Blu-ray™ discs, and broadcast signals against unauthorized copying. Viewing HDCP encrypted content requires a source device to “authenticate” each display and signal processor in the system and issue it a “key” before delivering an output signal. Crestron QuickSwitch HD manages these keys to ensure fast, reliable switching and immunity to “blackouts.”

        EDID Format Management

        To ensure that every source gets displayed at its optimal resolution and format, the HD-MD4X2-4K-E provides comprehensive management of the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) information that passes between the display and source devices. Most applications require no changes to the default settings. For applications requiring custom configuration, the HD-MD4X2-4K-E allows for easy assessment of each device’s format and resolution capabilities, with the ability to configure signals appropriately for the most desirable and predictable behavior.

        Low-Profile Installation

        The HD-MD4X2-4K-E mounts conveniently to a wall or other flat surface. At just over one inch deep, it can fit easily behind a flat panel display or under a table. It can also be placed on a rack shelf, or attached to a single rack rail.
