tagsExtend Hdmi Over Ethernet

Opus-RX41 provides three HDMI inputs for local equipment, and one HDBaseT input, which can receive video, embedded audio, Ethernet pass-through, power and two-way control signals at a distance of up to 100 meters.

It supports 4K/UHD@60 Hz, has 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and high dynamic range formats such as HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision, and can be paired with Opus series matrix switchers, including AT-Opus-46M ( 4x6); AT-Opus-68M (6x8); and AT-Opus-810M (8x10). It can display 4K/UHD HDR content from a central matrix switcher or one of the connected local sources.

Expanding CEC and bidirectional IR and RS-232 signals through HDBaseT allows the control system connected to Opus-RX41 to select the input on the matrix or control its signal source, and allows the matrix to control the display in the local room.

The advanced HDMI audio return channel (ARC) routes audio from the smart TV to Toslink for local audio playback, and passes it to the Opus matrix switcher via HDBaseT. EDID management, optional 4K to 1080p reduction ratio and support for HDCP 2.2 and optional down-conversion to HDCP 1.4 function ensure compatibility with traditional high-definition displays. The remote power supply allows the device to be powered by the Opus matrix switcher so that it can be installed on a monitor or projector without using a local power supply.
