MA-U42 – UHD+ Multi-Format HDMI Switcher with Amplifier

The MA-U42 is a 4×2 matrix switch with amplifier, designed for use in environments needing flexibility when it comes to inputs, outputs, and control. The three most common video input interfaces (HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA w/stereo audio) are included along with a pair of HDMI outputs, providing excellent source compatibility and flexibility. This unit is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports resolutions up to a maximum of 4K@60Hz (4:4:4, 8-bit) for HDMI and Display port. The included microphone input, with optional 48V phantom power and support for automatic ducking, feeds directly into a DSP mixer allowing for powerful presentations with live voiceovers or even an impromptu karaoke session. Pass-through of multiple digital audio formats such as LPCM (up to 8 channels), bitstream and HD bitstream are supported. Additionally, the integrated stereo amplifier provides up to 40 watts of power (20W per channel) for local speakers to output the audio from the selected source, offering a flexible sound experience (LPCM 2.0 sources only).

This matrix also includes a USB 3.0 hub with one host port (Type-B), plus three device ports (Type-A) for a flexible KVM configuration. It also provides an interface for a remote control keypad or trigger interface, which can be easily installed within a podium or table, making this matrix ideal for use in meeting rooms, classrooms, and auditoriums which need comprehensive video and audio integration with USB expansion.

This unit is controllable via front panel controls, WebGUI, Telnet, Triggers, and RS-232.
