Created to simplify the connection and distribution of high performance audio and video gear, the UltraMatrix™ series of audio and video switchers defines flexibility.
Inputs and outputs are things that no installation ever seems to have enough of. Even the best engineered projects often run short. Extensive I/O and the flexibility to route signals from any source to virtually any destination serve as the genesis of the UltraMatrix™ A/V switch.
Video sources like satellite, cable and Blu-ray are often used as sources to the audio system. Whether it is to play the big game through the architectural speakers around the house, or to use those same speakers in place of the tiny TV speakers making the connection between video source and audio zone, it tends to be time consuming and created a wiring quagmire. The gMV64 features HDMI audio breakout and Audio Return Program, delivering a simple path for the soundtrack to reach the rest of the house. Lip sync adjustments are available on a zone or source basis to account for timing issues caused by video processors and displays.
