RTcom USA Announces New Ground-Breaking Digital Matrix Routers

HS-66MSparta, N.J., (March 31, 2008) – RTcom USA Inc., provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer audio-visual and personal computer systems, today announced the HS-66M and HS-88M – the industry’s first high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) matrix routers with 6-in 6-out and 8-in 8-out ports, respectively. Also new from RTcom USA is the DS-66HM, a high-performance digital video interface (DVI) router with 6-in-6 out ports. All three new Matrix Routers from RTcom USA feature full HDCP (High bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compliance, giving users the ability to transmit high-definition audio and video signals to as many as eight displays.

DS-66HMWith the DS-66HM, HS-66M and HS-88M Matrix Routers, DVI and HDMI signals from popular consumer audio-visual products – such as A/V receivers, satellite set top boxes, and Blu-ray disc players – can be sent simultaneously to up to six or eight different displays without degradation in signals. The DS-66HM, HS-66M and HS-88M Matrix Routers’ HDCP compatibility alleviates the problem of HDCP encoding, which previously blocked signals from being transmitted from audio-visual products to multiple displays.
“Our philosophy at RTcom is to provide high-quality, cutting-edge products to both consumers and professional integrators,? said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. “The DS-66HM, HS-66M and HS-88M Matrix Routers are indicative of this philosophy. We developed the industry-first six source input/output router; however, since we continually strive to be innovators in the digital connectivity market, we couldn’t stop at just six.?

The HS-66M Matrix Router:

•Multiple switching modes allow any of up to 6 sources to be sent to any of 6 display devices.
•Control options include RS-232C, LAN (TCP/IP), infrared or front panel keys
