AVocation Systems New 8×8 Matrix Offers Independent or Simultaneous HDMI and Analog/Digital Routing

Broomfield, CO – June 20, 2012 – AVocation Systems, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional grade audio/video distribution products, announces the Mountain Series 8×8 HDMI Matrix with Analog and Digital Audio (HX-0808HA). The HX-0808HA is the first digital matrix from AVocation Systems to include eight independently routable analog and digital audio inputs and outputs with volume control.

Distributing audio over HDMI can present challenges for many installations. With HDMI signals fed directly to displays, listening to the same source through a set of speakers in the same room is not always possible with a conventional HDMI matrix. AVocation’s new matrix provides eight HDMI, eight analog audio (RCA), and eight digital audio (RCA) inputs and outputs that address this problem specifically. Each input/output supports simultaneous or independent routing of HDMI or analog/digital audio. Digital audio can also be broken out and routed independently for maximum flexibility.

Any of the eight HDMI inputs on the HX-0808HA can be routed to any or all of the eight HDMI outputs (likewise for the audio inputs/outputs) and EDID/Key management takes care of latency between switch times. The AVocation Systems matrix also takes signals from single key cable boxes out to multiple displays, not just one, a common failure of many matrix routers.

“It’s crucial for us to be dialed in on what dealers are looking for in future products, and we can only do this by listening to them, and learning the problems that come into play when routing audio with HDMI,” said Trent Mulligan, sales and marketing manager for AVocation Systems. “The HX-0808HA is an introductory piece that is the first in a line of upcoming products to address these problems. Our ultimate goal is to solve all of the audio problems that can arise when distributing HDMI.”

AVocation System’s Mountain Series 8×8 Matrix with Analog and Digital Audio is compatible with HDMI 1.4 and has support for 3-D content, all while providing up to 36-bit deep color with resolutions up to 1080p 60Hz pixel rates (225 MHz). Control options are IP, RS-232, USB, and Infrared. HDCP 1.1 compliant, the matrix is rack mountable (ears included) and consumes two rack units. AVocation Systems is also an ISPCS Plugfest Participant with a demonstrated commitment to interoperability.

AVocation’s bold shipping policy for The Mountain Series line of HDMI products includes a five-year advanced replacement warranty as well as a 100% money back guarantee. All products are made in the USA. For more information, please visit www.avocationsystems.com or call 877-805-6639.
