Leaf Unveils Industry's First 20x20 Matrix Switcher with 4 Local HDMI Outputs
Complete with an over 300 foot range and sixteen HDBaseT LTB1E remote breakout units, the LTHDMI2020E can receive audio and video from up to 52 potential sources enabling unprecedented whole-home A/V distribution
Indianapolis, IN – CEDIA Expo Booth 4949 – September 5, 2012 at 9:00 AM EST– Leaf, a custom brand of HD audio/video distribution and switching solutions, announces the powerful LTHDMI2020E, the industry’s first 20x20 matrix switcher with 4 HDMI and 16 HDBaseT outputs.
Unlike other switchers on the market, the LTHDMI2020E features four, back-panel HDMI outputs for in-rack or in-room video and audio connectivity. Sixteen HDBaseT LTB1E remote breakout units can receive audio and video from up to 52 potential sources, plus control data and Ethernet connectivity, up to 100m/328ft away.
In addition to 20, full-1080p HDMI 1.4 inputs, there are 16 SPDIF (coax) digital audio and 16 analog audio outputs that enable the centralized racking of power amplifiers while eliminating the need for a separate audio switcher. Sixteen bi-directional IR ports, plus RS-232, allow passing of control signals to remote devices, all while a sleek front-panel touchscreen makes setup a breeze.
To minimize EDID errors, the Zone Lock feature provides the ability to lock a source to a particular zone. Locking the source to the zone allows the passage of specific EDID data ensuring that the display and source correctly interact. This is useful in systems where only certain displays are possible, for example, 3D, or where locking out a certain source from other zones is desired.
“This is the industry’s first 20x20 switcher with local HDMI connectivity and inbuilt audio matrix switching,” said Dean Vaughan, Director Sales & Marketing of Leaf Audio. “With the ever-growing demands of whole home HD video, our 2020E offers unparalleled connectivity and features for even the most complex custom install project.”
The LTHDMI2020E will start shipping at the end of September and will be available through Control4 dealers for $15000.00, plus $350 per LTB1E breakout unit.
