AVICO HDMI Video Matrix Demo & Review:

The Ultimate Video Distribution Hub

Today, we're excited to introduce you to AVICO's Pro end 8x8 HDMI Video Matrix switcher—a professional-level video distribution hub suitable for both home and commercial applications. Packed with features like a web GUI, EDID management, downscaling, CEC, and audio extraction, this Matrix is compatible with 4K 60 devices, making it perfect for live streaming and gaming.

Let's talk about the physical features of the device before exploring its advanced functionalities. On the front, you'll find input/output selection buttons and system navigation buttons. A lock button on the lower right ensures panel security. Flipping to the back reveals HDMI ports, an IR extender port, 3.5mm aux ports for stereo audio, digital coax ports for surround sound, a network port for web GUI access, and an RS-232 port for power users.

Included in the box are a remote control, IR extender, rack ears, RS-232 cable, and a power adapter.

Advanced Features: Downscaling and More

One of the standout features of this Matrix is its unique downscaling capability. Unlike other matrices that downscale at the input, the AVICO Matrix downscales at the output. This means you always get the optimal resolution for each connected display, avoiding common issues where other matrices may downgrade all displays to the lowest common resolution.

For example, connecting a 4K 60 Xbox and two 1080p TVs, the AVICO Matrix ensures each display receives its optimal resolution. This feature makes it a standout device in the market.

Setting up and controlling the Matrix is a breeze with the web GUI. Connect the Matrix to your network, log in using the IP address, and you can easily control input/output routings and create presets. The web GUI also offers EDID management, CEC controls, and other system settings.

Audio extraction is another notable feature. The Matrix can automatically de-embed audio from the video feed and replicate it to all three audio outputs: auxiliary, digital coax, and HDMI connections.

The Ultimate Video Routing Solution

One of the primary reasons too chose the AVICO HDMI Video Matrix is its exceptional ability to manage video signals efficiently. Imagine this scenario: You're in the midst of a demanding video production day, and amidst all the hustle, your team often overlooks the need to switch video sources seamlessly. This HDMI Video Matrix addresses that challenge by providing a dedicated solution for your video routing needs, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free production process.

The standout feature of this video matrix is its impressive routing capacity. Whether you have one or all matrix inputs occupied, the AVICO matrix delivers a consistent and high-quality video signal. This sets it apart from many other matrices on the market that may experience signal degradation when all inputs are in use. With the AVICO matrix, you can trust that each connected device receives the optimal video signal it deserves, regardless of the complexity of your setup, this includes downscaling resolution to match display specification.
