CYP EUROPE

CYP'S POCKET ROCKET Long associated with the implementation of HDBaseT technology, CYP has created the MA421 mini-matrix to suit applications that require simple installation and control, but still retain the high-level performance its larger matrix products are known for. The four HDMI inputs can be independently switched to either of the two outputs (single HDBaseT or HDMI with mirrored HDBaseT), allowing for dual display use in one room (TV screen and projector) with the same or different source in another. A single HDBaseT receiver (PUV-1710LRX-AVLC) is included in the package allowing users to get up and running quickly. CYP says quality of performance is assured as the MA-421 delivers the same up to 4K UHD (18Gbps, 4K @50/60Hz 4:4:4 8-bit) and Dolby Vision performance as its larger siblings. This is thanks to the inclusion of the company’s AVLC (Adaptive Visually Lossless Compression) technology, which compresses the 18Gbps signal down to 10.2Gbps so that it can fit within the bandwidth offered by HDBaseT. AVLC faithfully reassembles the image, so that the user receives the same 4K UHD image

as supplied at the source. Scaling is also offered on all the outputs, with independent EDID based output scaling for automatic compatibility with 4K/4KHDR and older 1080p TVs. Audio is also given lots of attention as the MA421 can support the passthrough of HD audio formats including LPCM 2/5.1/7.1CH, Dolby Digital 2/5.1CH, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos and DTS-X/HD Master Audio. The built-in 20W stereo amplifier and mirrored 3.5mm stereo line output can be assigned to any of the outputs, allowing the user the flexibility to improve audio performance where needed. The HDMI output also has built in ARC (Audio Return Channel) audio return pathway to pull the audio signal back from the connected TV and utilised by the built-in amplifier and/or line output. The new free CYP Control app included means the user can control any connected TV or source from their mobile device via IR as well as the MA421 itself, including source selection and volume levels. Setup is simple from the MA-421’s integral WebGui.

#EILIVESHOW


CYP EUROPE

CYP argues that with a packed feature line-up, the MA421 mini-matrix it a top pick for a multitude of domestic and commercial applications.

More matrix magic

Another recent release from CYP is the company’s flagship matrix – the PUV-1082-PRO 10 x 10 HDMI HDBaseT matrix with audio matrixing and AVLC technology. This is based on the successful PUV1082-4K22, but offers independent video scaling on all outputs, as well as CYP’s AVLC technology. Available now, the PUV-1082-PRO comes packaged with IR remote control, rackmount ears, detachable handles two IR extender cables, two IR blaster cables and two power supplies. The PUV-1082-PRO supports the transmission of video (resolutions up to 4K UHD 10/12-bit HDR & Dolby Vision, HDCP 2.2, HDMI2.0) and multichannel digital audio from 10 HDMI sources to eight HDBaseT outputs and two independent HDMI2.0 outputs (18Gbps). Despite the 10.2Gbps limitation of HDBaseT technology, the product enables data rates of up to 18Gbps to be transmitted using CYP’s AVLC tech. The transmitter enables 4K UHD sources up-to and including 4K@60Hz (4:4:4 8-bit), as well as 10/12-bit sources with HDR (including Dolby Vision) to be extended to a compatible receiver. The PUV-1082-PRO supports independent video output scaling on all of the HDBaseT and HDMI outputs; particularly useful when transmitting a 4K HDR image from the matrix to a standard 1080p HD display within an AV setup.

#EILIVESHOW

The product incorporates an independent audio matrix with 14 audio outputs and 10 audio inputs. These outputs and inputs can be used for deembedding HDMI audio to the audio outputs and embedding audio to the HDBaseT and HDMI outputs. The audio CAT connections, along with compatible bi-directional audio modules (PU305BD-RX & PU-305BDA-RX) allow integration with remote sources and remote audio zones. In addition, volume, mute, treble, bass and audio lip sync correction control are available on all direct audio outputs. Optical Audio Return (OAR) Technology allows the optical input on the PUV-1830RX-AVLC receiver to be routed back to the audio matrix. High resolution digital audio formats such as LPCM 7.1CH, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos and DTSHD Master Audio, as well as 3D video content are supported. LAN connectivity provides a 100BaseT network for smart TVs or games consoles in each zone. The matrix has a built-in pattern generator which can be used to verify the video signal on any of its 10 output ports. The Power over HDBaseT (PoH) function provides power to compatible receivers. Control is via manual selection buttons, IR, RS232, Telnet or Web GUI. CYP provides control drivers for all the major control automation. This unit also supports RS232 pass-through to the receivers. The PUV-1082PRO is designed to be used with PUV1830RX-AVLC or PUV-1810RX-AVLC receivers that use the PoH and LAN capabilities of the matrix.
