MetraAV™ Introduces New Audio and HDMI® Extenders at CEDIA Expo

MetraAV™ is bringing two new HDMI® extenders and a new audio extender to the 2021 CEDIA Expo, expanding its product line of AV distribution electronics. A new 4×4 matrix that includes extenders and has built-in compatibility features gives integrators a high-quality solution that is also budget-friendly. A new HDMI extender sends a 4K/30 signal up to 40 meters or up to 70 meters at 1080p over single Cat6 cable. For audio, MetraAV is also showcasing a new extender that supports analog, optical, and digital coax, providing a flexible solution for integrators.

4×4 HDMI 2.0 Matrix with Extenders
MetraAV’s new CS-44MEE provides video distribution without defaulting to the lowest resolution in the system, allowing legacy and new 4K technology to co-exist. This versatile 4×4 HDMI matrix not only includes four receivers for a cost-effective package but it can also downscale 4K to 1080p resolution for each output. It extends HDMI signals up to 70 meters (230 feet) and supports 4K/60, HDR, HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision®, and HLG, plus resolution scaling on the mirrored HDMI and Cat outputs. Additionally, this matrix is designed to solve HDMI compatibility issues between mixed hardware using advanced EDID and CEC control. This system is easy to set up and can be controlled from the front panel, via an IR remote, RS232, IP, or the web GUI.
