Our sponsor Antiference is excited to be back at ISE 2017 to showcase a selection of exciting new developments in HDBase-T matrix products plus the all new HDMI – DVB-T modulators
From the launch in 2014 the UHD Trucolour HDBase-T POE matrix range has evolved and developed into an exciting option for HD distribution with an on-board control system and remote management system. Now encompassing the Neo branding the range offers lots of choice for the installer and user with HDCP 2.2 support in 4x4, 6x6 and a modular 8x8 solution plus now works with Alexa!
Each Trucolour neo matrix features a CEC based control system as standard which allows the user to control the matrix, sources and even devices such as AVR's (where CEC is supported) using the TV's original remote control. This means the matrix turns the TV's remote control into a universal handset meaning an expensive control system is not required (CEC is required in all devices).
The remote management system allows the installer to provide a higher level of customer service by managing the system via a portal in which details of the system can be checked and firmware updated etc. This is accessed via a unique installer ID which can be obtained on request. A new Power Distribution Unit (PDU) has now been added to the range allowing devices to be remotely re-booted should this be required.
The latest addition to the product is integration with Alexa. This exciting new voice control system can now be used to control the matrix to switch between sources and power on/off source devices.
All of these exciting products and features are on live demonstration at the Antiference stand in hall 9 - the new Smart Homes centre.
Other developments from Antiference are new additions to the HDMI modulator range. This alternative HD distribution over a coax cable network is becoming more popular in buildings which re-cabling is not feasible. The Conexer modulator range feature single and quad input models for a variety of applications. New for 2017 is a single input with HDMI loop and IR control in-built plus a USB record/playback feature. Other additions to this product family are the all new Minimod HC products for budget installs and offers single and twin input models.
