Control4 is now bringing 4K Ultra HD content distribution to smart homes by providing fully HDCP 2.2 compliant 4K UHD audio and video matrix switches for home automation installations. Available for order today, the new line of Control4 4K UHD Matrix Switches provides the ability to distribute 4K content, including copy-protected content, to every room in the Control4 Smart Home without the need for additional hardware or software. Control4 UHD 4K solutions “We are committed to delivering on the promise of 4K by offering compelling video distribution solutions to homeowners who expect the very best in entertainment,” says Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and CEO. “Our recent acquisition of Leaf, the Australia-based provider of audio/video distribution products, helped us get to market faster with a comprehensive media distribution solution that is truly 4K-ready today.” All Control4 4K UHD Matrix Switches are HDCP 2.2 compliant, meeting the standards set by content creators for copy protection. This ensures that our customers do not receive the black screen produced by non-compliant systems trying to play copy-protected content. In addition, the new line of Control4 multi-room 4K UHD Matrix Switches are packed with performance and flexibility, including: •          10x10, 8x8, and 6x6 models for projects of various scales. •          A sleek and unobtrusive ultra-compact receiver eliminates the need for extra equipment or wiring, reducing mess, costs and installation time. Powered via a single cable, this compact receiver does not require a separate power supply, keeping the equipment required in any room to a minimum. •          The necessary horsepower to distribute 4K Ultra HD video content and high-fidelity audio to up to 10 TVs in the house, from 10 unique sources. •          Advanced device management for faster and more responsive switching between video sources, giving consumers a seamless entertainment experience in every room. •          Integrated audio matrix switch extracts stereo audio from the HDMI inputs and delivers audio to up to eight zones throughout the home. www.control4.com
