Enhancing the Leaf product family is the innovative entry-level Leaf 6x4 HDMI Matrix Switch, competitively priced and ready for installation within custom residential and commercial projects Leaf, a leading manufacturer of HD audio/video distribution and switching solutions, has announced the sophisticated LTXP64 is now shipping. Designed with the needs of today's custom integrator in mind, the 6x4 HDMI Matrix is capable of switching 6 unique HDMI sources to 4 independent zones, while supporting full 1080P/60 resolution, 3D, and Dolby Digital and DTS-HD audio formats. The 1RU Rack Space makes the LTXP64 easy to install and with the help of Leaf's EZ-Calibration system, set-up is a breeze. To minimize EDID errors, the LTXP64 also boasts Leaf's unique Zone Lock feature, which provides the ability to lock a source to a particular zone, allowing the passage of specific EDID data and ensuring that the display and source correctly interact. With a sleek frontdesign, the LTXP64 can be controlled simply via front panel buttons while maintaining its ability to be integrated into most common control systems via IP or RS232 Control. "The development of the 6x4 HDMI Matrix Switch spawned from a critical need for us to build a high quality solution that could add real value for our dealers and their installations," said Danny Webb, North American Sales and Marketing Manager for Leaf. "In your typical installation a 4x4 solution simply isn't enough, however integrators don't necessarily want to resort to a 6x6 or 8x8 that will unnecessarily inflate their customer's project budget. With the 6x4, dealers get the unrelenting power and flexibility they need while end-users benefit from a reliable solution at an economical price." Manufactured and thoroughly tested to meet the highest standards for performance and dependability, the LTXP64 also contains Control4® Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) software, making integration within a Control4 automation system easy and seamless. Furthermore, when combined with the new Leaf LTPTP-F HDBaseT Extender Solution, integrators can distribute the 6x4's HDMI signals up to 100m (330ft). This combination enhances the power and reach of their AV installations while providing a truly comprehensive, versatile experience. The Leaf LTXP64 has an introductory US MSRP of $1,999 and is currently available for purchase through authorized Control4 Dealers and direct through Leaf. www.leafaudio.com
