Salt Lake City, UT – Control4 (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leader in residential and commercial automation systems, announces HDBaseT certification of the Control4® 8×8 HDMI Matrix Switch.

HDBaseT™ Technology delivers uncompressed HD video, multi-channel audio, power, Ethernet, and various control signals such as RS-232 (Serial) and infrared (IR) over a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable. In addition to eight HDMI inputs and eight HDBaseT outputs, the Control4 8×8 HDMI Matrix Switch features two local HDMI outputs, eight LAN pass-through ports, eight stereo audio outputs, eight RS-232 ports, eight bi-directional IR control ports, and an Ethernet port. The 8×8 HDMI Matrix Switch also offers advanced setup options, including sophisticated EDID (extended display identification data) management to ensure fast and reliable switching between sources, along with a zone lock feature that allows a specific video source to be dedicated to a particular zone.

“With the HDBaseT certification, installers can be assured that other HDBaseT compatible products will seamlessly integrate with our Control4 8×8 HDMI Matrix Switch. Plus with Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP), setup is also a snap,” stated Control4 Sr. Product Manager JB Fowler. “Once the HDMI Matrix is connected to the home network, Control4 dealers can use Composer Pro software to automatically install the applicable driver, eliminating the need to search for and install the correct and up-to-date driver for the switch or any other certified driver.”

“HDBaseT provides integrators a simple and cost-effective solution for today’s connectivity issues,” said Micha Risling, Marketing Chair for the HDBaseT Alliance. “Adding Control4 to our growing roster of HDBaseT Certified devices is great for the professional community.”
