PureLink Adds Scaling Capabilities to its HTX Matrix Switchers

New HTX-RX-S HDBaseT Up/Downscaling Receiver Extends UHD/4K Signals up to 330 Feet

PureLink, a leading manufacturer of professional Audio/Video connectivity solutions for commercial and residential integrators and designers worldwide, announced today that they have begun shipping their new HTX-RX-S scaling receiver. This new system, designed as a simplified extension solution for their HTX Series of HDMI to HDBaseT switchers, utilizes POE technology and will upscale 1080p signals up to 4K or downscale 4K signals back to 1080p.

PureLink's HTX-4400-U or HTX-8800-U 4K HDBaseT Matrix Switchers integrate HDBaseT 5Play Technology, bundling video and audio signals, bi-directional control, Ethernet, and power into a single cable. All models support HDCP 2.2 content over HDBaseT with resolutions from 480i to 4K@60Hz (4:2:0) up to 330 ft. Flexible control options include IR, RS-232, LAN, and Ethernet port for easy third party device networking. The system features PureLink's comprehensive EDID/HDCP Management System, offering powerful plug-and-play connectivity between various sources and remote displays.

"The HTX-Rx-S provides high-performance up/downscaling capabilities at Ultra HD/4K resolutions," stated Kevin Kang, PureLink's Technical Sales Director. "It extends uncompressed HDMI signals, full 3D content, and bi-directional control to distances up to 330 feet," he added. "And using POE technology, the HTX Rx can draw power from the HTX matrix chassis, eliminating the need for additional power supplies," concluded Mr. Kang.

"Bringing scaling capabilities to a state of the art 4K switcher like the HTX brings even more value to our customers," stated Howard Schilling, PureLink's Director of Sales. "Embodying PureLink's world-class innovations in EDID management and video processing, the HTX-U series offers a full-featured Ultra HD/4K HDBaseT signal management system designed to simplify and enhance integration in a variety of conferencing, presentation, and home theater applications," he added. "And with the control software available with this system the user can easily control switching, set EDID and check network status via a simple, easy to operate User Interface," he concluded.
