16x16 HDBaseT Matrix Switchers With 7.1 Audio Downmixing Have Arrived

July 1, 2019



The AC-MX1616-AUHD-HDBT-AVDM delivers all the features of the HDBaseT version but really makes this product special is the ability to downmix bitstream audio beyond 7.1 channel into a 2 channel audio signal via all 16 inputs.AVPro presents the all new 16x16 HDBaseT matrix switchers including the world's first 16x16 HDBaseT matrix switch with built-in 7.1 channel downmixing. The AC-MX1616-AUHD-HDBT and AC-MX1616-AUHD-HDBT-AVDM (downmixing version) are the ideal solution for multi-zone setups in both homes and commercial settings.

This switch allows you to deliver 24+ channels to your Dolby Atmos home theater, at the same time it delivers 2 channel to the rest of the zones. We do this by allowing the downmixing to only affect the de-embedded audio outputs, the 8 mirrored HDBaseT & HDMI ports leave the audio unimpeded, allowing you to distribute full Dolby Atmos and DTS-X through them.

Supporting the full HDMI 2.0 a/b specification and supporting every flavor of HDR, this matrix will ensure you can get the most out of any system. The AC-MX1616-AUHD-HDBT-AVDM supports HDR formats Including HDR, HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HLG, BBC and NHK.  All of them are supported in up to 4K 60Hz and up to 12 Bit Deep Color and all color space compression is compatible.
