MHUB S is HDAnywhere’s (HDA) new stackable matrix that offers installers an option to spec a HDBaseT-based system for up to 32 displays by combining multiple units to operate as one unified matrix. HDA maintains it is a simpler, lower-cost alternative to AV over IP.
Each 8×8 matrix supports 100m of 18G/4K range, 4K > 1080 downscaling and full uControl of all connected sources, displays and now lighting.
MHUB S can be used with a third-party control system or HDA’s new Zone Processor, which manages the stack, turning it from unrelated MHUBs into one managed matrix incorporating IR passback, uControl (included free), IoT capability and sequences throughout the entire system. It means that the MHUB S doesn’t need an additional control system, reducing the overall cost.
Indeed, compared to AV over IP, HDA maintains that, “if you’re building a solution between eight and 32 screens then it’s likely that MHUB S is going to be the cheaper alternative”. HDBaseT should also be easier to install and manage than IP, and results in a lot less compression, which should improve video quality.
