• AMX debuts affordable family of 4K60 4:4:4 matrix switching, window processing, and HDMI-TO-USB products


    Harman Professional Solutions has introduced six new AMX products for meeting and lecture spaces utilizing software-based conferencing platforms like Zoom and Teams.

    The debut includes four new Precis PR-Series matrix switchers supporting up to eight sources and eight outputs, the new Precis PR-WP-412 windowing processor to dynamically window up to four sources, and the new UVC1-4K HDMI to USB 3.0 capture device. These products reportedly ensure impactful collaboration at a powerfully competitive price point.

    Meant for affordable video routing in small to medium installations, the new Precis PR-Series Matrix Switchers are available in four configurations - 4x2, 6x2, 4x4 and 8x8. All models include capabilities like pixel-for-pixel video reproduction, fast switching, comprehensive EDID management, HDMI audio de-embedding, an open control API, and a web interface. The PR-0402 also supports auto-switching to provide touch-free video switching in small applications.

    The new AMX PR-WP-412 is both versatile and cost effective by combining a 4x1+1 windowing and a 4x2 seamless matrix switcher in a single, compact unit. Collaboration in meetings and distance learning can be enhanced and amplified with included technologies like truly seamless switching, class-leading 4K60 4:4:4 video quality, integrated audio breakaway, an open control API, and a simple-to-use web interface.

    The new UVC1-4K capture device solves the issue of PCs that lack HDMI or other video inputs. The UVC1-4K delivers content from video cameras, document cameras or other HDMI sources into software-based conferencing and streaming applications via the computer’s USB port. Features include 4K60 4:4:4 video input, HDMI and separate analog audio input, standard UVC interface and control, and USB 3.0 output up to 3840x2160p@30fps.

    “The proliferation of software-based conferencing has created a momentous shift in the AV designs of traditional meeting and lecture spaces,” said Jeff Burch, HARMAN Professional Director of Video and Control. ”This suite of new products ensures users are equipped to take advantage of the enhanced capabilities of the modern collaboration space as well as simplifying AV management for just about any application.”
