4K60 4:4:4 and HDR Support
The DMC-4KZ-HDO incorporates DM 4KZ technology, which uses VESA® Display Stream Compression (DSC) to handle the extreme bandwidth requirement of resolutions beyond 4K30 4:4:4 and 4K60 4:2:0. DSC is a lightweight, line-based 2:1 compression standard that delivers visually lossless performance for 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR signals.DSC is applied to 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR input signals only. All other signals are transported uncompressed.
An existing 4K DigitalMedia system can be upgraded to handle 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR video with the installation of DM 4KZ cards, transmitters, and receivers. The upgrade can be accomplished without the need to replace wiring or switchers. The DMC-4KZ-HDO can replace a DMC-4K-HDO output card in an existing installation (additional programming may be required).
4K60 4:4:4 Scaler
An independent, high-performance 4K60 4:4:4 scaler is provided for each output to ensure that input sources of any resolution or frame rate can be routed and displayed reliably on virtually any display device without compromising the original input signal.
As part of a DM® switcher with many outputs, any video or computer source can be viewed simultaneously on multiple disparate displays, scaling the signal up or down to match the native resolution of each display.
Interlaced sources are converted to progressive scan using motion-adaptive deinterlacing. Intelligent frame rate conversion enables support for 24p and PAL format sources. Fully automatic operation eliminates any complicated setup by utilizing the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to configure each scaler.
Video Wall Processing
The DMC-4KZ-HDO provides zoom capability and bezel compensation on each HDMI output to display only a portion of the source image. Multiple DMC-4KZ-HDO cards can be combined to provide processing for a video wall composed of up to 64 individual displays. Video wall configurations up to 8 wide by 8 high are supported using a separate output for each display and one or more DM switchers.
Each HDMI output on the DMC-4KZ-HDO is accompanied by a balanced/unbalanced analog audio output, allowing stereo audio signals to be extracted from the digital stream and fed to a sound system. The output volume is adjustable via a control system using a keypad, touch screen, handheld remote, or mobile device.
CEC Embedded Device Control
When connected to a control system via a DM switcher, the DMC-4KZ-HDO provides a gateway for controlling display devices through CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) over the HDMI outputs, potentially eliminating the need for dedicated control wires or IR emitters.
