Pulse-Eight neo:X Plus - 4K/UHD Video Matrix Kit (P8-HDBT2-U-FFMJ1210-KIT)

neo: X Plus - Full 4K (4K/60, 4:4:4, 8bit or 4K/60 4:2:2, 12bit) 12x10 Audio & HDMI Matrix Kit (P8-HDBT2-U-FFMJ1210-KIT)

The neo:X+ Video & Audio Matrix has it all - with both audio and video inputs and video and audio outputs. Featuring 8 HDMI inputs, 8 HDBaseT Outputs and 2 HDMI outputs alongside 10 audio output zones (with the options of Stereo L/R, Optical and Digital Coax) and 4 audio input zones (with the option of Optical and Digital Coax). The neo:X+ goes the distance, supporting full 4K/60, 4:4:4, 8bit or 4K/60 4:2:2, 12bit up to 320 feet (100 meters) and 1080p up to 490 feet (150 meters). With audio breakout, Dolby Digital compliance and multiple video control methods.


Imagine being able to control all of your devices (Sky, Blu-Ray Player, Apple TV etc) all from your original TV remote control... CEC control does just that. Gone are the days of 5 remote controls in one room and no need to buy any additional hardware such as universal remotes - you can do it all from your TV remote! Most TVs now support CEC and using our very own libCEC, we've baked that technology into the system. Now you can just use your normal TV remote and press the "Source" key, each of your input devices will be listed and just select the one you want and the matrix will route the video automatically, even if the source does not support CEC itself.


8 in, 10 out and multiple possible combinations of your video. Historically matrixes have offered remotes with 8 or 16 buttons, requiring multiple presses to get video to the TV your watching. We thought this was an odd solution, given you already known which room you are in, so should the matrix! Our designers eliminated this old concept and created Contextual IR, this reduces the number of buttons to just 8 - one for each possible input. Whatever room your in, select the output number and watch that source instantly.


We want to give you the best experience possible, to do this, we think it's important you can access the matrix from any device, be it mobile, tablet or desktop PC and in any browser. We've done this with our responsive design, so it works with you and not the other way round. Our web interface is built directly on top of our REST/API, this means that whatever you can do on your phone, you can get your control system to do also and vice versa. There are no hidden tricks or special codes that require a magic moon dance to work. All of our documentation is free and available on our monitoring site.


At Pulse-Eight, we implement the latest technology into all of our systems and, with the demand for true 4K displays, the neo:X+ incorporates DSC a VESA approved compression for low latency, visually lossless 4K video. DSC allows the neo:X+ to support 4K/60, 4:4:4, 8bit or 4K/60 4:2:2, 12bit without stripping out any of the 4K colour as per other compressions in the market.


Embedding ARC technology into the neo:X+ and the included neo:Ultra Receivers, we have enabled the ability to utilise audio from the output source. ARC is the perfect way to route audio from Smart TV’s in-built apps such as Netflix through the matrix and out of speakers attached to the neo:X+’s audio outputs.


With the neo Alexa skill enabled on your Amazon Echo or Dot you can use commands to turn a certain TV on or off or to switch source devices. Imagine walking out of the lounge at night to continue watching TV in bed, you can simply say 'Alexa, turn off lounge' then 'Alexa, turn on Sky Q in bedroom' and without having to lift a finger the matrix will make your requests happen, including turning on the bedroom TV and switching to the input source with one command.


It's important that you get video all the time, to help us do that your system keeps in contact with our cloud management service. You can tell if this is working with the Monitored LED on the front of the matrix. If you get stuck, your installer or yourself can log into our cloud portal and see helpful diagnosis information (if you let them), fix problems remotely or tell you where you may have gone wrong in the installation. All of this is free of charge. If the matrix has a problem, we get alerted too and we can get in contact to arrange a hardware replacement or give you a step by step guide to get you up and running again.
