DVDO® Inc., an award-winning provider of high-quality video connectivity solutions, today announced the availability of the Matrix6™, the first matrix switcher that brings 4K Ultra HD matrix switching to residential and commercial A/V systems. Developed for easy integration into whole home theater control systems, the Matrix6 switcher displays two 4K sources simultaneously on two TVs or projectors, removing the need for additional investment in source equipment. It features six HDMI® compliant inputs and two HDMI outputs with 4K Ultra HD and is the first matrix switcher on the market that also supports MHL® connectivity. Two digital audio outputs are also provided to enable connections to A/V receivers and soundbars. The Matrix6 will be available in Q4, 2013 at an MSRP of $499.99 from authorized DVDO distributors, dealers and online partners.

"Matrix6 is the ideal solution for any home theater setup with two displays, allowing consumers to enjoy a multi-screen experience and access to advanced video connectivity technologies such as 4K Ultra HD and MHL," said C.H. Chee, general manager of DVDO. "Adding Matrix6 to our growing line of video switching products validates our ongoing commitment to providing the latest in video connectivity solutions for residential and commercial applications."

Simultaneous 4K Ultra HD Switching

Matrix6 supports two independent 4K Ultra HD streams while providing digital audio to an attached AVR, making it easy to view content in another room or on a second display without sacrificing performance or additional investment.

MHL Connectivity

MHL inputs on Matrix6 allow the user to mirror the content of their MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet on multiple displays, while charging the mobile device at the same time.
