AVocation Systems HDMI Matrix Wins Custom Retailer EXCITE Award!

Posted on: September 18th, 2012 No Comments

We’re proud to announce AVocation Systems’ new HDMI matrix, the HX-0808HAC/16 was the recipient of a 2012 Custom Retailer EXC!TE Award , at an award ceremony at CEDIA Expo 2012 in Indianapolis.

Each year, CustomRetailer invites nominations of products that stand out for being innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented for the custom installation professional. This year’s winners stood out as particularly impressive, considering the unique challenges custom installers face every day on the job. The impact these products have on the industry is felt in the installers’ productivity, the dealers’ profitability, the clients’ satisfaction and the industry’s vitality.

For the winning entry, the following statement was considered:

The AVocation Systems Mountain Series HX-0808HAC/16 is one of the most powerful 8×8 HDMI distribution products on the market. With eight analog audio I/O and 16 digital audio inputs (eight coax, eight optical) the HX-0808HAC’s ability to convert all audio formats essentially make it an 8×8 HDMI matrix with a 32×24 capable audio matrix built in, giving an abundance of flexible options for audio distribution. It also allows a single audio source to be played in multiple zones with different audio formats in each zone (full surround, 2-channel, etc), a common limitation of many switchers on the market.

We’re proud to manufacture in the U.S.A with American labor and this award is a testament to our commitment to design excellence.  Thanks to our whole team!

AVOCATION SYSTEMS HDMI MATRIX MASTERS AV SWITCHING ISSUES

Designed for demanding audio set-ups, the new HX-0808HA/16 HDMI matrix offers simultaneous or independent routing and key/EDID management for fast, reliable HDMI and audio switching.

Come meet with is at CEDIA Expo 2012 in Indinapolis, IN September 5-9. We’ll be in Booth 5734 if you want to discuss AV distribution or become a dealer.

AVocation Systems, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional grade audio/video distribution products, announces the Mountain Series 8×8 HDMI with 16×16 Analog/Digital Audio Matrix (HX-0808HA/16). The HX-0808HA/16 is the first digital matrix from AVocation Systems to include sixteen independently routable analog and digital audio inputs and outputs with volume control.

Living rooms, kitchens, media rooms, offices and even outdoor spaces require enhanced HDMI connectivity options as homeowners request the same content in every room, without performance loss. Reliable HDMI switching and routing is critical to meeting this demand. The new HX-0808HA/16 delivers whether an end user is watching one source but listening to another or routing a single source to multiple displays.

“Limitations are frustrating when you just want to enjoy music or video without interruption,” said AVocation Systems marketing manager Trent Mulligan. “Like with all our HDMI matrix products and accessories, we set out to create a reliable solution for common installer problems, while giving end users the functionality they crave. HDMI and audio switching may not be the flashiest technology, but people sure notice when it’s not working properly.”

Each of the eight HDMI, 16 analog audio (RCA), and 16 digital audio (RCA) inputs and outputs can be simultaneously or independently routed, providing enough distribution flexibility for the most demanding AV set-ups. The product’s internal management of HDCP keys and EDID’s ensures reliable and low latency switch times. The AVocation Systems matrix also takes signals from single key cable boxes out to multiple displays, not just one, a common failure of many matrix routers.

AVocation System’s Mountain Series 8×8 HDMI with 16×16 Analog/Digital is compatible with HDMI 1.4 and has support for 3-D content, all while providing up to 36-bit deep color with resolutions up to 1080p 60Hz pixel rates (225 MHz). Control options are IP, RS-232, USB, and Infrared. HDCP 1.1 compliant, the matrix is rack mountable (ears included) and consumes two rack units. AVocation Systems is also an ISPCS Plugfest Participant with a demonstrated commitment to interoperability.

AVocation’s bold shipping policy for The Mountain Series line of HDMI products includes a five-year advanced replacement warranty as well as a 100% money back guarantee. All products are made in the USA.

Simultaneous or Independent Routing of Digital and Analog Signals – HX-0808HA HDMI Matrix

Posted on: June 27th, 2012 No Comments

Our most recent press release is posted below. More of the industry’s best HDMI routers and AV distribution products are on the way, it’s shaping up to be a productive summer.

AVOCATION SYSTEMS INTRODUCES 8X8 HDMI MATRIX WITH AUDIO

Simultaneous or independent routing of HDMI and Analog/Digital Audio is now possible from the new 8×8 matrix.

Broomfield, CO – June 2012 – AVocation Systems, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional grade audio/video distribution products, announces the Mountain Series 8×8 HDMI Matrix with Analog and Digital Audio (HX-0808HA). The HX-0808HA is the first digital matrix from AVocation Systems to include eight independently routable analog and digital audio inputs and outputs with volume control.

Distributing audio over HDMI can present challenges for many installations. With HDMI signals fed directly to displays, listening to the same source through a set of speakers in the same room is not always possible with a conventional HDMI matrix. AVocation’s new matrix provides eight HDMI, eight analog audio (RCA), and eight digital audio (RCA) inputs and outputs that address this problem specifically. Each input/output supports simultaneous or independent routing of HDMI or analog/digital audio. Digital audio can also be broken out and routed independently for maximum flexibility.

Any of the eight HDMI inputs on the HX-0808HA can be routed to any or all of the eight HDMI outputs (likewise for the audio inputs/outputs) and EDID/Key management takes care of latency between switch times. The AVocation Systems matrix also takes signals from single key cable boxes out to multiple displays, not just one, a common failure of manymatrix routers.

“It’s crucial for us to be dialed in on what dealers are looking for in future products, and we can only do this by listening to them, and learning the problems that come into play when routing audio with HDMI,” said Trent Mulligan, sales and marketing manager for AVocation Systems. “The HX-0808HA is an introductory piece that is the first in a line of upcoming products to address these problems. Our ultimate goal is to solve all of the audio problems that can arise when distributing HDMI.”

AVocation System’s Mountain Series 8×8 Matrix with Analog and Digital Audio is compatible with HDMI 1.4 and has support for 3-D content, all while providing up to 36-bit deep color with resolutions up to 1080p 60Hz pixel rates (225 MHz). Control options are IP, RS-232, USB, and Infrared. HDCP 1.1 compliant, the matrix is rack mountable (ears included) and consumes two rack units. AVocation Systems is also an ISPCS Plugfest Participant with a demonstrated commitment to interoperability.

The bold shipping policy for AVocation System’s Mountain Series line of HDMI products includes a five-year advanced replacement warranty as well as a 100% money back guarantee. All products are made in the USA. For more information, please visit www.avocationsystems.com or call 877-805-6639.
