Our Platinum 6x6 HDBaseT™ Matrix delivers a range of industry leading features. The PLA66ARC is a 4K 6x6 matrix,
transmitting HDMI, Bi-directional IR, RS-232 and PoH (Power over HDBaseT™) up to lengths of 100m over a single CAT cable. The matrix also provides advanced features including independent audio matrix, simultaneous HDBaseT™ & HDMI outputs, single HDBaseT™ input, HDMI audio breakout and audio de-embedding. The PLA66ARC matrix is a HDBaseT™ class A product and includes additional features such as ARC (audio return channel) and LAN serving via HDBaseT™ over single CAT cable.

The matrix can be fully controlled via TCP/IP, RS-232, IR or using the Blustream Software, allowing the user to define audio routing and conversion, designate EDID presets and lip sync control.
