Ocean Matrix Introduces Interfaces for Audio and Video

Ocean Matrix has debuted four new interface solutions for professional video and audio users including an audio extractor and embedder, a Fast Ethernet to fiber converter and an HDBaseT HDMI extender.

Ocean Matrix said the OMX-HDMI2-AEE 4K HDMI 2.0 Audio Extractor and Embedder extracts audio signals from an HDMI source and allows simultaneous S/PDIF (Toslink) and stereo (3.5mm) analog and digital output. This device can also embed external stereo analog or digital S/PDIF into the outgoing HDMI signal.

The HDMI2-AEE delivers 18G bandwidth to support the HDMI 2.0 specification.

The OMX-E2F 100Base-T Fast Ethernet to SC Fiber Converter transmits up to 12 miles over single-mode SC fiber and protects the signal from electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Designed to distribute internet access to multiple points over longer distances for outside broadcast, live events and field productions, this converter can also be used for fiber to UTP signal conversion.



The OMX-HDMI-EPOE Extender delivers full 1080p HDMI over CAT6/6A/7 cables up to 110 feet with zero latency and features EDID management. The system's POE transmitter sends AV signals and power through the receiver to the display on a single cable. IR control extension cables allow for remote control of the video source at a secondary location.

The OMX-HDMI-BASET HDBaseT HDMI Extender supports full HD 1080P@60Hz and 4Kx2K transmission as well as embedded audio up to 300 feet over a single Cat5e/6/6a/7 cable. The HDBaseT technology based extender transports signals via network cables for point-to-point and multiple-point connections.
