8x10 HDBaseT Video & Audio Matrix Kit

Kit includes 8x SoloCAT HD MAX PoH Receivers

The Palladia gX is Zektor’s powerful Video & Audio Matrix which features 8 HDMI inputs, 8 HDBaseT outputs, 2 HDMI outputs and a full audio matrix with 10 audio output zones. Implementing our latest technology, the Palladia gX can support 4K/60, 4:4:4, 8bit or 4K/60 4:2:2, 12bit up to 320 feet (100 meters). It also supports 1080p up to 490 feet (150 meters) – currently further than any other in our matrix range. 

The
Palladia gX features ARC (audio return channel) to send the audio to separate speakers within the installation. As with all of our matrixes, Palladia gX supports multiple control methods including CEC, IR, Alexa voice control and set top box IP control.

The Palladia gX video & audio matrix brings a new dimension to the Zektor HDBaseT matrix range. Featuring 8 HDMI inputs, 8 HDBaseT Outputs and 2 HDMI outputs alongside 10 zones of audio outputs with the options of Stereo L/R, Optical and Digital Coax.

The Palladia gX 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,
the Palladia gX is truly revolutionary.

 

DSC (DISPLAY STREAM COMPRESSION)

At Zektor, we implement the latest technology into all of our systems and, with the demand for true 4K displays, the Palladia incorporates DSC a VESA approved compression for low latency, visually lossless 4K video. DSC allows the Palladia gX 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.

 

ARC (AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL)

Embedding ARC technology into the Palladia gX and the included SoloCAT HD Ultra MAX 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 Palladia gX’s audio outputs.

 

Control from TV

Control your devices from your TV remote

WITH HDMI-CEC CONTROL

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 universale 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.

Contextual IR

4 in, 4 out, that's 16 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 did away with this old concept and instead created Contextual IR, this reduces the number of buttons to just 4, one for each possible input. Whatever room your in, select 1, 2, 3, 4 and watch that source instantly.

Control from TV

Remote control on your phone

WITH OUR RESPONSIVE WEB INTERFACE

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.

Just Ask...

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.

WITH THE REMOTE MONITORING PORTAL

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.
