HD Connectivity will add a stackable 8×8 matrix chassis to its HDanywhere Modular series at ISE 2014. The British made Modular model is a customisable 4K Ultra HD compatible HDMI matrix switcher that uses a patented system of interchangeable input/output (I/O) module options, enabling custom installers to build bespoke HD distribution systems on a project by project basis. Integrators are free to specify which signal transmission technology is used for each TV location.

HDMI, HDBaseT Pro and HDBaseT Lite modules can all be mixed and matched. Says HD Connectivity MD Chris Pinder: "Fundamentally our HDanywhere brand is continuing to make great leaps forward in HDMI matrix design and I'm very proud that we've been able to deliver a genuinely revolutionary product for the custom installer, that is made in Britain and providing more UK jobs." 

The Modular matrix features a web-based OS offering an array of system and behaviour management tools, as well as the brand's proprietary 'heartbeat' remote monitoring system. The design was first touted a year go. Speaking about the delay, Pinder comments: "The 8×8 chassis has ultimately arrived one-year later than we originally planned, but it has allowed us to enhance the spec to accommodate Ultra HD 4K/60 resolutions and a more future-proofed backplane. We've had a fantastic integrator response to Modular's build quality and software features, but frustration at the maximum system size. With the introduction of the larger 8×8 chassis, it increases the number of jobs that Modular is suitable for, essentially anything with up to eight sources and displays, which is a sweet spot in custom install project size."
