Just Add Power will release a HDR firmware update at this August that enables 3G Ultra HD over IP devices able to distribute HDR content. This means that installers can use Just Add Power to create a matrix with any combination of HDMI 2.0 and 1.4 devices, to support the distribution of 4K HDR content to multiple screens over a 1Gb network infrastructure.

The update means that 3G Ultra HD over IP products can be used to create any size of HDMI matrix, with installers being able to distribute a combination 4K HDR, 4K non-HDR, 1080p and lower resolution source device content to a mixture of HDMI 2.0 and 1.4 screens. The receivers behind each display have a built-in scaler that allows 4K HDCP 2.2 encrypted content (HDR or otherwise) to be downscaled to 1080p for Full HD displays, but retained in 2160p with HDCP 2.2 in 4K zones.

The new firmware will work with both Dolby Vision and HDR10.  “The addition of HDR-support means distributing 4K HDR content from devices such as the Kaleidescape Strato Player and Samsung UHD Blu Ray Player is simple and easy,” says Ed Qualls, President of Just Add Power. “Switching between different resolution of content is seamless and does not cause any delay in switching.”

The firmware will be available to download from justaddpower.com.
