Leaf is demonstrating the new Leaf Ultra (LU) Series, the company’s HDCP 2.2 compliant Ultra High-Definition matrix range on the Control4 booth at ISE, in addition to the ‘thinnest POH enabled HDBaseT Class A receivers available in the world’.
Compatible with 4K 24, 30 and 60 formats, the new Leaf Ultra HD LU range comprises both HDBaseT Class A and Class B models with Power over HDBaseT.
There are four models in the new series to suit different project requirements. According to the manufacturer, the LU1082 is the only 10×10 4K UHD matrix on the market with 10 HDMI inputs, although eight HDBaseT outputs and two local HDMI outputs for in rack AV receivers are also available.
Other options include the LU862 (eight HDMI inputs/six HDBaseT outputs/two HDMI outputs), the LU642 (six HDMI inputs/four HDBaseT outputs/two HDMI outputs) and the LU642NAP, a HDBaseT Class B system that is supplied as a package, complete with four LU1 HDBaseT receivers.
Three of the four models (LU1082, LU862 and LU642) feature an independent audio matrix, with coaxial digital audio inputs and stereo audio outputs, including variable line level, bass and treble controls and audio delay for lip-sync adjustment.
These units also offer an integrated Ethernet hub. The LAN port can be used not only to control the matrix, but also ensures the incoming feed is internally switched and sent onto the LU1E HDBaseT Receivers.
At 17mm, the LU1E (with Ethernet connection) HDBaseT Receiver is reportedly the slimmest POH HDBaseT Class A receiver in the world, saving space when fitted behind sleek profile TV screens.
Using CAT6a, 4k can be extended up to 100m on the LU 1082, LU862 and LU642 models and up to 40m on the LU642NAP packaged version.
