The AVPro Edge's AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 is the ideal solution for integrators that are needing to distribute a signal to a variety of displays and keep an optimal picture. Integrators will enjoy it's versatility. Not only can it upscale and downscale stereo audio HDMI but it can also handle EDID issues, including 4K HDR EDID's, and bypass multichannel audio when the scaler is off. This scaler is ready for future content as well as it's able to distribute 18Gbps signaling. Yet if you have 480p, 720p, or1080p displays, the AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 will make sure it's getting the right picture.
This product works great alongside one of the AVPro Edge's Matrix's allowing yourself to give the customer the best resolution possible.
Key benefits of using AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2:
Full HDR Support: With a plethora of HDR EDID's to choose from, HDR can now be activated on capable displays no matter what the infrastructure requires. This allows flexibility in system design and allows you to maximize a budgets by providing HDR content where you want it.
Fixed Output Up/Down Scaling: Most AVR's, matrix switchers, and other peripherals do not have the ability to scale. Typically, 4K systems are limited to the maximum resolution of the cheapest or oldest display. If you took the most expensive 4K matrix not equipped with scaling, you would still have to "dumb down" the entire system to be compatible with the cheap or old display. The AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 is the solution! Simply place the scaler before the older display and enjoy 4K content on the capable displays while keeping the same content on the other displays. The fixed output allows you to "Set it and forget it". For example, If you have a 720P display, set the AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 to 720P and any inbound signal will be scaled up or down to 720. NOTE: only stereo audio is supported when scaling is on.
Interlaced to Progressive Scaling: This advanced technology will help installers overcome problematic 1080i sources by converting interlaced signals to progressive signals. In example, you can convert a 1080i 2CH signal to 1080P, 4K 30Hz, 4K 60Hz 4:2:0, or 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 at the users will.
Adaptive Scaling Mode: This EXCLUSIVE AVPro Edge technology was designed specifically to overcome problems with legacy sources, like set-top boxes outputting 720P 2CH or 1080i 2CH. When these legacy formats are implemented into modern, high bandwidth distribution systems, sink devices can exhibit stability issues. The Adaptive Scaling Mode will convert all HDMI signals less than1080P to1080P. When scaling is enabled, only 2Ch audio is supported. Fortunately, Adaptive Scaling Mode will bypass 4K, HDR and multichannel audio signals through untouched. This will allow you to comfortably install legacy sources in modern systems.
The Most Advanced EDID Management: There are 16 pre-loaded EDID settings from legacy technology (480) to full 4K and HDR Options. This is the only device that will provide this unique EDID combination. The AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 also has custom user EDID for future use, total customization and EDID bypass for using the sink EDID.
L/R Audio De-Embedding: The AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 has an audio output which allows audio to be stripped anywhere in a system and re-routed to where it’s needed most. AC-SC2-AUHD-GEN2 units can be combined and multiple streams can be stripped from multiple outputs or sources. NOTE: the extracted audio output only supports 2CH PCM and cannot downmix - for downmixing, check out AC-AVDM-AUHD or our AXION line of matrix switchers.
On Board Troubleshooting: This unit allows you to generate a 720P, 1080P or 4K test pattern to identify external problems (source, repeater, displays, etc...). You can now be sure that your wiring is correct and get to the bottom of problems quickly should they arise, without having to worrying if the source or sink is working properly.
