8x8 HDMI 2.0 matrix with HDCP 2.2 support. It features Web GUI control and audio level adjustment. Its advanced HDBaseT technology enables uncompressed, zero latency video and audio transmission. Allows the Bi-directional receivers to be powered by PoH (PoE). It supports 4K UHD video up to 70m (3840x2160@30Hz 4:4:4, 4096x2160@24Hz 4:4:4, and 4K@60Hz 4:2:0) and HDBaseT extenders up to 100m with Cat.6 at 1080p resolution. Inputs 1 and 2 support HDMI and HDBaseT inputs up to 70 meters with Cat.6. It has L/R analog audio input per mini-jack for each of the inputs and outputs for each of the channels in HDMI, HDBaseT, stereo analog audio, SPDIF digital audio. Allows bi-directional transmission of IR, RS232 and PoH and PoE power. It can be controlled from the front panel, IR, RS232 and TCP/IP. Drivers are available for developers. It has advanced EDID management and is compatible with HDCP 2.2.

The Blustream PLA88ARC-V2 8x8 HDBaseT matrix offers a number of industry-leading features. The matrix also provides advanced features including independent audio routing, audio return channel (ARC), simultaneous HDBaseT/HDMI outputs, two HDBaseT inputs, LAN (Ethernet) service, RS-232 port to allow integration of third-party control and web interface module for matrix control and configuration.

The matrix can be configured using the Blustream software, allowing the user to define audio channels, designate EDID presets and insert audio delays in the outputs to correct any lip-sync problems within the system.
