Celebrating the most noteworthy new products and technologies of Cedia Expo 2019, CE Pro is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s CE Pro BEST (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) Product Awards.HDMI/HDBaseT Extenders Hdfury Maestro
After having released the world first and features rich 600MHz splitter in 2015 with Integral and what stands today as the world’s best and award-winning pocket-sized splitter/scaler design with Vertex in 2017.
We are proud to announce the soon availability of Hdfury Maestro, another masterpiece of work from our dev team, build to disrupt and revolutionize the HDbaseT segment of the AV World.
4K HDR 18Gbps/600MHz transmission via Ethernet cable (HDBaseT) has never been so powerful.
Hdfury Maestro Hardware-wise,
You have the Hdfury Maestro TX (Central) featuring 4 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI video output with scaling option and 1 dedicated HDMI full audio output at 720p or 1080p, LAN Control, HDbaseT output, RS232, L/R stereo or Optical 5.1 output, IR TX, IR RX, IR sensor, IR window, OLED display and 4 buttons on the side allowing to enter/exit and perform change in the device system menu.
On the other end, the Hdfury Maestro RX device self-powered by the TX-Central is featuring HDbaseT input, 2 LAN port to share Internet connection with game console, TV or media player, 2 HDMI outputs with scaling capabilities, RS232, L/R stereo or Optical 5.1 output, SPDIF input, IR sensor, IR TX, OLED display and 4 buttons on the side to enter/exit system menu and perform changes in settings.
All inputs are capable of 4K HDR/HLG/DV/HDR10+ up to 18Gbps for video and support any sound format in existence today, all video outputs are capable of outputting 18Gbps and all sound formats as well whether they are on the TX-Central or the RX one.
Both units are always running in a Matrix / Scaler mode ensuring your setup remains optimized at its best capabilities.
|Both Hdfury Maestro TX Central and RX Unit are providing real-time signal info on their respective OLED screens. |
OLED is also used to display the system menu and allow navigation via push buttons on each unit.
Hdfury Maestro Software-wise,
Hdfury Maestro is the first device to provide you full control via the embedded and brand new HDfury webserver! The need for a dedicated computer with a special driver to run configuration software or update is now a thing of the past!
You can use any web browser based device such as any computer or smartphone to access, control and update Maestro TX Central and Hdfury Maestro RX (each one has its own webserver), the process is as easy as visiting a web page.
We went further than anything we ever made and fully filled Hdfury Maestro with revisited and improved HDR management features. We also added some new features never seen before such as TMDS switching for all inputs which allow auto-switch sources such as ATV4K, X1X or Shield that no other switch on the market is able to auto-switch.
[16-JAN-2019] World First eARC HDMI2.1 breakthrough:
Hdfury Maestro TX now supports ARC and eARC sound extraction from TV for up to Atmos high bit rate over TrueHD forwarded to any AVR input via Maestro TX HDMI audio output (ARC-Key feature)!
All HDfury legacy features remain present, each input EDID can be set individually from a list of 100 EDID, HDCP conversion, Scaling and signal operations such as Chroma/Color depth/Color space, PJ&Display macro, Infoframes modes, CEC command, ARC, HTPC mode, special modes, sound extraction and more.
All setup information is visible at first sight via Hdfury Maestro OLED, On-Screen Display or Webserver.
Hdfury Maestro is the HDbaseT smart solution and converter for interoperability between any HDMI revision equipment, for content creators, calibrators, streamers, digital entertainment centers, UHDTV retail, show sites, data centers, schools, conference or home cinema and much more.
Please note that some Hdfury Maestro other unique and special features are planned and still under development, this page will be updated as we progress.
You can purchase and use the Hdfury Maestro Central alone if you need 4 inputs + 4K HDR/HLG/HDR10+ or DV pass-thru and Full HDMI audio extraction to feed older AVR at 720p or 1080p while still enjoying unrestricted 4K on your main display.
