The Pulse-Eight Neo XMR 6 Zone Video Matrix has the following features: 


True 4K UHD
The best possible image quality is a key element to video distribution, the Neo boasts Best-in-Class lossless video with full 4K/60Hz 4:4:4 UHD in any zone at any time.

HDR and HLG Support
Full 4K/60Hz 18Gbps with HDR and HLG ensures dynamic resolutions on even the latest displays from the latest providers without compromising the quality of the input.

Audio Extraction

Route the audio from any HDMI input via the audio extraction outputs, with the option of optical or digital coax output connections.
DSC Visually Lossless Compression
Using the latest technology to distribute a true 4K UHD, DSC (Display Stream Compression) is a visually lossless 4K low latency video stream allowing for a full-colour gamut to the display.

Unlike other compressions, DSC preserves the 10-bit or 12-bit HDR signals rather than reduce to 8-bit then reproduce. This produces the most accurate picture quality available today.

Dolby Downmix

Offering ultimate flexibility, the ability to downmix multichannel audio from any of the HDMI or digital audio inputs to stereo audio outputs enables transmission of 4K sources to anywhere.
HDMI 2.0 extension
Extending the latest technology is paramount and this includes the latest HDMI 2.0. Utilizing up to 18.0 Gbit/s speed, it is capable of handling 4K video with 60 Hz with 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 chroma subsampling with relative ease.

With the added support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), displays are reproduced with higher luminance and accurate colour saturation.

HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC)

Transfer audio that originates locally (such as a smart TV app) and back to the system to link to an external audio device, namely a soundbar, receiver or multizone product without the need for additional cables or hassle.
