Key Digital KD-VW4x4ProK 4K video wall processor now

New York, NY, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MOUNT VERNON, NY, Sept. 29, 2022 — Designed to cost-effectively deliver sophisticated video wall displays using consumer panels and monitors, the new Key Digital® KD-VW4x4ProK 4K UHD video wall processor and transparent matrix switcher is an easy-to-implement, all-in-one solution with four HDMI inputs and four HDMI outputs plus four UHDoTP (Ultra High Definition over Twisted Pair) outputs mirroring providing signal extension to four included KD-EXMLVRx. UHDoTP receivers. Introduced at InfoComm 2022 by Key Digital – an award-winning developer and manufacturer of advanced digital video processing, video signal distribution, collaboration and communication solutions – the KD-VW4x4ProK is now available from stock.

“Creating an eye-catching video wall has never been easier or more affordable,” said DeWayne Rains, vice president of sales for Key Digital. “All the hardware needed to drive a quad-monitor display is included, and the KD-VW4x4ProK comes preconfigured so that a few menu keystrokes are all it takes to have the system up and running within minutes of complete mounting and interconnecting the monitor. Plus, the system is easy to operate from the free KD iOS app and KDMS™ Windows software or via a built-in web GUI. Mirrored HDMI and CAT6 AV outputs are ideal for dual video walls displaying identical content.The KD-VW4x4ProK is perfect for video walls and large format viewing applications, including bars and restaurants, sports and game caves, houses of worship, entertainment centers, museums and esports arenas.

The KD-VW4x4ProK has features that optimize its use with consumer video displays and televisions. Its Panel Flip function rotates the image 180 degrees on the desired outputs, allowing the top row of monitors to be installed upside down, joining the often narrow sides and top of the display frame to minimize visibility of the bezel. Bezel compensation extends the image off the screen to create smooth screen transitions between co-joined monitors. Five supported video wall layouts (2×2, 4×1, 3×1, 2 sets of 2×1, and 1×4) make the KD-VW4x4ProK ideal for building cost-effective video walls for any application. 4K/UHD content up to 3840 x 21640p 4:2:0 at 60fps is supported, with native down-conversion allowing integration with older 720p and 1080p displays.

“Alternatively,” adds Rains, “the KD-VW4x4ProK can be used as a 4×4 video matrix allowing viewing of four video sources on up to eight displays via the mirrored HDMI and UHDoTP outputs.” Source selection in video wall or matrix modes is seamless.

Audio routing is independent of video source selection with de-embedding of two-channel analog audio formats and Dolby/DTS 5.1 surround over optical digital connections on each KD-VW4x4ProK output.

In addition to front panel control, the KD-VW4x4ProK joins a suite of IP Key Digital enabled products that are web UI and iOS app ready KD. Installers and users can easily switch inputs and control Key Digital systems as if they were standing in front of the unit – all from a Windows PC running the free Key Digital Management Software™ Pro (KDMS™ Pro) or a portable iOS device with the Free KD app. Mirrored UHDoTP outputs provide two-way AV and IR signal extension (up to 35m [115ft] at 4K) and PoC (Power over CAT) from a single CAT6 cable – IR remote signals travel with AV signals to KD-EXMLVRx units for display control or for source control system from the monitor installation location. System control is also available via RS-232 and supported TCP/IP control systems via an open API.

The long list of content standards supported by the KD-VW4x4ProK includes HDCP 2.2 anti-piracy protocol; the HDR10 standard for high dynamic range video; and EDID management for display recognition. It also offers deep color support up to UHD/4K 30Hz 4:4:4/12bit or 60Hz 4:4:4/8bit. A comprehensive buffer system handles HDCP authentication, EDID control handshakes, and TMDS re-timing/signal regeneration for serial data optimization.

The Key Digital KD-VW4x4ProK is available for immediate shipment at an MSRP of $2950 (USD).
