“Cutting-edge technologies and professional features were previously reserved for the few who could afford them,” said Kashyap Khetia, senior product marketing manager for KanexPro. “However, something that was a major barrier for smaller markets, such as small government sectors, house of worship centers, education, and sports bars, is becoming less of a concern as Ultra HD 4K becomes more affordable and available to everyone. With today’s advancements, affordability does not mean a sacrifice in quality, as KanexPro’s HDMI 2.0 Matrix Switcher includes premium features, such as web-based GUI control and automated switching, which will help deliver a professional substance to the integrator and our final customer.”
