Pulse-Eight neo:8a video matrix now available from Invision

Invision has announced it is now shipping Pulse-Eight’s flagship neo:8a fixed format 8x10 HDBaseT matrix.

Building on the success of the neo:8, the neo:8a model features the added benefit of a dedicated audio breakout from each HDMI source at no extra cost, making it an ideal solution for extending into audio distribution and amplifier products. 

Supporting HDBaseT Class B, the neo:8a can extend 4K up to four metres and 1080p up 70 metres. Featuring CEC, users can control all their devices from the original TV remote control to eliminate the need for multiple remotes to control different devices. 

Matrixes have previously offered remotes with eight or 16 buttons, requiring multiple presses to get video to the correct TV. However, Pulse-Eight’s designers have eliminated this problem by creating Contextual IR, reducing the number of buttons to eight – one for each possible input – allowing the user to select the output number and watch the chosen source instantly, whatever room they are in.

Pulse-Eight has enhanced the user experience by configuring the neo:8a to allow access from devices such as mobile, tablet or desktop PC in any browser. 

With the neo Alexa skill enabled on an Amazon Echo or Dot, users can use voice commands to switch their Tv on or off, or to switch to other devices. 

Using remote monitoring, Pulse-Eight can troubleshoot any issues to the system.
