6x6 HDBaseT™ Matrix - 100m (4K up to 70m), Bi-directional IR & RS-232, PoH (PoE), Simultaneous HDBaseT™/HDMI Outputs, Audio Breakout, ARC enabled, HDCP 2.2 compliant


Our Platinum 6x6 HDBaseT™ Matrix delivers a range of industry leading features. The PLA66ARC-V2 is a 4K HDCP 2.2 compliant 6x6 matrix, transmitting HDMI, Bi-directional IR and PoH (Power over HDBaseT™) up to lengths of 100m over a single CAT cable.

The matrix also provides advanced features including independent audio routing, Audio Return Channel (ARC), Optical Audio Return, simultaneous HDBaseT™/HDMI outputs, single HDBaseT™ input, LAN / Ethernet serving, RS-232 pass through to enable seamless 3rd party control integration and web interface module for control and configuration of the matrix.

The matrix can be configured using the Blustream Software, allowing the user to define audio channels, designate EDID presets and insert audio delays to outputs to correct any lip-sync issues within the distribution system.
