Key Digital® Adds “3D Ready” Approval to HDMI Products

Mount Vernon, NY. Key Digital Systems, Inc, the Experts in Digital Video Technology and Solutions, has begun marketing it’s compatibility with the latest HDMI Features supporting 3D. Key Digital premieres its 3D ready line-up of HDMI Switchers, Distribution Amplifiers, CAT5 Baluns and HDMI cables.

3D is arguably the most talked about technology to emerge today, and sales of 3D-capable televisions will reach an estimated 3.4 million sets in 2010. As the leading manufacturer of innovative video products, Key Digital has multiple solutions which enable the integration of 3D into custom A/V systems:

KD-HDSW Phantom Series line of HDMI switchers, Available in 2×1, 3×1 and 4×1 models, the KD-HDSW series controls EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to allow the flexibility to master the complexities of HDMI and reliably switch all of your 3D sources.

The KD-HDDA Phantom Series HDMI distribution amplifiers also feature Key Digital’s patented EDID Control technology, and are available in 1×2, 1×3, 1×4, and 1×8 models. These products also enable the distribution of a 3D signal to multiple displays.

KD-HDMS Hercules Series HDMI Matrix Switcher allows a 3D source to output 3D content to compatible displays via the 3D EDID File of the display equipment, or via a pool of default 3D EDID handshakes. (NOTE: 3D approval Nov. 2010)

Many of today’s installations require the use of cost effective CAT5 cabling. The KD-CATHD, KD-BBTX, and KD-BBRX Fat Cat Series HDMI Baluns will also extend 3D content via CAT5 cabling up to 100 ft.

The Red Iguana and HD Python (excluding 75 ft length) Series HDMI cables are tested to pass 3D Stereoscopic signal formats plus support all the features of the 1.4 Standard including 4K – 4096 x 2160/24 video resolution for commercial applications such as Digital Movie Theaters, CAD, Post Production, CG Graphics etc. They also offer full support for lossless digital audio formats such as Dolby® TrueHD and Dolby® Digital Plus and DTS™-HD Master Audio.
