Intelix HDshāk® processing guarantees HDMI signal distribution.

HDshāk® eliminates many of the challenges contractors face when designing and installing high-definition systems, including limited keys in source equipment, HDMI transmission distances, and limited bandwidth concerns HDshāk® technology delivers the highest level of EDID negotiation, ensuring proper source & destination handshaking over twisted pair every time.

Smart Negotiation

Avoids unnecessary signal interruptions and ensures every destination can view every source no matter what resolution.

The chain is only as strong as its weakest link, but that doesn't mean the link has to break the chain. Each channel within Intelix switchers is discreet, allowing multiple signal resolutions to transmit simultaneously from sources to destinations-and switching one source won't affect destinations viewing a different source. Plus, Intelix HDshāk® processing automatically determines the common resolution between multiple destinations and instructs the source device to output a common resolution that everyone can view.

EDID Storing

Increases matrix switch speeds and ensures brilliant video quality.

HDMI destination devices transmit their display properties-known as EDID-to source. This ensures both sources and destinations cooperate on aspect ratios, resolutions, and refresh rates. So what happens if there is a corrupted or incompatible EDID signal-a common problem when switching, splitting, or extending HDMI? HDshāk® processing stores and consolidates destination EDID at every matrix input. This not only reduces the incidence for error and guarantees a proper hand shake, but it also greatly increases matrix switching speeds. Plus, HDshāk® technology includes pre-stored EDID with the most common display settings, ensuring installers have one more trick up their sleeves.

Bandwidth Limiting

Increases twisted pair cable make & grade compatibility, and guarantees required highperformance HDMI features are delivered.

Twisted pair cable simply cannot match HDMI cable's bandwidth carrying capabilities. So how do you push a high-bandwidth signal down a restricted cable? HDshāk�� processing allows the installer to select which HDMI elements are transmitted over the twisted pair cabling, effectively allowing customisation of the signal based on the installation's requirements. For example, elements such as deep color and multi-channel digital audio may be disabled to free bandwidth for signals that are required.

Dynamic Key Processing

Dynamic key processing allows devices with limited keys to be transmitted to numerous destinations

To ensure the highest quality native audio/video signal and to prevent unauthorized signal copying, HDMI devices contain signal encryption known as keys-and each device has a limited number. So what happens when a source doesn't have enough keys to talk to all of the required destinations? Intelix switchers employ independent key negotiation on the inputs and outputs of the matrix, thereby allowing limited key source devices to talk to numerous destination devices. Intelix switchers accept incoming audio, video and keys from source devices, process and store the source keys, and then create a new key with the audio and video for each output destination.
