Calling it “the world’s slimmest, lightest, most reliable, and economical line of 4K compliant connectivity products in the pro AV marketplace,” KanexPro announces its UltraSlim lineup at InfoComm 2015.

It includes the 4×1 HDMI Switcher with Audio De-Embedder and KanexPro 1×2 and 1×4 HDMI distribution amplifiers. KanexPro says the lineup provide solutions for integration clients challenged by the need to broadcast uncompressed 4K Ultra HD signals in limited space settings.

They’re ideal for multiplying HDMI signal into two or more 4K displays such as running identical content on digital signage applications situation and executive briefing rooms, or switching multiple HDMI devices in crowded classrooms behind a lectern, in a hotel or business, according to KanexPro.
