E2 GEN 2

Only %1 left

With up to 40 inputs and 18 outputs, the E2 Gen 2 processor provides full screen control.  The E2 Gen 2 offers 16 4K inputs and 8 4K outputs enabling impressive pixel processing power with increased processing speed. Whether native or scaled inputs, single cable 4K60p, two connectors or four, this HDCP-compliant system manages it all.  Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond the capabilities of a single box without the need for additional external processing and matrix routing to distribute the signals.
