MX2-8x8-DH-8DPi-A is a member of the Lightware MX2 standalone matrix switcher series, supporting uncompromised 4K UHD resolution at 60Hz with RGB 4:4:4 colorspace and with down-conversion capabilities to 4:2:2. The DisplayPort inputs on the MX2 Dpi series routers allow connecting DisplayPort 1.2 video sources directly, without the need of adapters or dongles.

This device is fully HDMI 2.0 compatible with DisplayPort input signals transformed to HDMI for signal management. Input signals that do not fit in the HDMI 2.0 bandwidth of 18GHz can be converted to 4:2:2 while maintaining bit depth thus allowing for HDR transmission. The switch is particularly suitable for fix-install applications and future-proof operation centers, for installations where HDMI 2.0 compliant input and output ports are required.

MX2-8x8-DH-4DPi-A supports 3D, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio and also HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Proprietary Lightware technologies like Pixel Accurate Reclocking and Advanced EDID Management are included and can be controlled via the built-in website.

MX2-8x8-DH-4DPi-A allows audio de-embedding to its audio output ports.

Crosspoint switching functions are available via keys on the front panel.


The matrix is recognized by the connected DisplayPort source as a DP-to-HDMI converter, and video input signals of 3840x2160 4:4:4 RGB 10 bit are converted to 3840x2160 4:2:2 YCbCr 10 bit or 3840x2160 4:4:4 RGB 8 bit on the DisplayPort input.

Furthermore, it’s important to note that DP Multi-Stream (MST), Dual-mode DisplayPort (DP++), Adaptive-Sync and FreeSync™ are not supported, and neither is HDR on DisplayPort outputs.
