Bring Collaboration Spaces to the Next Level

The UCX-2x2-H30 universal matrix switcher enhances and extends the possibilities of a meeting room and allows meeting participants to easily use their own devices such as laptops, and preferred video conference platforms while also to utilize the available assets of the meeting space, just like the HDMI displays, room cameras and other USB peripherals.

Exploit the Possibilities of USB connectivity

The device is designed to be a centerpiece of any collaboration space, and can be connected to four USB peripherals via USB-A type connectors.

Hosts then can connect their own devices to the UCX-2x2-H30 and gain control over the rooms peripherals. By simply using a combination of HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen1 connections, video and audio signals can be transferred up to a resolution of 4k@60Hz 4:4:4 and data speeds up to 5 Gbps.

The device allows up to two hosts to be connected to the system, and also ensures quick and easy switching between the users. Two sets of HDMI 2.0 and USB inputs makes this universal matrix switcher a perfect fit for smaller meeting areas, involving 4-8 people.

Automated room control features are also included through GPIO ports, besides of RS-232 and occupancy sensor connectivity. The switcher also thrives when it comes to audio capabilities, offering analog audio de-embedding feature.

Additional Features and Capabilities

Security is always a key concern in the corporate world, therefore our engineers ensured that the UCX-2x2-H30 adheres to the strictest security standards. A secure corporate Ethernet interface ensures secure device control and configuration under the SSH, SSL and HTTPS standards.

The Taurus UCX offers noiseless operation in most environments where conditions are considered regular, just like in a meeting room where temperatures do not exceed the low 20s in Celsius or about 70-75 in Fahrenheit. The built-in fan is designed to operate only if the device is installed in a cabinet or other environment with unsufficient air-flow. We specified a maximum of 30dBA noise level for our ventilation system in a meeting room, to comply with the NC-30 and NR 30 standards.

In today’s collaboration environments, it is key that the technology offers flexible and versatile ways for participants to unlock the full potential of a collaboration space and they clearly demand to not be limited by the default options offered by their meeting rooms.

The TAURUS UCX product family is Lightware’s ground-breaking innovation offered for this increasingly growing demand for cutting-edge solutions in the world of Unified Communications.
