VIDEO:

This unit's currently installed video card supports:
• HDMI 1.4a
• 1080p, 3D, Audio Return Channel, Ethernet over HDMI
• Does NOT support modern 4k resolution formats

An upgrade* available separately from Datasat supports:
• HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2
• Modern 4k resolution formats

Note - we often suggest to our clients that the video be sent directly to the display to achieve the best results. There is little reason to go though a processor, so the lack of a more recent HDMI/HDCP is not really an issue here.

On the back you'll find evidence of its top notch construction, utilizing balanced XLR connectors for all audio outputs, and super high quality RCA jacks for analog audio inputs. 

It comes in the original manufacturer packaging with a power cable, nothing else.
