HDfury Linker Key Features
Ultra Scaling up to 4K60 4:4:4 600MHz
HDfury Linker offers impressive scaling modes to ensure that any HDMI/HDCP revision sink device get fed at its max capabilities ALWAYS and GUARANTEED.
Featuring Upscale, Downscale, Passthru and Bypass mode as well as Chroma Conversion and Color Depth modification on the fly at 8, 10, 12 and 16bit for FHD, UHD and DCI 4096x2160p.
Dedicated HDCP Doctor
Providing a total of 4 HDCP 1.4 and 2.2 engines for decryption/encryption, HDfury Linker offers a workaround for HDCP issue including HDCP 2.2 > HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 1.4 > HDCP 2.2 both ways conversion within the same unit.
Each RX block decrypts the input first whether its 1.x or 2.x. Then output port can individually encrypts it to 1.4 or 2.2 or not encrypt it at all if it was not encrypted initially.
Unlike HDfury Integral that can convert any signals within the 600MHz bandwidth of HDMI2.0a, thus including 1080i, 3D signals, PC signals and all SD/HD/FHD/UHD standard formats, HDfury Linker only support HDCP conversion for SD/HD/FHD/UHD signals up to 600MHz.
1080i, 3D signals, PC signals (except a few manually added) cannot be HDCP converted with the HDfury Linker, they go through in Bypass mode (untouched/untouchable).
Display HDCP 2.2 Content with Non-HDCP2.2 Compliant Devices
HDCP 2.2 is the new copy-protection scheme for 4K UHD content. Not only it is not backward compatible but many recent 4K devices don’t even support it.
Source devices, including media servers and head-ends like Netflix, will encode their 4K content with this new scheme. TVs must be HDCP 2.2-enabled to play it, and everything in the video chain including switches and receivers must be compliant as well, or the display will go dark and/or display a HDCP error message.
Bad news for consumers who have purchased expensive, high-bandwidth, processor-rich switchers, receivers and displays to accommodate 4K. While the newer products may support the bandwidth needs of 4K, they won’t play copy-protected works until HDfury Linker is an active part of the setup.
2×1 Switcher up to 4K60 4:4:4 600MHz 18Gbps
Switching between 2 inputs up to 4K60 4:4:4 600MHz signal and scaling through all HDMI levels and revision is now a reality, thanx to USB or push button, you can easily switch between 2 inputs that will be scaled to one output. HDCP conversion can be configured and applied on the fly in order to always output the type of HDCP signal encryption that your display or sink device is expecting.
HDR and Infoframe Metadata Live Injector and Extractor with Sound
The HDfury Linker is capable of injecting and extracting live Infoframe and HDR metadata at any resolution and in real time while keeping HDMI sound.
A further software solution for a complete real time handling of infoframe and HDR metadata will be available for the Linker: here from our exclusive licensed partner AV TOP.
Advanced EDID Management
Advanced EDID Management available from the HDfury Linker with either:
A Selected EDID bank, a Custom uploaded EDID, a Sink mode EDID or a Fixed basic EDID.
Sniff EDID from connected sink devices, Save, Edit, Load any custom EDID table at anytime.
Select and pick any EDID of your choice from a list of 25 EDID tables, it loads and reset HPD to present your chosen one automatically.
Sink EDID mode feature will create a custom EDID by mixing sink EDID connected with some EDID flags such as: YCbCr/BT2020/HDR/3D*
Control and Update
USB GUI Utility via Windows PC and various physical buttons for configurations are available.
External Wi-Fi/Bluetooth dongle for iOS/Android control might be available in the future.
Rec.709<>BT2020 via 3×3 Matrix and RGB Coeff
There is chance the 4K Linker will be able to convert 709<>BT2020, both ways, in the near future but it’s not yet a guaranteed feature. Work in progress.
