RS232 is compatible for any serial based computer, IR control and various physical buttons for configurations are also available. Thanks to the community, IR pronto code list is added to iRule and Logitech Harmony for even easier and seamless integration
HDMI/CEC TOTAL COMMANDER
HDfury Vertex² offers a unique CEC command manager, with CEC compatible equipment.
CEC commands allow a HDMI device to send commands to connected HDMI devices.
Highlight HDCP Features:
Unique HDCP Doctor
Providing a total of 15 HDCP 1.4 and 2.2 engines for decryption/encryption, HDfury Diva offers a total HDCP workaround solution including HDCP 2.2 > HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 1.4 > HDCP 2.2 both ways conversion within the same unit. It is capable of connecting any HDCP1.x or HDCP2.x source devices to any HDCP1.x or HDCP 2.x sink devices. Each RX block decrypts the input first whether its 1.x or 2.x. Then each output port can individually encrypts it to 1.4 or 2.2 or not encrypt it at all if it was not encrypted initially. Dual conversion can be operated on all channels simultaneously.
Display HDCP 2.2 Content with Non-HDCP2.2 Compliant Devices
HDCP 2.2 is the new copy-protection scheme for 4K UHD content. 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. Once Vertex² is an active part of your setup such issue will not bother you ever again.
this AV unit is AWESOME!!! If you were ever on the fence, just go ahead, do yourself a favour, and just get it…Vertex 2 lives up to its expectations, and in my humble opinions, it surpasses them! I briefly tried to setup an Integral 2…no comparison (mind you I had some HT audio issues back then, so a little unfair)
Impressions, after setting it up this evening:
A. BUILD – 10/10
It’s impressively solid, case is metal, nothing is flimsy about it. And the OLED screen is a beaut to boot..icing on the cake!
B. FUNCTIONALITY – 10/10
Plug-n-Play just works man. My setup is pretty modest:
2. Cambridge Audio CXUHD
1. Sony 940E (HDR + LLDV capable)
2. Krell Evolution 7073D Pre/Pro driving 5.2 channels so it’s a negative on Dolby Atmos (DTS Master HD or Dolby True HD max)
ATV 4k -> 10ft copper -> (in 2) Vertex² (out TX0) -> 10ft copper -> Sony 940E
CXUHD-> 10ft copper -> (in 1) Vertex² (out TX0) ——————> Sony 940E
———————————-> Vertex² (Audio Out) ————–> Krell 707
Note: I don’t care for CEC or ARC…so all that is disabled at both source and Vertex 2.
I plugged all inputs and outputs per the above. Note: all my HDMI cables are 10 ft copper specked at 18 Gps/600MHz (rated but not certified). Immediately I was able to get both image and sound. Mind you, neither the picture nor the sound were at their peak straight out of the box…enter Webserver as I had to get tweaking
C. FLEXIBILITY – 10/10
As I mentioned above, I didn’t get DV nor HDR in the beginning, so I had to connect the Vertex 2 to my router (CAT5 ethernet) and open up the corresponding IP address
Getting the Webserver up and running was a breeze, just like everything else thus far.
Interesting to note that, every-time I’ve made a selection via the Webserver, within 1-2 sec it took effect
D. CLOSING NOTES:
– the OLED screen is a gem
– setting up is easy and intuitive
– it just works out of the box
– I always like a SOLID and HEAVY feel in all of my AV gear. The Vertex 2 is built better than most UDH BluRay players. I think it even weighs more than some of them despite being 4-5 times smaller in size
– it doesn’t produce any heat…unit is cool as a cucumber after hours being on
– this could be a Jedi Mind Trick the Vertex 2 is playing on me, but I think the video quality (once setup to the correct colour and rez) is better with it. Images are sharper, slightly more vivid. Regardless, I’m certainly enjoying the slight image boost
All in all: CONGRATS HDfury. Well done, an excellent product – top notch!
Received mine, super impressed.
I had Vertex, Vertex pcb2, Integral 2 and now Vertex 2, and the quality that this box is projecting is just phenomenal.
So far don’t even need the IR codes because the auto switching is just that good
Also very impressed with 2-day delivery
OK, you guys probably have became accustom to this but I don’t care, I am an old guys trying to craft some awesome email of gratitude when words simply can not do it justice. What I am attempting to describe here is how you have me dancing with joy, speechless, with a few wow, wow, Yippys flying out of my mouth! This thing is freakin awesome and I have not done anything besides plug it in per your instructions. It has not only simplified my system config but also enhanced the usability and overall quality A/V…. and I was not expecting the super clean overlay which really knocked it out of the galaxy. Thank you!
Now that have seen first hand that the product quality is 10+ I cant wait to start digging into the software and really unleashing this beast.
Thanks again and you guys are truly rock stars
