Raising the bar for screen management, the E2 presentation systems provide superior image quality, exceptional input and output density, great expandability and durability. Supporting native 4K input and output, it was the first screen management system to manage 4K projector blends with refresh rates up to 60Hz with full 4:4:4 color sampling and 12bit processing. A truly versatile system, it offers eight mixable PGM outputs and four scaled Aux Outputs for full show control within a single box. Multiple E2s can be linked together to process extremely large pixel canvases supporting the largest displays available.

Go 4K all the way

With up to 40 inputs and 18 outputs, the E2 Gen 2 processor provides full screen control. The E2 Gen 2 offers 16 4K inputs and 8 4K outputs enabling impressive pixel processing power with increased processing speed. Whether native or scaled inputs, single cable 4K60p, two connectors or four, this HDCP-compliant system manages it all. Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond the capabilities of a single box without the need for additional external processing and matrix routing to distribute the signals.
