This 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch allows you to send 16 sources to 16 HDTV's and expand it to a true 16X32 component video matrix switcher, all with digital audio.

Ever wished you could view full quality HDTV throughout your house without a closet full of equipment in every room? This 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch integrates everything you need to distribute all your HDTV video and digital audio sources to all the displays throughout your home.

The 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch is the most cost effective high performance matrix switch on the the market. We support both HD component video and digital audio, plus we offer easy integration with external HDMI matrix switches. If you need to add right and left analog audio and composite video switching, pair this switch with CMX1616A.

Because it is a matrix switcher, it allows any input to be routed to any output; or the same input to be routed to all outputs or any combination.

This 16X16 matrix switcher can be expanded to a true 16X32 Matrix Switcher with the above optional hardware & cables. Two units must be purchased together with the expansion cables and electronics. Any remote control can be used and will control the 16 inputs as well as 16 or 32 outputs although we recommend the above Sony as it has enough LCD buttons to operate multiple inputs and outputs. We supply the code to program it.

This new CMX1616V has been designed to better fit the unique needs of you.

Key new features of the CMX line:

  • Unified IR and RS232 command set across entire line, 4x4 to 16x16 and beyond.
  • Programmable volume control on analog audio using
  • Burr-Brown amplifiers
  • New front panel design
  • Support for downloadable firmware updates over RS-232 Improved compatibility with difficult displays
  • HDMI matrix expansion capability
  • Programmable power on default: You can save the state of all outputs to flash memory. This state will be restored on power up.
  • Basic mode for CMX1616V and CMX1616A: You can now link all output type switching just like you can on CMX88
This 16X16 matrix switcher allows any 16 of the 16 component video and digital ( not right and left analog audio ) audio inputs to be switched to any of the 16 independent component and audio outputs and is perfect for a bar, restaurant or multi-room home theater system.

Analog right and left audio can be added by buying the companion 16X16 AV matrix switcher.

The entire product line offers unmatched upgrade capability. Please call us at 800-841-9238, tell us what product you have and we'll show you how to upgrade it with a newer switcher.

The 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch Features

  1. 16 1080p component video input sets
  2. 16 independently controllable 1080p component video output sets
  3. 14 digital audio input sets (8 coaxial, 6 TOSLINK)
  4. 14 independently controllable digital audio output set with transcoding (8 coaxial, 6 TOSLINK)
  5. Remote IR control with Zerokey code learning ability
  6. RS-232 input for serial control
  7. RS-232 output for expansion and HDMI matrix control
  8. Flash based micro controller which allows firmware updates over the RS-232 port
  9. Professional quality video amps capable of driving cables up to 300 feet
  10. Designed and tested to pass all video signals up to and including 1080p
  11. Steel rack mountable case
  12. Optional rack mounting ears
The 16X16 Component Video Matrix Switcher can be controlled by several methods, you can choose the one the best fits your home theater control needs.
  1. Manual control using the front panel buttons
  2. IR control using a programmable remote. You can download the Pronto codes
  3. IR control using your standard remote.
  4. Zerokey can learn any remote keys to control the CMX1616V
  5. RS-232 control with a PC or your existing home theater controller.
This 16X16 Component Video Matrix Switcher Video distribution: The CMX1616V is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home. Many vendors claim their products can do this, but very few can accomplish this without distortion of the video. The most important amplifier design factors in driving long cables are source impedance matching, output connector quality, amplifier bandwidth, and amplifier current drive and slew rate.

The output amplifiers use the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get.

ZeroKey Technology: The remote control interface can use ZeroKey infrared code cloning to map any remote control key to each of the inputs and outputs. ZeroKey technology is compatible with virtually all remote controls, and does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote. 

ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory, and you will not need to reprogram even if you lose power. If you buy a new remote in the future, don't worry, the CMX1616V can be reprogrammed as much as you like.

Alternately, you can buy the above Sony programmable universal remote control and we will furnish you the software to fully control this 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch. Just send a separate email for the software.

HDMI Expansion Capability: The CMX1616V has the ability to seamlessly add HDMI matrix switching capability. Simply purchase one of our HMX series rack mountable HDMI matrix switches and connect the RS-232 port from the HMX switch to the expansion port on the CMX1616V. You will be able to switch the HDMI matrix through the same control interface you use to switch the CMX1616V. No need for a separate remote or RS-232 controller.

How to program a remote control to operate a 16X32 component matrix switcher: To do a full 16x32 component video you will need 34 remote keys. Generally the remote control should be a programmable remote. In that case, the setup is very easy.
  • Download the Pronto codes from our web site, upload these to their remote (if it doesn't support CCF, you can use the HEX format)
  • Use the 16 output select and 16 input select codes as is, these will work for both switches
  • For switch one, the "V" select code will just be the default
  • For switch two, copy the "A" select code to a "V2" select code
  • On switch two, learn the "V2" code into zerokey IR code 0.
  • You're done.
  • To control outputs 1-16 send Code "V", send output select code, send input select code
  • To control outputs 17-32 send Code "V2", send output select code (output -16), send input select code
