If you need to matrix switch analog right and left audio also see the above Companion analog audio matrix switch. 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.

The Colorado 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.
  3. IR control using your standard remote.
  4. Zerokey can learn any remote keys to control the Colorado
  5. RS-232 control with a PC or your existing home theater controller.
  6. Optional iPad App
This Colorado 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch allows you to matrix send 16 video sources to 16 HDTV's and expand it to a true 16X160 component video matrix switcher, all with digital audio, by buying additional Colorado's and front end splitters. The Colorado 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch is the most cost effective high performance matrix switch on the the market. It supports both HD component video and digital audio, plus offers 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 Colorado-AV 16x16 Audio Matrix Switch with built-in volume controls.

Control of this switcher can be managed via its front-panel control, IR remote control, RS-232, or our optional RS-232 to Ethernet Converter. The RS-232 to Ethernet Converter allows control of the unit from anywhere in the world given you know how to write RS-232 code and have the correct serial Ethernet hardware.

TIP 1: If you have composite video needs the green input of the component cable in and out can be used. The matrix switcher however DOES NOT convert composite to component and the outputs ZONES must be followed. Composite video cable lengths up to around 500 feet are fine for composite.

TIP 2: This 16x16 Component Video Matrix Switch switches both 16 component video and 14 digital audio signals and most HDTV's do not support digital audio inputs, only right and left analog stereo audio. If you have a few HDTV's that need audio you can buy our Digital Audio to Stereo Audio Converters so to listen to the speakers in the HDTV.

If you buy the Colorado-Audio companion 16X16 audio matrix switcher you get a 256 step input audio volume equalization. This feature allows you to set gain/attenuation for each audio input. The intent is to equalize the volume from all your sources, eliminating the need to manually adjust the volume every time you select that satellite box with the low level output.

The companion 16X16 audio matrix switcher still has the programmable OUTPUT volume settings and the above two work together to provide seamless stable volume control. If you haven't yet had a chance to read about the volume control features on the companion 16X16 audio matrix switcher, I'd like to remind you that Snap AV makes a good, inexpensive 12 channel fixed gain power amp that pairs perfectly with the companion 16X16 audio matrix switcher. These together give you a complete solution for driving in wall speakers, and will save you hundreds of dollars from your current solution.

This Colorado 16X16 matrix switcher allows any 16 of the 16 component video and 14 digital ( not right and left analog audio ) audio inputs to be switched to any of the 16 independent component and 14 digital 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 above companion 16X16 AV matrix switcher.

TIP 3: Long component cables can be used depending on the specs of the cable. As with any cable at 1080i, look at the loss per meter at 30Mhz. Don't go beyond -3dB.

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.

This 16X16 Component Video Matrix Switcher Video distribution system 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 of the Colorado use the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get.

ZeroKey Technology: There is no remote control that comes with the Colorado as 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 Colorado can be reprogrammed as much as you like.

Free Windows control software (See More Pictures TAB): VSXCtl provides a free fully customizable control package for our switches.  It can run on any windows platform, and can connect to the unit using many common options. VSXCtl is primarily targeted for commercial applications in order to provide an easy to use control solution as no additional cost.  VSXCtl can also be used as a debug tool during installation, a supplemental control method to an IR based system, or a primary residential control system in cost sensitive applications.

VSXCtl 1.0 features
  • Up to 16 output zones and 16 input zones per instance  (multiple instances can be run for larger systems)
  • Basic mode operation (Video & audio outputs linked)
  • Volume, balance, and input gain control
  • Full configurablity of input and output zone names
  • Full configurability of Flash mode slot names
  • 2 way communication for device status
Connect VSXCtl to your matrix using:
  • Direct connection to your computers RS232 port
  • USB control using a generic USB=>RS232 adapter
  • Ethernet control using our Ethernet=>RS232 adapter
HDMI Expansion Capability: The Colorado has the ability to seamlessly add HDMI matrix switching capability. Simply purchase one of our HDMI matrix switches and connect the RS-232 port from the HDMI switch to the expansion port on the Colorado. You will be able to switch the HDMI matrix through the same control interface you use to switch the Colorado. No need for a separate remote or RS-232 controller.

How to program a remote control to operate a Colorado 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 below Pronto codes and upload these to the 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

Q: How do I change the matrix front panel firmware from 1 to 16 to 17 to 32 or 33 to 48, etc when I add on new matrices?
A:
See this video.

Q: I see used Philips Prontos on eBay for $50, will they work?
A:
Model TSU2000, 3000, 6000, 7000 are known to work and can be used with the Colorado line of matrix switchers to 16x64. See the .ccf codes in the above MANUALS Tab.

Q: What is ZeroKey control?
A:
There is no remote control that comes with the Colorado as 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 Colorado can be reprogrammed as much as you like.

Q: I have serial control of the Colorado 16x16 matrix working now. Is there a way I can have the initial power up state of the matrix be something other than all channels be 0?
A:
Yes. Set the switch to whatever state you want the power on default to be. Select CF3F on the front panel, press and hold right button for 6 seconds. This stores current settings as power on default
