This 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch over CAT-5 & HDMI outputs w/EDID Learning & Remote IR may be the most innovated HDMI matrix switch in the world as it has 4-single CAT5 Outputs and 4-HDMI Outputs. That means the number of the total outputs is up to 8. The 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch is fully HDMI V1.3 supported and incorporates a large 19-level EDID modes that even includes DVI to prevent EDID loss. The transmission distance reaches up to 100 feet at 1080p.

The 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch with simultaneous CAT5 and HDMI outputs connects four HDMI sources to eight displays. This matrix features four HDMI outputs and each HDMI output is mirrored to provide a CAT5 cable output which runs simultaneously. Connect a supplied Receiver with its AC adapter to each of the CAT5 cable outputs to extend the HDMI signal up to 125 feet for multi-room connectivity. It works with Blu-Ray players, Set-Top boxes, Home Theater PCs, and game consoles that connect to an HDMI display. Any source is accessible at all times by any display by selecting it via the supplied IR Remote Control, RS-232, TCP/IP or by using the selection buttons on the front panel. This 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch supports High Definition Audio and 3D signal compatibility.

NOTE: If both the CAT5/6 and the standard HDMI outputs are used on this 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch, the number of total outputs would be up to 8. Each individual zone (example, VIDEO OUT 1) of the CAT5 and HDMI output would have the same picture, though.

An EDID learning function is added to this 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch to increase its capability of compatible. While using CAT5/6 type cable to connect the TV, the user can optionally remote control the 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch itself or the source from the sink side via an optional IR receiver. The function of the IR control is also based on the routing function do that the user can configure the system much easier than using simple point to point IR connection. To have a secured normal HDMI cable connection, a mounting nut is added on each standard HDMI output port for fixing the cable.

The RS232 control allows the 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch to be controlled by 3rd party control systems like Crestron, AMX and Control4, or any computerized software/hardware control systems. TCP/IP LAN control is also offered as an option for professional system integrators.

The 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch is not only a switcher and extender of multiple HDMI signals to multiple HDMI receivers located remotely, it also passes IR control signals through the IR call-back system to the matrix and HDMI sources for full, independent control of all connected inputs from output locations. Two-way IR Call-back Between matrix, Sources and Displays from Multiple Locations

A key feature on the 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch is discrete IR control of the matrix, sources and displays from any location – so inputs at the matrix end can be controlled at a display location and displays can be controlled at the matrix location. This is accomplished by placing a series of IR Emitters on devices to control and IR Receivers at all locations you wish to control from to enable the IR signal to travel both ways via the single Cat5e/6/7 cable.

Extended Display Identification (EDID) Data is a VESA standard data format that contains basic information about a HDTV and its capabilities, including vendor information, maximum image size, color characteristics, factory pre-set timings, frequency range limits, and character strings for the monitor name and serial number. The information is stored in the display and is used to communicate with the system through a Display Data Channel (DDC ), which sites between the monitor and the source device. The system uses this information for configuration purposes, so the HDTV and system can work together.

While using UTP type cable to connect the sink, the user can remote control the matrix itself or the source from the sink side via an optional IR receiver. The function of the IR control is also based on the routing function so you can configure the system much easier than using simple point to point IR connection.

4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch USERS GUIDE


Why not buy this 4X8 HDMI Matrix Switch today?

Q: I can get a picture from the 4 HDMI outputs but not CAT5/6 outputs.
By default the extenders have ARC ON and equalization switches set to 1-1 so unplug the HDMI receiver, turn off ARC and change equalization switches to 0-0.

Q: Can I use unpowered HDMI over CAT5/6 extenders with this matrix?
We don't recommend them with our matrices, or anyone elses, due to them consuming power from the matrix and the matrices are not designed to power many external devices.

Consider the example of 9 - HDMI balun transmitters that need 0.5a amp each to power it times 9 or 4.5 amps the matrix would have to supply. The power supply of this matrix is rated at 12v at 3.5 amp so in that example the matrix would probably break down and your warranty may be voided. See the companion powered HDMI extenders in the above OPTIONS that have 2-AC adapters.

HDMI cables with built-in boosters also consume power also and we don't recommend more than 2, if at all. You must use our low power ones, also.

Q: Will the Remote IR work with all remote controls?
The IR repeater works well with single band remotes but may not work with multi-band remotes used on a few satellite boxes. Look for 2 emitters on the nose of the remote. If you are pre-wiring make sure to run a 3rd cat5 cable so you can add an IR system that can handle multi-band remotes. If you have multi-band remotes you might want to upgrade your remotes to UHF, which goes through walls. This will bypass the IR system completely on the matrix.
