8-8 HDMI Switcher Over CAT5

routes HDMI high definition audio/video from any of eight HDMI sources to any of 8 displays over single CAT5/6 cables. Because it is a matrix switcher, it allows any input to be sent to any output; or the same input to be sent to all outputs, or any combination. This 8x8 HDMI matrix gives you over 17,000,000 input and output combinations. The 8 - HDMI receivers are included in the price. It also includes a remote control with 28 discrete keys. The matrix extends an HDMI audio and video signal up to ~85 feet with a single CAT5e "solid" cable per output and ~100 feet with a single CAT6 "solid" cable per output at 1080p.

When the HDMI signal progresses through 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5 it is re-timed, level compensated, its phase error is corrected, and any data jitter is eliminated so the output is a regenerated brand new perfect HDMI signal as when it was coming from the source device.

The EDID learning function of the 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5 is only necessary whenever you encounter any display on the HDMI output port that cannot play audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source devices and displays may have various level of capability in playing audio and video, the general principle is that the source device will output the lowest standards in audio format and video resolutions to be commonly acceptable among all HDMI displays. In this case, a 720p stereo HDMI signal output would be probably the safest choice. Nevertheless, the user can force the matrix to learn the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display among others to make sure all displays are capable to play the HDMI signals normally.

The 8-8 HDMI Switcher Over CAT5 allows eight HDMI devices to be switched or split easily to eight HDMI compatible monitors or projectors over a single CAT6 (preferred) cable. The 8X8 HDMI Switchers RS-232 control allows the switcher to also be controlled by 3rd party control systems like Crestron and Control4 or many other computerized software/hardware control systems.

This matrix features a set of 8- EDID modes in addition to allowing any input source to receive a copy of the EDID information of any selected output. Changing the EDID settings may be necessary when connecting to or from a surround sound receiver or for passing 3D content derived from a cable or satellite set top box if the default EDID has problems.

Using one of the the internal EDID modes can also speed up the switching process with cable or satellite and many other sources.

If you use one of the internal EDID settings the source device will see the matrices EDID you chose instead of the displays EDID and overrides the displays own EDID information. If your display is not capable of accepting the video resolution or audio type selected, you may not have audio and/or video. In this case choose another more compatible EDID or use the default EDID.

Q: You have a great selection of 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switchers, do you have a comparison of them?
A:
Yes, see our UNDER $2,000 8X8 HDMI MATRIX COMPARISON to help you make a decision.

Q: Your 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5 says it supports FST, what is FST?
A:
This 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5 incorporates FST (Fast Switching Technology). FST allows faster switching when selecting different audio/video sources. In addition to fast switching, it improves overall audio/video system behavior as well as performance when more than one HDTV display is used in the system. FST allows you to connect and disconnect, and turn on/off, HDTV displays without affecting other hi-def sources routed to other HDTV displays in the same system. A transition that could typically take up to 10 seconds is now reduced to little or no delay. This is achieved through an improvement of the HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) handshaking process, which has been implemented into this matrix.

Q: How does the EDID learning function work on the 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5?
A:
The 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5s EDID learning function is only necessary whenever you encounter any display on the HDMI output port that cannot play audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source devices and displays may have various level of capability in playing audio and video, the general principle is that the source device will output the lowest standards in audio format and video resolutions to be commonly acceptable among all HDMI displays.

In this case, a 720p stereo HDMI signal output would be probably the safest choice. Nevertheless, the user can force the matrix to learn the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display among others to make sure all displays are capable to play the HDMI signals normally.

There are eight embedded default EDID modes as below:

  1. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 24bit 2D & 2ch
  2. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 24bit 2D & 7.1ch
  3. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 24bit 3D & 2ch
  4. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 24bit 3D & 7.1ch
  5. HD (1080i@60) (720p@60) - 24bit 2D & 2ch
  6. HD (1080i@60) (720p@60) - 24bit 2D & 7.1ch
  7. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 36bit 2D & 2ch
  8. Full-HD (1080p@60) - 36bit 2D & 7.1ch
Q: I've made EDID changes but don't see an affect.
A:
When you make changes to the EDID, you need to either power cycle the display or change the inputs. This forces the display to relock onto the source.

Q: Would I be able to used an HDMI connection for audio only going to my audio receiver. This way I could get True HD Audio. Will this output work how I am describing?
A:
Yes, provided you do not turn On a display device that might be connected to the Output of your audio receiver. Some older displays do not have the ability to decode anything other than 2 channel stereo and when connected to a receiver via HDMI.

Q: I have a PC with HDMI out, how do I set it up with your 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switch Over CAT5 ?
A:
When your computer boots up, it looks for an EDID (extended display identification data) from the display to tell it what monitor is connected and what resolution to output. During boot up of the computer you should have ONLY one output selected to one input at a time so that the computer gets the EDID of the display that is selected. If you have multiple outputs selected to one computer, the computer will read the EDID of the last output selected to it. If all your displays are the same, or all displays are capable of running at the same resolution then this step does not matter.

Q: Where can I find info on the remote IR function?
A:
The Users Manual is at the MANUALS Tab at the product page. The remote IR function supports the standard 38-KHz frequency and supports single beam remote controls although most buyer use this Learning RF and IR Remote Control.
