This 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switcher is a true 8-in and 8-out HDMI matrix switch sending ins to outs in any combination. This 8x8 HDMI matrix gives you over 17,000,000 input and output combinations. The matrix has 8 - external digital spdif (coax) audio inputs and 8 - external digital spdif (coax) audio outputs for each channel for use with DVI products like a PC, etc. that you need audio with. Control is via the front panel push buttons, the included wireless remote control, RS-232 or the built-in LAN. Included is a GUI software for remote control from any Windows based computer. You can even access the device thru the internet using standard browsers like Internet Explorer.

This switcher design was inspired by our installers due to EDID problems when connecting HDMI thru an audio receiver and then to a TV or projector i.e. ( Source > Matrix Switch > Audio Receiver > Display ). When customers are building there racks, the audio amplifiers are generally located in the same rack near the matrix switcher so it is easy to run an RCA coax digital audio cable from the matrix switcher to the amplifier and not have the sometimes EDID problems that affect audio.

What sets the 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switcher apart for others:

  1. 8 - female HDMI inputs and outputs
  2. 8 - external digital spdif audio inputs associated with the HDMI input zones
  3. 8 - external digital spdif audio outputs associated with the HDMI output zones
  4. Discrete remote control with 25 discrete buttons including a discrete Off and On keys
  5. LAN control with software
  6. User Adjustable EDID
  7. HDCP Compliant at all output channels
  8. Supports up to 1920x1200 resolutions
  9. Supports 1080p TV's at 24/30/60/100/120/200 Hz and above as well as Blu-rays at 24 FPS
  10. HDMI 1.4 and HDCP 1.2
  11. 2D and 3D pass-through
  12. Optional companion HDMI to CAT6 baluns to 300 feet
  13. and a low, low price of only $2,000
You can take advantage of the SPDIF (coaxial digital) audio output on any output as this feature allows audio to connect directly to an audio receiver. The S/PDIF can carry two channels of uncompressed lossless PCM audio or compressed 5.1/7.1 surround sound such as Dolby Digital Plus or DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. But, it does not have the capacity to carry the uncompressed data in the lossless formats of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio as HDMI does and which is sent by the HDMI audio signal.

This 8-8 HDMI Matrix Switcher switches quickly with no flashing as its design to avoid the flashing, as seen by other HDMI matrix switchers, it presents EDID which represents all the connected displays. This eliminates the source trying to adjust the resolution dynamically to fit the TVs which limits the flexibility but increases usability.

Q: Will the device put out audio on the coax digital if there is no TV connected to the HDMI port?

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

Q: How does the DVI audio work?
When sending a DVI signal via HDMI input, it will mix the audio input from audio inputs. When sending HDMI signal via the HDMI input, the audio inputs will close automatically.

Q: Are there 2 independent coax audio matrix and an HDMI matrix inside the unit.
No, the coax ins and outs are associated with the in and out HDMI zones and cannot be independently switched.

Q: Can I use unpowered HDMI over CAT5/6 extenders with this matrix?
We don't recommend them with our matrices, or anyone else's, 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. The same applies to HDMI boosted cables as the chip set in them consume power from the matrix. We suggest the above optional HDMI extenders over CAT6 with power supplies on both sides.

Q: I've made EDID changes but don't see an affect.
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?
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?
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.

Your question:

To ensure 3D or 4K content routing through the Matrix, High Speed HDMI cables must be used and any connected non-3D or non-4K compatible display must not have an "active" HDMI output (i.e. powered off or in standby mode). The 4K or 3D source player must not be able to "see" a 2D or non-4K only display connected to the Matrix.
