The 8 component video input matrix switch w/16 CAT-5 outputs feeds 1080p high definition video signals to up to 16 widescreens. 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 CAT5 receivers are unbundled so pick qty you need from the above choices. You cannot use another manufacturers CAT5 receiver with this unit as the chip sets must match.

This 8x16 Component Video Matrix Switcher w/CAT5 outs is a special order only and if you need it now see our 16x16 Component Matrix Switch Over CAT5 for less than $3,500 with an optional iPad Ap.

Danube Smart WallPlate Receiver Features

  • Automatically detects the cable length and use the patented self adjusting equalizer to compensate for cable losses
  • Single gang Decora style module
  • No local power needed - power comes from the 8x8 Component Video to CAT-5 Matrix switcher
  • Auto-adjusting equalizer for a quick and reliable installation
  • Paintable wall plate - Labels are applied after finish
  • You cannot use another manufacturers receiver other than the above receivers.
The Danube 8X16V is an 8 input matrix switch with 16 outputs, designed for switching and distribution of up to 1080p high definition video. All 8 inputs are RCA connectors for component video, while all outputs are over Cat 5e twisted pair cables capable of sending full HD video up to 1,000 feet away. This allows the centralization of all video source equipment, and distribution throughout the home. The 8x16 Component Video Matrix Switcher with CAT5 outputs is perfect for larger homes and small to medium sports bars.

The wall mount receiver unit is an in wall single gang Decora insert, which is paintable, and is completely powered by the main Danube unit. You can use either 568A or 568B CAT-5 cables, as long as the are the same at both ends. The receivers are not included as we don't know the quantity you require. See the above OPTIONS to pick the quantity you need.

NOTE: You cannot use another manufacturers CAT5 receiver with this unit as the chip sets must match.

The 8x16 Component Video Matrix Switcher with CAT5 outputs will transmit a 1080i/p signal over CAT-5 cables up to 1,000 feet away. The single gang decora in wall receiver will automatically detect the cable length and use the patented self adjusting equalizer to compensate for cable losses.

Output Cabling: In general, we have been referring to the cables as Cat5. The minimum requirement for successful operation of the Danube system is Cat5, but Cat5e is preferred. Cat6 may be used as long as it is construct with 24 AWG wires. Most Cat6 is 24 AWG, but a 22 AWG variety does exist, and should not be used for this system.

Terminating the ends of the Cat5 cable can be done with either TIA/EIA-568-B or A standard, so long as both ends are terminated using the same standard. Below is the color codes for 568-B. Although in some case of Ethernet where polarity of the pairs can be swapped, with the Danube system each pair must be in the correct order and polarity. A good practice is to use a cable tester on each cable after termination to verify pin order before using the cable.

Each wall receiver features a fully automatic equalization circuit, for which a US patent has been applied for. CAT-5 type cables are fairly lossy at high frequencies as well as long lengths. The automatic equalizer will detect the length of the cable, and apply the correct amount of equalization to restore the picture quality to a level indistinguishable from the original.

One issue is that other component to CAT-5 systems is that they require a local power source for each receiver, which is frequently an unsightly ‘wall-wart’. With the Danube all the power for the receiver is delivered through the CAT-5 cable. Simply plug the receiver into the CAT-5 cables, and screw it into the wall.
