The Zektor CVS4 component video switcher was specifically designed for user of high definition component video system user. It also has the VideoRequest multiple DVD system and includes several new features and improved specifications for this application.

The Zektor CVS4 can also be used in reverse as a one input, four output switcher if desired. Digital audio cannot be switched, though.

This 1080p component video switcher can be used with HDTV's that have a component video input and:

  1. High definition TiVo's with component video outputs
  2. High definition Dish Network and DirecTV receivers with component video outputs
  3. High definition cable receivers with component video outputs
  4. WII, Sony PS3, HD DVD and Blu-ray DVD players with component video outputs
  5. Any DVD player with component video outputs
  6. VideoRequest products
  7. and other similar devices.
New features include a greatly extended frequency response, the addition of a composite video channel which allows switching the VideoRequest composite video along with it's component video channels, and full separation of the video ground paths from the digital audio ground paths to reduce the possibility of ground loops and digital noise interference on the video signals.

The Zektor CVS4 is a 4 input, 1 output component video switch with inputs for Pr / Pb / Y video and L & R analog audio channels, and an extra channel for composite video. Both Toslink and SPDIF digital audio channels are supported as well. It replaces their very popular Zektor HDS4.

The Zektor CVS4 component video switch also makes an excellent 5.1 multichannel audio switch. For noise free operation and to prevent ground loops, analog grounds are fully isolated from the digital grounds.

Zektor CVS4 component video switch Features:

  • Four Inputs and One Component Video Output
  • It supports all HDTV modes like 480i through 1080p, including 720p and 1080i
  • Each input consists of six analog channels (Pr/Pb/Y/Left/Right/CV) and one channel of digital audio
  • Analog audio channels are routed using the same high-bandwidth relay switches as the video channels, and can be used to route H & V components (with proper adapter cables) for an RGB-HV switch, supports all RGB-HV PC modes
  • Free Zektor remote control
  • Built in RS232
  • VideoRequest Compatible
  • Rear mounted IR jack
VideoRequest Compatible: The Zektor CVS4 and the VideoReQuest takes control of up to four SONY DVD changers and gives you fast and easy access to all your favorite movies and allows you to search in many different ways. The Zektor CVS4 is used as the 4 DVI switcher with the VideoQuest system.

Did you forget the movie title but remember the actor or director? Maybe you want to search through just your favorite comedies? Simply browse your collection at your leisure and choose a suitable movie for any occasion. Simple on-screen navigation with VideoReQuest's friendly and intuitive controls makes movie selection really easy - and great fun. When used as with the VideoRequest, the CVS4 will work straight out of the box as a drop in replacement for a Zektor HDS4.2.

High Quality Gold Clad, Silver-Palladium Relays: All analog signals are switched using high quality relays with gold clad, silver-palladium (AgPd) contacts. The combination of gold clad on silver-palladium while expensive, holds the highest rating for long life, when switching low level signals such as those found in analog audio and video paths. Each analog channel of the Zektor CVS4 component video switch is routed using a separate relay, thus reducing the possibility of cross talk between channels, when compared to the less expensive design of using multi-contact relays where multiple signals are routed through a single relay.

Passive Switching of Analog Signals: The Zektor CVS4 component video switch passively switches its analog signals using high quality relays designed specifically for switching low level signals such as those used in the audio and component video paths. When compared to an active analog switch (using analog switching ICs), relays are usually a more expensive solution for routing signals. However relays offer a switching quality like that of physically swapping cables, without the added noise and distortion that is inherent in active switches. This also allows the CVS4 to be used in reverse. The output can be used as an input and switched to each of four outputs.

5.1 Multichannel Audio Switch: Since there are six available analog channels, the Zektor CVS4 component video switch can easily be used as a four to one 5.1 multichannel audio switch. The fully passive design, and full isolation of the digital and analog grounds makes the Zektor CVS4 ideal for switching analog audio signals. The devices replaces the Zektor MAS3.

The relay based, passive, 5.1 inputs and outputs are labled:
  • PbR
  • PbB
  • Y/G
  • C/V
  • L/H
  • R/V
Fully isolated analog grounds: The Zektor CVS4 component video switch features full isolation of its analog and digital grounds to eliminate digital noise from being superimposed on its analog signals, and to help eliminated ground loop problems.

Gold Plated Connections: Gold plated RCA connectors are used throughout the Zektor CVS4 component video switch design to reduce the possibility of contact generated noise caused by corrosion.

High Quality Gold Clad, Silver-Palladium Relays: All analog signals are switched using high quality relays with gold clad, silver-palladium (AgPd) contacts. The combination of gold clad on silver-palladium while expensive, holds the highest rating for long life, when switching low level signals such as those found in analog audio and video paths. Each analog channel of the Zektor CVS4 component video switch is routed using a separate relay, thus reducing the possibility of cross talk between channels, when compared to the less expensive design of using multi-contact relays where multiple signals are routed through a single relay.

Toslink and SPDIF Digital Audio: Both Toslink (Optical) and SPDIF (Coax) can be routed through the Zektor CVS4 component video switch. Either input will be accepted and both Toslink and SPDIF are available as outputs simultaneously. All conversions between formats are done as needed.

Features of the Zektor CVS4 component video switch Exclusive IIR Learning: The Zektor CVS4 component video switch features Zektor's exclusive IIR (Intelligent Infra-Red) learning. Zektor's IIR learning allows the CVS4 to work with virtually any remote control! Control the CVS4 with an obsolete TV remote. The Zektor CVS4 also works great with any universal remote control.

Front Panel Control of Switching: New molder front panel buttons are available to directly select each input on the Zektor CVS4 component video switch. You are not forced to sequence through all inputs when switching from input two back to input one!

Zektor CVS4 component video switch Full Featured Remote Control Interface: A full featured IR command set is available using any remote control, commands are: Power Toggle, Direct Channel Selection of each input, and for better integration with universal remotes with macro capabilities, the discrete commands Power On, and Power Off are also available. This CVS4 comes with a free Zektor remote control.

Auto Dimming Display: The LED indicator lights can be set to Bright, Dim, Auto Dim, or Off. The Auto Dim mode will fade the LEDs from the Bright setting to the Dim setting about 4 seconds after a channel is selected.

Adjustable Front Panel LED intensities: The intensity levels of the front panel LEDs are fully adjustable, allowing the Zektor CVS4 component video switch to be used in a wide range of lighting conditions. The front panel can even be made to gently dim its front panels lights to 'off' when the front panel is inactive.

Zektor CVS4 component video switch Rack Mountable Metal Enclosure (1RU): Enclosed in a heavy gauge, steel chassis and aluminum front panel and has fully adjustable front panel LED intensities, the CVS4 easily integrates into your existing home theater environment.

Optional International Power Supply: Available with an international power supply for 90-264VAC, 47-63Hz operation. The international supply comes with adapters for UK, EURO, AUS and USA use. The international supply is a unique unit that comes with four different blade sets for the USA, UK, Australia and Europe. These blade inserts actually assemble into the base unit and allows the power suply to be used in any of these countries. These inserts are not a low cost adapter but actually designed for the power supply and are excellent in quality.
