This WolfPack™ 1080p Seamless HDMI Input Card is a 1080p 4:4:4 compliant, 1-port input card designed to work with our WolfPack Matrix Switchers. The 1080p HDMI Input Card is used with the matrix for true plug-and-play cross-point switching from any HDMI input to any combination of outputs. The card has a 3.5mm connector for an embedded stereo audio input & when used with its companion 1080p HDMI Output Card with a similar 3.5mm output connector can de-embed the stereo audio from that card. This L/R audio embedder will allow the use of outboard audio amplifiers when used with the output card.
By having 1-port slide in cards the matrix is very reliable as in the unlikely even there is a loss of signal you just replace the card with a spare you have purchased or order another from us. The complete matrix doesn't have to be sent to us for a repair.
This 1080p HDMI Input Card is used in our HDTV Supply line of 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 modular matrix switchers that feature one-slot card cages using 9, 18 or 36 of these one-port HDMI Input cards depending upon your system needs. It supports 10.2 Gbps of data throughput and a 600 MHz TMDS Clock frequency which is the highest specified under the HDMI 1.4 standard.

100ms Seamless HDMI Switching: This WolfPack™ 1080p HDMI Input Card delivers 100ms instantaneous video switching with full 1080p/60 video at each port. This high-performance engine processes HDMI signals by executing EDID hops and HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input, the display outputs and scales the inputs for the best output resolution. It sets the output clock timing and uses a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output.
Separate Embedded Audio In and De-embedded Audio Out: The 1080p HDMI Input Card allows you to display video with separate audio coming from another audio source as it supports embedding the audio on the HDMI input cards 3.5mm audio connector and then de-embedding the audio on the HDMI output cards 3.5mm audio.
Hardware Scaling via DIP Switches on both in and out cards: The 8-pin DIP switch on the cards are for the manual scaling up/down. Each HDMI card has a 8-pin DIP switch to select multiple resolution settings to conform to your HDMI source devices and the HDMI destination devices.

When one is designing an HDMI Matrix Switch the most important initial specification is the number of inputs and outputs you will need in your facility. The next, and often forgotten, is how the user wants to control those inputs and outputs. HDTV Supply has your back when you're buying one of our WolfPack Family of Modular Matrix Switchers as we have dozens of way to control the inputs and outputs and are shown at Controlling WolfPack Modular Matrix Systems, as well as below:
HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackLite and our other HDMI Matrix Switchers in Sports Bars, Restaurants, Bowling Alleys, Fitness Centers, Malls, Places of Worship, Data Centers, Gaming Rooms, Nail Salons, County Clubs, Casinos, Factories, Conference Rooms, Schools, Home Theaters or many other installations requiring HDMI matrix switching. The reason, we are told by the users, is the number of features we offer compared to other companies they looked at.
This card used in our modular HDMI matrix switchers can usually be integrated with many third party control systems using the RS232 port on the back of the matrix.
For experienced AV hardware and software professionals who want to write their own drivers for 3rd party control systems from:
...and we have created a simple and very easy to use RS232 script to write your own drivers.
EXAMPLE: If you want to switch input 8 to output 1, 8, 16, the RS232 command would be 8x1&8&16. and notice the command has a period (.) at the end of the string. The matrix even replies "OK" when the right command is received and shows an "ERR" when receiving a wrong command. Here is the RS232 User Manual if you want to write your own drivers.
How to use the info:
END USER: If you are an end user and want to have a whole-house control system from any of the above 3rd party control houses but your budget can't support the price you were quoted, do the following:
Call us for a quote
Once you get our quote call a 3rd party control reseller or installer in your area and tell them "Here is the hardware I want to use, please give me a quote on writing the software and installing all of the hardware at my location." You usually can save $1,000s on larger systems.
CAVEAT: We are not certified by any of the above 3rd party control systems companies nor have the necessary hardware to verify, troubleshoot and support the 3rd party writing of the code. We do warranty, though, that the RS232 script in the above RS232 Users Manual has and will work to control the matrix directly.
This video shows you the operation of HDTV Supply's WolfPack HDMI Matrix System with a built-in Video Wall Processor. The demo shows a 9x9 modular chassis with HDMI and HDBaseT cards but applies for our larger 18x18 and 36x36 modular chassis. The HDBaseT HDMI over CATx extender outputs shown are an option and the demo would be the same with female HDMI outputs.
See below our Modular Matrix Switcher with seamless switching that shows switching in 340ms without any black or blue screens during switching. All of our Modular Matrix Switchers support the Seamless Fast Switching if they have our 1080p or 4K60 cards.
Below is a video of the WolfPack 9x9 card cage model showing the fast switching speed and its features. The larger card cage models will operate exactly the same but will allow more input and output cards.
Q: How do I customize the output card resolution?
A: See the DIP switch settings here for the 1080p HDMI output cards.
Q: How many Preset scenes can I Save and Recall?
Q: What are the HDCP options?

Non-HDCP source to a HDCP compliant TV
HDCP source to a non-HDCP compliant TV
Q: Do you have any tips in the unlikely event the card fails?
A: Turn it OFF & then disconnect the matrix from the AC power & all cables. Pull out each board from the rear & push back in. Plug all cables back in & turn it on.
