Features

WolfPack DVI Switchers HDTV Supplys WolfPack™ 1080p 16x16 Modular DVI Matrix Switcher Chassis is an integrated DVI video and DVI audio modular DVI matrix router. The 16x16 chassis (4U) back plane allows various technologies to be converted and switched eliminating external converters and it allows any input to be routed to any output, or the same input to be routed to all outputs, or any combination with multiple technologies.

The core of the 1080p Modular DVI Matrix Switcher Chassis consist of a a 16x16 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 4 - slide-in input cards and 4 - slide-in output cards. It is 4K at 30 Hz compliant. You can control the matrix switch via its IOS or Android app, 2-button fast switch from the front buttons, a WEB GUI control or the RS-232 serial port. The matrix does not have IR nor a remote control but can be controlled with its iOS and Android App as well as above.

HDTV Supplys implementation of the HDBaseT technology and this product adds virtually zero latency to the DVI audio and video signal, less than 7 microseconds (0.000007 sec) over 220 feet of CATx cable. At 100 feet you are talking about 3 microseconds (0.000003 sec). This means for example, in a church or auditorium, the speakers lips are always in synch with the video image on all the TVs and projectors 100's of feet away.

Reasons that sets our WolfPack™ DVI Modular Matrix Switchers apart from others:

  1. 1080p DVI 1.4 4-port cards & chassis for the best picture
  2. Uses the best 1080p HDBaseT DVI to CATx extenders with POE (Power Over Ethernet)
  3. Optional Elan & 2-Way Control4 Drivers
  4. Control via an iPad, Android, Web Browser (WEB GUI), RS232 & Front Buttons
  5. 40-Preset scenes that can be Saved and Recalled
  6. 2-Year WolfPackCare Advance Replace Warranty
  7. Free Lifetime Telephone, CHAT, TEXT and Email Tech Support
  8. Other in & out cards available like VGA, DVI, Fiber, SDI, CVBS, YPbPr and Audio
  9. Optional low cost Video wall Processors
  10. Rack-mountable

WolfPack™ 1080p 8x16 DVI Matrix Switch Configuration Example:

  • 1 - 16-card in and 16 card out 1080p card cage
  • 2 - 4-port 4K DVI input cards = 8 - 1080p DVI inputs
  • 4 - 4-port 4K DVI output cards = 16 1080p DVI outputs
By having 4-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.

Compatibility

HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackLite and our other DVI 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 DVI matrix switching. The reason, we are told by the users, is the number of features we offer compared to other companies they looked at.

These modular DVI 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:

  • AMX™
  • Control4™
  • Creston™
  • RTI™
  • DTVGameControl™
  • Elan g!™
  • Media Switcher™
  • OnControls™
  • Savant™
  • SimpleControl™
  • SwitchItUp™
  • SAVI Control™
  • URC Control™
...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 x1&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 "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:
  1. Call us for a quote
  2. 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.

Q: How many Preset scenes can I Save and Recall?
A:
40.

Q: What are the HDCP options?
A:
You can choose either to open or close the HDCP on the output card. A receiver that cannot support HDCP can also display the sources with HDCP.
  1. Mix-n-Match combinations:
  2. Non-HDCP source to a HDCP compliant TV
  3. HDCP source to a non-HDCP compliant TV
Q: What is you test procedure?
A:
Our testing procedure is:
  1. Assembling: Production line self-testing (Basic Functions)
  2. Initial Testing: Includes every card, control software and front panel front buttons
  3. 24 Hours Aging: Gao Sheng Standard Aging Room
  4. Final testing: All Functions
  5. QC final Inspection: Sticker, serial number, etc
  6. Packing: Pack and ship
Q: How do the 2-power supplies work with the matrix?
A:
For the 2 power supply system on the card cage matrix, it's a redundant system. We can have two power supply system on at the same time (if one's down, it can hop to another, it guarantees the matrix won't shut down). It also can operate with just one power supply on and the other one is for back-up

Q: What are the dimensions of the chassis?
A:
16x16: 3U

Q: Do you have any tips in the unlikely event the unit fails?
A:
Turn it OFF and then disconnect the matrix from the AC power and all cables. Pull out each board from the rear and push back in. Plug all cables back in and turn it on.

Q: How is HDBaseT technology different than others?
A:
Unlike other HD distribution technologies, HDBaseT is the only technology which enables CAT5/6/7 connectivity from 70 meters to 100 meters, depending upon the specific product, for uncompressed full HD multimedia content and up to 100 watts of charging power via a single cable. HDBaseT is optimized for video applications and can connect all HDBaseT enabled home entertainment devices. Also, HDBaseT technology has the capacity to deliver double the resolution available today to future 2K and 4K formats. Other existing solutions also require a specific cable and/or a new proprietary connector while HDBaseT utilizes the existing Ethernet infrastructure.

DVI HDbaseT Extender Helpful Tips & Recommendations:

  • Keep cables away from any equipment with an electromagnetic wave, e.g., mobile phone, microwave, radio equipment, fluorescent lamp, high voltage power lines, etc.
  • CAT5/6 cables should not exceed 220 feet or (70m).
  • Please adhere to the TIA/EIA568B standards when terminating network cables in the field.
  • Shielded CAT5/6 with metal RJ-45 connectors are recommended to safeguard against random video flashes caused by electromagnetic interference (EMI).
