HDTVSupply WolfPack™ 18x18 Seamless Modular Component Matrix Switcher Chassis
is an integrated Component video and Component audio modular Component chassis. The chassis back plane allows various technologies, like Component, to be converted and switched eliminating external converters. A Component Matrix Switcher allows any input to be routed to any output, or the same input to be routed to all outputs, or any combination using Component input and Component output cards or other cards of different or mixed technologies. A built-in LCD screen lets view your selections directly on the front of the Component matrix switcher.
The core of the 18x18 Component Seamless Modular Component Matrix Switcher Chassis consists of its highly configurable backplane that supports 18 seamless Component input cards & 18 seamless Component output cards. You can control the Component Matrix Switcher via its iOS or Android app, a few simple button taps from the front panel buttons, a WEB GUI Browser control or the RS-232 serial port.

WolfPack™ 1080p 8x16 Seamless Component Matrix Switcher Configuration Example:
- 1 - 18-card in and 18-card out card cage
- 8 - 1-port Component seamless input cards = 8 Component inputs
- 16 - 1-port Component seamless output cards = 16 Component outputs
- 10 additional input slots for future card expansion to 18- Component inputs
- 2 additional output slots for future card expansion to 18- Component outputs
The heart of the Seamless 18x18 Modular Matrix Router chassis allows customization of the number of Component input and output cards to match every need of your system design and application. The matrix support hot-plugs and you can change the cards while the equipment is still working.
Slide In Component Cards:
By having 1-port slide-in seamless Component 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, use our 2 - Year Advance Replace Warranty or order another from us. The complete matrix doesn't have to be sent to us for a repair. The WolfPack Modular Component Matrix Routers manage many type of Component signals. These Modular Component Matrix Switcher support long Component cables, maintains power reliability in the event of failure and offer the best flexible solutions in a complex Component system deployment.
No black or blue screens appear while switching between the sources. Provides users a more enjoyable and greater video and audio switching experience
|Seamless Switching: This WolfPack™ Component Matrix Switcher allows seamless switching between inputs with a clean video cut (frame-to-frame switching with no glitches). The WolfPack™ Seamless Component Matrix Switcher advanced processor allows it to process up to 18-live signals simultaneously, that means it can seamlessly and instantly switch (~100ms) between 18- Component inputs and 18- Component outputs. Most non-seamless matrix switcher require a delay of several seconds before they can switch between devices but with this WolfPack seamless Component family that wait time is completely eliminated.
Users can connect to their the local network or a WIFI router via our LAN port. You can even download the iOS APP from the Apple store or from our website directly

HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackLite and our other Component Modular Matrix Switcher 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 Component 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 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:
- Elan g!™
- Media Switcher™
- 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 "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.
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.
