HDTVSupply WolfPack™ Build your own Seamless Modular Component Matrix Switcher Chassis
using 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. An optional 7-inch Color Touch Screen can also be used for status & control.
The core of the these Component Seamless Modular Component Matrix Switcher Chassis consists of its highly configurable backplane that supports up to 36-seamless Component input cards & up to 36-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 Dual RS-232 serial and LAN ports. Our Modular Component Matrix Switchers also can support high-resolution Component sources routed to Component displays, monitors, projectors, etc.

The heart of theese Seamless 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 up to 36-Component inputs and up to 36-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
|Free Android and iOS App: The IOS App for this WolfPack card cage matrix is in the Apple Application Store and when you SEARCH the key words "MCS" or "Matrix Control System" you can download and install it to your iPad or iPhone. Also from your iPad or iPhone click the following link...MCS-matrix control system to install it directly. For the Android App click the following link and download it. Go to Android App for control of this Component matrix switch.
EDID HANDSHAKE MANAGEMENT: The Modular Component Matrix Routers EDID provides for optimal source-to-screen switching. EDID will optimize the video card output for the capabilities of the end display. The EDID ghost unit enables the copying, emulating, cloning, and "learning" of EDID data from a display. Our EDID Emulator and repeater comes with predefined presets, user programmable banks, Sink EDID sniffing bank and more. Our EDID Emulator ensures the Component audio and video signal between any source and display and will resolve any loss of video, intermittent (flashing) video, snow or color-space (purple or red) issues.
Why not configure a WolfPack Seamless Modular Component Matrix Switcher based upon your needs today?
This Modular WolfPack Modular Matrix System has dual RS232 ports on the back of the chassis that can be used (1) as a back-up control if one malfunctions and (2) you can use the 2nd-RS232 port to control the Matrix Switcher at the same time as the first. The same for the 2-LAN ports.
Hardware Scaling via DIP Switches on both in and out cards: The 8-pin DIP switch on the cards are for the up/down manual scaling of resolutions. 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.
Separate Embedded Audio In and De-embedded Audio Out: The matrix allows you to display video with separate audio coming from another audio source as it supports embedding the audio on the input cards 3.5mm audio connector and then de-embedding the audio on the output cards 3.5mm audio.
100ms Seamless HDMI Switching: This WolfPack™ Seamless 4x10 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/10-HDBaseT Receivers delivers 100ms instantaneous video switching with full 1080p/60 video at each port. This high-performance engine processes HDMI signals by executing EDID hops & HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input, the display outputs & scales the inputs for the best output resolution. It sets the output clock timing & uses a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output. The cards also have Embedded audio inputs & De-embedded Audio Outputs.

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 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:
- 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.
