This WolfPack™ 4K/30 HDBaseT Input Card is a 4K 4:2:0 compliant, 1-port input card designed to work with our WolfPack Matrix Switchers. The 4K HDBaseT Input Card provides UHD resolutions including 4K/30, 3D and up to 48-bit Deep Color at 1080p/60. The 4K HDBaseT Input Card is used with the matrix for true plug-and- play cross-point switching from any HDMI input to any combination of HDMI outputs. It allows one HDMI source to be distributed via a CAT5e/6/7 cable up to 330 feet at 1080p and 175 feet at 4K/30. The female HDMI port on this input card is used to set EDID handshaking but it can be also used as a loopout for the HDBaseT signal.
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 4K HDBaseT Input Card is used in our HDTV Supply WolfPack™ line of 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 modular matrix switchers that feature one-slot card cages using 9, 18 or 36 of these one-port HDBaseT Input Cards depending upon your system needs.
HDTV Supplys implementation of the HDBaseT technology and this product adds virtually zero latency to the HDMI audio and video signal, less than 7 microseconds (0.000007 sec) over 330 feet of CAT6 cable. At 100 feet you are talking about 3 microseconds (0.000003 sec). This means for example, in a factory, 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.
Aspect Ratio Control: This card comes with a remote control that can change the aspect ratio of the incoming signal to fit other monitors and TVs that are not 16x9. An IR window is located on the card for the remote control. It also can change the brightness, sharpness and other settings.

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 with 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 "Failed" 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.
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: Do the 4K/30 pass-through cards support 2K/60?
A: We tested the 2048x1080@60Hz and 2560x1440@60hz and both resolution can be supported by the 4K30 cards.
Q: Does the matrix switch RS232 port communicate with HDBaseT cards with RS232?
A: No. The COM ports on the matrix switcher and the RS232 ports on the HDBaseT cards to the receivers do not communicate inside our matrix switcher. From the RS232 port on the HDBaseT card to the HDBaseT Transmitter/Receiver, it is more like the RS232 extension only so you will need to use the RS232 cable connected on both ends.
The RS-232 port on the matrix which is used to control it as well is to set up other functions.
Q: Does the HDBaseT input card also have HDMI output as this picture shows?
A: The HDMI port on this input card is actually for the EDID handshaking but it can be a loop out for the HDBaseT.
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: 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.
Non-HDCP source to a HDCP compliant TV
HDCP source to a non-HDCP compliant TV
Q: What is you test procedure?
A: Our testing procedure is:
Assembling: Production line self-testing (Basic Functions)
Initial Testing: Includes every card, control software and front panel front buttons
24 Hours Aging: Gao Sheng Standard Aging Room
Final testing: All Functions
QC final Inspection: Sticker, serial number, etc
Packing: Pack and ship
