HDTV Supplys 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher with CAT5 Outs is a part of HDTV Supplys WOLFPACK™ family allowing 256 viewing combinations from 4 HDMI sources to 4 widescreens. Because it is a matrix switcher, it allows any input to be routed to any output; or the same input to be routed to all outputs, or any combination. The 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher has four HDMI inputs & four HDMI outputs ports plus 4-RJ45 for the CAT5 cable connection. The displays can be up to 150 feet away from the matrix using CAT6 cabling.
The WOLFPACK™ 4x4 HDMI Matrix with simultaneous CAT and HDMI outputs connects four HDMI sources to eight displays. This matrix features four HDMI outputs and each HDMI output is mirrored to provide a CAT-Cable output which runs simultaneously. Connect a single UTP Receiver to each of the CAT-Cable outputs to extend the HDMI signal up to 150 feet for multi-room connectivity. It works with Blu-Ray players, Set-Top boxes, Home Theater PCs, and game consoles that connect to an HDMI display. Any source is accessible at all times by any display by selecting it via the supplied IR Remote Control, RS-232, TCP/IP or by using the selection buttons on the front panel. This 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher with CAT5 Outs supports High Definition Audio.
The WOLFPACK™ 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher with CAT5 Outs has four HDMI inputs, 4 HDMI outputs and four RJ45 output ports available for the CAT5/6 cable connection. This also allows you to connect any input to any output, should you need to send an HDMI cable connection down to the component cable connection. This does reduce the overall picture quality, as HDMI provides the pinnacle of audio and video superiority, but it does allow you to have an easy connection, while using this kind of hook up.

Our WOLFPACK™ 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher with CAT5 Outs offers unprecedented flexibility and convenience by Extending High Definition Audio/Video Signals from any of 4 HDMI Sources to any of 4 Remote Displays over only one Cat5e/Cat6 Cable over 150 feet. Sometimes there just isn′t enough HDMI connection options available for you on your high-definition system. As the HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) provides the best connection option for your television, due to the fact it streams both HD audio and video in the same cable connection, it reduces the number of connection required to run your television appropriately. This allows you to hook up multiple HD devices to the same connection. One such device that might just be perfect for your needs is this 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher & CAT5 Outs.
NOTE: If both the CAT5/6 and the standard HDMI outputs are used, the number of total outputs would be up to 8. Each individual zone (example, VIDEO OUT 1) of the CAT5 and HDMI output would have the same picture, though. Think of it as a 4X4X2. Since the matrix switch also has 4-female HDMI outputs you can use these with the above optional stand alone HDMI extenders that have separate extended warranties if you have long distances to where your widescreens are located at.

Q: I do not have a CD player to use the mini cd of the software that came with the matrix. I downloaded the software from the website It does not appear that the device is gettig an IP address on my local network. I can statically assign my computer to a 192.168.1.x ip address and then connect using the provided software to the device on a default IP address of 192.168.1.10 but there is not a way to configure the device to use DHCP to get the network configuration.
A: It seems this client is using a router in its network, please ask him firstly assign its router DHCP to 192.168.1.1, then set its computer to any ip address (such as 192.168.1.123) differ from 192.168.1.10 - Then it should solve his problem.
Q: What is the IR frequency of this matrix?
A: The remote control has an industry standard IR frequency of 38KHz but the matrix itself supports 38KHz to 56KHz.
Q: Please explain the IR connectors.
A: On the Switch:
IR outs: Sends IR to the source devices
IR ins: Sends signal to TV
On the HDMI Extenders:
IR Out: Would be used if you were sending a signal from the matrix
IR In: The IR signal sent back to the switch
Along with the above explanation see the above VIDEOS Tab for a video explanation of how IR works via the CATx cable.
Q: How can I control the matrix from the HDMI outs, not CAT5 outs, in faraway rooms?
A: Use 3rd party RF remote controls as remote IR, via HDMI cabling, is not supported on the HDMI outs, only the CATx wiring.
Q: This product has CEC, what is CEC?
A: This product features CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) allowing your HDTV's remote to manage up to ten devices that are connected via HDMI (such as Blu-ray Disc players or home theater receivers) with no special programming needed. For example, you can use your remote to turn on your TV, your player, and your receiver at the same time, and adjust the system volume with one button. All devices must support CEC, though.
Most major TV manufacturers now support CEC, and an HDTV with HDMI 1.3 will likely have the technology. Manufacturers call it by different names; LG Electronics, for instance, calls its implementation SimpleLink, whereas Toshiba calls its version CE-Link. Interoperability isn't mandatory, so some manufacturers limit control to their own products; Sony, for one, allows only Sony-to-Sony communication.
