Features

HDTV Supplys WolfPackGold 1080p 4x8 SDI Matrix Switch with a Video Wall Function is an integrated SDI video and SDI audio modular SDI matrix switcher. The small 6U 16x16 chassis (6U) 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 Modular SDI Matrix Switcher Chassis consist of a a 16x16 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 4 - 4-port SDI slide-in input cards and 4 - 4-port SDI slide-in output cards. You can control the matrix switch via its IOS or Android app, 2-button fast switch from the front buttons, a WEB GUI control, IR remote control or the RS-232 serial port.

Internal Video Wall Processor: Not only is this product an SDI matrix switch it is designed to support multiple video wall configurations. Your tablet is used to create the video walls. It supports Drag-N-Drop Video Wall Processing & setups like:

Example 1: Create a 2x2 Video Wall using 4-TVs with either one large picture or 4-individual pictures at one, or multiple locations.

Example 2: Create a 3x3 Video Wall using 9-TVs with either one large picture or 9-individual pictures at one, or multiple places.

Example 3: Create a 4x4 Video Wall using 16-TVs with either one large picture or 16-individual pictures at one.

Example 4: Create a 5x5 Video Wall using 25-TVs with either one large picture or 25-individual pictures at one.

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.

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 SDI card has a 8-pin DIP switch to select multiple resolution settings to conform to your SDI source devices and the SDI destination devices.

WolfPackGold 4x8 SDI Matrix Switch with a Video Wall Function Configuration:

  • 1 - 16-card in and 16 card out card cage
  • 1 - 4-port SDI input cards = 4 - SDI inputs
  • 2 - 4-port SDI output cards = 8 - SDI 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 in for repair.

Compatibility

HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackGold and our other SDI 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 SDI 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 SDI 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™
  • 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 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 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/A

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

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

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:
36x36: Small 6U Size w/Rack Mounts

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.
