Features

HDTV Supply's WolfPack™ 8x16 Component Matrix Switch is a preconfigured integrated Component video Component matrix Switcher. The 18x18 chassis back plane allows Component 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. The core of the 8x16 Component Matrix Switcher consists of an 18x18 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 18 - Component input cards and 18 - Component output cards. This 8x16 Component Matrix Switch supports both video, and audio also via its 3.5mm connectors on the In & Out cards.

This component matrix switcher can be used to completely replace Knox, and other manufacturer component matrix switchers, for existing installations where you've already got component cabling ran to your TVs and cannot economically replace the existing cables. You can control the 8x16 Component Matrix Switcher via Front Buttons or optional 7" Touch Screen, WEB GUI control, or the Dual RS-232 serial port. The matrix does not have IR nor a remote control but can be controlled with its iOS and Android app.

The heart of the component matrix is the WolfPack chassis backplane which allows customization of the configuration for input & output cards to match every need of the system & application. The matrix support hot-plugs & you can change the cards while the equipment is working. 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 does not have to be sent to us for a repair.

Compatibility

HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackLite and our other Component 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 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 component 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™
  • DTVGameControl™
  • 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 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:
  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.

  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:
18x18: 4U - 482x390x178mm - 18.97x15.35x7.01 inches (L/W/H)

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.
