Features

WolfPack HDMI Switchers HDTV Supplys WolfPack™ 8x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher is a pre-configured integrated HDMI video and HDMI audio modular HDMI matrix Switcher. The HDMI chassis back plane allows HDMI technologies 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 8x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher consists of an 16x16 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports up to four - 4 port HDMI input cards and up to four 4-port HDMI output cards. The 8x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher is 1080p compliant.

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 to us for a repair.

The Modular Card Cage chassis has 4 - input slots and 4 - output slots. The HDMI input and HDMI output cards are 4 - port HDMI cards having 4 - HDMI connectors on each card. If one populates the complete chassis it configures to a 16x16 HDMI Switcher.

  1. Fast 100ms switching speed
  2. Supports image size & color adjustment in Matrix Mode, not with the Video Wall function
  3. 4-port HDMI input cards w/scaling & embedded audio via 3-pin Phoenix audio ports
  4. 4-port HDMI output cards with de-embedded audio via 3-pin Phoenix audio ports
  5. 1080p, HDMI 1.4 and HDCP 1.4 compliant
  6. Small 3U modular chassis
  7. 16 - Preset scenes that can be Saved and Recalled
  8. Closed Caption (CC) Pass-through
  9. Control via an iPad, Android, remote control, Web Browser (WEB GUI), RS232 & Front Buttons

  12. Free Lifetime Telephone, CHAT, TEXT and Email Tech Support
  13. Built-in Video wall Processor
Video Wall Processor: The internal Video Wall processor allows you to create custom video wall layouts via our easy to use WEB GUI.
  • 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.

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 manual scaling up/down. Each card has a 8-pin DIP switch to select multiple resolution settings to conform to your source devices and the destination devices.

Compatibility

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.

These 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:

  • 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 "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:
  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

Q: How do you adjust the image size and color adjustment?
A:
Unfortunately, all of our matrix switchers with a Video Wall function are NOT able to adjust the image size, brightness or color. It can only be used in the matrix mode.

Q: Is the fan noisy?
A:
It is actually very quiet as we use oil sealed bearings and it is a modular design and easy to replace if any problem occurs.

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.
  1. Mix-n-Match combinations:
  2. Non-HDCP source to a HDCP compliant TV
  3. HDCP source to a non-HDCP compliant TV
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 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:
It is 16x16: 3U - 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.
