How to I field upgrade the 8x8 Component Matrix Switch to 16 and 24 outputs?
Buy one or two more units and then use either Y adapters or a distribution amp on the input side. Each chassis has impedance switches for the video inputs so that you can maintain perfect picture quality. For control, each chassis has DIP switches so that you can set it to be unit #1, #2 or #3.Q:
What RS232 software comes with the 8x8 Component Matrix Switch?
No software is required or included. Most terminal programs can do this, but the idea is to use a controller that has 232 capability that has been 'taught' the correct 232 commands. Something like RTI, Control4, AMX, URC, Elan, Xantech and Crestron, etc.Q:
How does one control Bass, treble and balance control for each zone?
Discrete IR or 232 commandsQ:
Tell me about the IR accessories that comes with the 8x8 Component Matrix Switch.
It does not come with any IR accessories. It supports any IR emitter
that is two wire 1/8" with the tip being positive. That's Xantech, Elan, Niles, etc. Almost every emitter in the North American market is compatible. For IR sensors
, the pin out and voltage varies a lot. So, the IR inputs are two wire as well. That allows you to connect about any RF remote base station, controller (Control4, Crestron, AMX) or connecting block via an IR output from that item to the matrix's IR input with a simple two conductor 1/8" to 1/8" cable. You can do that using the Global input and discrete zone commands or you can use the basic commands and use one of the discrete zone IR inputs.
Length is standard, which is at least a thousand feet when using something like IR to CAT5 extenders
