HDTV Supplys WolfPack™ Modular 4K/60 9x9 HDMI Matrix Switchers are integrated HDMI video and HDMI audio modular HDMI matrix routers. The chassis 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 WolfPack Modular HDMI Matrix Routers manage many type of HDMI signals including standalone optional 4K/60 4:4:4 at 18GBPS HDBaseT CAT6 cabling.
The core of the 4K/60 9x9 HDMI Matrix Switcher consist of a 9x9 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports up to 9 input cards and up to 9 output cards. It is also 4K at 60 Hz compliant. You can control the switch via its IOS or Android app, 2-button fast switch from the front buttons, a WEB GUI control or the RS-232 serial port. The matrix does not have IR nor a remote control but can be controlled with its iOS and Android App as well as above. It also has optional RTI, URC, Elan & 2-Way Control4 Drivers.
The heart of the Modular HDMI Matrix Routers are the WolfPack chassis backplane which allows customization of the configuration for input and output cards to match every need of the system and application. The matrix support hot-plugs and you can change the cards while the equipment are still 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 doesn't have to be sent to us for a repair.

EDID Explained: The Modular HDMI Matrix Routers EDID provides for optimal source-to-screen performance. EDID will optimize the video card output for the capabilities of the end display. The EDID ghost unit enables the copying, emulating, cloning, and "learning" of EDID data from a display. Our EDID Emulator and repeater comes with predefined presets, user programmable banks, Sink EDID sniffing bank and more. Our EDID Emulator ensures proper operation, for the best performing HDMI audio and video signal between any source and display Resolves loss of video, intermittent (flashing) video, snow, or color-space (purple or red) issues.

100ms Seamless HDMI Switching: These WolfPack™ 4K/60 HDMI Matrix Switcher w/Apps, WEB GUI & Video Wall Processor delivers 100ms instantaneous video switching with full 4K/60 video at each port. This high-performance engine processes HDMI signals by executing EDID hops and HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input, the display outputs and scales the inputs for the best output resolution. It sets the output clock timing and uses a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output.
Separate Embedded Audio In and De-embedded Audio Out: These 4K/60 Matrix Switchers w/Apps, WEB GUI & Video Wall Processor allows you to display video with separate audio coming from another audio source as it supports embedding the audio on the HDMI input cards 3.5mm audio connector and then de-embedding the audio on the HDMI 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 HDMI card has a 8-pin DIP switch to select multiple resolution settings to conform to your HDMI source devices and the HDMI destination devices.
4K/60 and HDBaseT: These matrices support 4K at 60 Hz at a YUV 4:4:4 color space when used with HDMI input and output cards. Also this matrix has optional standalone 4K/60 transmission over 4K/60 HDBaseT cards accompanied with HDBaseT transmitters and HDBaseT receivers.
Supports EDID Management: Ensure that even the most difficult display can receive audio and video with eight programmable memory presets loadable to any source connected to the matrix.

Why not buy one of these Modular HDMI Matrix Routers today?
When one is designing an HDMI Matrix Switch the most important initial specification is the number of inputs and outputs you will need in your facility. The next, and often forgotten, is how the user wants to control those inputs and outputs. HDTV Supply has your back when you're buying one of our WolfPack Family of Modular Matrix Switchers as we have dozens of way to control the inputs and outputs and are shown at Controlling WolfPack Modular Matrix Systems, as well as below:
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:
...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 an "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:
Call us for a quote
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.
Our engineer in China made this video to show our 4K 60Hz Modular Matrix Switcher with a 4K 60Hz HDMI 2.0 input and an HDBaseT output to the POC HDBaseT receiver. It shows our seamless (100ms) switching without any black or blue screen interruption during the HDMI switching. It also shows our 3.5mm audio embedded and de-embedded function, the iPad control and the quick 2-key switching.
Below is a video of the WolfPack 9x9 card cage model showing the fast switching speed and its features. The larger card cage models will operate exactly the same but will allow more input and output cards.
Q: How do I customize the output card resolution?
A: Below is the DIP switch settings for the 4K60 HDMI2.0 output cards.
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.
Non-HDCP source to a HDCP compliant TV
HDCP source to a non-HDCP compliant TV
Q: What is you test procedure?
A: Our testing procedure is:
Assembling: Production line self-testing (Basic Functions)
Initial Testing: Includes every card, control software and front panel front buttons
24 Hours Aging: Gao Sheng Standard Aging Room
Final testing: All Functions
QC final Inspection: Sticker, serial number, etc
Packing: Pack and ship
Q: What are the dimensions of the chassis?
A: 9x9: 2U - 482x390x88mm - 18.97x15.35x3.46 inches
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.
Q: How is HDBaseT technology different than others?
A: Unlike other HD distribution technologies, HDBaseT is the only technology which enables CAT5/6/7 connectivity from 70 meters to 100 meters, depending upon the specific product, for uncompressed full HD multimedia content and up to 100 watts of charging power via a single cable. HDBaseT is optimized for video applications and can connect all HDBaseT enabled home entertainment devices. Also, HDBaseT technology has the capacity to deliver double the resolution available today to future 2K and 4K formats. Other existing solutions also require a specific cable and/or a new proprietary connector while HDBaseT utilizes the existing Ethernet infrastructure. These WolfPack HDBaseT matrix systems have with (POC) Power Over Ethernet so you don't need AC adapters.
