Features

WolfPack Composite Video Switchers This WolfPack™ 480i/p Composite Video Input Card is a 1-port input card designed to work with our WolfPack Matrix Switchers. The Composite Video Input Card is used with the matrix for true plug-and- play cross-point switching from any Composite Video input to any combination of outputs.

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.

This Universal Composite Video Input Card is used in HDTV Supply WolfPack family of 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 modular matrix switchers that feature one-slot card cages using 9, 18 or 36 and these one-port Composite Video Input cards.

Composite Video Input Card Feature:

  • Supports one (1) Composite Video Input
  • Supports 480i/p resolutions
  • 8-Pin DIP Switch resolution settings on the card
  • Seamless switching speed of 100ms (0.1 sec)
  • Controllable via the matrices front panel buttons, Color Touchscreen, RS232, WEB GUI & iOS/Android App
  • No latency
WolfPack™ Universal Card: The unique card is created using DVI-I (both analog & digital) technology so it can work with the following technologies with the adapter the comes with it:
  1. HDMI with embedded and de-embedded audio
  2. VGA video with embedded and de-embedded audio
  3. Component (Y-Pb-Pr) video with embedded and de-embedded audio
  4. Composite (CVBS) video with embedded and de-embedded audio
SwiftSwitch Seamless Switching: This card is used in our WolfPack™ Modular Matrix Switchers can be configured with instantaneous video switching which delivers full 480i/p video powered by our WolfPack engine implemented at each output port. This high-performance engine processes Composite Video signals by executing EDID hops and HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input and the display outputs and scaling inputs for the best output resolution while setting the output clock timing and using a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output.

The WolfPack™ Modular HDMI Matrix Router allows switching between inputs with a clean video cut (frame-to-frame switching with no glitches). The WolfPack™ Modular HDMI Matrix Routers advanced processor allows it to process live signals simultaneously which means it can seamlessly and instantly switch (~100ms) between HDMI inputs and outputs. Most non-seamless matrix switchers require a delay of several seconds before they can switch between devices but with this WolfPack family that wait time is completely eliminated

NOTE: Do not combine or use our 4K/60 cards with this 480i/p Composite Video card in the same matrix chassis.

Compatibility

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

This card used with our modular Composite Video 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.
