This WolfPack™ Fiber Input Card is a 1080p compliant, 1-port input card designed to work with our WolfPack Matrix Switchers. The Fiber Input Card is used with the matrix for true plug-and- play cross-point switching from any Fiber input to any combination of outputs. The Fiber Card uses a 1-core single-mode fiber cable with an LC connector.
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 Fiber Input Card is used in the HDTV Supply line of 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 modular matrix switchers that feature one-slot card cages using 9, 18 or 36 of these one-port Fiber Input cards depending upon your system needs. The Fiber Cards are used with the matrix for true plug-and- play cross-point switching from any Fiber input to any combination of Fiber outputs. Using Single Mode fiber with a one core LC connector it can go up to 6.2 miles (10km) at 1080p60.

SwiftSwitch™ SEAMLESS SWITCHING: This card is used in our WolfPack™ Modular Matrix Switchers can be configured with instantaneous video switching which delivers full 1080p/60 video powered by our WolfPack engine implemented at each output port. This high-performance engine processes Fiber 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 1080p Fiber card in the same matrix chassis. These Fiber cards are designed to work only on 1080p based systems delivering pure 1080p resolutions and cannot be combined with any 4K/60 card HDMI Matrix system.
HDTV Supply has successfully installed our WolfPack, WolfPackLite and our other Fiber 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 Fiber 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 Fiber 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:
...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:
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.
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: 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.
