It is Browser Based WEB GUI controlled by a PC or MAC hardwired to its LAN port. The above picture shows an example of a mixture of HDMI transmitters and HDMI receivers (totaling 16) & the Gigabit Ethernet matrix switch with internal firmware to support either an network HDMI splitter, network HDMI switcher or a network HDMI matrix switch.
It uses CAT5e/6 cables and a Gigabit Ethernet LAN switch with MJPEG techniques and an industry standard IP protocol to deliver 1080p video from sources that are 300 feet away from the Ethernet switch and another 300 feet away to the TVs. It also allows the system to grow in the field as its design allows you the flexibility of adding more video sources or more displays to the system based upon the number of unused Ethernet ports available. These Network HDMI Matrix Switchers come with a 24-port rack mount Ethernet switch with one port used for the WIFI/PC control leaving a 23-ports to grow your system. You cannot use more the 23-in and out ports total. Example: an 8x16 is not supported but an 8x15 is.

Here is a video on Web Interface Setup.
Q: I don't see a picture, what do I do?
A: Did you change the MAC addresses of the transmitters and receivers? Also in the switch do you have the ports setup to inputs and outputs?
