This WolfPack™ SDI Output Card is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI compliant, 1-port output card with an SDI loopout designed to work with our WolfPack Matrix Switchers. The SDI Output Card provides resolutions at 3G/HD/SD-SDI. The SDI Output Card is used with the matrix for true plug-and- play cross-point switching from any SDI input to any combination of SDI or other outputs. The SDI output board supports separate analog stereo audio signals that can be routed independently.
This SDI Output Card is used in HDTV Supplys line of 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 modular matrix switchers that feature one-slot card cages using either 9, 18 or 36 of this SDI Output card, depending upon your system needs. The SDI output card includes an internal DIP switch for resolution adjustment for times when the auto-adoption cannot detect an unusual display video resolution. 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.
Supports 2 - SDI outputs with the same video. Use one as a loopout for a local monitor.
3.5mm audio de-embeds
DIP switch for resolution adjustment
Protocol: SMPTE and ITU
Color Space: RGB444, YUV444 and YUV422
Seamless switching speed of 100ms (0.1 sec)
Controllable via the matrices front panel buttons, RS232, WEB GUI and iOS/Android App
Plug & play
SwiftSwitch SEAMLESS SWITCHING: This card is used in our WolfPack™ Modular Matrix Switchers that has instantaneous video switching delivering full 3G/HD/SD-SDI video powered by our WolfPack engine implemented at each output port. This high-performance engine processes SDI signals by executing EDID hops 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 this SDI card with our 4K/60 cards in the same matrix chassis. These SDI 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 SDI 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 SDI 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 SDI 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: What other cards can this coexist with?
A: As the SDI cards belong to the 1080p type they can only work with all the 1080p HDMI/DVI/HDBaseT cards and also can work with the 4K60 HDMI/Fiber cards. They cannot coexist with the 4K30 cards.
Q: Which chassis do these work with?
A: The SDI cards work with the 9x9, 18x18 and 36x36 card cage chassis. They cannot mix with the 1080p, 4K30 and 4K60 cards in one chassis.
Q: What are the D1 And D2, etc settings for SDI?
A: D1, D2 and so on letters are stands for the DIP switch on the SDI cards, they are the numbers from 1~8. Click on the PICTURES TAB and you will see there's an "ON" on the left up side and it stands for "0". So if we want to pull the D7 (the seventh DIP) to "0" we only need to pull up to "ON" side.
Q: Tell me about the DIP switch for resolution adjustment vs Auto adapts to 3G/HD/SD-SDI...
A: With DIP switch, we can manually set up the resolution according to the resolution table(please help to check in the attachment). Auto adaption will be uncontrollable, it will defect and auto adapt to it.
Q: Please explain the DIP switch as why do you need it if it is auto?
A: Sometimes you might need a specific resolution and if it's auto adaption then it may not work. Try the DIP switch setting up the specification. Tt still has the 3.5mm audio selection and image inversion functions.
Q: Does the SDI card support audio within the SDI signal?
A: Yes, the SDI card can support the audio within the SDI signal. Besides our cards also support the 3.5mm audio embedded and de-embedded.
Q: if the SDI loop out monitor resolution is different then that TV resolution, what happens?
A: Normally if there's no SDI signal, the display will show green/purple/ black screen.
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: 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
