Using an 18x18 chassis back plane allows HDMI 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. You can control the WolfPack™ Seamless 4x18 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/18-HDBaseT Receivers via its front panel buttons, a WEB GUI, its iOS & Android Apps and optional Elan and Control4 drivers. The matrix does not have IR nor a remote control to control it.
The core of the 4x18 HDMI Matrix HDBaseT Switcher consists of an 18x18 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 18 input cards and 18 output cards. The Seamless 4x18 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/18-HDBaseT Receivers is also 1080p at 60 Hz compliant. 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.
HDTV Supply's implementation of the HDBaseT technology and this product adds virtually zero latency to the HDMI audio and video signal, less than 7 microseconds (0.000007 sec) over 220 feet of CATx cable. At 100 feet you are talking about 3 microseconds (0.000003 sec). This means for example, in a church or auditorium, the speakers lips are always in synch with the video image on all the TVs and projectors 100's of feet away.
Hardware Scaling via DIP Switches on both in and out cards: The 8-pin DIP switch on the cards are for the up/down manual scaling of resolutions. 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.
