HDTV Supplys WolfPack 1080p Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers is a preconfigured integrated HDMI video and HDMI audio modular HDMI matrix Switcher. The 9x9 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 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers via front buttons, WEB GUI control, or the RS-232 serial port and with its iOS and Android apps. The matrix does not have IR nor a remote control but can be controlled with its iOS and Android App and other ways.
The core of the 4x8 HDMI Matrix HDBaseT Switcher consists of an 9x9 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 9 input cards and 9 output cards. The Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-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.
100ms Seamless HDMI Switching: This WolfPack™ Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers delivers 100ms instantaneous video switching with full 1080p/60 video at each port. This high-performance engine processes HDMI signals by executing EDID hops & HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input, the display outputs & scales the inputs for the best output resolution. It sets the output clock timing & uses a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output.
The WolfPack Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers allows switching between inputs with a clean video cut and frame-to-frame switching without glitches. The WolfPacks HDMI Matrix Switcher advanced processor allows it to process live signals simultaneously which means it can seamlessly & instantly switch (~100ms or 0.1 second) between HDMI inputs & outputs. Most non-seamless HDMI 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.

WolfPack™ 1080p Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher over CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers Configuration:
- 1 - 9-card in and 9 card out 1080p card cage
- 4 - 1-port 1080p HDMI input cards = 4-HDMI inputs
- 8 - 1-port 1080p HDBaseT output cards = 8-HDbaseT (RJ-45) outputs
- 8 - 1080p HDBaseT Receivers with RJ-45 inputs and POE

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.

This Seamless 4x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher via CAT5 w/8-HDBaseT Receivers 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:
- Elan g!™
- Media Switcher™
- 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:
- 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.
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.
