Factory refurbished, factory sealed, Zektor HDS4.2 4-device component (HDTV) video and audio 1080p component video switcher with 2-outputs (one buffered for long cable runs) and front panel switches.
NOTE: This product has been discontinued. See the above SIMILAR Tab for equivalent products.
The Zektor HDS4.2 1080p component video switcher is capable of switching four sources of component video, digital audio (coax and optical), analog audio, and outputting to two component video displays, all with the convenience of IR remote controllability. Its flexible inputs and passive switch contacts allow for switching of 5 wire video formats such as VGA (RGBHV), as well as reverse operation (1 source to 4 outputs).
The Zektor HDS4.2 1080p component video switcheris using the proven passive switch design from the Zektor HDS4 1080p component video switcher, has switches and adds a buffered output capable of driving long cable runs for large home theaters. Also available in the new model is Zektor HDS4.2's Z-Slot, which allows an optional RS-232 module today, and other communication options in the future.
Zektor HDS4.2 1080p component video switcher Features:
Zektor HDS4.2 - 4 Inputs, 2 Outputs 1080p component video switcher. Up to four sources of HD component video, and two outputs. One output is a passive pass-through; the second output is buffered with high speed amplifiers capable of the full HD bandwidth. Video performance at 37MHz is -0.1dB on the passive output, and -0.1dB on the buffered output (avg. of all channels). -3dB bandwidth is over 100MHz on both outputs.
Zektor HDS4.2 1080p component video switcher Passive Switching Design. Video and analog audio signals pass through Silver Alloy with Gold plating, relay contacts. This passive design provides the same quality as a direct cable bypass. All inactive inputs are 75 ohm terminated to reduce cross talk, and to greatly reduce the possibility of spurious noise pickup on any unused inputs. The passive design also allows signals to be routed backwards through the switch, allowing up to four display devices to be switched to one source. (Note: Digital audio and the second video output are not bi-directional.)
All Needed Inputs. Component Video, L/R Analog Audio, Digital Audio on Coax (SPDIF) / Optical Digital Audio (Toslink) is available on each input of the Zektor HDS4.2.
4-Input Selector Switches. These buttons allow direct selection of a desired input. It has an on/off switch, also.
Digital Audio. Optical (Toslink) and Coax (SPDIF) are both automatically converted. When either input is active, both signals are available on the outputs.
Analog Audio. The Left and Right Analog Audio inputs use the same passive design as the Component video inputs. This allows them to also be used for high bandwidth signals such as RGBHV or VGA (some adapters to RCA plugs would be needed).
Remote Control Friendly. Controllable using any Universal Remote. Control the Zektor HDS4.2 1080p component video switcher using any universal remote by selecting from a small list of existing manufacturer command codes, or by teaching the HDS4.2 1080p component video switcher to use any unused buttons on your existing remote. There's no need to use a learning remote control (though the HDS4 will work fine with one); the HDS4 can be taught to use any unused buttons on your existing remote control.
Remote Control interface allows: Power Toggle, Bright/Dim/Auto Display Modes, Direct Channel Selection, Channel Up, Channel Down and for better integration with universal remotes with macro capabilities Power On, and Power Off are also available.
Auto Dimming Display. The LED indicator lights can be set to Bright, Dim, or Auto mode. Auto mode will fade the LEDs to half power after a channel is selected.
Full Size Metal Enclosure for better integration into your system with machined aluminum front panel. (17"W x 6.5"D x 1.75"H)
Rack Mountable, 1RU. (Rack mount ears available in black only, sold separately for $25.)
Gold Plated Connectors used throughout design.
One year warranty.
