  • Deep color: The new spec HDMI 1.3 spec allows for billions of colors instead of millions.

An audio break away feature allows switching the digital audio independent of the video. Allows listening to CDs in the DVD player, while viewing video from a different source.

Zektor HDMI5 5X1 HDMI Switcher Features:

Five Inputs, One Output: The HDMI5 is a fully digital, PS3 compatible HDMI switch. The HDMI5 decodes all DVI/HDMI formats and re-encodes them on it's output. The HDMI5 can correct for a multitude of out of spec signals, correct them, and still output DVI 1.0 / HDMI 1.3 compliant data.

All DVI / HDMI / HDMI-Audio / HDCP Modes ARE Supported: This includes HDMI-Audio and all DVI-HDCP and HDMI-HDCP modes.

All Resolutions Supported: The Zektor HDMI5 5X1 HDMI switcher supports all DVI 1.0, HDMI 1.0, HDMI 1.1, HDMI 1.2 and HDMI 1.3 resolutions. Everything from 480p through 1080p, and computer resolutions from 640x480 through 1920x1200. All HDMI 1.3 resolutions are supported through 1080p, all HDMI 1.3 deep color modes are supported through 1080i.

Tunable Cable Length Compensation on Inputs: The Zektor HDMI5 5X1 HDMI switcher features independently adjustable equalization on each of its inputs. Easy front panel adjustment allows sparkle free video when using input cable lengths of up to 65ft (20m) in the 1080p mode, and even longer lengths in lower resolution modes. Or by adjusting for short cables noise immunity is increased, for increased picture stability.

It includes the Zektor's Exclusive Secure HDMI cable clamping system (See picture below): The HDMI5 uses Zektor's Secure HDMI clamping system to prevent HDMI cables from falling out of the back of your unit. You can literally hang an HDMI5 by a HDMI cable! (We don't recommend this as a mounting practice.)

The clamping system is universal, easy to use, and adjusts to any size HDMI cable. Never worry about lose HDMI cables again!

Independent Digital Audio Switching: The HDMI5 features an independent digital audio channel. This is needed to route digital audio signals when switching DVI, and allows the convenience of routing audio separately from video when switching HDMI signals. Both Optical (Toslink) and Coax (SPDIF) can be routed through the HDMI5. All inputs accept both Optical and Coax, and both Optical and Coax are available as outputs simultaneously. All conversions between Coax and Optical formats are done automatically.

Note: The HDMI5 does not separate HDMI audio from the HDMI video information.

Audio and Video Break Away: An easy to use, intuitive audio/video breakaway feature allows switching the digital audio stream independent of the video stream. Listen to CDs while keeping an eye on the score. Easily switch the video back and forth between two inputs, leaving the audio unaffected, or switch between audio inputs leaving the video unchanged.

Note: The HDMI5 does not breakout HDMI audio. HDMI audio always follows the HDMI video information.

Adjustable Audio and Video Switching Mute Delays: With a multitude of video monitors and projectors on the market, it's impossible to design a switch that will accommodate them all at their full switching speed potentials. Some monitors require a substantial delay before they respond to the new video signals, others are very fast. Instead of designing for the slowest monitor on the market, we designed the HDMI5 to give you full control over the video and digital audio switch timings. From no delay, to milliseconds, to seconds, pick the timing that matches your monitor. The video and audio switching times are independently adjustable for maximum control.

Easy to Read Front Panel: All video and audio breakaway modes, and relay settings, are easily read from across the room. Ideal during installations, to verify settings without having to cross the room. Nearly all functions can be accessed through the front panel, including learning new IR codes, LED bright and dim levels, cable tuning, audio / video switching delays, etc. Intuitive displays along with an easy to use manual makes customizing the HDMI5 for your particulars needs a breeze.

Zektor's Exclusive IIR Learning The Zektor HDMI5 5X1 HDMI switcher comes with it's own remote control. However if more than one HDMI5 is used in one room, the HDMI5 features Zektor's exclusive IIR (Intelligent Infra-Red) learning. Zektor's IIR learning allows the HDMI5 to work with virtually any remote control! All discrete codes are supported as well.

Two user defined Auxiliary Relays: Open and close window shades? Raise and lower a projection screen? You decide. The HDMI5 includes two low voltage (30V @ 5A) relays that can be used to control anything you need controlling. The relays can be set to activate whenever a particular input or inputs are selected. Or they can be set to turn on for a user adjustable amount of time before turning off, or simply toggle when a button is pressed, or any combination of the above. With two dedicated front panel and IR buttons, let your imagination decide what to do with this feature.

An Abundance of Control Features: Whatever your control needs are, the HDMI5 can accommodate them. There are numerous ways to control the HDMI5 and include the following:
  • Front panel button control.
  • Use the included Zektor remote controller.
  • Teach the HDMI5 to learn to use a new remote controller (A great solution when two or more HDMI5 share the same room/rack).
  • Rear panel hardwired IR jack.
  • Rear panel RS-232 using the K.I.S.S. protocol.
  • Rear panel +12v On/Off control.
Full Featured Remote Control Interface: A full featured IR command set is available using the supplied remote, or any user supplied remote control, including commands such as: Power Toggle, Direct Channel Selection, Audio / Video Breakaway Toggle, and Relay Toggle. For better integration with universal remotes with macro capabilities, the HDMI5 also responds to the discrete commands Power On, Power Off, Direct Audio/Video/Normal breakaway selection, Relay On, and Relay Off.

RS-232 using the K.I.S.S. Protocol: The HDMI5 features Zektor's exclusive K.I.S.S.(Keep It Simple Serial) protocol. Designed by engineers who have spent their careers having to deal with badly designed serial command sets, the K.I.S.S. protocol is one of the easiest, yet most versatile bi-directional protocols on the market.

Firmware Upgradeable: Something new on the market, or a feature we haven't thought of yet? No problem, the HDMI5 allows firmware upgrades through its serial port.

Auto Dimming Display: The LED indicator lights can be set to be always Bright, always Dim, or to an Auto Dim mode. The Auto Dim mode will fade the LEDs from bright to dim about 4 seconds after a channel is selected. Full control is given over the bright and dim levels. You can even have the front panel lights dim to fully off, allowing the the HDMI5 to be used in a full range of lighting conditions, from full sunlight to no-light.

Rack Mountable Metal Enclosure (1RU): Enclosed in a steel chassis with a machined, brushed aluminum front panel, and available in black or silver, the HDMI5 easily integrates into your existing home theater environment.

Optional International Power Supply: Available with an international power supply for 90-264VAC, 47-63Hz operation. The international supply comes with adapters for UK, EURO, AUS and USA use. The international supply is a unique unit that comes with four different blade sets for the USA, UK, Australia and Europe. These blade inserts actually assemble into the base unit and allows the power suply to be used in any of these countries. These inserts are not a low cost adapter but actually designed for the power supply and are excellent in quality.
