  • The 8 x 8 HDMI Matrix Switch provides unrivaled versatility when controlling video output on high-resolution HDMI displays. Each input can be routed to any output, or the same input can be routed to all outputs or any combination, eliminating the need to manually move cables to display HDMI video from different sources on different screens.

    The switch supports sharp, highly defined video and works with wide range of resolutions from PC XGA to WUXGA 1920 x 1200 and HDTV/DTV resolutions 480i/480p, 576i/576p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. It also carries the high-speed digital video signaling of TMDS formats for 10-, 12-, 16-, or 32-bit Deep Color. Plus, it provides support for 19:10 aspect ratio.

    In addition to built-in EDID tables and manual copy functions, the switch also features unique, automatic EDID handling, which ensures optimum display mode and compatibility with any connected HDMI or DVI monitor at all times, without having to manually copy the EDID table from one of the screens.

    It's ideal for any venue where multiple high-definition displays must be managed: corporate theaters, meeting rooms, classrooms, and broadcasting studios. When used with digital signage, the switch enables you to quickly switch a display from one digital signage source to another.

    Switching is easy—switch using front-panel buttons, the included IR remote controller, or an RS-232 connection.
