The 8 x 8 HDMI Matrix Switch supports HDBaseT technology and uncompressed full-HD HDMI video with embedded audio, RS-232, and IR bi-directional signals, all over a single CATx cable. Analog audio input will be embedded into the HDMI signal and can be output as SPDIF, HDMI, or analog audio from an HDBaseT receiver (AVSW-HDMI-RX).

    With a signal bandwidth of 340 MHz, there is no signal degradation. High-definition digital signals can be selected and distributed to any 16 outputs simultaneously (8 channels x 2). The switch complies with CEC and HDMP 2.0 standards, HDMI V1.4a 3D formats, and data rates up to 6.75 Gbps. It also supports UXGA/WUXGA/DVI 1920 x 1200 resolution to any HD displays.
