The MX-8HDMI-CATX Matrix Switch is one of the most flexible and cost effective solutions in the market for distributing uncompressed 1080P HD video with 7.1 surround sound audio from up to 8 HDMI sources to 8 remote displays. Using a single CATx cable from each of the 8 outputs, uncompressed HDMI video/audio can be extended up to 60 meters away from the sources. In addition, the MX-8HDMI-CATX provides an HDMI connection on each output allowing local loopback for monitoring and distribution.
The built in IR extension of the MX-8HDMI-CATX allows remote access from displays to sources up to 60 meters away. Sources such as Blu-Ray and DVD players, as well as satellite and cable set top boxes can easily be controlled remotely through IR. The MX-8HDMI-CATX has the added benefit of PoC (Power over CATX) which powers the receiver over a single CATX cable. The PoC feature helps to make a clean installation by eliminating the need for additional “wal-wart” power supplies that clutter up power strips.
Multiple options are available for controlling the MX-8HDMI-CATX: front panel push button controls, IR, serial RS-232 and Ethernet. The RS-232 offers a convenient method of control for installations that require 3rd party control systems.
