mHub : An Affordable 4×4 Multiroom HDTV System
Here’s a brand new multiroom HD TV distribution system that will send 1080p to four rooms in your home.
The 4×4 Matrix Supports HD resolutions up to 1080p at 60Hz (including 3D) and distributes your HDTV up to 50 metres over a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable with the ‘Follow-Me TV’ feature allowing you to pause a movie in one room and resume watching it in another.
The systems IR control means all of your devices and TVs can be controlled using the SmartControl remote. On top of that there’s RS232 and IP control so you can integrate the system into third-party home automation setups (Control4 and Crestron drivers are in the works) or control it directly from your iPhone or tablet.
The mHub can be hidden away along with your four input sources in a cupboard or even in another room and mHub’s mini receiver box tucks behind your HDTV. The only visible element to mHub is the infrared transmitter that attaches to the side of your TV.
The mHub package should be a fairly straight forward DIY install and works out at £250 per room. The kit includes the central hub, four mini receiver boxes with 5V power supplies, four infrared transmitters and receivers, and the HDanywhere SmartControl.
The four room mHub setup is available now for £999.99 including VAT and we hope to get our hands on the kit in the next few weeks for review. In the meantime tease yourself with the videos below…
