Here’s a new 8×8 video matrix switcher. Feed all your AV sources (DVD Player, MEdia Extenders, CCTV, PVR etc) into this hub and then distribute its composite output to 8 different zones via CAT5 cable. Prices from around £700…
Input sources may be audio/video (e.g. DVD, Sky™ Digibox, Freeview decoder etc.), audio only (e.g. Hi-fi) or camera (e.g. CCTV camera with or without PIR or audio.)
Signal selection can be controlled by either a hand-held infrared remote controller at the display zone or via the RS232 serial port at the control hub e.g. Crestron™. Full function control of the source is achieved by using the original source infrared remote control or a multi-device infrared controller (e.g. Harmony™ or Pronto™.) A wideband infrared return path is used permitting the control of non-38kHz sources such as Bang & Olufson™ and cable boxes.
