Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher w/100ms Switching, Scaling & Apps
HDTV Supplys WolfPack™ 1080p Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher is a preconfigured integrated HDMI video and HDMI audio modular HDMI matrix Switcher. The 9x9 chassis back plane allows HDMI technologies to be converted and switched eliminating external converters and it allows any input to be routed to any output, or the same input to be routed to all outputs. You can control the WolfPack™ Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher via front buttons, WEB GUI control, or the RS-232 serial port and with its iOS and Android apps. This matrix also has optional Elan and 2-Way Control4 drivers.
The core of the 8x8 HDMI Matrix HDBaseT Switcher consists of an 9x9 Modular Matrix chassis and its highly configurable backplane that supports 9 input cards and 9 output cards. The Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher is also 1080p at 60 Hz compliant. By having 1-port slide in cards the matrix is very reliable as in the unlikely even there is a loss of signal you just replace the card with a spare you have purchased or order another from us. The complete matrix doesn't have to be sent to us for a repair.
The WolfPack Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher allows switching between inputs with a clean video cut and frame-to-frame switching with no glitches. The WolfPacks Modular HDMI Matrix Switcher advanced processor allows it to process live signals simultaneously which means it can seamlessly and instantly switch (~100ms or 0.1 second) between HDMI inputs and outputs. Most non-seamless HDMI matrix switchers require a delay of several seconds before they can switch between devices but with this WolfPack family that wait time is completely eliminated.
100ms Seamless HDMI Switching: This WolfPack™ Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher delivers 100ms instantaneous video switching with full 1080p/60 video at each port. This high-performance engine processes HDMI signals by executing EDID hops and HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both the source input, the display outputs and scales the inputs for the best output resolution. It sets the output clock timing and uses a frame buffer to retain the input signal information for the fastest output.
Separate Embedded Audio In and De-embedded Audio Out: The Seamless 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switcher allows you to display video with separate audio coming from another audio source as it supports embedding the audio on the HDMI input cards 3.5mm audio connector and then de-embedding the audio on the HDMI output cards 3.5mm audio.
Hardware Scaling via DIP Switches on both in and out cards: The 8-pin DIP switch on the cards are for the manual scaling up/down. Each HDMI card has a 8-pin DIP switch to select multiple resolution settings to conform to your HDMI source devices and the HDMI destination devices.
