A complex combination of HDMI source and display devices can be achieved

using a HDMI Matrix Switch. It is used to route and relay HDMI Video from

multiple inputs to multiple output devices simultaneously. By eliminating the

need to disconnect and reconnect the devices, this piece of hardware saves

time, effort and unnecessary clutter. Since HDMI technology uses only a single

cable to relay audio as well as video, high definition video and multi channel

audio can be relayed as encrypted and uncompressed digital streams over a

single thin cable. Hardware devices such as HD-DVD players, satellite set-top

boxes, TiVo systems or PCs that are HDMI-equipped and HDCP-enabled are all

compatible with this switch.
The HDMI Matrix supports a variety of form factors including 2x2, 4x2, 4x4

and 8x8 input - output configurations. In order to achieve larger distributions

and multiple viewing combinations, one can daisy chain or stack these switches.

Easy to install, and operating on simple plug and play functionality, setup

requires only connecting the HDMI sources to the matrixs inputs and the

displays to its outputs. Once powered on, the switch is ready to use. Control

over the sources and displays can be exercised using infra red remote control,

front panel push buttons or RS232, depending on model type. Indication of the

selected source is provided by the LEDs on the unit.
This HDMI Video Matrix Switch works at a HDTV resolution up to 1080p, 2k and

computer resolution up to 1920 x 1200 and relays images without ghosting of

images or data loss, resulting in crisp and clear images. The built-in repeater

and equalized chipset can boost digital HD signal length and ensures that the

resultant display is not pirated. A key feature is the ability to extend the

range of HDMI compliant devices by equalizing and re-clocking the HDMI signal.

Supporting a video amplifier bandwidth of 2.25 Gbps or 225 MHz, this device is

equipped with regulatory approvals from CE, FCC and RoHS along with being

compliant to HDMI and HDCP standards.
This HDMI Matrix Switch finds usage in digital signage applications, commercial

establishments and home theater set ups.
