Ever wished you could view full quality HDTV throughout your home without a closet full of equipment in every room? The VMX99 integrates everything you need to distribute all your HDTV video to all the displays throughout your home. This unit is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home. Many manufacturers claim their products can do this, but very few can accomplish this without distortion of the video. The most important amplifier design factors in driving long cables are source impedance matching, output connector quality, amplifier bandwidth, and amplifier current drive and slew rate. The VMX99 amplifier uses the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get. Connections to and from the Matrix Switcher require the use of a Component Video cable
, sold separately.
The VMX99 has an ethernet port/RS-232 and can be fully controlled using a standard web browser. This allows you to use any networked PC, or even your smartphone, to control this matrix switch. This unit also supports firmware updates. By keeping your matrix up to date with the latest firmware, this will add the capability to control products released at future dates.
The VMX99 contains ZeroKey Technology which clones the IR code so that any control key on virtually any remote can control the matrix switch. This technology does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote. The best way to use this technology is to program the VMX99 with the same keys you normally push to switch your AV receiver or TV. The VMX99 will switch at the same time as your TV or receiver without the need for complicated macros or pushing extra buttons. ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory and you will not need to reprogram even if you lose power. If you buy a new remote to operate your home entertainment center, the VMX99 can be reprogrammed as much as you like.
