Essential Info

The CMX1616A2 Matrix switch with full DSP audio is a full featured video and audio matrix switch. It is most commonly used to independently distribute video and audio to several different viewing areas from a set of common sources. CMX1616A2 provides 16 audio output zones from 16 audio sources and 8 video output zones from 8 video sources. This switcher removes the need of installing multiple cable boxes throughout your home to watch high-quality video. Engineered to be used in a whole house audio/video solution, this 16 x 16 amplified component matrix switch allows runs of up to 300 feet. Connections to and from the Matrix Switcher require the use of a RCA Component Video and Audio cable and an Optical Digital Audio cable, sold separately.

The CMX1616A2 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 CMX1616A2 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 CMX1616A2 with the same keys you normally push to switch your AV receiver or TV. The CMX1616A2 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 CMX1616A2 can be reprogrammed as much as you like.

The CMX1616A2 has the following features:
  • 16 input sets, each includes the following:
          Composite video (8 inputs)
          Digital audio Coax/RCA (16 inputs)
          Digital audio Toslink / Optical (6 outputs)
          Analog audio R/L (16 inputs)
  • 16 independently controllable output sets, each includes the following:
          Composite video (8 outputs)
          Digital audio Coax / RCA (16 inputs)
          Digital audio Toslink / Optical (6 outputs)
          Analog audio R/L (16 outputs)
          Active audio automatically sourced from active channel on selected input
  • Full 256 step volume control on all audio outputs
  • 256 step volume equalization on all audio inputs
  • Programmable balance control on all audio outputs
  • Programmable bass and treble control on all audio outputs
  • Programmable audio delay for lip sync correction on all audio inputs and outputs
  • Real time audio delay adjustment for optimized AV sync
  • Automatic signal activity detection and switching
  • Analog to digital audio up-conversion
  • Flash memory backup of all device settings and presets

  • 1x - Owners Manual

  • More Info

    Audio Volume Control
    The CMX1616A2 integrates fully independent input and output volume adjustments on all audio channels using the best quality Digital Signal Processing (DSP). The input volume control allows you to equalize the volume from all sources to a common level. Many satellite boxes output volume levels are below nominal, so without this feature you would need to adjust the volume manually every time you switch between Cable/DVD to satellite. After equalization, all your sources will have the same volume level.

    Video Distribution
    CMX1616A2 is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home. 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 CMX1616A2 uses the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get.
