With Atlona's new 8x8 Matrix Switcher you are able to store all of your home's video media sources in one place and control them anywhere in the home or office. 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 8x8 Matrix Switcher allows the use of running inexpensive CAT5e/6/7 cables to distribute high definition audio and video signals over extremely long runs. Be sure to get the HDMI Extender
which will allow you to terminate the CAT 5e/6/7 cable and transfer to an HDMI cable to deliver crystal clear HD signals. The Extender also allows you to use the included IR Receiver to transmit IR control signals back to the Matrix.
This matrix switcher also features HDBaseT based technology which allows the user to send IR, RS-232, video and audio signals over a single CAT5e/6/7 and can extend all the signals up to 330 feet. All audio passes through the 8x8 Matrix Switcher which supports all Lossy and Lossless formats of Dolby and DTS sound. In the event the main power supply becomes inoperable, the built in redundant power supply will seamlessly take over the matrix’s energy needs. This new matrix switcher delivers the best quality audio and video signals with a pass through of up to 1080p, 1920x1200, 3D and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio signals. This unit is also compatible with all third party remotes like the Universal Remote R50
The Atlona 16x16 HDMI Matrix Switcher is also available as a 4x4 HDMI Matrix Switcher
or 16x16 HDMI Matrix Switcher
, both sold separately.
This matrix switcher is traditionally used in a whole house audio/video solution and is installed on a A/V Equipment Rack
with other components.
For optimal HD video and sound, be certain to use high quality HDMI Cables
to connect the media source to the matrix.
