HDMI 4x4 Matrix HDBaseT Lite Kit - Requires Quality CAT5e Cable or Higher (CAT6)

Why Buy This System?

-- Supports long distance transmission and only a single RJ45 cable run is required from the matrix to your display devices. Installation time is dramatically reduced because of this. 
-- Future Proof - 3D/4Kx2K compatible
-- POH - Power over HDBaseT is supplied to the HDMI baluns
-- IR Routing -  Perfect for if you have identical source devices (2 Sky Boxes)
-- Full UK technical support provided free of charge with every purchase.

Quick Overview

Our HDBaseT matrix should be located in a central location and is perfect for high end installations that require minimal installation time. Simply run a single RJ45 cable to each location where a display device (HDTV or projector) is required. The matrix then allows 4 HDMI sources to be independently switched and and their functions controlled via IR at up to 4 HDMI enabled display devices. The four outputs can show the same or different sources at the same time. The matrix is plug and play and is therefore suitable for DIY installers, electricians, TV aerial installers & AV installers. The matrix also features more advanced settings for AV installers if required.

Key Technical Features & Specification


-- Bandwidth - 2.97Gbps
-- HDCP Compliant
-- Suitable for; 3D/1080P @ 60Hz 48 Bit Deep Colour 70m (230ft),
4Kx2K @ 30Hz 40m (130ft)
-- Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Pass Through
-- Dimensions - Baluns 107x107x27mm, Matrix 428x245x43mm
-- Bi-Directional IR Control - Upstream Routed IR Control (from the display devices to control the source devices), Downstream IR Control (from the matrix/source devices to control the display devices. The IR signal is not routed and is fixed from IR input 1 on the matrix to IR output 1 on the first HDMI balun, 2 to 2 etc).
-- IR Routing 20-60KHz - IR signals are routed to the correct source deivce from the display device. Very useful if you have two identical source devices such as two Sky HD Boxes. IR receivers connected to the HDMI baluns will route the IR signal to the correct input (SkyHD Box1 but not SkyHD Box2).

-- Satellite Remotes - These can be used to select the correct source (input) for the display device (output) you are watching. The matrix automatically recognises which display device (output) you are in front of. 
-- EDID Management - More information below
-- Operating Temperature - 0 to 40°C 
-- HDMI Type A (Standard) Locking Sockets, 4 HDMI Inputs & 4 HDMI Mirrored Outputs & 1 HDMI Output At Each Balun 
-- 4 x RJ45 Outputs From Matrix - 1 x RJ45 Input At Each Balun
-- Power Supplies (Suitable for Rest of World) - 100-240V 50/60Hz AC, 12V DC 5A
-- POH Power Over HDBaseT - Only two power supplies are required and both can be located centrally next to the matrix. One powers the matrix and the other powers the 4 HDMI baluns.
-- LCD Display - Shows what source each output is displaying, the buttons on the front of the matrix can be used for manual selection.
-- Master Remote - This remote allows you to change the input source for any output. Commonly left next to the matrix in the central location. 
-- RS232 - There is one main RS232 port on the matrix to allow control of it. The other RS232 ports on the matrix correspond to the relevant balun. The RS232 terminals on the matrix allow control, testing and adjusting of display devices (high end installation).
-- RJ45 Terminal On Matrix -  To enable TCP/IP control of the matrix from a PC (installation disk supplied). 


How do I use it?

The RJ45 cables, which should be run from the matrix to each display device need to be terminated with an 'RJ45 connector plug' wired in a 'straight through' 568B wiring format. We don't recommend terminating on to wall plates as this reduces signal strength. The RJ45 cables then get connected into the matrix outputs and to the HDMI baluns (situated next to your display device).

HDMI cables should be connected between the source devices and the matrix and between the baluns on your display devices. 


Versatile

These kits are manufactured for us so we should be able to cater for specific reqiurements. If you require additional IR emitters/receivers or need to utilise one of the mirrored HDMI outputs (and still require IR control), please call us for technical help. 

What Else May I Need For The Installation?

-- Brush Wall Plates For Each Display Device - It is not good practice to terminate on to wall plates as this reduces signal strength, brush plates are a great alternative as they allow cables to be run straight through a wall without termination. 
-- HDMI Cables - For connecting to TVs and source equipment
-- RJ45 Cable - Make sure good quality pure copper CAT5e or CAT6 cable (or higher) is used in the installation.
If you require 2 way IR Control, additional IR receivers & IR emitters can be purchased.

EDID Function

This is an extremely clever function that ensures you get the most out of all the equipment connected to your Matrix. This is quite an advanced setting so don't worry if you don't understand, the Matrix will work fine without changing these settings. If you would like more information, please contact us.

The matrix by default requests the following resolution and audio from the sources devices;

1080P @ 60Hz Audio 2CH PCM

The matrix can request a different resolution or audio from the source devices by altering the 'DIP switches' on the side of the matrix. For example if you had 4 TVs that were all 4Kx2K compatible and they were all be used with 5.1 amplifiers, the matrix could be altered to request;

HDMI 4Kx2K, Audio 5.1CH PCM/DTS/Dolby

When your sources are powered up or when you manually request them to determine what resolution they can output, they will go to 4Kx2K by default. If one of your TVs was 1080P, you would have to go into the settings of your source device (such as a Blu-Ray Player) and drop the resolution down manually.

 

If this all seems a litle too technical for you, then why not get in touch with us...
