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