The 8 x 8 DVI Matrix Switcher with Audio from Black Box allows you to route any of 8 sources to any of 8 destinations, and is intended for A/V setups where the distribution of video devices to displays needs to be managed centrally. It works with DVI-D digital sources at up to 1900 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution. Legacy analog devices and video content with HDCP encryption are not supported. Along with video, there is a dedicated stereo analog audio input per video input. However audio can be routed independently from video. For example, video from input 1 can be routed to output 1 while audio from input 1 can be routed to input 2. As a matrix switcher, a single input can also be distributed to two or more outputs.

The switcher can be controlled locally via front-panel buttons, IR remote, or remotely using RS-232 and a third-party control or automation solution such as Crestron or AMX.
Thanks to signal reclocking, you can connect sources up to 115' away, and send to devices as far as 23' away -- depending on the quality of the DVI cable and presence of RF interference
Front-panel LCD shows all programmed commands and switch responses
Saves EDID (Extended Device ID data) to help ensure source and display devices are configured to optimal common resolutions
Save up to 10 preset matrix configurations
Lock Safe prevents the unit from accidentally being set to an incorrect mode
4RU rackmountable form factor
