MuxLab 5x1 HDMI/HDBT Overview

The compact Muxlab 5x1 HDMI/HDBT Multimedia Presentation Scaler/Switcher offers five video inputs (HDMI and VGA) and six audio inputs (HDMI, VGA, and Mic). The VGA inputs support VGA, component (YPbPr), and composite video. The 5x1 switch scales and switches the video signal to HDMI and HDBaseT output for a transmission up to 230’, via Cat5e/6 cable with PoC support.

With one IR sensor, RS-232 port, and five IR emitters, bidirectional IR and RS-232 signals can be transmitted simultaneously between the 5x1 HDMI/HDBT and an HDMI Extender PoC/PoE Receiver (sold separately). The switch has various applications such as monitoring, conference room, conference centers, corporate boardrooms, hotels, hospitality rooms, big screen displays, television education, command/control centers, and smart homes.
