The HDMI/HDBaseT 6x4 Matrix Switcher from Intelix is designed for use in conference rooms that have two in-room inputs extended to the rack, a few local sources at the rack, two discrete displays, a VTC codec, and a recorder. It features four HDMI inputs, two of which allow analog audio embedding on balanced inputs. Two HDBaseT inputs are also provided, and support 1080p HDMI video with audio, wide-band IR tunneling (for IR control of sources), RS-232 routing, and HDCP up to 196'. Each HDBaseT input port supplies power to the attached extender, eliminating the need for a power supply at the source end. All inputs feature selectable HDCP compliance and advanced EDID handling to address challenging system design parameters.
The switcher also features HDBaseT twisted pair extension for each output, and simultaneous HDMI on the first two outputs, allowing the same signal to be routed to the HDMI connector and a remote destination with an HDBaseT receiver. Each output features a stereo audio de-embedder for balanced connection to amplifiers or DSPs. Audio outputs feature breakaway capabilities, allowing audio from the sources to be sent to any output. Each HDBaseT output port supplies power to the attached extender, eliminating the need for a power supply at the display end.
The FLX-64 can be controlled via front panel buttons, front panel IR, external IR, remote IR through HDBaseT extenders, RS-232, and Ethernet. Clear button caps provide legible text on the front panel, which can be customized for each installation. The matrix includes a simple IR remote control to allow IR switching. This IR remote control can be learned into universal remotes and IR-based control systems. An IR All In port is provided, which allows one IR connection to control all four remote displays.
The matrix also features a full command set for RS-232 and Ethernet control with third-party control systems, plus control and system configuration via a web browser. RS-232 commands to remote displays can also be embedded in the control stream through the matrix from both the RS-232 and Ethernet control ports, which will reduce the number of serial ports required for the control system.
