PESA PRO 8X8 HDMI Switcher

PESA’s 8X8 HDMI Switcher for CAT5/6 remote connections

Infocomm, Las Vegas – June 7, 2010: PESA continues to grow its professional audio video market offerings with the introduction of an 8X8 HDMI switcher. The PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT enables users to easily connect up to eight HDMI sources, such as Blu-Ray Disc Players, DVD players, DVR recorders, Satellite TV set-top boxes, HDMI cameras, computers, and game consoles to eight HDMI displays. The frame features High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compatibility which eliminates the problems normally encountered with HDCP encoding on switching devices that send video transports simultaneously to more than one display. The new PESA PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT is an innovative product that fulfills professional A/V integration requirements for multi-source HDMI distribution, making it effective for use with all HDMI displays and projection systems used in corporate, government, educational, or digital signage settings.

Housed in a compact enclosure, the frame is easily positioned on a table top or installed in a 1RU space with the optional mounting ears. The PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT is compliant with HDMI version 1.3 and supports resolutions up to 1080p60 with 36-bit color depth, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD. This HDMI compliant switcher accepts up to 8 HDMI direct connections on the inputs and dual-port RJ45 cable connections on the outputs. For each output, a CAT 5/6 to HDMI mini-receiver is included for cable conversion, EDID communications, and equalization adjustments. The mini-receiver is connected via two CAT 5/6 cables (TMDS and DDC) supporting HDMI distribution up to 35m for 1080p60. The receiver is powered from the CAT 5/6 cabling, so no additional power supply is required. Additionally, users can switch among the 8 HDMI sources remotely using a pushbutton selector on each receiver. The PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT switcher provides the highest video quality with HDTV 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions as well as VGA up to WUXGA (1920X1200) resolutions. Further, the built-in IR extension function enables users to make selections remotely via the sources remote control unit.

The PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT enables fast and easy switching by pressing buttons on the front panel, selecting ports via a supplied remote control, through an RS-232 serial port with the supplied software or any 3rd party control systems supporting RS-232 interfaces. Each HDMI switcher comes with direct switching software which can be installed on a host PC running Windows® operating system.

PESA’s PRO-8X8-HDMI-CAT is the right solution for HDMI switching systems requiring high reliability and high performance image quality. It is ideal for digital signage, telemedicine, military command centers, commercial, educational, and visualization environments where distribution of high resolution video with the highest possible image quality is essential.
