The SB-5688CK is a professional 8x8 matrix routing switch. Supporting (8) HDMI Inputs and (8) HDMI and (8) HDBaseT™ Outputs. The SB-5688CK is based on HDBaseT™ standards and supports full HDMI video resolutions with embedded EDID, Audio, RS-232, Ethernet and bi-directional IR, all over a single CATx cable. This unit has a wide frequency range of 25MHz ~ 340MHz so there is no signal degradation. High Definition Digital signals can be selected and distributed to any of the (8) Inputs to any of the (16) outputs simultaneously (channel outputs mirrored). The switcher is certified as being fully CEC and HDCP 1.3 and supports HDMI 1.4a, 4K2K@30Hz, DVI 1.0, 3D formats. Supports UXGA/WUXGA/DVI 1920x1200 resolutions to any HD display. The SB-5688CK has (1) HDMI port per Input and (8) HDMI and (8) HDBaseT™ ports per Ouput, effectively making this an (8) In by (16) Out switcher (same signal on both HDMI and HDBaseT™ outputs). Using the IR remote and the switcher’s HDBaseT™ extender transmitter (Tx) allows you to connect a source in a remote location. Likewise, the HDBaseT™ Output and our HDBaseT™ receivers allow you to connect a displays in remote locations. The EDID management can be selected between (7) different modes. Control is provided via front panel push buttons, IR remote, RS-232 or TCP/IP (not a web-browser). A RS-232 Windows GUI interface is provided for matrix routing control (Windows only).

Zone control with (8) independent remote controls provide easy channel selection based on independent remotes.
