The SB-5688LCM-CT is high-performance 8x8 matrix routing switcher with (8) HDMI inputs and (8) HDMI and (8) CATx outputs supported simultaneously. The SB-5688LCM-CT is based on HDBaseT™ technology that supports full resolution HDMI video with embedded audio, RS-232, and bi-directional IR, all over a single CATx cable. With a signal bandwidth of 340Mhz, there is no signal degradation. High Definition Digital signals can be selected and distributed to any of the (16) outputs simultaneously (8x channels x2). The switcher is certified as being fully HDMI and HDCP 2.2 compliant, compatible with HDMI V1.4a 3D formats, and data rates up to 6.75Gbps. Supports UXGA/WUXGA/DVI 1920x1200 resolutions to any HD display. The SB-5688LCM-CT has (1) CAT6/CAT6a and HDMI connector for each output, effectively making this an 8x16 switcher (same signal on both outputs). (1) RJ-45 connection on each output extends the HDMI signal to remote location via HDBaseT™ CATx cable extended to a HDBaseT™ receiver. The EDID can be selected between (8) different modes. Control is provided via front panel push buttons, IR remote or via RS-232 or TCP/IP (not a web-browser) and a RS-232 Windows GUI interface is provided for matrix routing. This product has a 30 day warranty.

The SB-5688LCM-CT is high-performance 8x8 matrix routing switcher with (8) HDMI inputs and that supports (8) HDMI and (8) CAT5e/6/7 outputs simultaneously.


RS-232 port for switcher control and firmware updates.


Both HDBaseT™ and HDMI Outputs can be used simultaneously.
