Route any eight HDMI sources to any eight HDMI outputs

The Gefen 8x8 Crosspoint Matrix for HDMI routes up to eight Hi-Def sources at resolutions up to 1080p Full HD with Deep Color and multichannel digital audio to any eight HDTV displays. This product eliminates the need to disconnect and reconnect HDMI sources and displays. The 8x8 Crosspoint Matrix for HDMI supports 3DTV and advanced digital audio formats such as DolbyTrue HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Each source is accessible at all times from any display by using the included IR Remote Control Unit, the RS-232 port, IP (Telnet or Web Server), or using the front-panel push buttons. This product uses Gefen FST technology.

Fast Switching Technology (FST) is a Gefen software implementation for HDMI products. FST was created to improve the lengthy HDMI authentication process, based on the HDMI and HDCP specifications. FST allows connecting/disconnecting or turning any of the HDTV displays on or off without affecting other displays within the audio/video distribution system.

How It Works

Using HDMI cables, connect up to eight Hi-Def sources to the HDMI inputs on the matrix. Connect up to eight HDTV displays to the HDMI outputs on the matrix. 3D content can be displayed only when connecting a 3D source. Connect the included power supply to the matrix and plug it into an available electrical outlet. Turn on the matrix by pressing the power switch and then apply power to the sources and to the displays.

Supported HDMI Features:

Resolutions up to 1080p Full HD
12 bit Deep Color
LPCM 7.1 Audio, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio
3DTV Pass-through
Lip Sync Pass-through
