SM-16X64-C5AV-1000 Audio/Video Matrix Switch via CAT5 to 1,000 Feet: 16x16 to 32x64
SM-16X64-C5AV-1000 (Front & Back)

Product Highlights

  • Supports Resolutions up to 2048x1536
  • Compatible with NTI's 600' and 1000' Extenders
  • Supports Touch Screen Monitors
  • HDMI Extender for use with Digital Signage
  • Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.

The VEEMUX® Audio/Video Matrix Switch routes audio and video inputs from many video sources to multiple displays (projectors, monitors, etc.) and speakers via inexpensive CAT5/5e/6 cable. It is capable of connecting to as many as 64 video sources via transmitters and 64 video displays via receivers with a maximum extension of 1,000 feet between the transmitters and receivers. In addition to the remote inputs/outputs, the switch features one direct-connect VGA and stereo audio input/output for every 16 remote RJ45 connectors.

The audio/video signal from a single input can be routed to one or more destinations. Each image will be as crisp and clear as if directly connected to the original source. Buffered video outputs and digital transmission of audio signals ensures integrity is maintained throughout the system.
