VEEMUX® SM-8X4-HDA (Front & Back)

Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.

HDTV Audio Video Matrix Switch Digital Signage Product

RoHS Compliant HDTV Matrix Switch

Features & Applications

The VEEMUX® SM-8X4-HDA is a versatile multi-input audio/video matrix switch that independently switches eight sets of YPbPr component video and analog/digital audio signals to any or all of the four outputs. Each input and output has YPbPr component video, L/R analog audio (balanced/unbalanced), and digital audio on coax (S/PDIF).
  • Supports High Definition and Standard Definition YPbPr component component video, S-Video or composite video.
  • Audio can be unbalanced analog stereo, balanced analog stereo or digital S/PDIF.
    • Supports S/PDIF, DTS Digital Surround™, and Dolby Digital™ 5.1 digital signals.
  • Supports 480i (interlaced), 480p (progressive), 720i, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p formats.
  • Features break-away audio-allows audio to be switched independent of video.
  • Equipped with volume control: -80dB to 10dB, in 1dB steps.
  • Control the switch through Ethernet, RS232 or front panel buttons.
  • The SM-8X4-HDA is the ideal solution for many applications, such as digital signage, mission critical command centers, sports facilities and entertainment venues.
