    How to Connect, Switch, and Extend HDMI Sources and Displays with Embedded Audio
    The SM-nXm-DVI-LCD is able to transmit HDMI audio and video using the DVI-HD-xx-MM male DVI-D to male HDMI cable. As the embedded audio will pass through the switch with this cable, both audio and non-audio versions of the matrix switch can be used.

    The output signal can be extended using the HDMI HDBase-T Extender (ST-C6HD-HDBT) to up to 600 feet away over CAT6a/7 solid cable. Only one power supply is necessary to power both the local and remote units.

    How to Connect 32 ST-2FODVI-LC DVI Extenders to the DVI Matrix Switch Outputs and Eliminate All Local Unit Power Supplies

    The SM-32X32-DVI-LCD-5V16A features internal power supplies that provide 5VDC power to all outputs on the matrix switch. This enables the switch to power all connected ST-2FODVI-LC local units, eliminating the need to connect a power supply to each local unit. Instead, only one power supply at each remote unit is required. Up to 32 ST-2FODVI-LC extenders can be connected to the matrix switch to extend DVI signals up to 4,920 feet away.

  • "We are very happy with the purchase of the SM-32X32-DVI-LCD matrix switch. We are currently using it to route 12 different inputs to 19 different outputs. The web portal really makes setting up how the different inputs get mapped really easy."

  • "I have ordered and installed a couple of the SM-8X8-DVI-LCD video matrix switches now. In both project cases, the schools felt the product was a great fit for classroom training because they needed to show different functions to discuss, such as Radar, Conning, ECDIS, Power Point Presentations, etc. The VEEMUX video matrix switch made it easy for the instructor and lab lecturer to discuss different topics."
