Shinybow SB-5588CT 8x8 HDTV Component Video w/ Digital and Stereo Audio Matrix Routing Switch w/ CAT5 Output

Description :

The SB-5588 CT is a true matrix routing switcher for Component Video (YPBPR)/Digital Audio (PCM) /Stereo Audio signals. The 8x8 Component Video + Digital/Analog Audio matrix switcher with RS-232 and Ethernet is designed to work as a switcher for multiple Audio/Video sources and displays. Capable of switching Component Video, SPDIF and Stereo Audio signals between (8) sources and (8) displays with compatible inputs. With a maximum bandwidth of 325MHz, this unit will support sharp and highly defined video in multiple resolutions of up to 1080p. Because Shinybow SB-5588CT is a matrix router, any input may be routed to any output; or the same input may be routed to all outputs or any combination. It completely eliminates the need to constantly move around audio and video input cables and output category (RJ-45) cables. This is useful for matrix signals from A/V source devices (such as: VCRs, Camcorders, Video Game Consoles, Video CD players, DVD players, Satellite Receivers, CAT5 Set Top Boxes, etc.) to AV destination devices over CAT5 cables (such as: LCD TV, Plasma TV Monitors, HDTV Sets, Video Projectors, etc.). RS-232 control allows the switcher to be controlled by a computerized system such as Hyper Terminal and in this case eliminates the need for an infrared remote control. Selection of inputs can be made via the front panel push buttons or an infrared remote control or RS-232 control by a computer. Also supports (1) set of Component & Digital/Analog Audio RCAs for a local monitor or troubleshooting. This output is the same signal as channel (1) Output.
