The SB-5688CAK is based on the HDBaseT™ standard and supports full resolution HDMI video with embedded EDID and PoH function (optional via the SB-5688CAP), Audio, RS-232, Ethernet and bi-directional IR, all over a single CATx cable. With a signal bandwidth of 340Mhz, there is no signal degradation. High definition digital signals can be selected and distributed to any (8) Inputs to (16) outputs simultaneously (channel outputs mirrored). The switcher is certified as being fully CEC, ARC and HDCP 2.0 compliant, full HD 4K2K HDMI V1.4a 3D formats, data rates up to 6.75 Gbps. Supports UXGA/WUXGA/DVI 1920x1200 resolution to any HD displays. The SB-5688CAK has 1x HDMI and auxiliary audio (analog stereo audio) connector for input, effectively making this an 8 in x16 out switcher (same signal on both outputs). Using IR remote the switcher’s HDBaseT™ Extender Transmitter (Tx) allows you to connect a source in a remote location. Likewise, the HDBaseT™ output and our HDBaseT™ Receiver allows you to connect a display in a remote location. The EDID management can be selected between (8) different modes. Control is provided via front panel push buttons, IR remote, RS-232 or TCP/IP (not a web-browser). A RS-232 Windows GUI interface is provided for matrix routing control (Windows only).
