the HDS4.2, an HDTV audio and video switch. The HDS4.2 is capable
of switching four sources of component video, digital audio (coax
and optical), analog audio, and outputting to two component video
displays, all with the convenience of IR remote controllability,
and optional RS-232 control. It's flexible inputs and passive
switch contacts allow for switching of 5 wire video formats such as
VGA (RGBHV), as well as reverse operation (1 source to 4 outputs).
FEATURES - Zektor HDS4.2 Component Video Switch
4 Inputs, 2 Outputs Up to
four sources of HD component video, and two outputs. One output
is a passive pass-through, the second output is buffered with
high speed amplifiers capable of the full HD bandwidth. Video
performance at 37MHz is -0.1dB on the passive output, and
-0.1dB on the buffered output (avg. of all channels). -3dB
bandwidth is over 100MHz on both outputs.
Passive Switching Design. Video and analog audio signals
pass through Silver Alloy with Gold plating, relay contacts.
This passive design provides the same quality as a direct cable
bypass. All inactive inputs are 75 ohm terminated to reduce
cross talk, and to greatly reduce the possibility of spurious
noise pickup on any unused inputs. The passive design also
allows signals to be routed backwards through the switch,
allowing up to four display devices to be switched to one
source. (Note: Digital audio and the second video output are
Component Video, L/R Analog Audio, Digital Audio on Coax (SPDIF)
/ Optical Digital Audio (Toslink)
are available on each input.
New buttons allow direct
selection of desired input.
Optical (Toslink) and Coax (SPDIF) are both
automatically converted. When either input is active, both
signals are available on the outputs.
The Left and Right Analog Audio inputs use the same passive
design as the Component video inputs. This allows them
to also be used for high bandwidth signals such as RGBHV or VGA
(some adapters to RCA plugs would be needed).
Controllable using any Universal Remote. Control the HDS4.2
using any universal remote by selecting from a small list of
existing manufacturer command codes, or by teaching the HDS4.2
to use any unused buttons on your existing remote. There's no
need to use a learning remote control (though the HDS4.2 will
work fine with one); the HDS4.2 can be taught to use any unused
buttons on your existing remote control.
control not included.)
Remote Control interface allows: Power Toggle,
Bright/Dim/Auto Display Modes, Direct Channel Selection,
Channel Up, Channel Down and for better integration with
universal remotes with macro capabilities Power On, and Power
Off are also available.
Optional RS-232 - RS-232 can be factory or dealer
installed. Full bi-directional protocol allows for full control
and inquiry of current state.
Dimming Display. The LED indicator lights can be set to
Bright, Dim, or Auto mode. Auto mode will fade the LEDs to half
power after a channel is selected.
Size Metal Enclosure for better integration into your
system with machined aluminum front panel. (17"W x 6.5"D x
Available in Black or Silver.
Mountable, 1RU. (Rack mount ears available
in black only, sold separately.)
