The DVM-HDBT-M-F16 provides ‘interrupt-free’ signal switching
The DVM-HDBT-M-F16 from Sommer Cable subsidiary Cardinal DVM is described as providing maximum modularity and flexibility with 16 slots for input and output cards, 12 of which can be used either as inputs or outputs and another four as outputs, meaning that all matrix combinations can be reached, from 1x15 to 12x4.
The system is said to provide ‘interrupt-free’ signal switching and offers different expansion cards: the three input cards with HDMI, VGA and HDBaseT interface feature a built-in scaler, EDID management and an analogue audio input. The two output cards with HDMI and HDBaseT interface are equipped with an extra analogue audio output by Sommer Cable. The HDBaseT cards also offer RS-232 and infrared interfaces and provide the intelligent PoH power supply to the transmitter or receiver. HDMI and HDBaseT interfaces support HDMI 2.0 signals with the HDCP 2.2 copy protection standard as well as resolutions up to 4K at 60fps. The VGA input card supports up to WUXGA signals at 60fps. The DVM-HDBT-M-F16 4K signal matrix is controlled via touchkeys on the device, via RS-232, with the supplied remote as well as through a web-based interface within the TCP/IP network.
