Welcome to the Matrix - SOMMER CABLE presents their modular UHD signal management
Users can fall back on 16 slots for input and output cards, 12 of which can be used either as inputs or outputs and another 4 as outputs. Thus all matrix combinations can be realized from 1×15 to 12×4.
The CARDINAL DVM signal matrix with hot plug support offers the user maximum modularity and flexibility. Hence our solution is not only adaptable during operation, at the same time it also ensures a fully interrupt-free signal switching“, as SOMMER CABLE Key Account & Distribution Manager Peter Rieck points out.
For this system SOMMER CABLE offers different expansion cards: the three input cards with HDMI®, VGA and HDBaseT interface feature a built-in scaler, ample EDID management and an analog audio input. The two output cards with HDMI® and HDBaseT interface were equipped with an extra analog audio output by SOMMER CABLE. The HDBaseT cards also offer RS232 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@60fps. The VGA input card supports up to WUXGA signals at 60fps. Available is also a plain audio card with a microphone input.
The DVM-HDBT-M-F16 4K signal matrix is controlled via touchkeys on the device, via RS232, with the supplied remote as well as through a web-based interface within the TCP/IP network.
