Product Description

The PU-8H8HBTE 8x8 HDBaseT Matrix is CYP’s flagship solution for full HDBaseT 5-Play convergence incl. LAN Servicing.

The CYP PU-8H8HBTE allows full switching and distribution of up to 8 HDMI sources, LAN (Local Area Network), RS-232, 2-way Infrared and Power-over-Cable, transmitting signals over distances of up to 100 metres using standard Cat5e/6 cable infrastructure.

This high performance single-box solution enables the AV installer to confidently integrate up to 8 zones in multi-room, multiple input AV systems. The PU-8H8HBTE is designed to be used with the CYP PU-507RX Receiver which can make full use of the Power-over-Cable capabilities of the Matrix.

In addition, the new PU-8H8HBTE Matrix offers LAN serving capabilities to provide internet connectivity to each of the 8 zones. The CYP 8x8 Matrix also features IP control allowing users to access and control the Matrix remotely and will also support additional options for third-party control systems including Control 4, Crestron, AMX, Control FX and RTI. (CYP provide control drivers for all these systems at no extra cost).

The PU8H8HBTE is the first HDMI Matrix available in Europe which can boast complete, true 5Play convergence of the HDBaseT platform. For the first time, installers and integrators can confidently distribute and control HDMI and a multitude of signals via a single Cat5e/6 cable infrastructure over distances of up to 100 metres.

Introducing Ethernet and IP Control:
The CYP PU-8H8HBTE Matrix also features an integrated Ethernet switch and dedicated IP control via PC or smartphone / tablet device. The two-way Ethernet switch allows an installer to insert a LAN connection at either the Matrix end or into any of the Receivers. No matter where the LAN connection is made, the Matrix and all Receivers will be enabled to carry full 100BaseT internet connection through the Matrix network. This feature can be of huge benefit particulalry in large system situations where WiFi signals may be low or unavailable or where users require dedicated internet connections for smart TVs.

The IP functionality of the PU-8H8HBTE Matrix has been designed for complete simplicity. Without the need for any driver software, the Matrix is simply assigned a static IP address on the network and then accessed via any browser connected to the same network. This can be controlled via PC or handheld devices such as iPhone, iPad, smartphones or tablet PCs.

This IP functionality can be hugely beneficial not only for the end-user themselves, but also to allow remote access for future maintenance by the AV integrator.
