VMX-8 8x8 Modular Video Matrix Chassis

Quick Overview

The VMX-8 is a high-performance modular matrix switch chassis for professional distribution of up to eight video sources to eight displays. Various input and ouput cards allow the switch to be customized to the exact needs of any project.

With its flexible design, VMX-8 is the perfect solution for signal switching and distribution in commercial multimedia applications, such as conference rooms, control rooms, hotels, or retail spaces.

The VMX-8 enables cross-point switching from any input to any output, and supports high resolution video output at 4K. The HDBaseT outputs deliver HDMI video over a Cat5e/Cat6 cable to an VHR-1 HDBaseT receiver up to 130 feet (40 meters) away.

The VMX-8 can be controlled via IR, RS-232, Ethernet or via the front panel buttons.
