New HDMI matrix from Smart-e

Ease of installation, its compact size, and user-friendly interface combined with a flexible input/output configuration means this matrix looks set to become a firm favourite.

Flexible input and output configurations is a major cost advantage of Smart-e's new HDMI AV distribution matrix. The SDNet MHD-16 is the AV designer and manufacturer's latest digital switching and distribution device to hit the market. The unit offers HDMI to HDMI switching for a wide range of applications from presentation and training applications through to multi-room entertainment and video conferencing.

The MHD-16 (Modular HDMI) is a compact 3U x 19" rack mounting unit and offers the opportunity for up to 16 input/outputs to be specified using dual I/O cards. As Jon Lane Smart-e's managing director says "With no pre-defined sizes, you decide your own input to output configuration, and we build it to match your exact requirements. This makes the matrix very economical as you only pay for what you want."

The SDNet MHD-16 is a professional quality HDMI AV switch and distribution system which allows the selection and transmission of up to 16 different HDMI inputs to up to 16 different HDMI outputs, at a total distance of up to 12 metres of HDMI cable (single cable). Providing quick and simultaneous switching, it conforms to the HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) standard and is compatible for all resolution up to 1920 x 1200 and 1080p including 3D. The SDNet MHD-16 works with all HDMI devices including Blu-ray players, satellite set-top boxes, PCs and laptops to LCDs, plasmas and projectors. Users can switch to any source locally via the internal front panel or remotely via an RS232 and TCP/IP connection. The inclusion of Smart-e's control protocol allows existing control systems to be utilised.

Ease of installation, its compact size, and user-friendly interface combined with a flexible input/output configuration means this matrix looks set to become a firm favourite. For more information contact Smart-e on tel: 01306 628264 or visit their website at
