CIE-Group Adds New HDMI & VGA over HDBaseT Modular Matrix Solutions to range

Offering a complete range of 8 and 16 channel matrices for both HDMI - and now VGA - converged signal distribution.

CIE-Group is pleased to announce the launch of CYP's new Modular HDBaseT Matrix solutions - offering a complete range of 8 and 16 channel matrices for both HDMI - and now VGA - converged signal distribution.

Fully modular, the new CYP HDBaseT Matrices offer a wide range of pre-configured choices, including 16x16, 8x16 and 16x8 input/output variations with input modules for either HDMI or VGA sources (or, indeed, a mixture of both).

The new CYP PU Modular Matrices are also available as either full HDBaseT 5Play or HDBaseT Lite versions to provide professional AV integrators with unparalleled levels of control, flexibility and performance, giving them the confidence to undertake even the most complex multi-room, multi signal HD AV projects.

The full HDBaseT 5Play versions of the multi-format matrix provide complete control and distribution of up to 16 HDMI or VGA channels, plus 2-Way IR control, RS-232 integration, 100BaseT Ethernet and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) - transmitting all signals simultaneously over single Cat5e/6/7 cable to distances of up to 100 metres.

The HDBaseT Lite versions simultaneously transmit HDMI or VGA channels, plus 2-way IR and RS-232 signals to distances of up to 60 metres.

"CYP has always had integrators at the forefront of its mind when developing its products," says Chris Edwards, Marketing Director, CIE-Group. "The new 16-way HDMI HDBaseT Matrix features removable internal power supplies, allowing easy inspection and maintenance for minimal downtime. Users also benefit from the IP control functionality providing remote access and control of the matrix. And now for the first time, we can not only send HDMI via HDBaseT, but now we have the ability to send traditional VGA signals too; ideal for distribution of PC/laptop signals or pre-HDMI technology sources."
