8x8 Cat 5 VGA/Audio Matrix Switch

Best Choice Award

The VanCryst™ Media Matrix Solution is a combination of the VM0808T 8 x 8 Cat 5 A/V Matrix Switch and the VE500 / VE300 A/V Over Cat 5 Extender. The VM0808T is a Matrix Switch that uses VE500/VE300 extenders to route and distribute audio, video, and RS-232 signals over distances of up to 300 meters with 1280x1024 video resolutions

The VM0808T can receive data from up to 8+1 audio/video sources and transmit data to up to 8+1 audio/video displays. The VM0808T offers several convenient ways to access and control the source devices: locally, with front panel pushbuttons and an RS-232/ RS-485/RS-422 serial port; and remotely, over the Internet with a browser-based web page interface.

The Media Matrix Solution is an ideal solution when long runs to the A/V output locations are required, and where versatility and security are essential. The VM0808T is designed for deployment in environments that involve routing video signals such as those found in casinos, transportation and logistics centers, traffic control centers, port security facilities, industrial supervision settings, etc.
