VEEMUX SM-16x16-C5AV-LCD (Front & Back)

Features & Applications

The VEEMUX® Audio/Video Matrix Switch routes audio and video inputs from many video sources to multiple displays (projectors, monitors, etc.) and speakers via inexpensive Cat5/5e/6 UTP cable. It is capable of connecting to as many as 32 video sources via transmitters and 16 video displays via receivers with a maximum extension of 182 meters between the local and remote units.

A single computer audio/video output can be routed to one or more destinations. Each image will be as crisp and clear as if directly connect to the original source. Buffered video outputs and digital transmission of audio signals ensures integrity is maintained throughout the system.
  • Configure and control the switch though Ethernet, serial port or front panel buttons.
  • Video quality adjustment is done automatically at every connection change, or can be forced via the front panel or web interface.
  • Equipped with Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for front panel operation.
  • A digital VU-meter shows the audio levels of the selected output.
  • Each output provides one video signal and one stereo audio signal.
  • Each input can be independently connected to any or all outputs.
  • No loss of audio or video quality between the local and remote units.
  • 1RU or 2RU rackmount case is standard.
  • VGA and S-Video transmitters and receivers can be supported on the same VEEMUX unit.
    • VGA inputs only work with VGA outputs, and S-Video inputs only work with S-Video outputs.
