28th November 2013 – CYP, the world’s leading manufacture of AV switches and audio accessories, has announced the launch of its most versatile range of HDBaseT matrix’s yet – the HDMI HDBaseT Modular Matrix with PoE.  Consisting of two models at launch – 16 HDMI input x 16 HDBaseT output PU-16HBT and 8 x 16 PU-8H16HBT – the range offers innovative technology to give installers and integrators unparalleled levels of performance and flexibility.  Able to send HDBaseT signals over lengths of up to 100m via CAT 5e/6/7 cable infrastructure, both models support 2-way IR (Infra Red), RS-232 and PoE (Power over Ethernet).
Pre-configured to work with the CYP PU-507RX or PU-507WPRX HDBaseT receivers, which are powered using the PoE feature from the matrix, both models are supplied with dual removable internal power supplies, allowing for easy inspection and maintenance with zero downtime.  In addition, each bank of eight HDMI inputs (2 x PU-16HBT and 1 x PU8H16HBT) and two banks of eight HDBaseT outputs are also easily exchangeable were maintenance or replacement required.  This innovative design means that installers can confidently create a sixteen-zone AV Multiroom system with the knowledge that any maintenance will result in minimum disruption for the user.
To aid set up and configuration, a DVI output for a local monitor is also included allowing installers to easily test all inputs and outputs, whilst IP control allows for remote access and integration into third party control systems such as DemoPad.
The PU-16HBT and PU-8H16HBT are available now.
