If you use an older AMX/Autopatch system now and it’s time to upgrade 9or replace it we have the perfect digital solution what will continue to use your existing wires and respond to the same code set as your original switch. This allows for simple drop in replacement and NO recoding or reprogramming of the control system (Crestron/AMX/Control4/Etc).
Mixed Signal Types
Our digital systems can accept HDMI/VGA/Component and audio in any combination, that is you can have mixed sources and destinations (any type signal on the inputs or outputs). The system will for instance have 1080p HDMI on source #1, 1080i Component on source 2 and Composite Video on source 3 and have a HDMI TV on Output 1, a standard Composite TV on Output 2 plus a VGA monitor on Output 3. With the previous described configuration you will be able to switch any of those sources to any of those destinations, the system will up-convert or down-convert the signals as needed.
The system uses either single COAX or Cat5/6 cables between both the source and the destination (to and from the switch). This is accomplished be using an active converter that converts your source signal to a common format and wire type, it is then ran to the switch From the switch you run similar cable and another format converter at the destination. You can have 300-600 feet of cable between the format converts and the switch (unlimited distance with extenders).
We use a custom programmed controller that will interface the new digital system to your older controls (or control system). We program it in a way that the new system will respond exactly the same as your original system therefore no reprogramming of the controls will be needed, you will operate the new system exactly the same as the original one. Should you need new controls we can provide either a Touch panel solution or a manual button type panel solution. For sports-bars and restaurants see our SB-Touch system on Sportsbar-TV.com.
