This Matrix Controller is a powerful and flexible solution for controlling Gefen compatible Video and KVM over IP based extenders within same network. The user only needs to install this unit into the same local network as the extenders (transmitters and receivers) to easily define and configure channel routing selections(including video, audio and a variety of controller interface types), using the WebGUI. Either unicast or multicast scenarios can be configured via WebGUI. It is also possible to define and switch routes using customized groups or presets allowing for easy control over multiple video zones.
Without the use of this centralized unit, each transmitter and receiver in the system would need to be controlled and configured directly through their own individual WebGUIs. Additionally, this unit supports controlling the matrix and video wall modes of connected AVoIP units. The settings of all connected transmitter/receiver units, including IP address, netmask and extender status are clearly displayed within the WebGUI. The WebGUI is easily accessed via a web browser over a normal network connection or by directly connecting an HDMI display and USB keyboard & mouse to the unit. A standard HDMI plus USB touch screen display can also be used to interact with the local WebGUI and control the unit.
A trigger input interface is also provided to allow the easy addition of a remote control keypad, or other trigger-supporting products, which can be installed within a podium or within a table in a conference room or classroom. This interface can allow the user to activate stored presets with the simple press of a button. Standard control is available via WebGUI (remote or local), RS-232, Telnet, UDP and IR remote.
