Ever wished you could view full quality HDTV throughout your house without a closet full of equipment in every room?  CMX1616V integrates everything you need to distribute all your HDTV video and digital audio sources to all the displays throughout your home. 

CMX1616V is the most cost effective high performance matrix switch on the the market.  We support both HD component video and digital audio. If you need to add analog audio and composite video switching, pair this switch with CMX1616A.  If you need even more outputs, please see our product selection matrix.

Need more than 16 outputs?  Look at the options in our product selection matrix.

The CMX1616V has the following features

  1. 16 1080p component video input sets,
  2. 16 independently controllable 1080p component video output sets
  3. 14 digital audio input sets (8 coaxial, 6 TOSLINK)
  4. 14 independently controllable digital audio output set with transcoding (8 coaxial, 6 TOSLINK)
  5. Remote IR control with Zerokey code learning ability
  6. RS-232 input for serial control
  7. Flash based micro controller which allows firmware updates over the RS-232 port
  8. Professional quality video amps capable of driving cables up to 300'
  9. Designed and tested to pass all video signals up to and including 1080p
  10. Steel rack mountable case
  11. Optional rack mounting ears

Flexible control options

CMX1616V can be controlled by several methods, you can choose the one the best fits your home theater control scheme.

  1. Manual control using the front panel buttons
  2. IR control using a programmable remote.  You can download the Pronto codes needed here.  The raw Hex format is here.
  3. IR control using your standard remote.  Zerokey can learn any remote keys to control CMX1616V
  4. RS-232 control with a PC or your existing home theater controller.  RS-232 programming guide here

Video distribution

CMX1616V is the ideal amplifier for driving long video cables in your home.  Many vendors claim their products can do this, but very few can accomplish this without distortion of the video.  The most important amplifier design factors in driving long cables are source impedance matching, output connector quality, amplifier bandwidth, and amplifier current drive and slew rate.  Our amplifier uses the best components for all these, resulting in the best signal distribution you can get.  If you are interested in video distribution, please see our information page for more tips on optimizing your network for zero distortion.

ZeroKey technology

The remote control interface can use ZeroKey infrared code cloning to map any remote control key to each of the inputs & outputs.   ZeroKey technology is compatible with virtually all remote controls, and does not interfere with the normal operation of the remote.  Please see our quick start guide for a description of how to program for an IR remote using ZeroKey.

ZeroKey programming is stored in flash memory, and you will not need to reprogram even if you lose power.  If you buy a new remote in the future, don't worry, the CMX1616V can be reprogrammed as much as you like.
