The SmartAVI SmartNet-V SNV16X04 is a Composite Video/Audio/IR over CAT5 16x04 matrix video switch with RS422 control.  The SmartAVI SmartNet-V series of products provide a unique combination of high quality video and stereo audio matrix, remote infrared control with pass-through and signal distribution via CAT5 cable. The SNV16X04 video switch comes with a small discrete receiver unit providing a high quality signal conversion from the CAT5 cable to the television, computer or other display device.

The SNV16X04 allows the extension of infrared control signals via a single category 5 twisted pair cable. Using a unique method of transparent data transfer, the system allows a device (e.g. set-top box) to be situated up to 1000ft (300m) from the controller (e.g. television).  Fully compliant with standard modulated IR and the latest IRDA, the extender will provide a transparent path for all protocols and data transfers.

This 16x04 video switch contains a high quality routing matrix for composite video and stereo audio. Gold RCA jacks sockets on the rear of the unit connect the input signals to the matrix. Color coded jacks are used for ease of identification. Both audio and video inputs are high impedance to allow for looping inputs. This enables multiple units to be cascaded together increasing the number of users to the system. Each model in the series has looping inputs giving a convenient method of upgrading the system on site. An integral on screen display (OSD) for each output keeps the user informed of channel identification and system configuration.
Note: Each user requires a receiver unit complete with IR 'eye' and handset.
