INTRODUCTION
The HDM-MX-2414C 4x4 HDMI Deep Color & full 3D over single Cat.X matrix provides the most
flexible and cost effective solution in the market to route high definition video sources plus multi-channel
(up to 7.1-channel) digital audio from any of the four HDMI sources to the remote displays at the same
time. Through only one low cost Cat-5/5e/6 LAN cable, not only high quality video and audio can be
transmitted to the display sites, but also users can switch among four HDMI sources using the pushin button or remote control. Furthermore, the built-in IR extension function makes users at display site
access the DVD player, PS3 or any HDMI supported devices directly!
FEATURES
● Support HDMI Deep Color & full 3D
● HDCP compliant
● Allows any source to be displayed on multiple displays at the same time
● Allows any HDMI display to view any HDMI source at any time
● Supports 7.1 channel digital audio
● Supports default HDMI EDID and learns the EDID of displays
● Bi-directional IR path
● The matrix master can switch every output channels to any HDMI inputs by push-in button, IR
remote control, RS-232 control
● Allows controlling local HDMI sources such as DVD and TiVo by attached IR extender from remote
receiver to matrix master
● Extends video signal up to 35m (115 feet) over single CAT.X at 1080p and likely longer with better
HDMI source device (such as PS3), better grade HDMI display (such as Sony X-series HDTV), and
better quality solid CAT6 cable
● Easy installation with rack-mounting and wall-mounting designs for master and receiver respectively
● Fast response time – 2~5 seconds for channel switch

EDID LEARNING
The EDID learning function is only necessary whenever you encounter any display on the HDMI
output port that cannot play audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source devices and displays
may have various level of capability in playing audio and video, the general principle is that the source
device will output the lowest standards in audio format and video resolutions to be commonly acceptable
among all HDMI displays. In this case, a 720p stereo HDMI signal output would be probably the safest
choice. Nevertheless, the user can force the matrix to learn the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display
among others to make sure all displays are capable to play the HDMI signals normally.
There are THREE methods to do EDID Learning as below,
1. Front Panel Push-in Button: Please refer to the Operation Approach\
Method A: Push-in Button
2. IR Remote Control: Please refer to the Operation Approach\
Method B: IR Remote Control
3. Software Control: Please refer to the Operation Approach\
Method C: Software Control through RS-232 port
There are eight embedded default EDID as below,
1. Full-HD([email protected])-24bit 2D & 2ch
2. Full-HD([email protected])-24bit 2D & 7.1ch
3. Full-HD([email protected])-24bit 3D & 2ch
4. Full-HD([email protected])-24bit 3D & 7.1ch
5. HD([email protected])([email protected])-24bit 2D & 2ch

FAQ
Q The quality of output video is not good enough, how can I do?
A Please adjust the 8-level equalization on the receiver units. The HDMI signal level varies from 0
(strongest) to 7 (weakest) for respective transmission length from longest possible range to short
distance. It is recommended to switch from 7 to 0 to find the optimal visual experience.
Q Can I use any kind of LAN cable?
A Please check the NOTICE section for more information about how to pick up a suitable cable.
Q Can every TV work with the HDMI matrix?
A Basically, the answer is YES. But if your TV
LEARNING section to learn EDID from your TV.
can not support 1080p, please refer the EDID
Q What is EDID? Why do I need to learn EDID?
A EDID contains the whole information of the display such as the resolution and audio setting
which this display can support. Therefore, based on the EDID information, media player will pick
up the most suitable resolution and audio setting to the display. In order to faithfully transmit the
EDID information from display to the media player, learning EDID from display to this device is
necessary.
Q What should I do to learn EDID for the matrix?
A Due to the limitation of HDMI, the source device can only output one format of video and audio. In
other words, the source device cannot output 720p and 1080p video at the same time, or output
stereo and surround sound at the same time. Therefore, you may need to manually setup the
DIP switch for each HDMI input for desirable audio/video output format. The mechanism of EDID
Learning is to pick up the HDMI display with the lowest capability among the ones you would use
for this input source. For example, if user would like to play the Input-2 upon output-2, output-3
and output-4, and only output-3 cannot support 1080p [support up to 720p only], please learn the
EDID from the display connected to the output-3 at the Input-2 port. Of course, if outpt-3 would
get the HDMI signals from every HDMI input, please learn EDID information from output3 to all
four HDMI inputs. For more information about EDID Learning, please refer to EDID LEARNING
section.
20
Q My TV can support 1080p, but why there is no audio?
A The default setting of this device is 1080p & 7.1ch audio, so there would be a problem if the TV
cannot support 7.1ch audio. Please change the DIP switch of the chosen input from Default Mode
to Safe Mode.
Q When I set an audio amplifier (AV receiver) between TV and the matrix to extract 7.1ch
audio, but why there is still no audio?
A Basically, the default DIP switch setting of the chosen input can support 7.1ch audio, but the
problem is that the EDID of the amplifier still cannot match the default setting. Therefore, the best
method is to learn EDID from the amplifier directly. Please refer to EDID LEARNING section and
follow the steps to learn the EDID. When learning EDID from the amplifier, user just needs to
connect the matrix and amplifier. Please don't connect HDMI cable between amplifier and TV
when the EDID learning is proceeding.
Q When I play the same content upon multi-displays, why only the TV equipped with amplifier
can have 7.1ch audio, and the others don't have 7.1ch audio even no stereo?
A Due to the limitation of HDMI, the source only can choose one video and one audio format to play,
which can be either 1080p and 7.1ch or 1080p and stereo audio. It means when the user sets the
matrix at 1080p and 7.1ch, the source will only play the content under this format. Therefore if the
TV cannot decode 7.1ch audio, there is definitely no audio.

NOTICE
1. If the DVI or HDMI device requires the EDID information, please use EDID Reader/Writer to retrieve
and provide DVI/HDMI EDID information.
2. All HDMI over CAT5 transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT5e 125MHz LAN
cable and ASTRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C & VG-870B.
3. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of DVI sources, and
the type of DVI display. The testing result shows solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable 300m/1000ft
form) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord form). Shielded
STP cables are better suited than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable shows longer
transmission range than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid LAN cables are
the only viable choice.
4. EIA/TIA-568-B termination (T568B) for LAN cables is recommended for better performance.
5. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in LAN cable, one can use
shielded LAN cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
6. Because the quality of the LAN cables has the major effect on how long the transmission limit can
achieve and how good is the received picture quality, the actual transmission range is subject to one’s
choice of LAN cables. For desired resolutions greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a Cat-6 cable is
recommended.
7. If your HDMI display has multiple HDMI inputs, it is found that the first HDMI input [HDMI input #1]
generally can produce better transmission performance among all HDMI inputs.
8. Additional IR remote controls and IR blasters can be purchased as optional accessories to control the
HDMI sources located separately.
