The UT260-052 switcher has 5 HDMI video inputs that can be routed to 2 outputs. In addition to the 5 external inputs, there is a sixth internal media player input available to play MPEG files from a USB stick as a screensaver or logo presentation. Each of the five inputs is paired with an LED to indicate the presence of a signal. Input selection is supported through any of the following: ShareTime controllers, TCP/IP commands using a third-party controller, Altinex tabletop units with display select (Show Me) support, and automatic switching to the last input connected.
TV power and input selection is controlled through the use of CEC commands from the switcher. At power up or upon waking up the system, the switcher turns on the TVs and then sets the TV inputs to those connected to the switcher outputs. The entire system is ready to go in only a few seconds; no TV remote controls are necessary. The TVs must be CEC compatible with the CEC option enabled.
Additionally, the switcher can be used with the Altinex Digital Scaler VP500-102. The switcher provides power for the scaler using standard minimum 28AWG 3 ft. HDMI cable; no external scaler power required. The scaler can be used to drive a constant resolution to a display preventing annoying on screen messages such as loss of signal or input resolution changes.
