Hall's Multi-Format Scaler Switch and Multiport HDMI-to-HDBaseT™ Extension Box

Choose From three selectable outputs including VGA, HDMI and HDBaseT

Tustin, CA. Model SC-12BT by Hall Research, www.hallresearch.com, is a 12 input, 3 output HD Scaler Switch. It accommodates 4 HDMI, 4 VGA, 2 CV, 1 S-Video and 1 YPbPr  inputs.  It has three selectable outputs VGA, HDMI and HDBaseT.

Inputs are selected by using front panel push-buttons, RS-232 or IP commands. The selected source is scaled to a fixed user-settable resolution and simultaneously output as: VGA, HDMI, and HDBaseT (for easy extension to 70m / 230 ft on a single UTP).

The HDMI audio is extracted, VGA and AV inputs have separate audio inputs. There are two auxiliary audio inputs (balanced mic and stereo line-level).  Audio controls are provided on the front panel. The overall audio is embedded in the HDMI and HDBaseT outputs and is also available on RCA jacks.

The UHBX-8X is a 1 RU box that converts 8 HDMI inputs to corresponding HDBaseT™ outputs for extension to 150 meters (500 ft) on single UTP. The extender supports HDCP, 3D, Deep Color, CEC, and 4K (UHD) resolution. Compatible receivers include the low-cost self-powered UH-1BT-R and UH-1BTX-R for HDMI extension to 230 ft or 330 ft respectively, or the UHBX-R-PD that supports RS-232, IR, PoH, and Long Reach modes to 500 ft. When using receivers with PoH function, a single optional 48v power supply is needed for the 8-channel sender.

The UHBX-8X provides both IP (Ethernet), and RS-232 ports for control. Using these ports the user can address and send RS-232 or IR commands to any of the receivers to control the remote display. 8 separate IR emitter ports are also provided on the rear of the UHBX-8X which can be used if a user connects IR detectors at each remote location. This would be perfect for controlling multiple sources in a rack with the UHBX-8X.

The extender is constructed as a 1RU rack-mountable unit and has a built-in power supply. LED indicators on the front panel show Link Status, HDCP status, Long Reach and Power for each of the 8 outputs.
