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 for use
as a screensaver or for 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 – thus preventing annoying on-screen
messages such as loss of signal or input resolution changes.
