Most televisions only come with a couple of inputs, so if you want to attach a VCR, DVD player and cable box, something will have to be unplugged, which isn't exactly convenient. But with the 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher, you'll be able to add five additional audio or video inputs to your television, easily enough for your satellite dish, DVR, and game console! Choose from five different sources using the buttons on the switcher's front panel or with the included IR remote control. The ChannelPlus 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher can even be used to create a security system, so you can switch viewing among five video cameras (sold separately) protecting your home.
With five S-video/composite video inputs as well as five digital/analog audio inputs, the versatile 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher operates as a standalone unit or expansion video/audio switcher for home theater and music systems. Combine the 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher with the Multi-Room S-Video/Cat. 5 Distribution System (sold separately) for multi-source selection capabilities up to 1000 feet away.
This switcher can also be used in RS-232-based multi-unit installations systems. The remote control/RS-232 interface works with IR-based or computer-based systems. The 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher will even learn codes from any remote control for simple integration.
The 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher automatically searches all five video inputs to find an active video signal. Take advantage of this unit's video conversion with an active comb filer, for viewing S-video on composite or viewing composite video on S-video, thus eliminating the need for costly digital audio signal converters. In addition, digital audio signals are cross-converted to both coax and optical outputs.
The 5-Source Video/Audio Switcher will mount easily in your entertainment rack; rack ears are included. A front panel input is also included for easy connection of a video camera or game console.
