Overview

Easily route 4 video sources (Blu-Ray player, gaming console, etc.) to 4 displays. This is a great solution for home theaters, but it also works wonderfully for HDTV retail and show sites, information distribution, signage, data control centers, presentations, and more.



4x4 HDMI Matrix

The beauty of HDMI matrixes is that they can work either as a splitter or as a switch allowing you to send any combination of video sources to any combination of displays. IP control (along with RS-232 control as well) allows for easy control of the Matrix with an easy-to-use web interface.

Remote Control (Supports Logitech Harmony Remotes)

The Matrix does include a remote control but the real power of IR is unlocked with a Logitech Harmony Remote which can turn you into an entertainment master with absolute full control of your devices.

Easy-to-Use Web Interface (optional)

IP control/RS-232 control is an option that allows you to control the switching and splitting from a distance on a computer, but it also includes a few advanced features that give you a lot more control over the exact specs of the video you send to each individual HDTV, and can even enable faster switching.

EDID Management

EDID management becomes easy and straight-forward with a simple and intuitive web interface.

One of the most important reasons to manage EDID manually is to ensure that you are treating each HDTV connected to the Matrix uniquely. If you are splitting a single source on two displays that support different resolutions, timing, color, etc., most splitters/matrixes will send the lowest-common setting to all connected HDTVs because they are designed to mirror the same content on all screens. This is very undesireable if there is a large high-resolution screen and a low-resolution screen connected to the same splitter/matrix since you'll be getting the low-resolution specs on the high-resolution screen.

EDID management allows you to treat every HDTV uniquely by entering in the specs that you know they can support. The Spider Pro series also has an EDID learning feature that makes it so you don't always need to manual input the EDID information for each display. One of the advantages of manually inputing EDID info is to force certain resolutions, refresh rates, color specs, etc. if you know exactly what you want.

Faster Switching with EDID Storage

Once Spider Pro has learned your EDID settings, it can switch a few seconds faster since much of the EDID handshake is already accomplished.

Why would you want 4K@60Hz vs 4K@30Hz?

The Spider Pro 4x4 HDMI Matrix supports 4k@60Hz, as well as 1080p@144Hz. Watch this video to see the difference between 60Hz and 30Hz refresh rates.

A Nice Solution to My Problem

Pros: I withheld that 5th star because of my Con's. I like the unit and would recommend to others, but only if you are not afraid to tinker a bit with it. When it works it is good. I have a ChannelMaster DVR+, Roku Premiere +, Chromecast and a Sony BluRay player into the four inputs. My outputs are a Sony 4k XBR TV, a Samsung SyncMaster B2430 computer monitor, and a Samsung P2770HD TV Monitor. The TV monitor is using a WolfPack HDMI to Coax transmitter/receiver pair over about 60 feet of RG-6 I plan on connecting another Sony XBR 1080p TV to the fourth output. I have not decided how to do it, coax again, Cat5e, or direct HDMI. That run is also about 60 feet. The unit is well made and a nice size. There is nothing cheap about the construction. The screw lock on the power input connector is a great idea and saved me a few times, during setting up my system, from pulling the connector out. It makes cord-cutting and dealing with multiple sources to multiple outputs, a lot easier to manage. I have only had it a week or so and still figuring things out on my system and having fun.

Cons: The unit is very expensive for the average homeowner. The LED's are too bright, especially the blue one. IP address does not show up in Netgear Gear Genie list. The remote is rather "rinky-dink" for the price of the unit. Not the easiest device to work with either and the instruction on how to setup and use are poor at best. My biggest problem is the occasional loss of sync with the Roku device. When I "play with" the EDID button can get it to synch correctly. I say "play with" because I have not found any instructions telling me what I am doing when I hit the button.

Other: I hope Sewell continues to work on a more elegant User Interface in the home theater environment. Maybe even a smartphone app, Android first please.
