The PM Series is powerful, multi-platform signal switching and distribution system, combining the best elements of HDBaseT (long distance over a single CATx cable, POE, and bi-directional RS-232 / 422 control capabilities), along with Auto-Scaling and Seamless Switching technology. PM Series Switchers are configurable from 8x8 up to 256x256, and feature a modular, field-upgradeable design. Combined with PureLink??s advanced Cross-Platform technology, the PM Series provides integrators with a fully customizable solution for any application or network.
Cross-Platform Switching Technology
PureLink's advanced Cross-Platform Switching Technology allows interchangeable switching between any Input signal formats to any Output signal formats. PM Matrix Switcher supports HDMI v1.4, DVI, 3G/HD-SDI, VGA/Component, Fiber Optic & HDBaseT signal formats with various Input and Output selection.
Available in various I/O sizes from 4x4 to 256x256
PM series Matrix Switcher offers a wide range of Input/Output configuration to match various sized installations. Total eight size of main frames are available PM-8X (up to 8x8), PM-16X (up to 16x16), PM-32X (up to 32x32), PM-48X (up to 48x48), PM-64X (up to 64x64), PM-80X (up to 80x80), PM-128X (up to 128x128) and PM-256X (up to 256x256)
PM series Matrix Switcher provides power to the PM HDBaseT Extenders (Transmitter or Receiver) at the remote location over the same CATx cable that transmits Audio, Video, and Control. It eliminates the need of having a power on PM HDBaseT Extenders. Single CATx cable for Audio, Video, Control and Power makes installation simple.
An industry first, the PM series' RS-232 + simplifies the control issues that have traditionally complicated system design, RS-232 + enables a single serial cable connecting the controller to a PM series Matrix Switcher to also control the system on three separate levels:
1) PM series Matrix Switcher
2) PM series HDBaseT and Fiber Extenders (both Tx and Rx)
3) Devices attached to PM series Extenders (both Tx and Rx)
RS-232 + simplifies control within most systems, increasing reliability while also lowering costs by removing control design, hardware and cabling.
Auto-Scaling with Seamless Switching
The PM series offers auto scaling on both the Switcher and Extender Receiver sides, virtually eliminating latency while increasing system design flexibility. The PM series' HDMI Output Board (PM-HOS4S), DVI Output Board (PM-DOS4S), and 3G/HD-SDI Output Board (PM-SOS4) provides auto scaling for every PM series Matrix Switcher. The HDBaseT (PM-CR102) and Fiber (PM-FR102) Extender Receivers provide auto scaling directly driven by the PM series' Matrix Switcher HDBaseT and Fiber Output Boards.
Flexible Input/Output Switching with Auto Distribution
Each main port on the PM series DVI, HDBaseT, and Fiber I/O Boards also contains a parallel HDMI port, effectively doubling those Boards' I/O capacity.
On the Input Side, the user can choose either the main HDBaseT/DVI/Fiber port or the parallel HDMI port via the front panel or control command, providing a 2x1 switch within the Input and thereby double the amount of Inputs.
On the Output side, the main DVI, HDBaseT, and Fiber port and the parallel HDMI are driven simultaneously, providing a 1x2 distribution amplifier with a mirrored Output for each main Output.
Every Video port on the PM series Matrix Switcher I/O Boards also provides a 3.5mm Stereo Audio Input and Output, enabling easy extraction of 2-channel PCM Audio from HDMI or Audio from PM Extender Transmitter, as well as insertion of a separate 2-channel Audio signal onto HDMI, HDBaseT, and Fiber Outputs
Audio Attenuation and Muting
Every PM series Matrix Switcher allows volume attenuation and muting on the Audio Matrix Switcher's Output.
Test Pattern Generator
Every PM series Matrix Switcher provides a built-in Test Pattern Generator, enabling easy testing from the Matrix Switcher to the display.
Every PM series Matrix Switcher provides built-in comprehensive signal analysis of both incoming and outgoing signals, via the front panel LCD touch screen or control command. Signal information provided includes EDID, HDCP, transmission status, and resolution.
Every PM series Matrix Switcher provides an HDMI preview monitoring port, which further simplifies system testing by acting like an extra Video Output.
12.5 Gbps Data-Rate Frame
Ensures lossless High Definition digital AV signal switching and distribution.
Input Boards directly compatible with PM Extender Transmitters
PM HDBaseT/Fiber Input Boards can receive signal directly from PM HDBaseT/Fiber Extender Transmitter, eliminating the need of matching Receiver.
Output Boards directly compatible with PM Extenders Receivers
PM HDBaseT/Fiber Output Boards can send signal directly to PM HDBaseT/Fiber Extender Receiver, eliminating the need of matching Transmitter.
HDMI v1.4, 3D Support
Adopting latest HDMI version 1.4 enables to support 3D, 48-Bit Deep Color, 4K2K (Optional) resolution and 7.1 Channel Dolby TruHD & DTS MasterHD

LCD Touch-Screen Display w/ Security Lock-Out
Every PM series Matrix Switcher has front panel LCD Touch Screen for intuitive operation. Security Lock-Out feature prevents unauthorized user to access to the Matrix Switcher. In lock-out mode, a password entered from the touch screen or special command sent from controller can disable the lock-out mode.
Auto-EDID (EDID Library, Emulation)
PureLink's EDID library and emulation features failsafe EDID capture & storage to provide constant and continuous EDID for source devices.
