Product Description

Built with performance, flexibility, and empowering in mind, Global Connect's design is based on open systems to work with any control software or hardware, delivering a simple cost-effective way to extend the reach of any control system. Global Connect is the next generation for IP connectivity and control. The Global Connect is comprised of three elements: the chassis, the number of slots per chassis, and installed modules. The Global Caché Global Connect, GC5 with PoE, HDMI Switch, Serial includes 3 HDMI inputs and an RS232 serial port with PoE connectivity.

3 Input: 1 Output HDMI Switch:

  • Switches between 3 sources and 1 output at resolutions up to UHD 4K at 60Hz
  • Detects the On/Off/Standby status of connected HDMI devices
  • Includes HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronic Control) which provides easy command and control of devices connected through HDMI
  • Supports HDCP 2.2 (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) devices

Bi-directional Serial RS232:
