Whole House Video Distribution System for a Residential Installation

Jay Schermerhorn from Loyalist Systems, referred by EECOL Electric, used KD-HD8x8Lite for an installation in Chilliwack, BC. The application called for seven flat-panel displays and one projector to view three satellite receivers and ad Apple TV at any time and in any combination. With the assistance of the Key Digital tech support, Loyalist Systems delivered an impressive centralized video distribution system that has generated already generated additional sales for the company with future expansion planned for the near future.

"As we were planning this residential renovation in Chilliwack, BC, we knew we had to do something clever with seven TVs and one projector sharing three satellite boxes and an Apple TV. Through due diligence and discussions up-front with Key Digital personnel it was decided we would implement the KD-HD8x8Lite as the 8x8XC was not quite ready for release when we needed to start the job. Being Video Matrix "virgins" we had no preconceived notions as to what to expect starting the system up. After viewing a couple of online training videos we boldly went where no Chilliwack technician had ever gone before! Simply following the instructions, we brought up the first three TVs with relative ease."

Jay from Loyalist Systems made a great choice when used Digital IQ Series KD-HD8x8Lite by Key Digital for this job. This 8 input to 8 output HDMI Matrix Switcher boasts support of 3D and 4K resolution, while offering unique Full Buffering Technology for HDCP and EDID. In addition, KD-HD8x8Lite has full support of IR and RS232 distribution to 8 different zones.

"It was the caring support of a couple of very good Key Digital employees who assisted tremendously by sending us additional "possible" Code Sets."

Thus far, the homeowners have been very pleased with their new control system tightly integrated with Key Digital managing their flat screens everywhere. They love the centralized head-end from the design discussions and love it even more with each device coming online as Loyalist Systems continue building the system out. The home theater space will be next with both a 50" Plasma and a projection system coming into play.
