What type of switcher do I need?
on Nov 2, 2017 at 7:39:04 pm

Hi Everyone, looking for some help. I'm working with a client and he has 7 TV's at his bar. There are 4 main screens in the main bar and the other 3 are spread around the venue. He needs to route his cable boxes to each TV, the main hub will be in the office space which is about a maximum of 175 feet from the farthest TV. He'll have a total of 4 cable boxes that he wants to connect.


Any help would be appreciated.

You don't need a conventional program switcher, the term you are looking for is a "router". Not in the computer sense, but a video routing switcher. Or if you're never going to change the setups, you could look at a combination of Video distribution amplifiers and a video patch bay, a sort of central connection point, where you have a rack-mounted device full of sockets and patch cables that send signals from one point in the rack to another. Searching for those terms on a site like B&H, Markertek, etc. should get you some ideas.
