Slotting in neatly between our existing SW-0201-4K and the SW-0501-HDBT presentation switchers, the SW-0401-HDBT is a scaling, multi-format 4-to-1 switcher for huddle rooms and meeting spaces featuring VGA + stereo audio, DisplayPort and dual HDMI Inputs to a single Class A HDBaseT and mirrored HDMI Outputs.



While the SW-0401-HDBT can be switched manually, it also has the ability to automatically switch between VGA, DisplayPort and two HDMI inputs using the “First-In, Last-Out” rule, making switching as seamless as possible.



With CEC capable displays, CEC can be triggered from source detection or with use of the front panel CEC control, allowing the user to power on and off displays through the HDMI cable with a touch of a button.



Utilizing the power of Class A HDBaseT, the SW-0401-HDBT can transmit scaled 4K content, as well as PoH, Ethernet, audio and control signals over Cat6/6a cable at distances of up to 70m/230ft with the RX-70-4K. Same distances can be achieved with the RX-70-4K ARC, but with the benefit of audio break out at the receiver end.



Perfect for taking lower resolution content, such as from a PC/MAC source and scaling up to 4K@30Hz to both HDBaseT and mirrored HDMI outputs. Furthermore, balanced audio breakout allows connection to a local audio system.



  • 4-input smart presentation switch with dual, scaled outputs
  • Mirrored HDMI out with up to 4K@30Hz scaler and balanced audio output
  • Class A HDBaseT for transmission of 4K video, audio, Ethernet, power and control signals
  • Supporting transmissions distances of 4K/30Hz to 70m/230ft and 1080p to 100m/328ft
  • CEC controller built in to turn on/off sink device by auto-detecting source status
  • Automatically switches between VGA, DisplayPort and two HDMI inputs
  • 1x VGA+3.5mm stereo up to 1920×1200@60Hz, 1x DisplayPort and 2x HDMI inputs up to 3840×2160@30Hz
  • Mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs scales output to 4K
  • DIP switch provided to adjust automatic or manual switching mode
  • Rotary switch provided to adjust between auto-scaler and forced output resolutions
  • RS-232, front panel and CC control (+ LED) of switching
  • Contact closure points provided to switch sources or turn on/off sink device
  • Auto-switching based on power state and last connected source – switches to the latest source when all inputs are connected or any input disconnected
  • PoH HDBaseT output powers RX-70-4K or RX-70-4K-ARC receivers at screen or projector location
  • Active CEC technology ensures display devices are in correct power state depending if sources are being used
