The Hall Research HSM-I-04-04 is a 4x4 HDMI matrix switch with RS232 and IP control. Supports HDCP, deep color, multi-channel digital audio (up to 7.1 channels), and may be used with any combination of DVI (PC) or HDMI (HDTV) sources and displays.
This device uses Silicon Image chipsets capable of color depth conversion independently for each output. This assures that the highest numbers of colors possible are displayed on each output. In other words if some outputs are connected to displays that only support HDMI 1.2 and others to 1.3, the unit will report as supporting HDMI 1.3 to each input source in order to receive the deepest color depth possible.
EDID management, fast switching, low profile (only 1 RU), PRESET Save and Recall functions, IR remote, and comprehensive front panel controls, make the Genesis Digital matrices ideal for home theater, conference room, multimedia presentation systems, and other similar settings.
IP Control From any PC or Smart Phone
Control and manage your video switch from anywhere in the building using your iphone or Android phone. The IP (LAN) port includes a Smart built-in web server with software to control the switch from any modern browser. The embedded HSM IP Manager first reads the display area of your browser and then renders the webpage optimized for the device without the need to install an app. Just use a shortcut to the IP address and you will not only be able to make ties or recall presets, but can also assign custom names for each input, output, and preset pattern. It supports multiple simultaneous users from any device including PC, smart phone, or tablet.

The HSM IP Manager Simulator allows you to try the software and see the features and navigation with some limited functionality. Try the simulator by scanning the QR Code with your smart phone or click here.
Control all aspects of the Matrix (entire Serial Command Structure) via Telnet connection on the network. The telnet feature can be turned on or off via the built-in webpage, and furthermore, password log in can also be turned on or off.
