I've read through some threads trying to understand "bandwidth" (340 MHz/10.2gbps v 225 MHz/6.75 Gbps). Long story short..
Firstly, thank god i've had almost a year while my new house is under construction to consider hdmi matrices. This thing is so complex/confusing. I was initially convinced I would do the octava 4xN matrix with hdbaset lite built in. Then I decided, I really want to be able to pass LAN over that same category cable, so now the octava unit is out.
I'm back to where I started, which is looking at pure hdmi matrices + hdbaset baluns with the "5play" of poe, rs232, hdmi, ir, ethernet. As I look as matrices, I now notice that the MAJORITY of the models are 225MHz/6.75gbps. A few are 340MHz/10.2gbps, and those are more expensive. However, in my mind, if I'm going to spend $4000 on this stuff, I don't mind paying an extra $1000 if the extra $1000 is worth it.
So my question is, what's the big difference in those "bandwidth" numbers? Keep in mind I am a user who will 99.999% only be using the matrix for directv and apple tv. I don't ever watch blurays nor have a projector nor do I do surround sound, 7.1 or any of those audio things either.
Also, does anybody have experience with NTI (network technologies inc) or kanexpro?
