Thanks, guys. The more research that I do, the more questions I have... Big surprise.
I read about HDBaseT, and like what I've read. My main concern at this point is a matrix switcher. I own a film/video production company but my familiarity with consumer video is limited. I'm used to dealing with HD-SDI, 4K and 2K video, and digital files but choosing a matrix that will work well with Bluray and satellite TV, while working well with Internet distribution leaves me a bit perplexed. The products that I've found thus far seem to do way too much (therefore having a steep price) or they don't do enough. Any recommendations on hardware that will suit my needs would be greatly appreciated.
As for control, I don't want to make a firm choice until the hardware issue is resolved, and it appears that there are a lot of good options out there to choose from.
