Pulse Eight - The best in Matrices

Pulse Eight neo:6a

Gone are the days of a video matrix just switching video, Pulse-Eight systems are the heart and soul of the modern automated home, providing video instantly where it is needed and contextual feedback to the rest of the home automation system on what the user is doing.

Our flagship control technology – CEC, allows any TV supporting HDMI-CEC (of which pretty much all TVs now do) to send key presses from the original TV remote through the HDBaseT™ link and the neo:6a will route these messages to the connected source devices (i.e. your Sky box or Blu-Ray player).

Pulse Eight Cable Performance

The neo:6a builds on the success of the neo:8a with dedicated audio breakout from each HDMI source creating the perfect solution for extending into audio distribution and amplifier products. 

Supporting HDBaseT Class B, the neo:6a can extend 4K up to 40 meters (130 feet) and 1080p up to 70 meters (230 feet).

CEC – ULTIMATE SOURCE CONTROL

Imagine being able to control all of your devices (Sky, Blu-Ray Player, Apple TV etc) all from your original TV remote control… CEC control does just that. Gone are the days of 5 remote controls in one room and no need to buy any additional hardware such as universal remotes – you can do it all from your TV remote! Most TVs now support CEC and using our very own libCEC, we’ve baked that technology into the system. Now you can just use your normal TV remote and press the “Source” key, each of your input devices will be listed and just select the one you want and the matrix will route the video automatically, even if the source does not support CEC itself.

Contextual IR

8 in, 10 out and multiple possible combinations of your video. Historically matrixes have offered remotes with 8 or 16 buttons, requiring multiple presses to get video to the TV your watching. We thought this was an odd solution, given you already known which room you are in, so should the matrix! Our designers eliminated this old concept and created Contextual IR, this reduces the number of buttons to just 8 – one for each possible input. Whatever room your in, select the output number and watch that source instantly.

RESPONSIVE WEB INTERFACE

We want to give you the best experience possible, to do this, we think it’s important you can access the matrix from any device, be it mobile, tablet or desktop PC and in any browser. We’ve done this with our responsive design, so it works with you and not the other way round. Our web interface is built directly on top of our REST/API, this means that whatever you can do on your phone, you can get your control system to do also and vice versa. There are no hidden tricks or special codes that require a magic moon dance to work. All of our documentation is free and available on our monitoring site.

JUST ASK…

With the neo Alexa skill enabled on your Amazon Echo or Dot you can use commands to turn a certain TV on or off or to switch source devices. Imagine walking out of the lounge at night to continue watching TV in bed, you can simply say ‘Alexa, turn off lounge’ then ‘Alexa, turn on Sky Q in bedroom’ and without having to lift a finger the matrix will make your requests happen, including turning on the bedroom TV and switching to the input source with one command.

Remote Monitoring

It’s important that you get video all the time, to help us do that your system keeps in contact with our cloud management service. You can tell if this is working with the Monitored LED on the front of the matrix. If you get stuck, your installer or yourself can log into our cloud portal and see helpful diagnosis information (if you let them), fix problems remotely or tell you where you may have gone wrong in the installation. All of this is free of charge. If the matrix has a problem, we get alerted too and we can get in contact to arrange a hardware replacement or give you a step by step guide to get you up and running again.

Automatic discovery

Gotomymatrix.com

Reaching neo’s powerful web interface is easy, there is no app to install or configuration required. Just make sure neo is connected to the internet and when on the same local network as neo visit gotomymatrix.com Our intelligent routing technology will automatically redirect you to the web interface and select the right display for you

Instant On

In the UK, Sky (one of the main satellite TV providers) recently added CEC support, the way they did it was pretty interesting (simply press the “Sky” button and your TV turned on and so did the Sky+ HD box) and it gave us an idea, we could do this with neo. With Instant On, press the Sky button in any room and we will detect this, turn the TV on and switch the video path to the Sky+ HD box.

But we go one step further, if you have more than one Sky+ HD box connected to neo then we will intelligently detect which Sky+ HD box is not in use and route this to your TV
