  • Designed and manufactured in Lexington, Kentucky, USA



The AVAtrix™ provides component video connection of sources, and distributes HD signals up to 1,000 feet away to convenient wallplates mounted wherever televisions are to be located. Supporting component video up to 1080p, along with analog stereo audio, digital coaxial audio, and digital optical audio, the AVAtrix was the industry's first Cat 5 matrix, and still leads the category with a combination of performance, value, and unique features.

  • 6-in, 7-out matrix
  • System is expandable up to 36 remote Cat 5 Receiver outputs (order AVM-562E for 19-36 output systems)
  • Supports video up to 1080p
  • Extends video and audio up to 1,000 feet over Cat 5e/6 cable 
  • Rack mountable with included 2U rack-mount ears.

Important Configuration Note: This model has capacity for two expanders, such as Models 1176BK or 1173BK. For example, one 1173BK and one 1176BK, or two 1176BKs can be added to an AVM-562. For larger capacity requirements, use Model AVM-562E.

Key Features

  • Distributes video and audio over two Cat 5e/6 cables (or single Cat 5 options)
  • Expandable up to 36 remote Cat 5e/6 outputs

  • Capacitive touch front panel - no physical buttons to wear out
  • Integrates seamlessly with third-party control systems from Control4, URC, RTI, and more
  • Three Cat 5 Receiver options to match any installation scenario (also see single Cat 5 options)


  • Component video (YPbPr) - 6/7 (6 x Cat 5e/6, 1 x RCA)
  • Digital audio (coaxial and optical) - 6/7 (6 x Cat 5e/6, 1 x RCA)
  • Analog stereo audio (L/R) - 6/7 (6 x Cat 5e/6, 1 x RCA)

Control Interfaces

  • RS-232 Serial
  • Front panel IR receiver
  • Rear panel IR jack (3.5 mm jack)
  • IR input on each zone receiver (3.5 mm jack)
  • Front panel capacitive touch buttons and knob

IR Routing

The AVAtrix includes an IR routing system that is unique in the industry. The new AVM-562 offers individual IR outputs for each source. This routing system allows IR signals returned from a wallplate to control only the source currently routed to that zone. This design is vital for installations including multiple cable or satellite receivers of the same brand. The AVAtrix also includes a Main IR Output for all signals returned from the remote zones.

IR Routing is not a viable control method for all installations. Before planning to use the AVAtrix's IR routing system in your installation, contact our technical support personnel for more information.
