VGA Matrix with cat5 DA
« on: August 01, 2011, 06:32:02 pm »

I've been poking my head around, and I'm looking at doing some upgrades for a current system.  I found these two products and I'm wondering if they are the same box inside.  They look the same on the outside, but different brands

It could be that they are the same box sold under two different brand names or that one is a copy of the other, unless someone has specific knowledge of any relationship between the two companies you'd probably have to pull both boxes apart to compare them.


Keep in mind that it is fairly common for manufacturers to have assemblies or entire products developed and/or manufactured under contract by someone else.  Some now fairly well known AV manufacturers started out developing and/or producing products or components for other manufacturers before offering their own products.
