The Magenta Research VG-Matrix 160-Port Fiber Optic Matrix Switcher delivers a modular and scalable full cross-point matrix switching platform that can be field configured in increments of 8 inputs and/or outputs up to a maximum of 160 x 160. Fiber I/O cards connect seamlessly to the fiber inputs or outputs of Voyager transmitters and receivers delivering matrix switching and long distance extension in one platform.
When fully populated, the 160 port Voyager VG-Matrix Switcher operates as a 160 x 160 in simplex mode. An optional, integrated touch-screen controller can also be factory installed in the VG-Matrix 160x Matrix Switcher for additional ease of use. The switch can also be controlled via Magenta's MaGUI software from a PC using an RS-232 port.
Full-matrix cross-point switching with Fiber I/O or Fiber I/O with HDCP
Modular and scalable from 8 x 8 to 160 x 160
Simplex mode configurations.
Switching and fiber extension in one platform
FiberMAX Engine for high-bandwidth multi-signal transmission from source to display over fiber
Uncompressed multi-format digital and analog video at 1920 x 1200 (HDMI, DVI, VGA, YUV, Y/C, Composite) determined by the connected VG-TX or VG-RX
Multi-format audio and RS-232 (unidirectional) determined by the connected VG-TX or VG-RX
Bidirectional RS-232 requires duplex fiber. Bidirectional RS-232 and audio is supported in 1:1 and 1:n distribution modes.
Auto format conversion between video and audio signal types
Distance range of up to 18.75MI/30KM determined on input and output
300m (50 um cable), 3300'/1 km (OM3 cable), 6600' /2 km (OM4 cable). The operating distances are approximate and base on typical distances. The maximum distance may vary due to fiber type, bandwidth, connector splicing, losses and dispersion.
Mixed single mode and multimode fiber support
Determined by receiver type. The attached receiver includes an extra MM or SM fiber module for the transmitter side fiber output.
Advanced EDID management and full HDCP compliance
Dual redundant, hot swappable power supplies with dual AC inputs
Optional touch screen control panel
Hot plug support
