The 1 RU 8 x 8 3G-SDI Video Routing Switcher from Matrix Switch has eight inputs and eight outputs. It provides re-clocking for standard 3G/HD/SD rates with automatic bypass for non-standard rates between 20 Mb/s and 3 Gb/s and passes all SDI embedded audio/ancillary data. The switcher supports output mute. Switching on vertical sync is provided with the sync reference input with a pass-through connector and provides support for tri-level sync and NTSC/PAL black burst signals. With dual BNCs per SDI output on this switcher, the need for additional distribution amplifiers is often eliminated.
The routing switcher provides several options for control and system integration. Built-in webpage interface offers a convenient method for control and configuration using a PC or mobile device (Interactive Demo). In addition to the MASCOT protocol, there is also support for some common 3rd party protocols.
Additional control interfaces on this router include USB, RS-485, RS-232, and TCP/IP over the Ethernet interface. Remote Panels can also be used with this router for remote control up to a virtually unlimited distance over TCP/IP. In addition, the built-in button panel provides an additional interface for directly changing the matrix routing state.
