Matrix Switch XD1616S Overview

The 16 x 16 3G-SDI Video Routing Switcher from Matrix Switch has 16 inputs and 16 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 pass all SDI embedded audio/ancillary data. The switcher supports output mute. Switch 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.

The routing switcher features several options for control and system integration. A 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, AUX GPIO, 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 switcher features a panel with status lights.
