FSR PS111A Overview

The FSR Compass 3.0 11 x 4 Presentation Switcher is designed for applications such as staging, rental markets, boardrooms, amphitheaters, and multi-purpose training rooms. The standard video inputs include two HDMI 4K, one HDMI, one DisplayPort 4K, one VGA, one Composite Video, one DVI-U (DVI / HDMI and VGA / RGBS / YPbPr), two 3G-SDI, one Genlock reference sync, and one HDBaseT. The standard video outputs include one 4K HDMI, one DVI/HDMI, one 3G-SDI, and one HDBaseT 4K.

The switcher offers audio de-embedded from HDMI. Audio is re-embedded onto HDMI outputs, and multiple outputs for local monitoring of a live output feed. The unit also features stereo analog audio inputs and outputs with audio-follow-video capability. There are two microphone inputs with phantom power available and internal mixer for talk-over. The internal power amplifier provides 2 x 15W RMS to directly drive loudspeakers in meeting rooms and smaller conference rooms, plus line-level balanced stereo outputs to drive an external amplifier or powered loudspeakers.
