The PFD-4x2-PCA Pathfinder Computer Video & Audio Matrix Switcher from FSR is designed to offer 4 inputs and 2 outputs of matrix switching capability for computer video and stereo audio signals. Audio can be configured for follow or breakaway mode to allow separate video and audio source routing. It is well suited for use in video & control rooms, educational institutions, government offices, and houses of worship, among many other possible settings and applications.
The unit offers high bandwidth capacity to accommodate signals without degradation of clarity or color fidelity. The chassis has been optimized to maximize functionality while minimizing its footprint and the space it occupies in your rack or work area. The unit can be controlled via a set of ASCII commands using its RS-232 or via front-panel pushbuttons.
This matrix switcher is well suited for use in video & control rooms, educational institutions, government offices, and houses of worship, among many other possible settings and applications.
