The Apantac LX-8SD SD-SDI Multiviewer with Router consists of a built-in 16x8 SDI routing switcher, which accepts 8 HD-SDI inputs and displays any input to one ore more of the 16 available windows. Regardless of the output configuration, any input is switchable to 1 or more image windows. With single frame processing delay, it offers support for up to 16 channels of embedded audio per SDI input. The SCSI connectors on each input board can take in 16 channels of audio through a SCSI adapter (not included), which is 4 channels of discrete audio per input window. The multiviewer provides DVI, HDMI, and full 10-bit HDMI 1.3 outputs with a resolution of up to 2048 x 1080 (including 1080p). Optional accessories are available for converting CATx DVI/HDMI to VGA or SDI. The unit is also field upgradable, and allows discrete audio (AES/AA).

A built-in CATx transmitter extends the range up to 35' for 1080p resolution with a passive, short-distance receiver (included); or up to 115' with an active, long-distance receiver (not included). The Multiviewer includes analog and digital clocks for time of day and up/down counters, as well as LTC timecode and NTP for clock synchronization. It includes multiple labels, and with Apantac skin technology allows customizing borders, labels (4 / window), fonts, tally LEDS, clock faces, logos, UMD, OMD, IMD, and dynamic UMD.

With automatic input aspect ratio detection, it has a built-in video, audio alarm detections like no audio, audio high/low, no video, video black, video frozen, WSS/AFD. The LX-8SD Multiviewer comes with front panel buttons for quick preset recalls and a front panel headphone jack with volume control, and comes with a 1 RU size.
