    Matrix Switch MSC-HD42L reviews

    MSC-HD42L 4x2 Mini 3G/HD/SD-SDI Video Router Switch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the bill! This switcher is perfect for our broadcast studio. The four inputs and two outputs fit perfectly for our situation. Being able to mix SD and HD-SDI is very helpful. Switching in the vertical interval is great. Takes up almost no space for such a powerful device.
