The Matrix Switch 8 x 1 3G/HD/SD-SDI Video Switcher/Scaler with AES Digital Audio accepts multiple HD and SDI video inputs across 8 ports and switches a source across Quad output ports. In addition, it supports digital AES3 audio via BNC connectors and extends support for DVB-ASI signals. Supporting data transfer rates from 19 Mbps to 2.97 Gbps, the switcher, using automatic cable loss compensation, transmits error-free signals up to 1000’ (304.8 m).

The 8 x 1 HD-SDI/SDI Video Routing Switcher with AES3 Audio features auto detection of standard SMPTE data rates which are re-clocked across each output for a jitter-free operation, and the auto rater detect logic bypasses all signals with non-SMPTE data rates. RS232 and an Ethernet remote control (not included) are used for controlling the switcher. It is suitable for use in broadcast studios, post-production facilities, ENG/OB applications, remote trucks, and flyaway video production cases.
