  • The Black Box® 2 x 8 Channel Video Matrix Switch combines video sharing and video splitter capabilities in one compact device! With one of these switches, you can share up to eight video display devices between two computers. Intelligent functionality gives you the flexibility to use a broad range of video devices, from CRT and LCD monitors to new plasma TVs or video projectors.

    The switch works with VGA, SVGA, XGA, and multisync monitors, supports monitors up to 1920 x 1440 resolution, and is VESA DDC (DDC1, DDC2, DDC2B) compliant.

    This matrix switch also provides 250-MHz bandwidth for video clarity and integrity when connecting multiple video sources to multiple screens.

    What's more, a built-in signal booster amplifies and extends video signals more than 200 feet—making the 2 x 8 Channel Video Matrix Switch great for remote display applications where you want to distribute images from a central secure room to public or non-secure areas.

    Cabling is easy. Just link an HD15 video cable between your computers' VGA cards and the "Video In" ports on the switch. Run a separate HD15 cable from the "Video Out" ports to the monitors or other display devices.

    Front-panel push buttons enable you to configure the switch to receive the image from either PC.

    To cascade switches for an expanded setup, run a video cable from the "Video Out" port of one switch to the "Video In" port of the second switch.

    The 2 x 8 Channel Video Matrix Switch is also ideal for multimedia control rooms or stations, test bench facilities, classrooms, or distributing media from the data center. It's the logical choice for any digital signage application, including retail PoS setups or content distribution in educational institutions or medical facilities.

    Lightweight and easy to set up, it can also be used by demonstrators at trade shows or conferences to disseminate and present graphically rich content on multiple screens viewed by visitors. Even better, its heavy-duty cases can withstand the rigors of temporary installations requiring quick setups and teardowns.
