  • Description


    Quick Facts

  • For cross-point switching of high-resolution VGA signals in any combination.
  • Send VGA signals along with audio to any or all outputs simultaneously.
  • Outputs PC resolutions up to 1920 x 1200.

  • Further Details

  • Control from the front panel, with its IR controller, or via an RS-232 link.
  • Includes 3.5-mm jacks for stereo audio inputs and stereo speaker outputs.
  • Ideal for corporate theaters, AV control rooms, studios, and digital signage.
  • Supports RGBHV switching for LCDs and plasma displays.
  • Excellent electrostatic discharge (ESD) rating; exceeds 4000 V.
  • Front-panel LED readout displays input/output status.
  • 2U-high rackmountable. Includes mounting ears.

  • The 8 x 8 VGA and Audio Matrix Switch provides fast video routing and versatility when controlling video and stereo audio output on VGA or RGBHV monitors or displays.

    Because it's a matrix switch, any input can be routed to any output, or the same input can be routed to all outputs or any combination. With it, there's no need to manually move input and output cables to display VGA video and play audio from different sources on different screens and speakers.

    The 8 x 8 VGA and Audio Matrix Switch is ideal for any application where multiple VGA monitors or HD panels with speakers must be linked to multiple sources and managed: corporate theaters, meeting rooms, classrooms, command and control rooms, and broadcast studios. When used with digital signage, the switch enables you to quickly switch a display from one digital signage source to another.

    Switching is easy. Switch using its 16 front-panel buttons, the included IR remote controller, or via an RS-232 connection to a PC running Windows® OS (control software included). Front-panel LEDs indicate the presence of a video signal on each channel.
