TecNec's Ocean Matrix Gear

TecNec Distributing today announced the availability of six new Ocean Matrix products.

The Ocean Matrix OMX-SW8X8 is a professional-grade 8x8 vertical interval matrix switcher for composite video and stereo audio signals. A true matrix, it allows the user to route any input to any or all outputs simultaneously.
Ocean Matrix's OMX-DA10XL is a state-of-the-art, broadcast-quality video/audio distribution amplifier featuring looping video and audio stereo inputs, splitting each to 10 outputs. A front-panel switch offers the choice of unbalanced stereo or balanced mono, and trimmers on the panel face allow for adjustment of the output audio and video levels, as well as video cable equalization.

The unique Ocean Matrix OMX-DA42 4x1 vertical interval switcher combines the functions of a composite video switcher and distribution amplifier, as each of the four inputs also operates as a 1x2 distribution amplifier. The OMX-DA42 is housed in a convenient desktop-sized enclosure, but it also can be mounted in a professional 19-inch rack using the RK-MEDN kit, which holds one unit in one vertical space of a standard rack.

The OMX-RGB2YUV is a multiple-standard converter that converts RGB video to component video, which in turn enables RGB video to be displayed on plasma monitors and other display devices equipped with component video inputs. Different sync variants on the RGB inputs are supported, the unit recognizes any sync polarity, and it is compatible with both video-level (0.3V) and TTL-level syncs.

The new Ocean Matrix eight-port FireWire switcher (OMX-8FWS) is a high-quality mechanical port switcher designed for applications requiring a compact desktop unit for routing FireWire signals, such as digital video and data, between any two of eight sources. Thus, users can activate a link between any pair of machines, switching inputs including high-speed signals up to 400 MB/sAn unpowered design is available for applications that otherwise would be subject to added regulatory and compliance issues.
