HRT Intros 2RU 16x16 AV Matrix Switch

Publish date:

Hall Research Technologies, Inc. has introduced the compact 16x16 VGA/HDTV Matrix Switch with balanced pro-audio in a 2RU enclosure. The Model VSM-I-AP-16-16 is controlled via the front panel, serial RS-232, and IP ports. All AV and control connections are on the rear of the rack-mountable unit. Standard HD15 video connectors directly tie to PCs or LCD's and can also be used with YPbPr video signals.

This high-performance matrix is compatible with PC video to 1920x1600 or analog SD/HDTV Component Video from 480i to 1080p.

Stereo audio inputs may be routed to follow the video or switched independently. Balanced stereo outputs on screw terminals are provided that can be set to either standard line level of –10 dBV or professional level of +4 dBu.

Each audio input features a user programmable gain or attenuation stage with a range of +6 dB to –24 dB. This allows normalization of volume levels among all the sources so when outputs are switched between inputs with different audio levels, the signal remains at a constant volume. In addition, during the audio gain adjustment, the front panel LED's act as a precision VU bar level meter.

Built-in battery-backed clock/calendar and easy scheduling feature enables the matrix to recall various preset patterns at specified times throughout the day.

Other advanced innovations include self monitoring of temperature, power supply voltage levels, and battery status with warning lights if out of range parameters are detected. Simple but powerful ASCII command set is provided for easy remote control of the matrix from RS-232 serial port as well as the IP port.

The Model VSM-I-AP-16-16 is designed and manufactured at HRT's Tustin, California plant.
