The RS series switchers accept up to sixteen composite, Y/C, or HD component video sources, sixteen balanced or unbalanced stereo audio sources, and connect any one of the input sources to one or more of up to sixteen outputs. Control of the switchers is accomplished via RS232 or the intuitive front panel control. The switchers are housed in an ultra-thin chassis, greatly reducing the depth needed and thus easing cable management challenges.
The Knox RS8x8HB is a high performance audio/video routing switcher in a thin profile 3-unit rackmount chassis. It accepts and routes almost any 1 volt Composite, Y/C, or component video input including off-the-air and non-timebase corrected signals. The RS8x8HB accepts and routes mono or stereo unbalanced audio up to 2 volts p-p or balanced stereo audio from 0 to +18 dbm. Video and audio inputs can be routed independently; they need not have the same destinations. Easy manual operation by front panel push buttons, or send routing commands from a terminal or computer to RS232 interface. The simple ASCII protocol is compatible with most third-party controllers.
Optional Knox control and scheduling software are also available. Battery backed-up memory stores up to eight different studio
patterns. Internal timer allows timed sequence of patterns for surveillance applications.
