Matrix Switch Corporation now offers four sizes of HD / 3G switchers, specifically designed for use in 3D capture and production.

These HD (SMPTE 292) - SDI (SMPTE 259) serial digital video matrix routing switching systems employ the newest digital video automatic cable equalization and re-clocking technology.

Matrix Switch Corporation HD SDI matrix routing switchers employ a flexible and user friendly control system. In addition to a simple and logical RS232 ASCII protocol that is currently supported by a number of third party control companies, these HD-SDI switchers have other easy to use control ports. Each system has a built in web page. Unlike GUI software that must be loaded on a PC which may be OS dependent, have conflict issues or compromise system performance, the built in web page will run on any platform and with any web browser. In addition Matrix Switch Corporation offers a selection of remote control panels. These panels are TCP/IP Ethernet based, which give you the greatest flexibility in placement, quantity and how they will be networked.

The remote software update feature allows new software with new features to be easily re-loaded via the Ethernet port without the need to open up the system, use any special programming systems or development system software.

Because the optional remote control control panels are TCP/IP based there is no distance limit between the panels and the switcher electronics.

All Matrix Switch Corporation HD SDI switchers pass embedded audio.

Redundant power supplies are available for each of the systems shown above. Contact Matrix Switch Corporation for pricing information for this option.

SDI/HD/3G versions of the systems above are available as well. For SDI/HD/3G add $100 per input (in groups of 8) and $50 per output (also in groups of 8). Ex: The 3D SDI/HD/3G 16x16 price is $18,000.

The MSC-HD3D1616 and the MSC-HD3D3636 are modular systems with input and output increments of 4 per. Contact Matrix Switch Corporation for pricing of system sizes other than those shown above.
