Route 1080p DVI between multiple sources and screens with matrix switches

Simplify the routing of high-resolution video between multiple sources and DVI display devices with new DVI-D Matrix Switches (XPT-DVI4X4, XPT-DVI4X8, XPT-DVI8X4, XPT-DVI8X8). Available in 4 x 4, 4 x 8, 8 x 4, and 8 x 8 matrix port configurations, these DVI single-link switches help you save time because they eliminate having to disconnect and reconnect different DVI video sources for output to LCDs, plasma screens, and projectors.

Any input can be directed to any output, making the switches ideal for point-to-point and multipoint applications. They’re particularly ideal for frequently rerouting source input for output to multiple digital signage screens. Switch ports electronically from a remote RS-232 console or from an Ethernet TCP/IP network, or manually using front-panel buttons.

These switches support resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz, including HDTV resolutions of 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. Deploy them for high-definition video switching in multimedia conference rooms, healthcare imaging applications, and command and control centers with a number of high-resolution monitors.

They can also be used with the newest panels featuring EDID capabilities, with each input port on devices supporting EDID emulation. Plus, they support HDCP feed-through in point-to-point applications.

What’s more, the switches also enable you to set up extended DVI cabling runs to source devices. A built-in equalizer preserves video quality on switch-to-source runs as long as 114.8 feet (35 m), for instance, from the switch to servers or media players backracked in a secure room.
