Matrix Switch Corporation 'Configurable 1RU SDI Video Routing Switchers' offer factory configurable matrix I/O size configurations of 8x16, 16x8 and 16x16. These systems are 1RU in height and less than 6 inches deep, allowing for installation in space and weight limited situations.

An extra audio option provides audio routing capabilities in addition to the included embedded SDI audio routing support. This option is ordered as a separate 1RU device connected via a D25 straight through male to male cable. Either AES digital (MSC-DE1616) or analog stereo audio (MSC-AA1616) can be chosen.

The choice of a button control panel or status only panel provides an additional savings opportunity for applications that utilize a remote control panel or are only controlled via the webpage interface, telnet or RS-232 serial.
