The Kramer VS-162V is a video only high performance 16x16 vertical interval matrix switcher for composite video signals using BNC connectors, but can be configured for other signal formats. It is a truematrix allowing any input to be routed to any or all outputs simultaneously. This is video ONLY, no audio.

Since the VS-162V switches during the vertical interval, transitions are glitch-free when sources share common reference sync. 15 non-volatile preset memory settings are provided for easy recall of common configurations. In addition to its typical 16x16 operation, the VS-162V can be configured as an 8x8 for S-Video (YC), 5x5 for YUV, or 4x4 for RGBS signals.

It is easily expandable to create larger switching systems. For example, two units combine to form a 16x32 system, etc. Also, multiple VS-162's can be operated in parallel for larger multi-channel systems. For example, two units can be used as a 16x16 for s-Video. Video bandwidth is 100 MHz. Control is by simple front panel buttons or RS-232 serial commands from touch screen systems, personal computer, or other dedicated serial controllers.

The VS-162AV adds balanced audio on terminal block connectors.
