Matrix 12800 Series

Fully Configurable Matrix Switchers with IP Link® from 32x16 to 128x128

Common Features

Inputs: Video on female BNC connectors; audio on captive screw connectors

Outputs: Video on female BNC connectors; audio on captive screw connectors

375 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth, fully loaded (wideband models) — Ensures switching and distribution of signals without signal degradation. The 375 MHz (-3dB) rating is a worst case specification, i.e., the Matrix 12800 provides 375 MHz

(-3dB) at full performance capacity when one input signal drives all outputs.

150 MHz (-3 dB) video bandwidth, fully loaded (low resolution models) — For lower resolution video signals where high bandwidth is not required, such as composite video, S-video, and component video systems.

Compatible with composite video, S-video, component video, HDTV, RGsB, RGBS, RGBHV, and/or balanced/unbalanced mono or stereo audio

Field-upgradeable and hot swappable, modular design — The Matrix 12800 provides the highest level of flexibility, expandability, and affordability by allowing users to purchase only the modules required for their systems. Additional input and output cards may be added at any time through the front panel for easy and quick upgradeability or expansion. Hot swappable components allow the user to replace any part at any time—no need to power down the switcher. This is especially useful for crucial applications that require continuous operation of the Matrix 12800.

Advanced computer-aided diagnostics — Provides 24-hour self-diagnostics of input/output boards, primary and redundant power supply voltages, controllers, cooling status, and overall functional status of the matrix. Using a RS-232 or RS-422 communications port, status monitoring is possible for off-site or unmanned locations, such as telco, government, military, or any other sensitive, 24 hours a day, 7 days

a week environments.

Triple-Action Switchingfor RGB Delay — The Matrix 12800 is capable of programmable RGB delay on every output. RGB delay blanks the screen when the matrix switcher switches to a new source. The new sync signals precede the RGB signals, so there is no glitch shown during the transition. The time delay between the RGB and sync signals is user adjustable up to five seconds.

Easy maintenance and serviceability for low meantime to repair — With the front panel allowing full accessibility to the internal workings and modular assemblies, the basic architecture of the matrix allows for easy maintenance and serviceability, as well as low mean-time to repair.

Dual, fully redundant, and hot swappable power supplies and cooling fans — Primary and back-up controllers, power supplies, and cooling fans provide added reliability for critical applications. The optional redundant controller provides mirrored memory, CPU and auto-failover capabilities, and a secondary RS-232 port, enabling a redundant third party control system to communicate with the matrix system. It also provides an increased level of reliability by adding an additional controller that assumes management of the matrix system if a primary controller failure should occur.

DSVP- Digital Sync Validation Processing — Extron's exclusive DSVP verifies active sources by scanning all inputs for active sync signals. DSVP then transmits the horizontal and vertical scan rate information to the user via any type of control system using RS-232 and RS-422 commands.

Excellent channel-to-channel isolation — The Matrix 12800 provides excellent isolation between channels and extremely low electromagnetic emissions perfect for minimizing signal leakage in high security or government environments.

Rooming and presets — The Matrix 12800 can be configured for several different applications without the need to change the settings each time the application changes.

Video interval switching — Enables smooth, seamless transitions when switching between inputs.

Two AC power inputs — For added power reliability, some 24-hour environments offer two separate AC power sources, one as the primary source and the second as a redundant one. The Matrix 12800 offers two AC power inputs for continuous connection to both power sources.

RS-232 and RS-422 serial control port — Using serial commands, the Matrix 12800 Series can be controlled and configured via the included Windows-based control software, or integrated into third-party control systems. Extron products use the SIS- Simple Instruction Set command protocol, a set of basic ASCII code commands that allow for quick and easy programming.

Extron virtualization/control software — For RS-232 and RS-422 remote control from a PC, Extron ships our Windows®;-based control software with every matrix switcher. This icon-driven software uses a graphical, drag-and-drop interface to make I/O configuration and other customization functions simple and convenient. This software also offers an emulation mode for configuration of an offsite matrix switcher; the I/O configuration may then be saved for future downloading to the matrix switcher.

Optional FPC 5000 LCD Front Panel Controller
Optional control panels and keypads —

Provide the flexibility to control a Matrix 12800 Series matrix switcher from a remote location.

Balanced or unbalanced audio — The Matrix 12800 switches both balanced or unbalanced mono or stereo audio signals. Depending on the application and cable distance requirements, some systems will require balanced audio.
