8 x 8 and 16 x 16 matrix HD video switching that’s controlled via RS-232 commands, remotely over an IP connection, or via the front panel

BLACK BOX® VGA Matrix Switches are capable of independently displaying any of the 8 or 16 inputs in any combination to give you 8 or 16 video outputs with front panel, serial, or IP control. Designed for cross-point switching of PC VGA or HD YPbPr video, the switches output PC resolutions up to 1900 x 1200 and HD video up to 1080i. To switch, just send RS-232 commands or press the front-panel buttons. For easy recall, the switches store preset routing patterns and can be programmed to switch between preset patterns at specific times of the day—which is great for automating output to digital signage.
