The Gefen GEF-3GSDI-16416-PB simplifies the process of routing up to sixteen SDI input sources to any of sixteen SDI locations without losing quality or resolution. Each input source can be a device using SDI, HD-SDI, or 3G-SDI. The GefenPRO GEF-3GSDI-16416-PB 16x16 3GSDI Matrix provides a reliable and highly effective method of streamlining any installation using multiple sources and outputs. Each SDI source is accessible at all times from any location using the front-panel buttons, the included IR Remote Control unit, a built-in RS-232 interface, and IP control. The GefenPRO 16x16 3GSDI Matrix features dual power supplies to ensure uninterrupted 24/7 operation. If a failure should occur in one of the power supplies, the other power supply will take over to prevent a loss of power to the Matrix.

How It Works
The GefenPRO 16x16 3GSDI Matrix has 16 3G-SDI inputs and 16 3G-SDI outputs. Connect 16 sources to the 3G-SDI BNC input ports on the GefenPRO 16x16 3GSDI Matrix. Connect the GefenPRO 16x16 3GSDI Matrix outputs to each SDI location. Plug in the two power cords and power ON the GefenPRO 16x16 3GSDI Matrix. The SDI sources will be routed to the destination(s) according to the selection made.
