FREE Shipping on orders over $100

The VS-44HDxl is a high-performance matrix switcher for 3G HD-SDI and HD-SDI dual link video signals. The unit can switch any or all inputs to any or all outputs. Switching is implemented during the vertical interval period according to the SMPTE RP-168 standard, when using synchronized digital video sources.

Features & Benefits

  • HDTV Compatible.
  • Max. Data Rate - 3Gbps.
  • Multi-Standard Operation - SDI (SMPTE 259M/344M), HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M), 3G HD-SDI (SMPTE 424M), and dual link HD-SDI (SMPTE 372M).
  • Kramer Equalization & re-Klocking Technology - Rebuilds the digital signal to travel longer distances.
  • Switching Synchronization - Synchronizes either to external reference or incoming video.
  • Active Input Type Reporting - Each input button on the front panel automatically lights up when the unit detects a video signal on that input. Green indicates a standard definition (SDI) input signal and blue indicates a high-definition (HD-SDI) input signal.
