Targeting emergency applications, mobile production trucks, remote flyaway kits and corporate video production studios with limited space requirements, FOR-A is introducing the new Clean Switch CS-HD1602 routing switcher at NAB2004.
The Clean Switch can distribute HD signals with embedded audio in the 1RU frame. The 16x2 HD-SDI routing matrix architecture enables switching and signal distribution of HD digital video signals with eight channels of embedded audio, and can be used for both simple-cut switching and as a backup router in emergency situations.
HD signals supported include 1080i/59.94i and 60i; and 720p/59.94p and 720p/60p. Serial remote control functionality is provided via RS-232C or RS-422 (selectable) protocols. The CS-HD1602 routing switcher also includes processing to ensure noiseless audio switching; user-selectable Tri-sync, Black Burst or Composite Sync modes that can be used as reference signals; GPI input and Tally outputs; as well as (optional) redundant power supply and an enhanced remote control.
