RGB Spectrum Showcases New Linx Prime Matrix Switchers, Opto Fiber Optic Solutions at ISE 2014

RGB Spectrum will offer attendees of Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2014 an opportunity to learn more about the company’s new Linx Prime Matrix Switchers, which now feature audio de-embedding, HDBaseT and PoH capabilities.

RGB Spectrum’s Linx Prime Matrix Switchers supply the speed, processing power and flexibility required for today’s complex audio-visual installations. Offering users a mix of dual-channel modular input and output cards, Linx Prime switchers support a broad range of signal types over a variety of transmission media. Designed to accommodate any mix of copper, fiber, or twisted pair connections, Linx switchers are configured to accept digital and/or analog signals and distribute them for display within rooms, and across facilities and campuses.

Unlike conventional switchers that can only route like-to-like signals, RGB Spectrum’s proprietary CrossXFormat functionality allows the switchers to accept a combination of DVI, RGB and/or component signals. All of these inputs are output by the switcher as DVI/HDMI signals which can be single-link, dual-link, fiber, scaled, HDMI or HDBaseT, depending on the I/O cards installed.

RGB Spectrum’s Opto series of fiber optic based products includes enterprise level matrix switchers, transmit and receive modules and related accessories. Signal distribution via optical fiber offers a number of advantages over copper based transmission, including longer distances (up to 40 km), highly secure transmission, and no-compromise signal quality. Opto modules convert between original (native) copper sources – DVI, HDMI, RGB and 3G/HD-SDI – and single mode or multimode fiber. Optionally, dual-link DVI, audio and serial or network data can be combined with video and transmitted over a single fiber.

Unlike competitive fiber matrix switchers, Opto’s 6.22 GHz transmission bandwidth ensures that signals with high pixel clock rates up to 1920×1200 and 2048×1152 can be transmitted without the need for frame dropping or other artifact-causing compression schemes.

Three chassis sizes accommodate systems up to 320×320 simplex connections (160×160 duplex). Each configuration offers full flexibility – duplex and simplex connections as well as multimode and single mode fiber I/O may be mixed within a frame. Additional I/O cards can easily be added to a short loaded frame for system expansion. Controller and I/O cards, SFPs, fan assemblies and power supplies are all user-swappable and require no special tools for installation.

RGB Spectrum’s DVI and fiber optic matrix switchers offer an unprecedented level of power and versatility.  A full range of RGB Spectrum’s display and control management solutions will be showcased during ISE 2014, held February 4-6 in Amsterdam, at stand 3-C111.
