Available now from IRT Electronics, the AVS-1210 10 x 1 video switcher is a self-contained, mains powered unit requiring one unit of rack mounting space.
These video switchers are capable of switching any one of its ten video inputs to its video output, which has two isolated feeds. Users can select the required input via a "D" type connector mounted on the rear panel, using a four or five bit code or optional ground per crosspoint connection.
The AVS-1210 video switcher can be fitted with a CPS-1210 10 x 1 or a CPS-1220 dual 10 x 1 (20 x 1) Control Panel, or remotely controlled using CPS-1050 10 x 1 or CPS-1052 20 x 1 remote control panels.
Users can link two of these AVS-1210 video switchers to provide 20 x 1 operation using either a CPS-1220 locally or CPS-1052 remotely. The inputs are high impedance loop through, which allows bridging of multiple switchers. Furthermore, two 75 Ohm outputs allow for a monitor connection in addition to the main output.
These video switchers are housed in an IRT one rack unit metal chassis, and the input and output circuit connections are by means of BNC connectors, accessible via the rear panel of the unit.
An internal AC mains powered regulated power supply provides the operating voltages for the switcher circuitry and a selector on the rear panel allows matching to local mains supply voltages.
Key features of these AVS-1210 video switchers include:
- 10 x 1 or two may be linked for 20 x 1 operation
- control system allows linking to audio, SDI and data
- supports multiple remote and local control panels
- user upgradeable from remote to local control.
