RGB Spectrum Expands CrossXFormat™ Switcher Line
April 22, 2009, Alameda, CA - RGB Spectrum expands the Linx™ family of Cross X Point™ routing switchers with the Linx 1700 16x16, the optimal switching solution for environments with both DVI and analog RGB sources.
Incorporating RGB Spectrum's CrossXFormat architecture, the Linx 1700 is a truly integrated switcher. Analog RGB inputs are internally converted, processed through the switcher and output as DVI. Perfect for facilities that are transitioning from analog video to DVI, or require continuing use of specialized equipment with analog RGB outputs, the Linx 1700 accepts any mix of RGB and DVI signals. Configurations include 8 or 16 inputs and 8 or 16 outputs. Custom configurations are available and smaller configurations are field upgradeable. Signals with pixel clock rates from 25Mhz to 165MHz are supported, including 1920x1200, 1920x1080p, and 2048x1080p.
Built-in HDCP support allows the Linx 1700 to accommodate content-protected DVI signals. An HDCP encoded signal can be routed to all 16 outputs simultaneously.
EDID management and control are simplified with RGB Spectrum's Total EDID Manager ™, which provides the user with the most complete set of EDID management tools available.
All Linx family switchers are designed with simplified system Integration in mind: Functions are easily set up and controlled using a command line interface or graphically via a standard web browser. Front panel controls provide quick access to call up presets or create a routing assignment. Built-in cable equalization extends input cable lengths without the need for external signal extenders. Output connectors can supply up to 8 amps of total power for pin-powered devices such as cables or extenders, obviating the need for external power supplies. The Linx 1700's modular architecture simplifies I/O card replacement should it ever be needed and the units feature a user-swappable power supply.
A Linx 1600 16x16 DVI model is also available for pure DVI switching.
Built on RGB Spectrum's long tradition of quality and reliability, the Linx 1600 and 1700 are designed for 24/7 operation. They provide an unmatched combination of performance, features, robust construction and ease of use ideally suited for mission critical applications.
