RGB Spectrum Offers HDCP Compliance for Linx Switcher Line

RGB Spectrum, the world leader in videographic processing technology for control rooms, conference rooms, operating rooms and defense, today announced that all of its modular Linx Switchers are now HDCP compliant. This means that copy protected HDMI signals can be routed to multiple HDCP compliant display devices. Features include support for embedded audio, color space conversion as well as a graphic indication of which inputs are HDCP viewable in the switcher's web control panel.

Ease of set up and installation is further enhanced with advanced EDID management functions including easy capture, storage, import and export of files. For HDCP devices, the data required for authentication is cached in the switch, eliminating up to five seconds of pictureless time when the source or display are changed.

Linx switchers are available in three types: DVI/HDMI, CrossXFormat and the new Prime, also announced today, which includes the option for output cards with scalers that are also HDCP compliant. Upscale 720p to 1080p or downscale from 1080p to 720p. Frame sizes include 8x8, 16x16 and 32x32. With their modular architecture, a short loaded frame can be expanded over time with additional I/O cards. Cards and power supplies are user swappable and require no special tools for installation.
