For many years Matrix Switch has been building aviation hardened versions of its SDI and Analog Video switchers for a few select customers. This has become so popular, we now offer these systems as regular products to all defense and aviation contractors. These products fall into two groups:
Extra rugged 24VDC (18-75VDC) powered switchers with MIL spec power connectors, sold as complete systems and individual sub-components sold to aviation sub-contractors for integration into their own lightweight ruggedized chassis.
Visit our Aviation Routers section to see what routers we currently offer Aviation Hardened versions of and Contact Us if you are interested in an Aviation Hardened version of any of our other products.
These 12G-SDI routers offer support for 4K and UHD SDI formats and are backwards compatible with 6G, 3G, 1.5G and SD rates. So whether your project requires 6G or 12G rates or you want to future proof your SDI infrastructure, we've got you covered!
Early 2016 Matrix Switch Corporation began offering new and improved product models. In response to decreasing component costs and more powerful microcontrollers, we have created new products with increased control system performance and more compact designs, while maintaining, or in several cases decreasing, our already highly competitive list prices.
New control systems are based on a 32 bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor offering a Real Time Operating System (RTOS) and more resources for new firmware features. Models with this new improved control system begin with the model prefix "MSC-X" or "MSC-UX" and are referred to as Pyxis series systems. Click here to browse these new products.
While the new control system offers higher performance and more resources for additional features, our older models continue to stand the test of time, as being high quality reliable video and audio routers which are more than adequate for the majority of use cases.
All of our routing switchers now support the Sierra Video Systems serial control protocol. Contact Matrix Switch Corporation if your application requires support of another protocol or for system integration assistance with our products.
In 2008 Major League Baseball installed a Matrix Switch Corporation 1.5G 24x16 HD video switcher and 32x48 AES digital audio switcher in each of its 30 ballparks as part of its original robotically controlled Ballpark Cam system designed to enhance the baseball fan overall experience.
In 2014 Major League Baseball again selected Matrix Switch Corporation for its upgrade and expansion of the Ballpark Cam system to more cameras, full 3G 1080P and the installation of new Matrix Switch Corporation 32x32 3G-SDI digital video and 48x48 AES audio systems. Which was installed in 2015.
