S VD 5082 - 8>2 SDI Input Switch with Reference

The S VD 5082 provides 8>2 SDI input switching functionality for use in a variety of applications. The unit takes 8 SDI inputs and provides two switched SDI outputs. The unit can be configured for automatic switching to next available input when designated input is lost, or can be programmed to cycle through all inputs automatically. Manual switching is possible via the control system GUI or by using the RCP 5082 simple switching panels (or provide your own)


Reference input provides for "clean" switching in the vertical interval (line 6 for 625 and line 10 for 525). Each output can be configured as re-clocked or non re-clocked. In re-clocked mode the module will auto-detect standard video bit rates (143, 177, 270, 360 and 540Mbits/s) and transparently pass data from 10Mbits.s to 640Mbits/s when set to non re-clocked mode. ASI / DVB signals pass transparently in non re clocked mode.


Microprocessor control and on board flash ram enable configurations and settings to be stored within the module (through power cycles and module removal). Local control capability is provided via the integrated dip switch and multifunction switch. Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the LYNX control system.
