FSR unveils DVS-MFSW-94XT multi-format scaling matrix switcher
By Anthony Capkun
July 31, 2013 – FSR says its DVS-MFSW-94XT—a multi-format 9×4 scaling matrix switcher—reduces challenges associated with integrating legacy analogue gear with newly installed digital video products. The 94XT offers nine inputs: four HDMI with stereo audio; three HDMI via CatX cable; and two multi-format analogue inputs. On the output side, there are two HDMI outputs and two HDMI over CatX outputs—each scaled to match the resolution of the display. The 94XT incorporates intelligent EDID and HDCP management, says FSR, adding that the unit has two additional balanced stereo audio inputs, one unbalanced stereo audio output, and SPDIF outputs for each video output for additional flexibility. It can be controlled from the front panel, remotely via RS-232 or TCP/IP, or through the built-in web server.
