Model VS8x8

Video Switch - 8 In by 8 Out
Composite and S-video (Y/C) Versions, all with RS232 Control

The Burst Electronics VS8x8 Video Switch is a crosspoint matrix configuration under microprocessor control. The 8x8 design allows any of 8 inputs to be switched to any or all of the 8 outputs. Inputs and outputs are fully buffered giving a high degree of isolation (60 dB at 5 MHz) between channels.

The VS8x8 is a vertical interval switcher, requiring genlocked video sources for clean switching between inputs. The routing selection is either by front panel thumbwheel switches or RS-232 remote control.

Applications include broadcast, post production, small video studios, industrial and educational installations, surveillance cameras, clubs and sports bars. The flexibility of either front panel or RS-232 control allows for easy integration in manual and remote controlled systems.

Options available: Y/C, Rack mount
