32x32 and 16x16 modular digital matrix A/V switches (chassis)
ATEN modular matrix solution series offers advanced access and real-time control of multiple local and remote A/V input devices and displays from a single chassis. ATEN modular matrix solution series allows users to independently switch and route video and/or audio content directly to various monitors, displays, projectors and/or speakers simply by pressing front panel push-buttons.
A built-in scaler encodes the video format in order to provide seamless, real-time switching. Operators can work from 4x4 up to 32 x 32 inputs and outputs simultaneously, as well as incorporate multiple digital video formats within the setup. It uses TMDS technology to support high speed data transfer at 1080p / 1920x1200 @ 60Hz / 4Kx2K @ 30Hz (4:4:4).
The front panel LCD shows a quick view of active port connections, with an option to select an EDID mode that yields the best resolution across different monitors.
ATEN modular matrix solution series is easily expandable and accommodates a lineup of hot-swappable ATEN I/O boards. Equipped with automatic signal conversion, it allows any combination of digital video formats, such as DVI (VM7604/VM8604) and HDMI (VM7804/VM8804), thus making it ideal for large-scale A/V applications such as broadcasting stations, traffic and transportation-related control rooms, emergency service centers and any application that requires customizable high speed A/V signal routing.
Combining these devices, this solution can be conveniently customized, allowing users to independently switch and route video and/or audio signals to various monitors, displays, projectors and/or speakers simply by pressing front panel pushbuttons. ATEN modular matrix solution series's built-in scaler encodes video formats in order to provide seamless, real-time switching while ensuring stable signal transmission. In addition, the front panel LCD shows a quick view of active port connections, and includes an option to select an EDID Mode that yields the best resolution across different monitors.
ATEN modular matrix solution series is easily expandable and accommodates ATEN's hot-swappable I/O boards. Equipped with automatic signal conversion, it allows a combination of digital video formats, thus making it ideal for large-scale A/V applications.
Setup is fast and easy; install the modular I/O boards by sliding them into ATEN modular matrix solution series's rear panel slots, then plug the device cables into the appropriate ports on the I/O boards and your ready.
This solution can be connected to the network through ATEN modular matrix solution series' LAN port, allowing the installation to take advantage of internal CAT-5 Ethernet wiring built into most modern commercial buildings. Once initial network setup has been accomplished at the local level, ATEN modular matrix solution series can be conveniently managed remotely using any web browser. Furthermore, for complete systems integration, ATEN modular matrix solution series's built-in RS-232 and RS-485/RS-422 ports allows the switch to be configured through a high-end controller or PC.
ATEN modular matrix solution series offers real-time control and advanced access to manage up to 32 video sources and 32 displays simultaneously, through modular I/O boards in a single chassis. Empowered by ATEN Seamless Switch™ technology, the matrix switch, incorporating a speed-progressive video switching function and a unique scaler, integrates seamlessly with video wall systems - to project live video with precision in any dimension on a perfect timeline.
The installation is fully expandable with modular I/O boards that provide plug-n-play connectivity with an extensive portfolio of analogue and digital A/V equipment. The modular I/O boards are hot-pluggable for any occasion that requires quick replacement of A/V connections without shutting down any existing service.
ATEN modular matrix solution series is a powerful integrated A/V setup targeted towards broadcasting stations, traffic and transportation-related control rooms, emergency service centers and any application that requires customizable high speed A/V signal routing.
Video Wall Integration with Scaler
A unique scaler utilizing ATEN FPGA technology is built in VM1600 to unify various video input signals and render optimum output resolutions on displays with uncompromised precision. Through an intuitive web GUI, up to 32 video wall profiles can be created with custom screen layouts, viable in a wide range of pro-A/V applications.
Easy Video Wall Setup
Through a simple point-and-click web interface, VM1600 allows customizable screen setups via up to 32 connection profiles - to see featuring what you want, how you want it.
Integrated Control Mechanism
VM1600 features an all-in-one control mechanism that integrates video wall processing and matrix switching capability in a single chassis. This new approach not only simplifies installation with streamlined management, but contributes to overall system reliability.
ATEN Seamless Switch™ technology features instantaneous video switching to deliver Full HD video powered by an exclusive seamless engine implemented at each output port. This high-performance engine processes A/V signals by executing EDID and HDCP handshakes simultaneously at both source and display ends, scaling inputs for the best output resolution while setting the output clock timing, and using a frame buffer to retain input signal information for the fastest output.
VM1600 is equipped with a spare slot for a redundant power module, in case of an unexpected power outage. This prevents single points of failure from experiencing system downtime, keeping the system highly available at all times without interrupting any existing services.
Installation of Hot-pluggable Components
The modular matrix switch solution, encompassing hot-pluggable I/O boards, allows video sources of any interface type to be routed independently to target displays of any interface, making it easy and flexible to cross play video in any matrix.
