Request more information or contact us now for purchasing information.


MX9x9DVI-Plus, MX12x12DVI-Plus and MX16x16DVI-Plus matrix switchers range from 9 input - 9 output, 12 input - 12 output to 16 input - 16 output. The 7 inch depth, 4 RU high body and low noise fan design makes it ideal for many space and noise sensitive applications. The frames incorporate Lightware's Advanced EDID Management function. The user can emulate any EDID on the switcher's inputs independently, read out and store any attached monitor's EDID in 100 internal memory locations, upload and download EDID files using Remote Control software. The crosspoint switcher can be controlled through a 9-pole D-sub connector via RS-232 or RS-422 protocol, and IP based Ethernet connection including web access through a Neutrik EtherCON connector which ensures a robust connection at all times.
