The Innovation series of compact routing switchers is designed for the most demanding broadcast users. Redundancy, reliability and flexibility make these switchers ideal for critical path operations. The clean design reduces the number of potential failure points, and the full seven year warranty guarantees a long,effective life.

Based on rugged frame structures, each system has cells for optional back-up power supplies. All signal board cells in the frames are fully compatible with analogue or digital formats, making field upgrades simple and cost effective.

Each switcher package includes a set of analogue and/or digital boards and universal power supplies. All boards can be added or exchanged while the equipment is in sevice, minimizing down time and increasing flexibility. the 16x2 router includes input signal clamping, eliminating the need fro external DA's.

The Ethernet-based control architecture supports up to 32 control panels via a single coax line. The control system includes an RS232 interface with a very flexible protocol, allowing the interface to external controller specific to the needs of the installation.

Product Features

  • Modular design. A separate plug-in module for 8x8 video. 8x8 audio can be added later by simply plugging in the desired type of audio module. There are no active components in the frame.
  • Plug-in power-supply modules. Two front load slots for power supplies. One PS is standard. The second supply is the redundant power supply option. True load power monitoring with remote indicators included for both power supplies.
  • A standard computer hardware based Ethernet 10Base2 single coax connection based remote control panel system.
  • Because of ISIS unique 'control panel cradle', model CR100, local control panels can be easily moved to the 10Base2 remote network and vice versa.
  • A wide selection of AFV, breakaway, and X-Y local and/or remote control panels.
  • Built-in RS232 user serial port, with a simple and flexible protocol.
  • Interchangeable digital or analog modules in the same rugged 1RU mounting frame.
  • Vertical interval switching is referenced to an external input.
