DVI matrix switchers from Extron29 April 2010
Said to combine the simplicity and reliability of a fixed I/O matrix switcher with the convenience and flexibility of a modular matrix switcher, the DMS 3600 and DMS 1600 accept various combinations of 4-port DVI input boards, 4-port DVI output boards and 4×4 DVI I/O boards for switching high-resolution DVI digital video signals without copy protection.
The DMS 3600 is an 8U enclosure that can be configured in I/O sizes from 4×4 to 36×36, while the DMS 1600 is a 4U model, configurable from 4 x 4 to 16 x 16. The modular, field-upgradable and hot-swappable design allows for future system expansion as well as system reliability with a fan assembly and redundant power supplies that can be replaced at any time.
To enhance and simplify integration of DVI-equipped sources and displays, the DMS 3600 and DMS 1600 feature EDID Minder, which automatically manages EDID communication between all connected input sources.
