HDTV Audio/Video Matrix Switch
"The SM-8x4-HDA switch is working out great for us. We have not entered the Hi-Def world yet, but we will have the switching tools when we do. In the mean time, the beauty of this switch is, it works great for regular old analog video and audio signals. I am using extremely sensitive boundary microphones in each of our classrooms. I take the amplified signal from each of these microphones and run them through the analog half of our switch. I take the analog video signals from our DVRs along with the video signals from our Axis PTZ classroom cameras and run them back through the switch in our control room. I can marry up the audio signal from any classroom with the video from any classroom and then record the combined output on DVD. We have been recording live venues such as 4H meetings, Master Gardening classes, and Homeland Security Meetings. The flexibility this switch gives us to capture any combination of video and audio from our classrooms has really paid off for us. Thatís why Iím ordering another switch."
