Lightware U.S.A. has announced that the 25G Hybrid 80x80 digital matrix switcher has begun shipping. “The 80x80 is the second frame size in the 25G Hybrid series; the 25G Hybrid 160x160 has been shipping since last year,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications for Lightware U.S.A. “No other matrix switchers have the capabilities of this series, which is ideal for any application concerned about building a large-scale, future-proof switching system. Instead of running cable for every signal type, the 25G Hybrid architecture saves cost and energy by using a single fiber or Cat cable to deliver full HD and 4K digital video, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS-232, and power.” The 25Gbps data-rate switching allows transportation of next-generation video signals such as HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort1.2 and is ready for all video and audio standards, including 4K and stereo 3D formats. Multilayer architecture allows independent routing of each signal type (breakaway switching) for all layers. This feature provides switching and extending of all signal layers separately, or in a breakaway format, to be recombined at output to a single connection. Each video port is equipped with a separate audio input and output (audio return channel) connector forming a 320x320 S/PDIF crosspoint switch. It manages stereo and multichannel audio as well as high-bit-rate formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Multichannel-to-stereo down mixing can be provided as an option.
