The SV-551 BrainBox processor/switcher receives video signals transmitted from the SummitView wall plates or Kramer twisted-pair transmitter. Acting as a room controller, the SV-551 can be configured to control room devices and functions via RS-232. The RC-62 and RC-63 six-button controllers can be connected to the SV-551 via K-Net cable for control features and power. The RC-62 has an IR Learning feature, while the RC-63A adds an analog volume knob and the RC-63D has a digital volume knob. Several input wall plates receive graphics and AV signals, convert them to twisted-pair signals, and send them to the SV-551. Prices: Essentials kit, $2,895; Standard kit, $3,095.
