Pickering Interfaces introduced the 60-710, a dual 24 x 8 switching matrix designed to switch video signals in 75-ohm transmission lines. It can be configured via software to operate as a single expanded matrix of 48 x 8. The switching system is housed in a 1U high rack-mountable form factor, making it suitable for use in rack-mounted applications. All video connections are provided on the front panel using SMB connectors.

The LXI Class C-compliant interface allows the product to be remotely controlled via its Ethernet port through a web browser or by the programmatic interface. The 60-710 LXI-compliant interface serves up a soft front panel application that allows the user to control the switching matrix without the installation and configuration of drivers, said the company.

The programmatic interface allows the product to be controlled through the supplied DLLs or IVI driver.

David Owen, business development manager for Pickering Interfaces commented "The 60-710 is an example of the type of switching function that can exploit the mechanical flexibility of LXI to provide a more effective solution than modular platforms. The 60-710 implements a large matrix as a single device occupying 1U of a rack and requiring no configuration cabling."
