12x8 RGBHV Matrix Switcher with Balanced Stereo
The Sierra Video Alta Pro series RGBHV 1208HB5S routing switchers, with Balanced Stereo feature, offer the highest-available bandwidth in the industry with extremely low crosstalk and a reduced foot-print. The Alta Pro 1208 HB5S routing switchers employ a single vertically-mounted video board which contains all the signal paths for video routing. Fewer boards mean a simpler, and therefore even more reliable product.

1208HB5S 12x8 RGBHV Matrix Switcher with Balanced Stereo
Sierra Alta Pro Series
Bandwidth - 600MHz (-3dB)
Control - RS-232, RS-422 & Ethernet
Digital Volume Control
RGB Video Feature
High Bandwidth - 600MHz (-3dB) fully loaded.
Extremely Low Crosstalk - < -85dB @1MHz.
A/V Breakaway Switch Routing - Video and audio may be switched separately for enhanced performance with projectors and displays.
Room Grouping - Several inputs may be grouped and operated independently of other input groups on the routing switchers. This way one routing switcher is used for multiple “rooms” where the control system for each room addresses only the inputs and outputs assigned to that room.
Video Follow Sync™ Switching - The H and V channels of an RGBHV signal are switched in advance of the RGB video channels of the signal (“AV Mute Delay”) to provide clean, glitch-free switching between non-synchronous sources.
Video Mute Capability - Switches to “no source” for blank display.
Sync Features
Sync Reporting - Captures and reports the input sync rates for each input signal. Those rates can be read using Sierra Video’s TyLinx Pro™ Router Control Software or the Host port protocol. An optional local control panel setting displays any input that does not have a valid sync signal.
Input Detection - 200mv. Re-shapes and re-squares sync to output the correct TTL level.
Selectable Termination - 10 or 75 ohm on inputs 1 to 8.
Analog Audio Features
Audio Type - Balanced or un-balanced stereo on terminal blocks.
Input (Level) Adjustment (-8dB to 10dB) - For each input via RS-232, front panel, and TyLinx Pro Router Control Software. Balances audio levels in systems passing consumer and professional audio levels.
Output (Volume) Adjustment (Mute, -59.5dB to 15dB) - For each output via RS-232, front panel, and TyLinx Pro Router Control Software.
No Zipper Effect - Sierra Alta Pro routing switchers employ zero crossover chip technology which eliminates the annoying “zipper sound effect” associated with digital volume controls.
Crosstalk - < -89dB @1MHz.
Audio Mute Capability - < -89dB @1MHz.
LED Bar Graph Display - For indicating audio signal levels on the front panel.
Control Features
8 levels of button light intensity.
RS-485 - for optional control panels.
Supports TCP/IP protocol - rear panel RJ-45 connector.
TyLinx Pro Router Control Software and TyLinx Pro Net™ Network-Enabled Router Control Sof tware.
Other Features
Color-Coded Rear Panel - Red, green, blue, white and yellow for ease of cable installation.
Energy Savings - Uses 40% less power than previous generation RGBHV routing switchers.
Downloadable Firmware Updates.
Certifications - UL & CE.
Control Panels (Optional) - Programmable, single bus and XY.
