The Bosch KBD-Universal is a full featured keyboard designed for use with all Allegiant switchers, Divar digital recorders and System4 multiplexers. This keyboard has the advantage over the KBD-Digital model keyboard of being able to control an Allegiant switcher plus a Divar recorder or System4 multiplexer at the same time, eliminating the need for multiple keyboards. The keyboard connects to a system using the supplied 10 ft. cable carrying both control signals and power. Optional keyboard extension kits are available to extend distances up to 100 ft. (LTC 8558) or up to 5000 ft. (LTC8557). The keyboard is built of a rugged splash-proof design and incorporates various features for ease of setup and operation. These include Soft Keys, backlit-keys with an easy-to-read display, and a user-friendly OSD offering programming in several languages. An optional rack kit is available for mounting in a standard 19" rack.

KBD-UNIVERSAL features include:

  • Control matrix, DVR, and IP video products with one keyboard
  • Soft keys allow for product-specific menus
  • Backlit keys and easy-to-read displays
  • Simplified system programming with an intuitive interface
