12x4 Wideband RGB Matrix Switcher

The Crestron CEN-RGBHV12X4 is a high-bandwidth matrix switcher capable of routing up to 12 computer or video sources to up to 4 display devices. Its five matrix levels accommodate any combination of analog RGBHV, HD/component, S-Video and composite signals. Proven flat response achieves optimum performance even at the highest bandwidth. Selectable sync impedance on every input helps accommodate varying cable lengths.
