MegaPower LT Matrix Switcher - 16x4

Designed to satisfy the needs of small scale installations, the American Dynamics ADMPLT16 MegaPower LT 16x4 Matrix Switcher (NTSC/PAL) offers 16 video inputs and 4 video outputs. The switcher has DirectSet function that enables you to change dome camera settings through an on-screen selection or a keyboard command; you do not need to access the dome menus for this purpose. It is a small system that can be fixed at different spots - be it on walls or under the desks - as per your convenience.

With the MegaPower LT, you can establish 16 tours of video inputs which can be run both in forward or reverse modes. The tours can include multiple presets and patterns from a single camera or a single video input multiple times. The switcher enables you to program alarm inputs to call any video input to one or multiple video outputs. At the same time, you can assign a camera, alarm title, event message, preset, keyboard sound level and/or auxiliary action for each alarm. Through the ADnet (RS-485) and RS-232 communication protocols, you can control fixed and variable-speed domes, auxiliary outputs, presets, and patterns at suitably equipped camera sites.
