tvONE C3-340-1001 CORIOmatrix Universal I/O Scaling Matrix Router, 4RU

Support Documentation:

C3-340 CORIOmatrix is based on tvONE's exclusive CORIO2 technology and provides high quality modular video matrix switching using CORIOsoftswitch, which provides an industry first firmware based video routing, switching and video conversion platform. 16 AV module slots are available. Additional modules can be added later.

By choosing scaled output modules, the CORIO®matrix also provides Up, Down and Cross conversion between a variety of analog and digital video formats thru 3G-SDI and HDBaseT. The modules selected determine what format will be accommodated and the matrix size. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off.

All the functions can be controlled via RS-232, and a web browser based control software is integrated in the unit allowing fast, intuitive operation via IP connection. AMX and Crestron programming modules are available and the command line interface allows for easy integration with any range of third party control options. The unit is housed in a standard 4RU rackmount case and features an optional redundant hot swappable internal PSU and power inlet.
