VFX-248 Flexible Modular Video Matrix Chassis

Quick Overview

The VFX-248 is a high-performance modular matrix switcher chassis providing 32 card slots that allow for flexible AV matrix combinations from 1 x 31 to 24 x 8. Twenty-four flexible card slots support single HDMI, HDBaseT, VGA, analog audio, and microphone input/output cards, while eight fixed slots support output signal cards.


The flexibility of VFX-248 makes it a highly customizable Audio/Video signal matrix switching & video scaling solution for any commercial multimedia application, such as conference rooms, control rooms, hotels, or shopping centers.


The VFX-248 enables cross-point switching from any input card to any output card and supports UHD 4K video. The HDBaseT outputs deliver HDMI video over a Cat5e/Cat6 cable to an VHR-1 HDBaseT receiver up to 130 feet (40 meters) away.


All signal input and output cards support plug & play and hot swapping. Every video or audio signal is transmitted and switched independently to decrease signal attenuation. The VFX-248 can be controlled via IR, RS-232, Ethernet or via front panel touch screen.
