March 18, 2004

Targeting emergency applications, mobile production trucks, remote flyaway kits and corporate video production studios with limited space requirements, FOR-A is introducing the new Clean Switch CS-HD1602 routing switcher at NAB2004.

The Clean Switch can distribute high-definition (HD) signals with embedded audio in the 1RU frame.

The compact 16x2 HD-SDI routing matrix architecture enables error-free switching and signal distribution of high-definition digital video signals with eight channels of embedded audio. It can be used for both simple-cut switching and as a backup router in emergency situations.

HD signals supported include 1080/59.94i and 60i and 720/59.94p and 720/60p. Serial remote control functionality is provided via RS-232C or RS-422 (selectable) protocols.
