This listing is for 1616V5S-xl Switcher only. Use description below as a general reference.

The Sierra Pro XL series component analog routing switchers offers high-bandwidth 3, 4, or 5 channel (RGB + HV) and stereo audio (S) matrix routing capability in a series of compact frames. The Pro series was designed specifically for presentation environments such as corporate boardrooms, live staging events, churches, and universities.

This manual covers only the Pro Series 16 routing switchers. These robust routers offer RGB/HV and Stereo Audio in the same, compact frame. Moreover, these durable frames can be populated from one to five video and pulse sync channels. They have been engineered for high bandwidth with very low crosstalk. Many other features include audio gain adjustment for Inputs and Outputs through standard front control panels or via a control serial port and optional redundancy. The series 16 system accommodates balanced or un-balanced audio, AFV, or breakaway split routing allowing RGB muting for seamless performance to projectors and displays. This family of routing switchers is optimized for multiple signal type control within the same frame. Composite, S-video, YC, YUV, RGBHV, analog HD, and audio are easily control with one small Sierra Pro frame. Sierra Pro’s 450MHz bandwidth supports most high-resolution sources.

The Pro Series 16 models also feature a user-friendly, color-coded (RGB) rear panel layout for easy installation, and their own unique motherboard configuration options. Frames also come with standard front local control panel, serial control via an RS-232/422 serial interface, and an RJ-45 Ethernet port, with up to five simultaneous users that are supported by SVS software and by all major third-party control systems.
