Lightning delivers uncompressed, zero latency, digital video signals at up to 4k resolution, using standard Ethernet infrastructure. Based on the award winning SDVoE chip set, this revolutionary technology takes digital video signal management into the future.

Lightning is built for the Pro AV industry to satisfy the demands of routing hi-resolution 4K video to multiple destinations with every pristine detail of the original source. Audio, analog and embedded are catered for with embedding and de-embedding features. RS232 and IR control are also routed along side the video signal.

A particular integrator friendly feature is complete break away switching of all signal types, video, audio, RS232 and IR, these can be routed independently to any destination.

Scalable matrix switchers of any size can easily created, so you only pay for what you need and ensure any future expansion can be accommodated.

Video walls of up to 5×5 (25 displays) can also be achieved with Lightning, in fact mixed use of matrix switching with multiple video walls can all be accommodated within the one system.

Lightning is perfect for applications requiring hi-resolution imaging like data visualisation and healthcare, where 4k sources are often used for analytical decision making.
