New Knox Video Routers for CEDIA 2005

Knox Video Technologies adds two new members to the RSII family, giving more versatility to the competitively priced line.

Gaithersburg, MD - August 30, 2005 - Knox Video Technologies, a part of QuickSet International, Inc., announces two new RSII models to be introduced at CEDIA 2005, Booth 9. The RSII RGB and the RSII SDI are both innovative new routers designed with space and budget constraints in mind. They join the RSII composite video and RSII Y/C models.

The RSII series of switchers was first introduced last year at NAB and has enjoyed great success in the market place. Now Knox will extend the offerings to include high definition analog video along with either balanced or unbalanced audio. The 16x16 matrix is housed in a single three rack unit chassis, and can be ordered with or without front panel control. Like the first RSII machines, the RSII RGB can be ordered with optional IP control in addition to the standard RS -232 and RS -422 control ports. Optional audio control gives more versatility with input trim, volume control, bass, treble, loudness and balance control for each input and output. Engineers and designers can now route audio signals directly to amplifiers, greatly simplifying and reducing the cost of installations.

The new RSII SDI offers routing of standard definition digital video along with AES/EBU and SP/DIF audio. The RSII SDI has built in reclocking and equalization capabilities necessary for switching SDI video over long cable runs. This 16x16 matrix can be ordered with or without digital audio and is housed in a two rack unit chassis. The RSII SDI is the perfect machine for studio or replication applications. Fully buffered, active crosspoint modules allow for the RSII to work as a distribution amplifier as well.

Control from a wide range of third party controllers is quick and easy with our Knox SAS serial control (Simple ASCII Strings) through the RS -232 or RS -422 port. SAS serial commands are easy to learn and pre -programmed control modules are available from a variety of companies including Crestron, AMX, and Control 4.

Knox Video Technologies designs and manufactures cost effective, high performance routing switchers from 2x1 up to 256x256 to meet almost every signal routing application. Like all Knox routing switchers, RSII routers come in a wide variety of configurations and are backed by Knox Video Technologies' five -year parts and labor warranty.
