Crestron Releases New 32X32 Wideband Matrix Switchers

Crestron 32x32 Component Routing Switchers Provide Ultimate Integration

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, February 11, 2009 - Crestron has added new functionality to its line of CEN -RGBHV switchers. Now, six matrix levels - 8x4, 8x8, 12x4, 12x8, 16x16 and 32x32 - provide flexible signal routing of high -res signals for the most demanding presentation environments. With very low crosstalk, 450MHz video bandwidth, optional audio and full Crestron system integration, the CEN -RGBHV32X32V satisfies the demanding video requirements of corporate boardrooms and training centers, university lecture halls, high -tech houses of worship, command and control facilities, and live stage events.


The CEN -RGBHV32X32A is a professional audio matrix switcher designed for routing balanced stereo audio signals. It may be controlled from a Crestron control system, or connected to a CEN -RGBHV32X32V for a completely integrated AV signal routing solution.

Linked by a single 25 -pin cable, the 32X32A and 32X32V operate as one unit, routing AV and computer sources to multiple displays and audio amplifiers. Audio breakaway capability allows any audio input or output to follow its respective video channel or be switched independently. Full setup and control is enabled from the switcher front panel as well as the Crestron control system.

Every function on the 32X32A and 32X32V is accessible through Crestron SIMPL or SystemBuilder™ programming software without deciphering cryptic protocols. All signal routing, audio compensation settings, and up to 10 routing presets are stored onboard the switcher in non -volatile memory. Integration with a 2 -Series control system provides the gateway to Crestron RoomView® Asset Management Software and e -Control®2 XPanel solutions for remote monitoring and control.
