RTcom USA Introduces World's Largest Digital Matrix Routers

New Digital Extender® EDM-8080M Expandable Digital Matrix Router (80x80) and HDSDI-7272M 3G HD-SDI Matrix Router (72x72) are Ideal for Large-Scale Applications

SPARTA, N.J. ― April 20, 2009 ― RTcom USA Inc., a provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer A/V systems, today introduced the Digital Extender® EDM -8080M, a fully expandable digital matrix router that simultaneously supports multiple digital video signals, and the HDSDI -7272M matrix router designed for SDI and HD -SDI video signal routing. Both matrix routers offer a variety of robust interface options, support multiple signals, and are ideal for large -scale broadcast systems, monitoring systems, video imaging systems, and more.

The EDM -8080M expandable digital matrix router allows integrators to use a single device for multiple signal types, rather than incorporating a variety of separate matrix switchers. Previously, each signal type ― including digital video interface (DVI), high -definition multimedia interface (HDMI), and display port ― required a separate matrix switcher, resulting in overly complex installations. The EDM -8080M, however, simultaneously supports all of these digital formats in a simplified, all -inclusive design. The expandable router features a flexible backplane with slots for modular input/output cards, which allow prompt availability for any interface, and because it is user -configurable, input/output cards can be replaced or added at any time.

The HDSDI -7272M is a matrix router designed for use with all SDI and HD -SDI video signals. Offering input and output capabilities from 12x12 to 72x72 channels, the HDSDI -7272M routes all digital video signals including SDI, HD -SDI, and 3G SDI up to 2.97 gigabytes per second. The unit's HD -SDI inputs allow for simple integration with high -definition digital video output devices such as image processors and medical imaging devices, making it ideal for use in broadcast systems, medical facilities, command and control centers, videoconferencing, and any A/V application where high -quality images need to be displayed.

"At RTcom, we have a reputation for delivering high -quality connectivity products designed to meet the needs of any application, and our EDM -8080M and HDSDI -7272M continue that tradition," said Joon Ryu, president of RTcom USA. "Catering to large -scale system design for broadcast, medical, and command and control facilities, our two new routers provide an unprecedented number of inputs and outputs for installation ease and flexibility, allowing the access and control of multiple digital interfaces with just a single product."

The EDM -8080M Features:
• 80 inputs and 80 outputs
• A variety of user interfaces via RS -232C, LAN (TCP/IP) control, and touch panel
