The new MSC-XD range of routers offer flexible and user friendly control, including a built in web page interface, the powerful but easy to use MASCOT protocol, and 3rd party protocols.

There are over 100 routing switcher configurations to choose from. The smallest router is a 2 x 2 "Mini" digital video router. With 1, 2 and 4U units and I/O increments of 8 up to the 64 x 64 in the 4U high, less than 15cm deep enclosure. This new Modular 64 x 64 unit offers customisation not available elsewhere.
