VG-160 VOYAGER Matrix

160 port Fiber Optic Digital Video Matrix Switching system.

Category: Matrix Routers
Manufacturer: Magenta
SKU: 2330001-01

Voyager VG Matrix switch frames are available in two sizes, the 9U, 160-port VG-Matrix 160 and the 5U, 48-port VG-Matrix 48. Both switch frames can be populated as needed with 8-port I/O cards, and easily upgraded in the field as your application grows

Each configured Voyager transmitter and receiver is also compatible with all Voyager Series matrix switchers. The VG-Matrix 160x delivers a modular and scalable full crosspoint matrix switching platform which can be field configured in increments of 8 inputs and/or outputs up to a maximum of 160x160.

Fiber I/O cards connect seamlessly to the fiber inputs or outputs of Voyager transmitters and receivers delivering matrix switching and long distance extension in one platform.
Fully populated, a 160x Voyager VG-Matrix operates as a 160x160 in simplex mode. In duplex mode, which supports two-way RS-232 and HDCP, the switch can operate as 1x159, 2x158, 159x1, 158x2, or any possible combination in between, thanks to Magenta's Flex I/O technology.

An optional, integrated touch-screen controller can also be factory installed (as pictured above) in a VG-Matrix 160x for additional ease of use. The switch can also be controlled via Magenta's proprietary MaGUI software from a PC using an RS-232 port.
