SDZ16 is a 16×16 SD digital matrix switcher with associated analog audio.

It’s ideal for switching SD-SDI signals in video studios, production center and non linear editing suites.

Each SD input is provided with an automatic compensation and each output is reclocked.

Audio is inputs / outputs balanced type.

The matrix switcher can be commanded by integrated keyboardoard and by computer through RS232 or LAN. SDZ16 performs a synchronous switching with an analog external reference with the possibility to select the switching line (1÷16).

Firmware updating of the Elpro devices is possible using the specific utility UPLOADER.

This software should be downloaded and installed on a PC in a Windows environment.

To perform the updating of the firmware it is necessary to connect the device to the PC serial line and therefore to perform the action (typical for every device) to put the device in UPGRADE MODE.

Then load the .hex file of the new firmware version and start uploading to the device.

At the conclusion of the updating it is necessary to turn OFF and ON again the device.
