The IRT 6080-DVS digital video switcher is part of a family of “smart” switchers in openGear® format that may be configured by the user to cover a wide range of switching and monitoring functions.
On board configuration is possible to allow the IRT-6080-DVS to be used as an 8×1 switcher with 2 common outputs; a dual independent 4×1 switcher; an 8×2 or 4×2 router.
Push-button switches along the front edge provide local control, although control is usually intended via a software interface such as DashBoard®.
Optionally remote control is via a momentary wire per crosspoint (WPX) control connector allowing interface to the IRT 6080 RC remote control panel or a telemetry system, or alternatively an RS232 remote control is also available providing extended control.
Front edge switches can be disabled for tally indication only so as to prevent accidental switching when intending only to use one of the remote control options.
The IRT-6080-DVS is designed to fit the openGear standard 2RU frames which allow a mixture of cards from various manufacturers to be mounted within the same frame.
The DashBoard control software is available as a free download.
