Chosen among the best in the Digital Signal project of the year category, the Voyager VG-Matrix 160 is a unique fiber-optic based matrix switch because of its considerable headroom. The Voyager switching solutions can achieve a whopping 3,000 total ports and the ability to configure any single port on Voyager's 8-port I/O cards as an input or an output. Such options grant system integrators plenty of room for future application growth while providing a fully flexible system that can extend, distribute and switch digital (with HDCP) and analog video, audio and serial to distances of 18.6 miles.
Typical digital video switches feature some delay when switching between sources, especially those with HDCP. Voyager matrix switchers can switch between all types of source content at extremely high speeds. A YouTube video demonstration of Voyager's fast switching capabilities is available here: http://youtu.be/Skl46pqSOggg .
