The PS634 switcher is a modular card-based system that supports a variety of analog and digital source devices and provides one output on two HDMI connectors in a "splitter" or duplicated mode.

This card-based system provides exceptional "value-engineering" design flexibility by only requiring the boards necessary for a given solution while "future-proofing" installations for field expansion and modification at a later date. This design concept benefits the end user as well as the systems integrator. End users need only purchase what they currently need while safeguarding unforseen future changes or expansion. For systems integrators and dealerships, this design annuitizes an installation beyond the initial installation with long term expansion opportunities.

MODULAR CHASSIS DESIGN

The PS634 digital switcher is a modular card-based system that supports up to 10 digital or analog devices with one output split or duplicated on two independently buffered HDMI output connectors. Each modular input board is independent of all other cards in the system. Here are a few reasons why a modular chassis valuable to dealers and end users:

  • Flexible. The PS634 supports a wide variety of digital and analog signal formats including HDMI, VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, Composite, Component, and HDBaseT. In the future, as technologies advance, the PS634 can be field upgraded to support newer technologies with a simple input and output board upgrades.
  • Cost Effective. The customer only purchases the cards that are required for the current installation. Other manufacturers charge for connectors that are likely to never be used.
  • Field Upgradable. The PS634 enclosure (system) is field upgradable. Add or subtract cards as necessary - all done in the field without unnecessary downtime for customers.
  • Feature Rich. Designed around real-world applications, the PS634 offers a considerable amount of flexibility.

DIGITAL PRESENTATION SWITCHER

The PS634 is a fully digital switcher offering backward support for analog source devices. Analog signals are converted to digital signals. This design allows customers and systems integrators to use today's higher resolution display devices while supporting a wide variety of sources.

ONE-TOUCH SOURCE SELECTION

A single one-touch front panel selection is all that is necessary to select a source. An LED located above each button identifies the active source selected.

NUMEROUS INPUT SIGNAL TYPES

The PS634 modular digital switcher supports a wide range of analog and digital signal types:

  • HDMI
  • VGA + Stereo
  • Composite + Stereo
  • Component + Stereo
  • DVI + Stereo
  • DisplayPort
  • HDBaseT with PoE

2 HDMI or HDMI+HDBaseT OUTPUTS

Offering modular output configurations, the PS634 switcher offers exceptional video output flexibility to meet most installation needs. The HDMI output is designed for the primary output display device. However, often an HDBaseT output is required when reaching displays further away.

VOLUME CONTROL

Volume control is a standard feature for the PS634 using the rotary digital knob located on the front panel or via Ethernet, RS232, or USB. Volume control can adjust the speaker-level outputs or adjust line level audio output in a "pre-amp" mode.

(Optional) 100W SPEAKER OUTPUTS

When sound-reinforcment is required, the integrated and efficient 100W Class D amplifier is a cost-effective solution to power local speakers.

AUDIO INPUT LEVEL ADJUSTMENT

It is not uncommon for source audio to vary from -10dB (pro-audio formats) to 4dB (consumer formats). The resulting experience is obvious differences in volume when switching between inputs. With the PS634, audio inputs can be adjusted to temper or attenuate "hot" signals to a nominal level through an easy-to-use front panel adjustment.

LINE LEVEL AUDIO OUTPUT

Line level audio is provided for video conference feeds or when audio needs to be routed to a mixing board. Using the front panel settings, the output levels of the line out can be fixed or can vary depending upon the volume controls of the PS634 presentation switcher.

SOURCE SELECT BROADCAST (SSB)

The Source Select Broadcast (SSB) feature sends a message out the RS-232, Ethernet TCP/IP Telnet, or USB port anytime a new source is selected. This optional unsolicited broadcast keeps third party controllers up to date with any input select change occuring from the front panel.

INPUT PORT LED INDICATORS

As a debugging tool for service technicians, each input port has a multi-color light emitting diode (LED) that displays a Red color indicating Power On and a Green color indicating that a source signal has been detected. When diagnosing problems, this LED saves valuable technician time. Similarly, LEDs exist on the video output boards. These LEDs show if an output is being sent to the display.
