OUR PART #  1616V3XL

Note: The picture is for illustrative purposed only and may not be the exact representation of this model.

The improved design of the Sierra Pro XL 1616V5S allows for higher bandwidth routing with very low crosstalk. The frame is a compact 6RU (10.5") and allows control of multiple signal types including composite, S-Video, YUV, RGBS, RGBHV, Y/C, and analog HD. This Sierra Pro XL system accommodates balanced or un-balanced audio, AFV, or Breakaway split routing allowing for RGB muting for enhanced performance with projectors and displays. IP control, RS-232 serial control and a front local control panel are standard. Remote control options are available.
