SVS-88: True 8×8 Audio/Video Matrix Switcher (Discontinued)

The Nortek Security & Control Family of Brands

This product is discontinued

The SVS-88 True 8×8 Audio/Video Matrix Switcher is a crosspoint switching matrix. It allows eight audio/video inputs to be switched to any of the eight audio/video outputs with virtually no switching loss. The matrix is controlled via front pushbuttons, easy to use IR remote control, or through an RS-232 interface. The SVS-88 provides broadcast quality switching of S-video (or composite video with an external adapter) and audio (coaxial Dolby 5.1 digital or analog left and right stereo). The SVS-88 provides maximum flexibility for both home and commercial applications allowing fewer peripheral components to provide consistently high quality audio and video throughout the installation.

By combining SVS-88 with the Model SVC-10, outputs can be converted to transmit audio and video on Cat-5 cable up to 1,000 feet away to a Model SVC-10R receiver. IR remote control signals will be passed back up the same Cat-5 cabling from the remote location to control the SVS-88.
