The Keene Scart Switch Box is a high quality audio/video switcher designed to allow the connection of multiple sources to one display, all via SCART connections. Particular attention has been given to the signal processing to ensure that all video formats and picture information are preserved. The Scart Commander is capable of switching component video, s-video, RGB (in all its forms including RGBs, RGsB, RGBS or RGBHV) and composite video. Because each video channel is correctly routed it can even be used to switch digital audio (with the correctly configured cable). Each input can be selected manually or automatically via auto signal detect. A single switchbox can be used to switch four inputs to one output, or two units may be used together in a Master/Slave arrangement providing switching for seven units to one output. It utilises very high quality high bandwidth IC’s throughout to ensure that there is no discernable signal degradation.
