Linx Cross X Format 900, 1700, 3300
One Switcher for DVI & RGB Sources

The Linx™ 900 8x8 CrossXFormat switcher is the optimal solution for environments with both DVI and analog RGB sources.


Incorporating RGB Spectrum's breakthrough CrossXFormat architecture, the Linx 900 supports DVI and RGB signals on every input. Unlike other companies' solutions that offer two separate switchers housed in a single enclosure, the Linx is a truly integrated system. Analog RGB and YPbPr input signals are internally converted, processed through the switcher and output as DVI signals.


Configurations include 4 to 8 inputs and 4 to 8 outputs. Custom configurations are also available and short-loaded units are field upgradeable.


Signals with pixel clock rates from 25 MHz to 165MHz are supported, including 1920x1200 and 2048 x 1152.

HDCP is supported, allowing content-protected HDMITM signals. An HDCP encoded signal can be routed to up to all 8 outputs simultaneously. Embedded audio and 12-bit Deep Color are also supported.


EDID management and control are simplified with RGB Spectrum's Total EDID Manager™, which provides the user with the most complete set of EDID management tools available, including fixed, emulated and real-time pass through of EDID. Along with on-board storage, EDID and configuration files may be exchanged between the switcher and a PC.


All Linx family switchers are designed with simplified system integration in mind: Functions are easily set up and controlled using a command line interface or graphically via a standard web browser. Front panel controls provide quick access to call up presets or create a routing assignment. Built-in cable equalization extends input cable lengths without the need for external signal extenders. Output connectors can supply up to 4 amps of total power for pin-powered devices such as cables or extenders, obviating the need for external power supplies. The Linx 900's modular architecture simplifies I/O card replacement should it ever be needed and the units feature a user-swappable power supply.


A Linx 800 8x8 DVI model is also available for pure DVI switching.


Built on RGB Spectrum's long tradition of quality and reliability, the Linx 800 and 900 are designed for 24/7 operation. They provide an unmatched combination of performance, features, robust construction and ease of use ideally suited for mission critical applications.
