Linx DVI 8 x 8
Digital Switcher - with Total EDID Manager

The Linx™ is a high-performance non-blocking DVI 8 x 8 matrix routing switcher with eight inputs and eight outputs. All inputs are available to any or all of the outputs. The Linx delivers pure digital switching and routing of DVI signals. When combined with digital signal sources and digital displays, it allows for fully digital end-to-end signal distribution.


The Linx switcher accepts input signals up to 1920 x 1200 and 2048 x 1080p and supports the full 1.65 Gbit/sec DVI standard. In addition to switching picture information, the Linx supports pass-though EDID, allowing for transparent communication between output and input devices. The Linx also provides programmable or manual override of the EDID with Total EDID Manager™. This highly advanced system offers the user a choice between fixed, pass-through or emulated EDID.


Maintaining digital signal integrity is crucial in a DVI switcher. The Linx is unique among digital switchers in providing optimal signal fidelity. The Linx corrects jitter and signal distortion errors with pixel reclocking. RGB Spectrum is the first to offer this capability. The Linx also offers built-in cable equalization on all inputs to extend cable lengths up to 50 meters without the need for external signal extenders.


The front panel LCD touch screen provides convenient control. On-screen menus allow changes to the switching matrix, singly or in multiples, with a single button push. A status screen graphically displays all connections between inputs and outputs.


Remote control is via Ethernet and RS-232 serial ports. RGB Spectrum's WCP server for control of the switcher is accessible from any web browser. No special software is required on the user's PC. Single or multiple point control is available, managed from a password-protected configuration screen.


The Linx is packaged in a rugged 2U steel chassis, with front replaceable air filters. It offers a reliable and robust solution for challenging environments.


The Linx DVI switcher provides an unmatched combination of performance, optimized signal quality, robust operation, and ease of use.
