The FC-18 includes one HDMI input and one HDMI output, along with three ports

The FC-18 is a display ‘on/off’ controller for 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) HDR HDMI signals and HDCP 2.2/1.4 signals at an 18G (6G per channel) data rate. It accepts and outputs an HDMI signal after reclocking and equalising. On detection of the onset of an input signal, the FC-18 sends an ‘on’ command to the display or projector and when it detects the loss of an input signal, it sends an ‘off’ command. The FC-18 can also be used to control a display device manually via front-panel buttons, Ethernet or contact closure switches.

Commands are sent to the display device via CEC, RS–232 or Ethernet, while data tunnelling between the RS-232 port and the Ethernet ports is also supported. The FC-18 also includes one HDMI input and one HDMI output, along with three ports: one Ethernet on an RJ45 connector, one RS-232 on a three-pin terminal block and one USB port on a female USB Type-A connector. The power source is 5V DC and consumption is 580mA.


In other news, the Aspen-1616UX is a 16x16 matrix switcher for SDI signals up to 12G. It equalises the input signal and reclocks the output signal to gain extended reach signal extension. It auto-adapts from 270Mbps to 12Gbps data rates and accepts SDI, HD-SDI, 3G HD-SDI, 6G and 12G SDI-compliant input signals with video resolution of up to 4K@60Hz (4:2:2) 30bpp. Using high-quality coaxial SDI cables, extension is supported up to 300m for SD signals; 200m for 1.5G HD signals; 100m for 3G and 6G HD signals; and 80m for 12G 4K signals.

The ASPEN-32UFX is a 32-port matrix switcher for SDI signals up to 12G SDI. Each SDI port can be defined as either an input or output, enabling flexible configurations such as a 1x31 distribution amplifier, 31x1 switcher, 16x16 matrix switcher or any other input−output combination. The switcher is compatible with HDTV and supports a maximum data rate of 12Gbps. Kramer Equalization and re-Klocking technology rebuilds the digital signal to travel longer distances.
