The VanCryst™ Media Matrix Solution is a combination of the VM1616T 16x16 Cat 5 A/V Matrix Switch and the VE500/VE300 A/V Over Cat 5 Extender. The VM1616T is a Matrix Switch that routes and distributes audio, video, and RS-232 signals over distances of up to 1000ft. (300 m) with 1920 x 1200 video resolution. The VM1616T can receive data from up to 16 audio/video sources and transmit data to up to 16+1 audio/video displays. The VM1616T offers several convenient ways to access and control the source devices: locally, with front panel pushbuttons and an RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 serial port; and remotely, over the Internet with a browser-based web page interface.

The Media Matrix Solution is an ideal solution when long runs to the A/V output locations are required, and where versatility and security are essential. The VM1616T is designed for deployment in environments that involve routing video signals such as those found in casinos, transportation and logistics centers, traffic control centers, port security facilities, industrial supervision settings, etc.
