Theatrixx Reversible Converter system

The future-proof Theatrixx Reversible Converter system is the natural extension of the award-winning xVision Converter line. Its modular design allows individual systems to be configured exactly as needed, and even reconfigured on-the-fly. There is a host of modules available—featuring SDI, HDMI, Fiber, HDBaseT and more—with new modules being added regularly. All modules can be inserted with inputs/outputs at either the front or the back of the unit and are enclosed to protect against static shock, dust and general wear and tear.

Virtually uninterrupted uptime is engineered with power supplies configured to switch over automatically in case of failure and LEDs at the front of the unit to indicate status. Mains power is delivered via dual locking PowerCON True1 connectors. Unbeatable redundancy is built in to the 8-bay, 3RU host unit, which features dual, oversized power supplies and gold-plated, redundant spring pins with magnetic retention to power the modules, eliminating fallible cabling and external DC adaptors.
