Panasonic WJ-SX650/G Expandable Matrix Switcher up to 256 Cameras x 32 Monitors

The WJ-SX650 Matrix System from Panasonic allows control of up 256 cameras onto a maximum of 32 monitor outputs. The basic model is equipped to cater for up to 32 cameras and 16 monitors, the systems modular design allows it to be expanded during installation or as a future upgrade. Additional camera input boards may be added to the system to give an additional 32 cameras per board, an additional monitor board brings the system up to 32 monitor outputs.

For ease of maintenance, the camera, monitor and power boards can be accessed from the front of the matrix without disconnecting cables from the matrix. This allows service operations to be carried out with relative ease.

The matrix not only enables a large number of cameras to be connected to the system, but can handle a staggering 1,024 alarms. These range from alarm signals direct from a camera, terminal alarm inputs, recorder generated, video loss and serial interface (RS232).

Camera control data can be multiplexed onto the video coaxial cable reducing the need for additional data cabling to be installed when controlling Panasonic’s range of fully functional cameras. For cameras that do not support Panasonic’s coaxial telemetry or those at greater distances, RS485 communication can be used.

Panasonic’s Digital Video Recorder’s, WJ-HD300A Series and WJ-RT416 Series can be integrated with the matrix to allow seamless control of live and recorded images from Panasonic’s system controllers. Likewise control of cameras can be taken over a network from the WJ-HD300A Series recorders.

The matrix is supplied with the WJ-SX650 Administrator Console, this piece of software allows detailed configuration of the matrix to be performed with ease. This configuration includes, group sequences, tour sequences, group presets, alarm actions, operator registration and level setup and timer events. The configuration for the matrix can be backed up on a PC.   Integrated Control of up to 256 Cameras and 32 Monitors
