ASHBURN, Va., 27 July 2016. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions Division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the 8-port, multi-format, RVG-SDI Crossbar Video Switch for space- and weight-constrained manned and unmanned platforms used in military and aerospace applications.

The video switch can speed and simplify the routing of 3G, HD and SD-SDI video sources, such as distributing video camera data to several displays. The RVG-SDI functions as a non-blocking crossbar switch and has eight external miniBNC connectors, each of which can be configured as either a video input or output.

The unit can route inputs to any or all of the seven remaining I/O ports. Additionally, the RVG-SD1 can be configured on-the-fly via its external RS-422 and CAN control interfaces or statically to support a specific mission.

The RVG-SDI supports a wide variety of switch configurations, for example, it can be configured as a 1:7 repeater, 7:1 switcher, 2:6 repeater, or a 6:2 switcher, without the seven dedicated inputs and seven dedicated outputs.
