VideoBloX NetCPU

VideoBloX NetCPU Matrix Switching System
Embedded Video Matrix

Description

Honeywell’s VideoBloX matrix system is a robust video and audio full crosspoint matrix switch that is scalable from small to large applications. The matrix is controlled by a powerful cold fire embedded central processor that also has 16 channels of titled output expandable to 64 within the same chassis. Integration to access control and other systems is possible through a simple auxiliary control protocol. Its compact size and rugged chassis are designed to withstand harsh environments and require limited maintenance.

The VideoBloX embedded CPU is programmed using Windows-based configuration software. The system is expandable to 1248x256 on one CPU, and up to 15 systems can be networked together using RS422 or Ethernet and video trunks. A 2048x32 line sequence engine allows for building custom actions based on system events such as alarms, time of day or key presses, or externally triggered through the auxiliary port. The sequence engine allows the use of Flags, IF, ELSE and DO WHILE logic.

Both video and audio switching can be performed in the same chassis, allowing for compact design and simplified configuration for video and audio follower matrix. Modules are small–occupying only 1/2U in rack height—position independent and hot swappable. Matrix inputs can either be traditional BNC or unshielded twisted pair (UTP) (RJ45). UTP inputs further simplify system design by incorporating the active UTP receiver and switching hardware on one 1⁄2U, 16 channel input board.

Control of PTZ domes, alarm inputs and relay outputs is done through a general purpose input output (GPIO) card in the chassis. The GPIO card further simplifies design and installation, as all field devices can be connected directly to the chassis.

For remote protocol translation and alarm I/O, the multipurpose protocol interface translator (PIT) provides this functionality over RS422. The GPIO card and the PIT can be added to interface with serial devices such as DVRs.

Market Opportunities
The VideoBloX system is a full featured, high capacity, video and audio matrix. VideoBloX fits applications where a robust embedded controller is required. It provides a simple interface for third-party control for access control or Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). Its high density, compact design occupies smaller rack space, making it well suited for installations with limited space and harsh operating environments such as retail outlets, correctional facilities and airports. Fewer interconnects are required, thus saving material and labor costs.
