Elan Composite Video Controller (V8)
The predecessor to the Elan V8, the Z-880, was a favorite of ours for years. The V8 takes all that was great and brings it totally up to date with new features and even better circuitry. The V8 is an 8 input/ 8 output composite video switcher that can handle a wide variety of applications, such as residential security camera systems. Our system installers love it.
- Eight input, eight output composite video switcher
- Great add-on for enhanced Elan Multi-Room Controller video switching
- Perfect for security camera switching and monitoring
- IR and RS-232 controllable to ensure system compatibility
|The V8 is ELAN’s next-generation Composite VideoController. |
Building on the legacy of the Z•880, the new V8 Composite Video Controller continues the tradition of outstanding performance, versatility and reliability by adding even more must-have, system-enhancing features.
The 8-in by 8-out V8 is the perfect video switcher for routing composite video signals to VIA! TouchPanels throughout the house. Add a V8 to a S128P Multi-Room Controller to keep its component videoswitching capabilities reserved for hi-def sources. Or add a V8 to an S66A to turn it into an A/V controller. The V8 is also ideally suited for residentialor commercial CCTV security camera applications.
This “next generation” composite video switcher incorporates new features that make it even more powerful and flexible than its best-selling predecessor. Added are eight buffered video loop outputs for easy expansion or source sharing, RS-232 DB-9 IN and THRU ports for easy serial control, and VIA!Net IN and THRU jacks for quick ELAN product integration and control. The “active” IR port even supplies power to ELAN IR Sensors.
Up to four V8s can be linked together to create an 8-in by 32-out composite video switching matrix. Unit ID switches make multi-V8 setup a breeze and a front-panel LED display makes it easy to track zones and sources for setup and troubleshooting.
The V8 can also route SPDIF Digital Audio over coaxial cable. Pair it up with a V85 and you can distribute HD Component Video and SPDIF Digital Audio to 8 zones with just 2 cables runs (CAT-5e & Coax).
