The "Pilot" Family of Matrix Switching Systems
The most trusted name in analog switching technology has enhanced its product offerings with the Pilot series of matrix switchers designed for system scalability and ease of expansion. From convenience stores to casinos, there is a Pilot system to suit every application and allow for virtually unlimited growth potential. Although overall capacity has been expanded, system programming has never been easier with an intuitive, internal graphic configurator.
Below is a short description of how the systems differ. Use the left navigation menu to locate product specs and other documentation.
Vicon’s Pilot Ultra is the ideal solution for large-scale systems and distributed switching applications. In conjunction with the Pilot V1599CPU (Central Processing Unit), the Pilot V1599CDU (Central Distribution Unit) can be configured for communication with receivers, keypads and serial devices. Satellite switchers and V1599CDU’s networked with a single V1599CPU, can accommodate analog systems as great as 8192 cameras and 512 monitors, while Pilot’s high-density input card cages help conserve valuable rack space.
Pilot Select systems contain an internal CPU, so that titling, alarm and serial communication are performed directly within the matrix card cage. The remarkable, high-density Pilot Select series can master a system of 256 camera s and 32 monitors from a single card cage. Overall, the Pilot Select is the perfect analog switching solution for most applications and has an overall capacity of up to 512 cameras and 64 monitors.
As a complete solutions provider, Vicon has everything needed for integrated video switching and control systems. Variable speed joystick keypads such as the V1410 and V1411 series allow for total system control from a compact, desktop console. The V1500X-SCCS System Controller with touch-sensitive LCD display controls camera call-up and pan-tilt-zoom functions for any Pilot model, as well as any ViconNet device including the Virtual Matrix Controller (VMC).
External receivers and interface cards are available and data signals are distributed by Vicon’s V1400X-IDL intelligent data-distribution line or V422-VI for Vicoax control. Hard-wired alarm inputs are also easily connected via the alarm interface module, model V1300X-IA.
