Knox Video has teamed with Aurora Multimedia on the expansion of their Chameleon series of matrix switchers. This revolutionary product integrates a touch panel/control system (TPC7) into a matrix switch, making full system control possible from the rack location, or from virtually anywhere through a web interface.

Two years ago, Knox broke new ground in large venue video signal management by integrating a widescreen video preview monitor into the front panel of their modular Chameleon series routers. The Chameleon has always been the preeminent choice for these applications because of its modular design that allows for in-field servicing and upgrades. Now with the TPC7 integrated into the chassis, the Chameleon offers not only multi-format input preview but also the enhanced control capabilities offered by Aurora Multimedia’s suite of control devices. This provides an effective solution for system control that minimizes the rack space that multiple devices would require, all at a price well below traditional solutions.

Knox will be offering a rack mount and wall mount version of the highly integrated panel to be coupled with their switching products. The TPC7 makes an ideal solution for the education, boardroom or house of worship markets.

The TPC7 utilizes the same open source, non-proprietary programming that Aurora users are familiar with. So if you can build a web page, you can build a control system! No special programming classes required.

TPC7 based systems comes packed with a full complement of control ports including:

  • Serial (1x) RS-232/422/485
  • IR (2x) Outputs (1x) Input
  • Relays (2x) C-Type
  • I/O (2x) I/O’s
  • LAN (2x) 10/100 LAN Auto MDX
  • Audio (1x) Stereo Line In
  • (1x) Stereo Line Out

    (1x) Front panel speaker

    (1x) Front panel microphone

  • Expansion Ports (1x) USB 2.0 Host
  • (1x) Micro SD
