Traditional routing switchers assume that all sources and destinations are of the same format. If an implementation requires different formats, then peripheral hardware must be employed to perform the video processing functions before the routing switcher can perform its function.
A URS accepts almost any source format, converts it, and sends it to any output display.
The Christie® URS is an all-in-one matrix switcher that accepts multiple sources in any format (analog composite to digital 4K) and seamlessly routes any of these sources to any of 8 user-configurable outputs, each of which can be independently configured for any analog or digital output format.
The Christie URS performs all the processing to match the source to the output, including scaling, aspect ratio, color-space, and frame rate conversion repeats. Normally, these functions require additional equipment and complex, restrictive control systems; however, the URS simplifies the entire process, saving you time, money and resources.
