SW RGBHV Switcher Series
Two, Four, and Six Input Analog RGBHV and Stereo Audio Switchers
Common Features
DESCRIPTION
• Inputs: Two, four, and six input analog RGBHV models with or without stereo
The Extron SW RGBHV Series are active analog RGBHV switchers using BNC connectors. There
are six switchers in the series. The SW2 RGBHV, SW4 RGBHV, and SW6 RGBHV are two,
four, and six input, one output RGBHV video-only switchers, respectively. The SW2 RGBHV A,
SW4 RGBHV A and SW6 RGBHV A are also two, four, and six input, one output RGBHV
switchers with audio.
audio; video on BNC connectors; audio on captive screw connectors
• Output: One set of female BNC connectors for video; one captive screw
connector for audio
• Compatible with RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs, HDTV, component video,
S-video, and composite video
All models allow multiple RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs, RGB source inputs with composite
video/sync or component video with stereo audio sources to be switched to one compatible
display device. With 350 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth, the SW RGBHV A Series switchers
can support a wide array of high resolution signals.
• 350 MHz (-3 dB) RGB video bandwidth
• Autoswitching capabilities
• Automatically detects which inputs have an active signal and reports this
information through the RS-232 port
The SW RGBHV A Series include captive screw audio connectors for balanced and unbalanced
stereo audio sources. They also include adjustable gain and attenuation, allowing users to set
the individual input audio levels, providing no significant difference in volume when switching
between sources. All of the switchers can be controlled via the front panel buttons or through
a 9-pin remote control port. The 9-pin female D connector enables RS-232 control, as well as
contact closure control. They are also compatible with the Extron KP 6 Keypad Remote Control
and the Extron IR 102 Kit IR remote.
• RS-232 and contact closure remote control
• Internal international power supply
• Audio input gain and attenuation

Each switcher is user-configurable for manual or autoswitching modes. The autoswitch function
can be enabled or disabled via a toggle switch on the back panel. Autoswitching allows any
input of the switcher to be selected automatically when the switcher detects a sync signal.
Two input models are half rack width, 1U metal enclosures that fit into an optional Extron
1U Universal Rack Shelf Kit. Four and six input models are 1U, full rack width and ship with
rack ears.
