VX Router Series
The worlds first fiber optic, non-blocking, 6.25 Gbps
Video and Peripheral Router!
Thinklogical’s exceptionally resiliant VX routers switch virtually any desktop device and range
in size from 40 x 40 up to 320 x 320. Providing mission critical depenability the VX Router series
provide unrivalled signal integrity, and being protocol agnostic you can route and switch DVI, SDI
HD-SDI, Dual-link DVI, Dual-link SDI, USB 1.1, USB 2.0, audio, the possiblites are endless.
Unlike traditional routing technology , the VX Router series are true non-blocking matrix switches
and leverage bi-directional signal capability. In addition, the massive bandwidth provides pristine
signal integrity, allowing for uncompressed video, with no frame dropping. Designed with our user’s
needs in mind the router offers a variety of interface options providing all the functions and features
essential in mission crital environments. Thinklogical’s advanced fiber optic technology has a proven
track record with hundreds of installations worldwide, making the VX Router the ideal choise for those
who need a scalable, flexible, and secure solution.

The Logical Solution - Routing Video and Peripheral Signals
The VX 320 is a high performance modular router and non-blocking matrix
switch for complete, end-to-end routing of video and peripheral signals over
multi-mode or single-mode fiber optic cable. This highly reliable and resilient
router is expandable from 16 x 16 up to 320 x 320, which allows for flexible
deployment configurations. In addition, the 320 offers rich integration with
Thinklogical’s Velocity line of KVM and Video extenders. This high level of
integration streamlines resources enabling improved productivity and
ultimately lowers costs.

VX Router Series - VX 320
The VX 320 is a 6.25 Gbps Router Designed for Mission Critical Applications
with the Ability to Route and Switch up to 320 x 320 Signals
Designed to improve operational efficiency and maximize resources, the VX 320 offers
unrivalled scalability, signal integrity, and control flexibility. The highly robust router
design supports advanced, real time applications in environments such as broadcast,
post-production, government, medical, military, and corporate. In addition, the
unmatched 6.25 Gbps signal capability supports SD-SDI, HD-SDI, SMPTE digital video
formats, as well as optical formats and other high data rate signals.
The System – Hot-Swappable and Redundant
The inspired modular approach of the VX 320 allows for all critical system components including power supplies,
cooling fans and pluggable optics (SFP+) to be hot-swappable, thus minimizing business impact in the unlikely
event a component should fail. The hot-swappable I/O boards also provide excellent in-service expansion
capabilities in convenient steps of 16, thus allowing the VX 320 to be reconfigured without interrupting signal
processing by powering down the router. In addition, the dual redundant power supplies ensure continuous,
uninterrupted power.
The VX 320 is controlled via a dedicated external Linux CPU (pc) module (which can be provided via Thinklogical
or the end-user). This allows for customization as well as ease of control and administration with access provided
via a network connection (browser), or a serial port for 3rd party controller integration (such as Crestron, AMX or
home-spun interfaces). Moreover, the VX 320 is equipped with industry-standard LC type fiber connectors and
offers unprecedented integration with Thinklogical’s Velocity Series of fiber optic KVM and video transmitters
and receivers.

VX Router Series - VX 320
True 320 x 320 Non-Blocking Fiber Matrix Architecture
The VX Router series provides users with non-blocking switching capability. The obvious advantage to this is greater
switching flexibility in one chassis, allowing for multiple input signals to be available at one output. In addition, this
configuration offers even greater flexibility than a standard non-blocking matrix switch, since the fiber optic links
support bi-directional capabilities, ultimately switching up to 640 signals. The VX 320 is also configurable with a mix of
multi-mode and single mode versions of I/O cards, which supports both short and long haul applications.
Comprehensive Control Features
The VX 320 is engineered with a range of innovative
Thinklogical control features designed to simplify
operation in mission critical visualization
environments. Key features include, advanced GUI
options which provide convenient user interface to
the router from remote locations.
The GUI allows for easy and intuitive setup and control
of the switching between source computer or video
entities and user display destinations such as
desktops, theaters, conference rooms, editing suites,
control consoles, video walls, biomedical imaging
arenas, satellite mapping, etc. In addition, single video
sources may be multi-cast (one to more than one) or
broadcast (one to all) to desired destinations.
Macro presets may be created for saving and recalling
commonly used input and output ties. A dedicated
preview output option provides a view of all available
input signals before switching to a live output. This
eliminates the possibility of these signals being
inadvertently routed to a live program during a
presentation and allows for program outputs to
remain available for signal distribution.
Studio GUI Option
Enhanced diagnostics and alarms
The VX 320 provides extensive real-time monitoring
and diagnostics of the internal product operating
temperature, power supply voltages, I/O fiber links,
fans, and other critical functions of the router. LED
indicators provide active and fault monitoring, while
the system alarms can be configured to trigger an
external control system, or generate snmp traps.
