Routing Switcher


Powerful 4K and 8K routing with 12G-SDI compatibility across all inputs and outputs.

Configure a matrix of up to 16 x 16. 12G-SDI compatibility across all inputs and outputs. Optional AVDL functionality enables smooth changeover without noise or disruption.

12G-SDI Support

Conventional 3G-SDI routing switchers require 4 crosspoints to input and output 4K video. With 12G-SDI, 4K can be carried over a single crosspoint. The MFR-1000 also determines the type of SDI input automatically—no need to worry about what signals are supplied.

AVDL Functionality

AVDL functionality* can be added to 8 outputs, enabling smooth changeover without noise or disruption. Produces clean switched output for video input within the adjustment range.

  • Optional

Solid Performance

Multi-format video input and output

Support for 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI and DVB-ASI input and output. No need to worry about signal formats, thanks to auto signal detection.

Outstanding redundancy

As core system components, FOR-A routing switchers can incorporate redundancy to ensure nonstop operation in case of problems.

GUI-based configuration

Built-in webserver enables immediate setup without installing software on external devices. Via this interface, settings can also be configured in an offline environment.

Versatile crosspoint control

Besides typical crosspoint switching, the unit enables a variety of crosspoint control.
- Salvo
- Take
- Link
- Error-proofing (Inhibit, Lock)

SNMP monitoring

Can be integrated into an SNMP monitoring system. Enables monitoring of various operational states, such as power, fan, CPU status and crosspoint errors. If system failure and recovery occur, SNMP traps are sent to managers.

Remote control units

10 control units are available to suit specific applications.(for the detailed information, please see the Lineup .)

Front control panel

Front panel enables menu display and notification of alarm details.

Interface expansion units

Two types of interface expansion units are available to suit specific applications.
- MFR-TALM: Tally Manager

Connectivity with other products

Remote-controllable through the Ethernet or serial ports. Compatibility with common protocols such as TSL and Harris enables tally linkage or auto source name tracking for crosspoint switching. As well as our exclusive interface to the FOR-A line of HVS production switchers and standalone multi viewers.
