SIMATRIX NEO II Videomatrix-System


The SIMATRIX NEO II is a powerful video matrix system. It is constructed as a 6U module rack complying with IEC 60297 containing both, the system controls and the switching matrix.

A maximum of 128 video input signals can be switched at will to a maximum of 32 video outputs. Using the SIMATRIX NEO EXT extension bay, 224 video input signals can be processed.

Extension Bay (SIM NEO EXT)

The extension bay is required for systems using more than 128 video inputs.

The extension bay can be equipped with video inputs in steps of 16 to a maximum of 224 video inputs (when using 32 outputs), or to a maximum of 240 video inputs (when using 16 outputs).



The following functions of the SIMATRIX NEO II are programmable:

  • Time and weekday controlled alarm programs
  • On-screen text and time insertion for the user inputs
  • Camera labels (IBM character set, 12 lines of 24 characters each) per camera
  • Group switching (max. 8 cameras
  • Operating stations with switching allocation
  • Operating devices with freely programmable keys
  • Parameter set can be stored as a data fi le (library function)
  • Macro enabled: Macros can be executed using an operating device, time threshold, or alarm contact
