Our History

Lightware is a leading manufacturer of DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort matrix switchers, signal extenders and accessories for the professional AV market. Our goal is to recognize industry needs and develop performance-rich products of the highest quality by continuously consulting with integrators, rental technicians and design engineers.

25G Hybrid Technology. 25G Hybrid Signal Management introduces a completely new concept to the AV industry. Innovative engineering and design has resulted in a unique new technology that allows managing, switching and extending of digital and analog video, audio, Ethernet, and control with a new and inventive Multilayer technology. Designed to deliver exceptionally high resolution image quality and 24/7 reliability, the 25G Hybrid technology sets a new standard in the professional AV industry.

High Fidelity Signal Management. All of Lightware’s products utilize pixel by pixel signal transmission from A to B. No latency and no compression ensure the signal keeps its original quality. Lightware attains this through such proprietary technologies as Pixel Accurate Reclocking and Single Fiber Technology.

Research and Development. Lightware incorporates many professional features developed by our R+D centre in Budapest. These features are Lightware’s own Intellectual Property and some have now become industry standards for competing digital video products. Lightware products are solely developed and manufactured in the European Union, Hungary.


Trainings and Education. Lightware Visual Engineering is conducting educational seminars designed to provide an insight into the specifics, pitfalls and best practices when integrating the major digital video formats. Lightware trainers and engineers respond to questions, and show a deep insight behind the digital standards.


Pro-series matrix routers. The technology built into our Pro-series DVI matrix routers breaks many standard limitations; allowing 60 meters DVI cable on input, Advanced EDID Management, Pixel Accurate Reclocking, LAN, RS-232, RS-422 control, fiber cable powering and more. All signals from Single-Link to the highest resolution Dual-Link DVI can be managed by Lightware Pro-series routers which deliver the ultimate performance in signal conditioning, retransmission and easy system integration.


Hybrid Modular Design. Lightware’s MX series router frames and I/O board family incorporate broad signal compatibility, precise switching, control, troubleshooting and signal measurement. AV professionals can choose various I/O sizes, video signal types and transport media options thanks to our Hybrid Modular Design. The MX series matrix backplanes are able to switch 12.8 Gigabit per second data rates allowing transportation of HDMI 1.4, 4K UHD, 3D and DisplayPort 1.1 video signals.
