MX9x9DVI-Slim is a DVI matrix switcher with nine inputs and nine outputs. The 1.2 inch depth, aluminum alloy body and fan-less design makes it ideal for many space and noise sensitive applications. In space constrained systems, the matrices can even be mounted behind other rack-mounted equipment.

The frames are equipped with gold plated screw-locking DVI connectors, dust-proof and also lockable Neutrik Ethercon and high current Speakon power connectors which ensure a robust connection at all times. All outputs supply 500 mA continuous current on DVI +5 V pin to power long distance fiber optical transmitters like Lightware 
DVI-OPT-TX110. Thanks to the switchers' non-blocking architecture, any input can be switched to any or more outputs without switching delay or frame latency.

MX9x9DVI-Slim can be controlled via a built-in website, or via LAN or RS-232 using Lightware's Matrix Controller software. All matrices provide Lightware's Advanced EDID Management feature, making it possible to emulate 100 EDIDs, 50 of which are factory preset and 50 are user programmable. The Matrix Controller software contains Lightware's built-in Advanced EDID Editor, which provides the following functions:

  • Function 1: Advanced EDID Editor can translate the binary data into readable english format, which contains every information stored in the EDID data structure and the optional extensions. The report provides a quick and easily understandable overview of all the available settings.
  • Function 2: Edit or create a new EDID. All settings, which are defined in the standards, can be edited on an intuitive user interface. The editing of additional CEA extensions is also supported.
  • Function 3: Save the modified or created EDIDs in different compatible file formats or upload them immediately to the memory of MX9x9DVI-Slim.
  • Function 4: Download EDID, open EDID from file or view the EDID of your display. There are three options to open an EDID: they can be downloaded from MX9x9DVI-Slim, it can be opened from file and they can be fetched from a display device actually connected to the matrix.
  • Function 5: A wizard-like interface is also included which makes it possible to create new EDIDs with the most common features just by a few clicks. You only have to specify the desired video format and let the program calculate every other parameter automatically. 4 step Easy EDID Creator Adjusting detailed video parameters Audio channel
