Highlighted features

Lightware Visual Engineering has recently upgraded to a new series of digital video/audio routing and extension systems. These products are designed according to our well known philosophy of ‘High Fidelity Signal Management’. The 2011 series router frames and I/O board family incorporate new features, broader signal compatibility, more precise switching, control, troubleshooting and signal measurement. The router frames start from 9x9 I/O size and increase up to 80x80. AV professionals can choose between various I/O sizes, video signal types and transport media options according to their system requirements thanks to our Hybrid Modular Design.

Lightware hybrid modular routers incorporate 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.
