Presentation Powerhouse — The DVI-3580a is a high-performance 4K MultiViewer, Presentation Switcher and Scaler.  This unit is an ideal solution for system designers and facility managers facing uncertain requirements from presenters that need AV signal distribution for a diverse range of source devices, resolutions and signal formats.  The DVI-3580a overcomes these challenges through a rich array of input connections that supports all popular AV input signal formats, a range of user-selectable output resolutions and innovative MultiViewer capabilities.  These features provide the power and flexibility needed to adapt to the ever-changing demands of presentation rooms, classrooms, auditoriums, conference rooms, houses of worship, and other media-rich AV environments.

Versatile Video Capabilities — This powerful presentation switcher accepts up to seven (7) video inputs: 4x HDMI (or DVI), 2x DisplayPort and 1x RGB/YPbPr Analog (VGA).  The unit supports a broad range of input signal formats and resolutions up to 4K /60p.  A powerful internal scaling engine provides a range of user-selectable output resolutions up to 3840x2160 /30p, as well as seamless switching(1) of input signals.  The selected input signal is routed to two mirrored outputs, 1x HDMI and 1x HDBaseT™.  The HDBaseT output is POH (Power over HDBaseT) compliant, so a compatible receiver unit may be remotely powered from the DVI-3580a unit over the HDBaseT link.  The MultiViewer function can simultaneously display up to 4x video signals with resolutions up to 4K, which are displayed in seven possible layouts: Single, Double, Triple, Quad 1, Quad 2, Quad 3, or Quad 4.  Any input signal can be displayed in any MultiViewer window.

Advanced Audio Routing — The DVI-3580a features audio embedding as well as de-embedded audio outputs.  Each video input is coupled with an analog stereo audio input connection.  The unit includes three audio outputs: HDMI / HDBaseT embedded audio, 8-channel (7.1) analog audio, and TOSLINK optical audio.  User-adjustable lip-sync correction is provided.

Total Control — The DVI-3580a may be controlled via a variety of options, including LAN (built-in Web GUI or Telnet), RS-232, IR Remote Control, and Front Panel selections.  The Web GUI increases ease of setup and support through many features, including powerful EDID management capabilities.  This allows integrators to select a factory installed EDID, learn the EDID from a connected display, upload EDID files into 7x custom memory slots, or download EDID files from the unit.  These powerful features allow the unit to be seamlessly integrated into any professional AV system.
