With HD finally becoming commonplace for most of us here on this forum, I'm now looking at my unused but ready to go Marquee switcher as a possible option for use in my system.
But I'd like to know a few things about it before I start reconfiguring the system.
The unit's main output is RGB. The unit automatically transcodes the output from
any input card to RGB.
I presume that the unit is capable of passing full bandwidth HD signals without a problem, provided that they're in RGB format?
The unit has up to nine input cards. Mine has eight. All but one are the RGB type, RGB500 type (better bandwidth version), and an RGB pass-through module.
In theory, a Moome DVI/component input card will work in a switcher. Has this been tested?
I have a Moome DVI/component input card. I may transfer it to the switcher if
it's known to work.
Is the transcoding from other formats (composite, S-video, maybe component) done on the card or in the switcher itself?
The answers to these questions may be important to me in terms of how I reconfigure my system for simpler operation. As the switcher has the most
input switching options of any product I own, it seems like it'll be the best
switching option for me to use, IF it can handle HD component signals.
