Analog Way NatiX (NTX8022A) 8x2 high-resolution scaled native matrix, $9,995 MSRP
What I Like About It:
The Analog Way NatiX is very easy to control using the front control panel or RS232 via a Crestron control system. It's very simple to integrate into the entire project, and can also be controlled via TCP/IP and RS232 using software from Analog Way. This unit will take any input format — composite, S-video, component, or VGA — and send the scaled high-resolution output to either or both outputs. The transition of the switch is silky smooth with no sync issues. It also includes a really cool Hi-Resolution Logo inserter and frame store function.
I Would Change:
Any custom requirements can be engineered by adding other Analog Way products. For example, there's an option to add an SDTV “broadcast-quality” composite output to the NatiX. However, a “consumer-grade” composite video option that would be around the same cost as the Analog Way Power 1024s would also be nice. I think it would also be helpful if the unit had more than just two outputs, such as an 8x4, 8x8, or even as high as a 32x32 matrix.
Where I Used It:
I installed the NatiX at the Resort at Redhawk Events Center and Banquet Facility in Sparks, NV. This large, single-room facility, which is used for banquets, weddings, and corporate functions.
