IDK MSD Series AV Switches – Industry leading “hands-off interoperability”

MSD switches are designed to enable quick and trouble-free installation and operation

Since introducing the first MSD, IDK has continued to innovate, refine and enhance their go-to, AV problem solvers. MSD switches offer the industry’s best AV port-to-port interoperability and spec’ing them in assures that source, aux processing and display equipment all function seamlessly together. Scan conversion, multi-format inputs, audio de/embed, diverse control options, EDID emulation, status indication & control, HDCP status & management, input / output EQ, built in test pattern generator, and registered-command service are all “save the day” features. MSD switches are highly configurable, but carefully refined factory default settings and auto-adaptive features enable out of the box operation. IDK’s design assistance program ensures success for new adaptors in every step from system concept through customer acceptance.
