LAS VEGAS – Seatronx has introduced the digital matrix switching command control system (SCC).

The system not only allows operators to control individual or multiple displays including power on/off, input selection, brightening, dimming and night mode view, but also is fully customizable with optional modules for added functionality. These accessory modules let users incorporate KVM mouse, keyboard and touchscreen switching; vessel monitoring applications; NMEA data viewing; camera control; and environmental control such as lighting, shades or any other asset onboard.

It starts with a 7-in. digital touchscreen panel and compact blackbox processor that includes a built-in Powered over Ethernet network to simplify installation and programming. Featuring a 533 MHz CPU and 128 MB of flash memory, the SCC-PRO-3 processor has expansion capabilities. With a built-in RF transceiver and support for wireless bi-directional communications using ZigBee technology, the processor can provide users real-time feedback from supported Seatronx devices.

Eliminating the need for complicated video matrix switchers, the new system is engineered to work seamlessly with Seatronx VSRT series displays, the company said.

One-touch commands let users take control of individual or multiple displays from any helm, bridge, or control center.

Accessory modules include the SCC-KVM-8X8 for control of up to eight displays or multiple trackball or keyboard devices, or the SCC-VM-9 modular video switching matrix that allows up to nine input cards and nine output cards to distribute video from all onboard computers and black box processors.
