Overview Route66 – Video Matrix

Route66 Video Router is a perfect solution for studio infrastructure, advanced OB Vans and live productions. It can be used as a centralized video, audio and data router with Mux22 or Repeat48 connected as stageboxes providing the required I/O in multiple remote locations. Thanks to local I/O Route66 can be used as a standalone video router. It can be also combined with Optocore audio interfaces, creating one elegant and cost effective solution.  

Route66 video matrix can be controlled from Optocore Control software, external hardware or 3rd party software control.
