SDI Protection Switch

The D5PSW accepts 2 SDI inputs, Primary and Secondary, and automatically switches to the Secondary input if the Primary input is not present or is not a valid SDI signal. An SDI input is considered valid if a proper SMPTE 259 stream is present. A LED indicator is Green if both Primary and Secondary are present, flashing green if the Primary is present but the Secondary is not present, and Orange if the Secondary is present but the Primary is not. The D5PSW has 3 SDI outputs.
