Kramer Matrix Switcher Output

The Kramer Matrix Switcher module allows you to control Kramer Matrix Switchers from X-Pert Playout. This plug-in is also optional.


X-Pert Playout supports the entire series of Kramer matrix switchers. They provide switching between 16, 12, 10, 8, 6, or 4 video and balanced/unbalanced audio and video inputs to 16, 12, 10, 8, 6 or 4 outputs (video and audio). The matrices are controlled via RS-232 and/or RS485/422 communication ports. Just select the appropriate COM Port. For more detailed information about various Kramer matrix switchers, please, visit

TIP (!) Use the Remote mode to send commands to the Kramer Matrix server. Thus, you could control one matrix from several X-Pert Playout channels simultaneously.

NOTE: This plug-in also supports all Kramer switchers that are protocol 2000 compatible, such as Kramer VS-1201xl, VS-1001xl, VS-801xl, VS-601xl, VS-401xl and VS-1211, VS-1011, VS-811, VS-611, VS-411. They provide switching between 12, 10, 8, 6 or 4 video and balanced/unbalanced audio inputs to one output (video and audio).

NOTE: Please, check your switcher manual for instructions on how to change the control protocol, or contact X-Pert Support team for further assistance on chat button, via e-mail at or phone +359 8 77 66 33 51
