The TLX1280 is a non-blocking, 1280-port matrix switch that provides
complete, any-to-any switching of video, audio, KVM, USB and other AV,
IT and computer peripheral signals. The 42RU tall matrix supports single
and multi-mode fiber-optic connectivity, is scalable from 32 to 1280
ports, and can be configured as a unidirectional 1280×1280 or a
bidirectional 640×640 switch.

The TLX1280 delivers 100 percent uncompressed, 10Gbps signal paths per
port, with the lowest signal latency in the industry. When combined with
TLX extenders, the TLX1280 offers precise, pixel-for-pixel transmission
and switching of UHD, HDR and 4K DCI resolution video — up to 4096 x
2160 resolution, 60Hz frame rate, 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and 30-bit
per pixel color depth — with no visual artifacts, jitter or lost
frames, and instantaneous computer peripheral and control surface

“With the introduction of the TLX1280, Thinklogical now offers the
industry’s widest and most scalable line of secure video distribution
and KVM matrix switches and extenders designed to meet mission-critical
use cases,” said Olivier Bojarski, president of Thinklogical, A Belden
Brand. “Unlike IP-based AV systems, the uncompressed, high-bandwidth
signal stream and flexible switching options found in the TLX1280 make
it the first choice for applications where security, video quality and
smooth peripheral performance are paramount.”

Ideal for complex, large-scale AV applications found in government,
defense, intelligence and homeland security command and control
operations center environments, the TLX1280 is architected to user’s
critical data and maintains isolation between multiple signal paths
through the switch. The TLX1280 is also protocol agnostic, supporting
all common AV and IT interfaces and signal formats. This allows users to
consolidate multiple signals and system switching requirements into a
single chassis for cost savings and improved productivity and

Other demonstrations in the Thinklogical booth at InfoComm include the
Integrated Client Transmitter all-in-one PC client and KVM transmitter
module, System Management Portfolio (SMP) 2 system management software,
and TLX 10G video, audio and USB extenders.

TLX1280 Features:

  • Configurable up to a unidirectional 1280×1280 or a bidirectional
    640×640 matrix
  • Dedicated 10Gbps uncompressed bandwidth per port with no added latency
  • Seamless re-clocking technology maintains signal integrity
  • Protocol agnostic: supports all common AV and IT signal formats
  • Supports single mode and multi-mode fiber optic cabling configurations
  • Completely non-blocking architecture enables true “any-to-any”
  • Extend and switch 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 video, audio, USB and KVM up to 80km
    over fiber
  • MTBF over 100,000 hours
  • Hot-swappable data input/output cards, fan trays, optical modules
  • Redundant and hot-swappable power supplies, with automatic failover
  • Redundant and hot-swappable control cards, with automatic failover
  • Integration with Thinklogical’s System Management Portfolio (SMP) for
    simplified configuration, switch control and system management
  • Expected to achieve IA (information assurance) accreditation;
    certification testing in process.

The TLX1280 is available for order now from Thinklogical and authorized
partners. More information about the TLX1280 can be found at:
