25G Hybrid Signal Management introduces a completely new concept to the AV industry. Innovative engineering and design has resulted in a unique new technology that allows managing, switching and extending digital and analog video, audio, Ethernet and control in a new and inventive way. Designed to deliver exceptionally high resolution image quality and 24/7 reliability, 25G Hybrid technology sets a new standard in the professional AV industry. 

Incredible speed of 25 Gigabits per second - no video router ever built can carry 25 Gigabit per second per port.   Advanced audio functions make this technology unique.The 25G Hybrid routers has 3 different audio layers: Embedded Audio, Forward Audio and Return audio.
Multilayer Switching provides the flexibility and freedom of independent signal switching per media layer.   Various control signals are also handled by the 25G Hybrid routers such as RS-232, Ethernet, KVM and IR.

25G is not only a matrix switcher or router. It’s a full signal path infrastructure from end to end. The Hybrid hardware and software design allows switching and transmission of all signals over one single fiber or CAT cable in one single router.

Lightware’s 25G Hybrid matrix is the world’s first fully compatible HDMI 1.4 matrix switcher that also provides HEC and ARC functions, supports 4K resolutions and full 3D formats. 25G Hybrid has 8 separate media layers, giving the rise to the expression: Multilayer switching.

Lightware has re-invented the term ’matrix switch’. We don’t only handle inputs and outputs, we have added a third dimension, the Media Layers. Inside a 25G Hybrid router there are as many media layers as signal types. This means that there are as many individual routers as signal formats being incorporated.


 Room and User Management

As the maximal crosspoint area in the 25G Hybrid routers is a large switching plane, we have introduced ’Room Management’. A room could be a conference room, meeting room or network operation center (NOC) – in essence, whatever you want it to be.

All these rooms can be programmed with their own sources and destinations, but also can share some resources if required. If, for example, you want to prohibit an operator in one room from accidentally making switches in another, the maximal crosspoint area can be divided in smaller virtual matrices called ’rooms’.



Graphical User Interface

25G Hybrid matrices have a built-in JAVA-based graphical user interface which eases system control, setup, maintenance and troubleshooting. It is accessible via LAN, RS-232 and the front panel touch screen.



The components used in this technology are industrial grade and typically designed for the telecom industry. All printed circuit boards are gold plated in order to achieve reliable and stable hardware performance. This technique results in better soldering and contact performance and eliminates corrosion problems caused by salt and humidity in naval military environments.   All boards that contain active electronic components are hot swappable. The front load design – except for I/O boards – makes it easy to replace failed components. All fans and Power supplies can also be replaced in a simple movement.
The 25G matrix routers are designed for 24/7 operations and optional redundant CPU and Power supplies can be also added for further reliability.   The 25G CPU stores the settings of all boards and send backups for the second CPU. If the first CPU fails the second takes over automatically with the same settings. With the redundant power



The 25G Hybrid routers has three main components. To configure the best 25G solution for a particular application you need to choose a frame, need to find out what media layers you will need to use for your application and then populate the ready frame with the input and output boards. The main point of this structure is that you only need to pay for what you need and won’t have extra unused functions. To find the best configuration is very important so our sales and support teams are happy to help you.
