MAT 288 is a programmable diversity matrix combiner.
Take up to 8 pairs of antenna and combine into 1 or 2 pairs. Or 2 lots of 4 pairs into 2 separate pairs.
This unique device allows to combining RF coming from 8 areas (a couple of diversity feeds) on the fly thanks to a matrix of solid-state switches. It is designed to have the greatest reliability, with a redundant power supply (AC and DC). All operations can be remote with Ethernet. Typical applications are a production center where a control room has to work with several STUDIOs also at the same time or a THEATRE that needs from time to time to combine the main stage, foyer, or lobby. Also, your ENG or OB-Van facility will benefit from this freedom to manage different RF areas. This flexibility along with the possibility to work in wideband allows also an easy deployment of your wireless audio infrastructure and also to optimizes your overall CAPEX (i.e. sharing resources like wireless microphones).
