The IRIS1608 is the worlds first dedicated marine Hi-Def video switcher and features eight camera inputs which can be switched to the HDMI output to display realtime video from your high definition Iris cameras on a suitable chart plotter or HD TV.

Compatible with all chart plotters that feature a digital input*, TV’s with HDMI inputs and other HDMI enabled media, the IRIS1608 comprises a rugged control box and a low-profile, compact, waterproof keypad. The control box is installed safely out of sight so there are no unsightly cables whilst the keypad provide a simple, elegant control interface.

The 1608 is shipped with a keypad included and there is a second port on the control box so you can connect an additional pad should you need to switch video from multiple positions.

Our new switcher keypads are now shipped with a built in RJ45 socket, which means installers no longer have to spend time extending cables. Simply run your own CAT5/CAT6 cable as required**.

The keypad measures a mere 74mm² and is UV stabilised. Our switchers have been designed exclusively for the boating market and thereʼs nothing else like them!

*Interfaces directly with HDMI inputs. For other digital inputs such as DVI / HD-SDI adapters are available. Contact Iris for further details.

**Use shielded CAT5 when extending cables.
