It can be upgraded and expanded “on-line” by changing the number of removable modules.

ONYX is controlled either locally via front panel buttons and LCD display or through numerous Ogden control panels or supporting control applications.

ONYX control system can perform SWITCH, CHECK, LOCK and SALVO. Redundant control modules are used to ensure stability and reliability. If the primary module fails, the backup module can be activated automatically or manually. Additionally, ONYX is compatible with multiple control protocols for many applications.

ONYX is equipped with reliable power and cooling systems. Redundant power supply is available in 2RU frames and above. 1RU frame uses one power supply. 2RU frames and above are equipped with a modular cooling system which can be replaced or upgraded “on-line”. 1RU frame is equipped with a fixed cooling assembly.

It is ideally suited for applications in broadcasting and television, professional A/V, video conferencing, and monitoring.
