The VXP-82 is a perfect solution for large meeting spaces and lecture halls. The all-in-one control processor and presentation switcher comes with a built-in 8×2 multi-format video switcher and powerful processing for control over all of the systems in the room. Easily handling video signals from multiple sources ¾ including HDBaseT support ¾ the system also delivers audio with a mic input and built-in amplifier.
