knox Video Technologies was founded in 1975 and is widely recognized as a pioneer in the design and manufacture of logic-based television studio equipment. The first Knox products were character generators for live broadcast titling. Gaining a reputation for value and ease of use, Knox character generators were quickly embraced by both the educational and industrial video markets.

Knox introduced a low-cost matrix routing switcher in the early 1990s to address the explosive demands of the professional/industrial video market for an alternative to unwieldy patch bays. In the decade since, the Knox line of routing switchers has grown from a single 8 by 8 model to an array of cost-effective, user-friendly audio and video routing and distribution systems that range in size from 4x1 to 1024x512. Knox routers are now used in all market segments—broadcast, prosumer, industrial, presentation, high-end residential—with the ability to route a variety of video signal types including NTSC, PAL, Y/C, RGB and YUV Component, analog HDTV, RGBHV, VGA, and SDI, as well as digital audio and multi-level analog balanced and unbalanced audio at levels up to +24dB with optional built-in intput sensitivity trims and volume and tone controls.
Knox has consistently remained focused on its original mission: to deliver professional equipment at affordable prices. If there is a secret to Knox’s longevity it is in this simple mantra:
"Make reliable products that work well, support them consistently, and value the relationships you have with your customers."
