The MSC-XE1616S uses the AES-3id standard which defines a 75-ohm BNC electrical variant of AES3. This can use the same cabling, patching and infrastructure as analog video, or it can be digital switcher designed for AES data rates and a 700mv to 1V input output interconnect. The AES-3id standard is also sometimes referred to as SMPTE 276M.
