NAB 2017: Utah Scientific Launches Hybrid Router for Next-Gen IP Signals and SDI
Utah Scientific introduced its new 400 Series 3 hybrid digital router, a flexible platform designed to accommodate the next-generation SMPTE ST-2110 and SMPTE 2022-7/6/5 IP formats, along with 3G SDI, analog HD and SD, and audio formats including analog, digital AES3, MADI, TDM, and AES67 all in a common frame.
“With all the excitement surrounding studio video over IP and the next-generation SMPTE 2110 standard, as well as the need to address the reality of everyday SDI workflows for some time to come, the 400 Series 3 hybrid platform is the perfect choice for a mixed environment,” says Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. “With built-in cross conversion and the ability to upgrade in manageable blocks, you can convert your infrastructure at the pace your facility transitions, protecting your investment at all times. The platform will also continue to evolve as new signal formats are introduced, providing a truly future-proof solution.”
The 400 Series 3 offers the flexibility of 288 I/Os of standard SDI signals with in-frame conversion of all signals to SMPTE 2110 or 2022-7/6/5 IP and vice versa. The router also handles all major digital and analog audio formats, features advanced signal processing for embedding and de-embedding, and is backed by the industry’s only no-fee 10-year warranty.
