AJA Video Systems Unveils KUMO 3232-12G Router

KUMO 3232-12G offers increased capacity for larger configurations while maintaining a compact 2RU profile with support for 12G-SDI/6G-SDI/3G-SDI/1.5G-SDI with 32x 12G-SDI inputs and 32x 12G-SDI outputs.

KUMO 12G-SDI routers support large format resolutions, high frame rate (HFR) and deep color formats, while reducing cable runs when transporting 4K/UltraHD over SDI. The routers offer network-based and/or physical control, and mirror the physical form of AJA’s production-proven KUMO 3232 and KUMO 1616 routers, with a new USB port for configuring IP addresses via AJA’s eMini-Setup software. Built to the same quality standards as all AJA KUMO products, KUMO 3232-12G is the ideal choice for any situation where a balance of size and capacity are critical such as mid-sized post facilities and mobile trucks.

Features

  • 32x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs
  • Small, portable form factor
  • Single cable support for 4K/UltraHD
  • Redundant power supply option
  • Eight salvos per router
  • Embedded web server for remote control
  • USB port to easily configure the router IP address
  • 5-year warranty

KUMO compact SDI routers provide powerful signal control and support full broadcast specifications over 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI, with quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications. The super-compact 1RU and 2RU and 4RU formats are just a few inches deep, making them a perfect fit for any broadcast, production, or postproduction environment, from mobile sports trucks and edit suites, through to corporate video installations or live theatrical A/V rigs.

For 12G-SDI, look to KUMO 3232-12G for 32x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs or KUMO 1616-12G for 16x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs.

For 3G-SDI look to KUMO 6464 for 64x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 3232 for 32x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 1616 for 16x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs and KUMO 1604 for 16x 3G-SDI inputs and 4x 3G-SDI outputs.

KUMO’s powerful cross-point routing matrix maps any input to any number of outputs without the need for additional patch panels or distribution amplifiers. Use KUMO as an affordable distribution amplifier by routing a single input to all outputs. Used in this way, a KUMO 3232-12G can take the place of multiple distribution amplifiers.

As 8K emerges and 4K/UltraHD workflows continue to gain ground, KUMO routers can meet the rising challenge. KUMO 12G-SDI routers offer single-link cable simplicity for 4K/UltraHD and with a simple setting change, KUMO 12G-SDI routers can be configured for ganged dual-link or quad-link grouping allowing users to group together multiple inputs and outputs for 8K workflows and similarly, KUMO 3G-SDI routers for dual or quad-link 4K/UltraHD workflows. This allows routing of raw or 8K or 4K/UltraHD signals throughout a production, live event, OB truck or post facility.
