Kramer has introduced a family of three multi-format modular routers as part of its CORE end-to-end solution: the VS 1616D, VS-3232D, and VS-6464D, with matching input and output boards, including DVI, HDMI and dual-link DVI signal boards as well as fiber and Kramer DGKat twisted-pair input and output boards. Highly configurable, the boards can seamlessly connect to Kramer’s CORE accessory devices, including DGKat transmitters and receivers, fiber transmitters, and receivers and video scalers. Kramer’s CORE routers also provide flexibility for infrastructure conversion, supporting copper-based cabling, fiber cabling, or twisted-pair cabling, which can be used simultaneously.
Magenta Research has upgraded its MultiView line. MultiView II enhancements are all designed to make it easier to replicate 1080p resolution (and higher) video at distances to 2,000ft. Improvements include a totally revamped all external configuration scheme with easy-to-use buttons and status LEDs, improved EDID and DDC modes of operation, improved sync control, fourth-pair configuration options for auxiliary data like serial and audio, streamlined connector locations for more intuitive rack mounting, and fully backwards compatibility with all previous MultiView equipment. Products in the new line include MultiView II DVI, T4, STx and XRTx transmitters, plus MultiView II AK600 and AK1200 receivers.
Consisting of six new modules, Multidyne’s new HD-3000-II family provides customers with a choice of LC, ST, FC, or SC connectors, depending on the converter model selected. The company’s HD-3000-II converters are compliant with all SMPTE specifications and are housed in a rugged enclosure that stands up to daily production. The HD-3000-II line offers the flexibility to convert HDSDI signals to optical fiber and output them as single or dual HDSDI feeds. Dual-channel models allow the conversion of two channels, making them ideal for 3D, dual-link HDSDI, or two completely independent HDSDI channels. SD, HD, and 3G signals can be intermixed in any combination. Also, the HD-3000-II converters offer electrical isolation that eliminates ground loop problems.
Pesa’s new PRO-3GSDI-1616 routing switcher supports all common SMPTE and ITU standard serial digital video signals, as well as embedded audio and other ancillary data required for HD-SDI and DVB/ASI broadcast sources. For digital cinema high-definition video distribution requirements, it can be configured to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI in configurations up to 8x8. Other features include support of standard data rates from 50Mbps to 3Gbps and video transports up to 1080p/60. All inputs are auto-equalized. With standard SMPTE formatted outputs, each signal is auto-sensed and reclocked to the appropriate transport stream. Signals can be re-clocked up to 100 meters for 1080p/60. For non-standard formats, re-clocking circuitry can be set to bypass mode. Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of genlock from a black burst or tri-level sync source. Two models are available: the PRO-3GSDI-1616-C and the PRO-3GSDI-1616-PB, which includes a local pushbutton control panel. Both models feature an internal power supply and can have multiple remote control panels added via an Ethernet interface.
Riedel’s MediorNet combines signal transport, routing and signal processing, and conversion into one integrated realtime network solution. Based on a modular system, the frame provides one slot for the processing card, six high-speed card slots (four with two 4.5Gb and two with four 4.25Gb connections to the backplane), and two low-speed card slots (each one with two 125Mb connection to the backplane). All modules and cards are hot swappable, while redundant power supplies guarantee maximum reliability. MediorNet frames can be rackmounted in a number of positions—for example, will all connectors on the front or on the rear side, or recessed to allow cabling from the front but without connectors or cables exceeding the rack’s dimensions—while the IEC connectors can be located front or rear independently from the other cabling.
