High capacity 12G-SDI signal routing for increased bandwidth and higher-resolutions
September 13, 2019
Amsterdam, Netherlands, IBC Conference, Stand 7.C25 (September 13, 2019) — Today at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam, AJA Video Systems unveiled KUMO 6464-12G, a new SDI router featuring 64x 12G-SDI inputs and 64x 12G-SDI outputs for high quality, cost-effective signal routing. KUMO 6464-12G suits a range of broadcast, production, post, and proAV environments and allows professionals to take advantage of the scalability, security, and increased bandwidth that 12G-SDI provides.
“Interest in 12G-SDI is surging among live production and post professionals as workflows grow more complex with increasing adoption of UltraHD, HDR and even 8K. The positive response to our KUMO 1616-12G and KUMO 3232-12G routers reinforced the need for increased capacity 12G routing, so naturally, we’re excited to announce KUMO 6464-12G with 64 inputs and 64 outputs, especially for environments where compact size and substantial routing capacity are critical,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
With KUMO 6464-12G, professionals can easily route and control video with embedded audio to/from BNC connections with auto reclocking of SDI rates. The KUMO routers can be configured for ganged dual and quad-port routing, so that users can easily combine multiple inputs and outputs for Dual Link, 4K, UltraHD and 8K workflows, enabling seamless routing of uncompressed, compressed, or Raw 4K signals throughout a facility.
