KUMO 1616-12G offers 16x 12G-SDI inputs and 16x 12G-SDI outputs.
Dubbed as flexible and cost-efficient, the 12G-SDI routing is for high resolution, high frame rate and deep color productions.
AJA Video Systems introduced KUMO 3232-12G and KUMO 1616-12G, two compact 12G-SDI routers. KUMO 3232-12G offers 32x 12G-SDI inputs and 32x 12G-SDI outputs, and the KUMO 1616-12G offers 16x 12G-SDI inputs and 16x 12G-SDI outputs.
The hardware supports large format resolutions, and high frame rates 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 compact physical form of AJA’s KUMO 3232 and KUMO 1616 routers, adding a new USB port for configuring IP addresses via AJA’s eMini-Setup software. Multi-port gang-routing also means the new 12G-SDI models are 8K ready.
To recap, the key features include:
- 12G-SDI inputs and outputs for up to 4K/UltraHD support at 60p
- Small, portable 2RU (3232) and 1RU (1616) form factors
- Single cable support for streamlined 4K/UltraHD signal routing
- Redundant power supply option
“4K/UltraHD, HFR and deep color workflows have introduced new challenges for professionals and facilities by requiring more bandwidth, so we’ve expanded our line of KUMO routers to the latest 12G-SDI standard,” shared Nick Rashby, company President.
KUMO 3232-12G will be available July for $3995 and KUMO 1616-12G in June for $2495.
