Utah Scientific To Showcase Hybrid Signal Routing At 2018 SMPTE LA

At the 2018 SMPTE LA conference, Utah Scientific will demonstrate its 400 Series hybrid digital router, a flexible platform designed to accommodate next-generation IP signals along with today’s high-density SDI.

The 400 Series router can handle any number of IP and SDI signal formats along with audio and data, all within a common frame. The new SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2022-6/7 IP formats are supported, along with 3G-SDI, analog, HD, SD, and audio signals including analog, digital AES3, MADI, TDM, and AES 67.

In addition, an SDI/IP hybrid “pass-through” card will be shown for the 400 Series. The pass-through card will change how broadcasters look at the SDI/IP transition. The router also handles all major digital and analog audio formats and features advanced signal processing for embedding and de-embedding.

The Utah Scientific 400 Series Hybrid Router integrates with the SynView 4K and IP multiviewer from Axon. This modular multiviewer can handle both 4K and IP video formats. SynView is a single-field latency multiviewer system that offers external looping for an unlimited number of input channels.

The company’s UHD-12G digital routing switcher is an enterprise-class system that enables the reliable distribution of a full range of SDI video signals—from SD data rates up to 2160p60, in a single-link interconnect. Ideal for live acquisition of UHDTV content, the UHD-12G simplifies installations, reduces the rack space and cables needed to process 4K signals, and lowers operating expense.

Fully complaint with the SMPTE ST 2081 and ST 2082 standards for SDI video, the UHD-12G can also receive, route, and distribute SDI signals up to the latest 4K/60 standards on a single cable. In addition, the UHD-12G can be controlled by any version of Utah Scientific’s current family of routing control systems, including the SC-4, SC-40, and SC-400.

In modern broadcasting, multiplatform delivery and multipurpose repackaging of content demand mastery of multiple workflows. Utah Scientific’s Cerebrum software makes the control and monitoring of a traditional or IP broadcast infrastructure easier, more efficient, and cost-effective than ever. To be demonstrated at the company’s exhibit booth, Cerebrum provides comprehensive tools used to configure, control, monitor, and maintain products from any manufacturer within and beyond the broadcasting industry.
