Quantel Adds Mixed Video, AES Audio Routing Capability to Snell Vega

Snell Vega range of routers now supports mixed video and AES audio routing as well as audio-only operation.

Quantel has announced the Snell Vega range of asymmetric routers now supports mixed video and AES audio routing as well as audio-only operation.

Any combination of video and audio signals can now be accommodated within the Vega chassis, including both Unbalanced and Balanced AES audio. All ports are bidirectional and are software-configurable to deliver any combination of inputs and outputs due to Vega’s asymmetric architecture.

The Snell Vega asymmetric router now supports mixed video and AES audio routing and audio-only operation.

In addition, new audio-specific features have been added, including: support for mono and stereo routing; the ability to breakaway single channels from stereo pairs; mixed AES and Dolby E routing; and sample-rate conversion of asynchronous audio inputs.

Existing Vega owners can take advantage of the development via a simple controller update, which enables new AES audio modules to be retrofitted to all existing Vega systems.

Quantel Snell will be exhibiting in booth SL2009 at NAB 2015.
