Utah Scientific to Show “Bridge” Router for Stations Making the Transition to IP

Utah Scientific, a veteran provider of SDI video routers, has developed and will show at the 2017 NAB Show, its new 400 Series 3 Hybrid Digital Router, which can handle any number of IP and SDI video signal formats along with audio and data from the same frame. The 400 Series 3 hybrid router provides the perfect bridge between both signal processing and distribution technologies.

Ideal for broadcast, mobile, corporate, and postproduction settings, the new Utah Scientific 400 Series 3 Hybrid Digital Router features double the outputs without increasing the overall footprint. The result is efficient, feature-rich signal routing with the unique ability to drive normal cable runs as well as short runs to monitoring devices such as multiviewers.

“The transition to IP video operations is going to be like nothing we've ever seen in the broadcast industry,” said Tom Harmon, President and CEO, Utah Scientific, “but it won't happen overnight. As standards continue to mature, many broadcasters will be taking an incremental approach to the IP migration. That means we'll be living in a hybrid world for some time, driven by SDI routers that handle both IP and SDI signals.”

Harmon said that despite the buzz surrounding video over IP and the next-generation SMPTE 2110 standard, there's still the reality of everyday SDI workflows across the country. The new 400 Series 3 platform is designed as the perfect choice for managing high-density SDI and the creation of IP signals from a central frame.

The UTAH-400 Series 3 router is designed to provide a single platform for all signal formats including those used in IP networks. The router is based on a unique hybrid architecture, making it ideal for even the most complex signal management environments. Robust tools for switching and processing signals drive a complete, integrated, and flexible system for the facilities of today and the future.
