Utah Scientific Developing Next-Generation IP Routing Solutions with Arista Networks

Utah Scientific is working to develop next-generation solutions that integrate Utah Scientific’s advanced hybrid router technology with Arista Networks’ switching platform to ease broadcast customers’ migration to IP-based operations. The goal is to support customers’ current SDI workflows but also help them migrate to the new world of IP operations.

Arista’s networking platforms have been configured to work with Utah Scientific’s IP platform to deliver hybrid SDI/IP routing and native IP-transport solutions for our mutual customers.

In April, at the 2017 NAB Show, Utah Scientific introduced its 400 Series 3 hybrid digital router, a flexible platform designed to accommodate the next-generation SMPTE ST-2110 and SMPTE 2022-7/6/5 IP formats, along with 3G SDI, analog HD and SD, and audio formats including analog, digital AES3, MADI, TDM, and AES67 all in a common frame.

“With all the excitement surrounding studio video over IP and the next-generation SMPTE 2110 standard, as well as the need to address the reality of everyday SDI workflows for some time to come, the 400 Series 3 hybrid platform is the perfect choice for a mixed environment,” said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. “With built-in cross conversion and the ability to upgrade in manageable blocks, you can convert your infrastructure at the pace your facility transitions, protecting your investment at all times. The platform will also continue to evolve as new signal formats are introduced, providing a truly future-proof solution.”

The 400 Series 3 offers the flexibility of 288 I/Os of standard SDI signals with in-frame conversion of all signals to SMPTE 2110 or 2022-7/6/5 IP and vice versa. The router also handles all major digital and analog audio formats, features advanced signal processing for embedding and de-embedding, and is backed by the industry’s only no-fee 10-year warranty.
