Utah Scientific Focused On IP Interoperability

In an effort to show its desire to work with the industry at large in supporting standards for IP infrastructures, Utah Scientific will participate in the IP Showcase at IBC2017, which will bring together more than 40 vendors working together to demonstrate real-world IP interoperability.

In combination with this, Utah Scientific will show the latest developments in its 400 Series 3 hybrid router working with third-party technology certified by the AES, AIMSAMWA, EBU, IAMB, MNA, SMPTE, and VSF to ensure compatibility when creating and distributing IP-encoded files for real-time media workflows. 

“With all the excitement surrounding studio video over IP and the next-generation SMPTE ST 2110 standard, our customers still face the reality of everyday SDI workflows,” said Tom Harmon, President and CEO, Utah Scientific. “When we launched our new 400 Series 3 hybrid router at this year's NAB Show, it was met with great enthusiasm because it can accommodate high-density SDI and the creation of IP signals from a central frame. Stations that made a huge investment in SDI workflows are already embracing this hybrid approach because it offers a truly future-proof solution.”

At IBC2017 in Axon's stand, Utah Scientific will showcase its all-new 400 Series 3 hybrid router and UHD-12G digital routing switcher in three demo stations: IP hybrid, Axon Cerebrum control, and 4K UHD. Highlights include a new frame controller card enabling seamless integration of the 400 Series 3 with Axon's Cerebrum control system, as well as conversion cards for SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2022-6/7 that also support the previous-generation 400 Series 2 routers. In addition, Utah Scientific will preview the prototype transceiver cards it is developing for both the 400 Series 2 and 400 Series 3.
