Broaman Offers Full Automatic Redundancy on Audio Devices

BroaMan is offering the capability of full automatic redundancy switchover between a pair of Mux22 devices, which combine 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O with Optocore and SANE digital audio networks, or between Route66 Video Router and Mux22 nodes.

Broaman said the new feature is powered by Optocore, and uses a smart mechanism to detect when one of the fiber links between the nodes is broken. If one of the links fail, the system will automatically switch to the redundant path enabling all videos, audio and data channels to remain working. The switchover time is near instantaneous — implemented in one sample length.


At the same time the Route66 Optocore AutoRouter now hosts a new layout which supports internal multiplexing and redundancy switchover for video.


While BroaMan always had a redundant PSU, redundant audio and data from Optocore and redundant sync switchover, this new feature combines them all, at the same time adding redundancy for video.

“Customers are requesting more redundancy in their systems,” said Maciek Janiszewski, technical sales manager. “We know that improper or dirty cabling might cause issues and therefore redundancy is a must in many situations. Thanks to the Optocore technology we can make the redundant switchover not only automatic but also seamless.”
