Routing Systems Ultrix Applications

Applications

With the best value and performance available in small to mid-size routers, Ultrix is the first series of routers to bridge the gap between simple, low cost systems and high end, expensive integrated implementations. Ultrix is an incredibly flexible platform that fulfills a wide variety of application requirements, and also grows with changing needs without having to change or discard hardware.

Routing with Integrated Multi-viewer

In just 2RU total rack space, you have up to 72 in, 64 out routing. All signal paths support up to 3 Gb/s standard, plus support for 12 Gb/s with just a simple software upgrade.

The same hardware provides up to 12 independent multi-viewer outputs using standard HD-BNC I/O or AUX ports. The SFP design permits you to choose between coax, fiber, or HDMI output formats.

Multi-viewer features include 2 PIP sizes plus full screen, integrated audio metering, border/tally, and UMD. There is a simple control and configuration for a single or multiple multi-viewers across many frames using DashBoard.

External Multi-viewer

In just 2RU total rack space, you have up to 72 inputs for up to 12 independent multi-viewer outputs using standard HD-BNC I/O or AUX ports. The SFP design permits you to choose between coax, fiber, or HDMI output formats, and there is support for both embedded and discrete audio inputs. All signal paths support up to 3 Gb/s standard, plus support for 12 Gb/s with just a simple software upgrade.

Multi-channel MUX/De-MUX for 4K facilities

Infrastructure products for single link 4K are very limited in scope and availability. Another use for Ultrix is as an integrated series of 12 Gb/s Mux / De-mux modules.

One use case could be for 16 muxes and 16 de-muxes to shuffle audio from a series of single link 4K sources.

Routing for Production Vehicles

The compact 1RU and 2RU sizes makes Ultrix perfect for trucks, vans, trailers, and other mobile production environments.

The 2RU frame provides up to 72 x 64 12Gb/s video I/O, 12 multi-viewer heads, and up to 1024×1024 audio channels. The feature rich routing platform also provides advanced audio processing.
