Gator is a versatile software-defined processing platform designed for today’s HD and UHD SDI infrastructure. It provides the versatility of a virtualized processing node, while still integrating simply into traditional SDI infrastructure, installed in a standard openGear chassis.

At its core, Gator provides a large System-on-Chip (SoC) processor which can be loaded with a selection of media processing applications. Gator may be licensed with one or more applications, making it easy to change its job on the fly. This makes Gator a great tool in flexible environments such as mobile and fly packs. GATOR also makes rapid system design and deployment easy; cards can be designed in up-front and provisioned with the desired processing later.

The Gator platform includes 6 12G-SDI inputs and 6 12G-SDI outputs, and feature Ross’ passive hot-plug rear module technology. Our 12G-SDI products feature passive rear panels with HDBNC interconnects,

and hot-plug front modules, which meet the stringent performance requirements of 12G-SDI and provide maximum flexibility and reliability.

An integrated micro SD Card slot is provided for application-specific data storage, such as logos, animation or other media.

In DashBoard, Gator can be fully setup and controlled and managed. The interface will adapt to the active Software-Defined processing application. Status and alarming is reported via DashBoard and SNMP.
