Utah Scientific Announces 4K Routing Switcher
Three matrices offered
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Scientific announced a major extension of the Utah-100/UDS
routing switcher family with a new range of routing switchers offering 6 Gbps
UHD-SDI signal capabilities to support new 4K signal formats (both single- and
multi-link) used in ultra-high-definition TV production. The 6 Gbps
UHD-SDI solutions will provide twice the density--at half the power)--and
outstanding performance at a substantially lower cost than competitive 3 Gbps
Utah says its 100/UDS 4K routers are
available in 32x32, 64x64, and 144x144 matrix sizes, and they offer the
same control options as the successful Utah-100/UDS routers introduced in 2012.
Complementing the new 4K routers will be a 4K signal-processing module that
provides multiplexing and demultiplexing of 1.5 and 3 Gbps streams to and
from the 6 Gbps format.
This modular system is based on I/O modules with 16 ports, interconnected by a
crosspoint fabric that allows any input signal to feed any number of output
ports. For mixed-signal applications, the new 4K routers can also be fitted
with 3G cards from the Utah-100/UDS family, providing a full range of
connectivity options including coax, fiber, IP-video, and DVI/HDMI
The Utah-100/UDS 4K routers are controlled and monitored through a built-in Web
interface that allows users to operate the system from a Web browser for local
or remote control. Hardware control panels and an iPad app are also
available to control the routers.
Utah Scientific will demo the new routers at Booth #N4607 at the NAB Show, April 6-11 in Las Vegas.
