AJA Video rolls out KUMO SDI routers
AJA Video Systems introduced the new KUMO line of compact SDI routers at IBC2009.
AJA's KUMO 1604 and 1616 routers are small but offer features including SDI, HD-SDI and 3G SDI compatibility as well as unique Web-browser control over a LAN for easy integration into any post and production environment.
The KUMO 1604 supports 16 SDI inputs and four out, and the KUMO 1616 supports 16 channels in and out. Despite their small 1RU form factor, KUMO compact routers are broadcast-specified products that support SDI, HD-SDI and 3G SDI.
KUMO routers are reclocking, nonblocking and ready for any broadcast, production or post-production job. Running embedded Linux, KUMO routers support HTTP and SNMP control and monitoring. KUMO's internal Web server enables immediate configuration and operation via any standard Web-browser on any OS.
