Televisa--a producer of Hispanic programming and live shows--has selected the Network Electronics , HD VikinX serial digital router for the reality show "Big Brother 3" in Mexico.

Video, audio and data signal will be sent through Network Electronics equipment.
The deal includes the VikinX 128 x 128 HD/SDI and 64 x 64 audio, 422 data routers and more than 12 advanced, configurable control panels. The HD, serial digital video router provides a multirate support from 19.4 at 1485 Mbps.
