Ensemble Designs’ Avenue 9430/9440 Flexible
Matrix routers provide users with real-time
thumbnail video displays of signals being
switched, as well as source and destination
Router matrices are not pre-established, allowing
purchasers to create a configuration
precisely suited to their needs. The basic size
is 8 x 2; however, this may be expanded to 28
x 2, 8 x 22, or other configurations. (Maximum
size is 15 x 15.) The basic 8x2 router module
occupies only one slot in an Avenue, or 3/10
of an RU. A fully configured router system requires
only three slots.
The Flexible Matrix routers provide signal
processing in addition to switching functions,
including frame synchronization of all sources,
and also include built-in diagnostics.

Eyeheight’s NS-41 is a simple 4x1 digital
video routing switcher that’s designed for SDI
standard-definition video signals. The unit features
mechanical relay bypassing on its number
one input and is designed to operate in
Eyeheight’s FB-9E etherbox 1RU chassis system.
The chassis frame accommodates up to
six NS-41 routing switcher cards.
The NS-41 routing switcher works with both
NTSC 525/60 and PAL 625/50 video standards
and performs switching operations nonsynchronously,
so no external reference signal
is necessary. It may be used with either Eyeheight’s
FP-9 or FP-10 remote control panels.

MRF Series Routing
For-A’s MFR series small and medium size
routing switchers are designed for multiformat
switching applications, accommodating SD,
HD, 3G, and ASI signals.
The MFR-3232 provides 32 input and 32 output
capability, the MFR-3216 is configured for
32 inputs and 16 outputs, and the MFR-1616
provides 16 x 16 switching. All routers automatically
recognize input signal types and can de
delivered with a redundant power system.
These small- and medium-scale routers incorporate
many of the features available in
For-A’s larger MFR-5000 router, source name
tracking, tally connections for external devices,
and interfacing that allows multiple routing
switchers to be linked.
