SALT LAKE CITY -- May 1, 2008 -- Utah Scientific today announced that its UTAH-400/XL, the first 1056x1056 router in the industry to fit in a single equipment rack, earned a prestigious Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit award at the 2008 NAB Show in Las Vegas. Judged by industry professionals, Broadcast Engineering‘s Pick Hit award program has recognized innovative technology that marks a substantial improvement over the status quo and improves the user‘s everyday work.
The UTAH-400/XL joins the company‘s widely successful UTAH-400 product family and offers all the well-known advantages -- including redundant power supplies, cooler and more reliable operation, and signal format flexibility -- as well as the ability to handle the new 3-Gbps progressive-scan HD signal formats. Readily scalable using a single family of matrix building blocks, the UTAH-400/XL saves a significant amount of space and power when compared to other large routing systems. In addition, the award-winning router uses industry-standard 75-ohm BNC connectors for I/O, providing the highest-ever I/O density on a router of its size.
“Utah Scientific has always been about developing the products that our customers need to meet the challenges of an evolving industry, and we are very happy to see the industry‘s enthusiastic response to the UTAH-400/XL,” said Tom Harmon, CEO of Utah Scientific. “Of course, it is always gratifying when the vision and hard work of our team is recognized with a prestigious award like BE‘s Pick Hit.”
