Utah Scientific introduces 1056 x 1056 1RU router

Utah Scientific has introduced the UTAH-400/XL, one of the first routers in the industry to offer a 1056 x 1056 matrix in a single equipment rack while using industry-standard BNC connectors. Adding to the company's UTAH-400 routing switcher product family and the recently introduced UTAH-400/528, the UTAH-400/XL was developed to provide a single platform for all digital router applications requiring extremely large matrix configurations.

As the largest member of the UTAH-400 family of digital routing switchers, the UTAH-400/XL offers system designers the ability to place a 1056 x 1056 matrix in a 40RU space without the need for special cable/connector arrangements.

The UTAH-400/XL uses industry-standard 75ohm BNC connectors for I/O, and offers all of the UTAH-400 family's well known advantages, including redundant power supplies, low power consumption for cooler and more reliable operation and signal format flexibility — including the ability to handle the new 3Gb/s progressive-scan HD signal formats.

Another unique feature of the UTAH-400/XL architecture is that each crosspoint card actually has 576 inputs and 288 outputs, providing additional internal signal paths that can be used for a number of purposes, such as providing partial crosspoint redundancy without the need for redundant crosspoint cards.
