Kahuna Flare offers 1080p support for over-the-air TV

Kahuna Flare is claimed to be the first mid-level switcher to offer standard single-link 1080p support alongside SD and HD formats, making it ideal for over-the-air broadcasts, IP, or internet delivery platforms – and even large progressive screen presentations. With versions ranging from 2 M/E to 4 M/E, Kahuna Flare offers four keyers per M/E and two channels of 3D DVE, all in a single 6U rack frame. The system comes standard with 48 inputs and 24 outputs, with the option to upgrade to 60 inputs and 32 outputs. Snell’s unique FormatFusion3 gives Kahuna Flare users unmatched versatility in working with multiple signal formats, enabling them to mix SD, HD, and 1080p inputs and outputs simultaneously as required to meet any distribution need. Snell’s Vega is a new routing platform that allows users to configure any signal port independently for fiber or coax (copper), easing a mixed connectivity environment and helping broadcasters to migrate simply and cost-effectively. Available in 2RU with 96 ports or 4RU with 192 ports, its unique design enables any port to be configured as either an input or output, providing the industry’s most flexible asymmetric routing solution. Also on display at BVE 2013 will be KudosPro MC500, the newest addition to the KudosPro family of cost-effective, broadcast-quality format and standards conversion systems. The KudosPro range is available at a low price point, making it ideal for the many broadcasters, news agencies, and content providers that must consider cost and space issues while also ensuring high-quality delivery of large numbers of channels to domestic and international audiences. With the MC500, Snell places the superior picture quality of motion compensation within reach of even the tightest budgets. J28
