To be shown at NAB 2011, the new Ensemble Designs 9430 Avenue Router for broadcast television and post applications offers a feature-set including a control panel with LCD that displays a live thumbnail of any SDI video source or destination in the router.

As a result, operators are able to view a source on the router panel in real-time before taking it to air. Video thumbnails travel over Ethernet to the 1RU router control panel where they are displayed on a compact, high resolution display. The panel can be used on-site in a television station or post house, or the panel can be used thousands of miles away. Additionally, indicators for synchronicity and timing, audio and AFD are designed to provide confidence that a source is ready to use.

The router is made of a flexible matrix that allows the user to configure the number or inputs and outputs that required for the installation. The basic size is 8×2, but user-configurable input or output ports can be added. Any size from 8×2 up to 28×2 or 8×22, or any sizes in between, such as 10×5 or 15×15, is possible.

There is support for SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI, DVB-ASI and 310M signals, while optional clean and quiet switching providing full-frame synchronisation allows the router to switch cleanly between asynchronous sources. Audio is also cleanly switched.

Applications include master control bypass switcher, QC monitoring, off-site news bureaus and radio shows, mobile trucks and helicopters.
