Enterprise class hybrid router offers scalable power

The NVISION 8500 hybrid routing system combines exceptional resilience with cost-, space- and power efficiency to make it an ideal enterprise-class routing solution, according to Grass Valley.

Designed for production and playout applications from trucks to the largest engine rooms, the company claimed it offers the convenience of integrated audio processing and simplified cable management.

The routing system is available in five frame sizes, with matrices from 144×144 to 1152×1152 and larger.

Grass Valley said that the new NVISION 8500 Router IP Gateway card provides broadcasters with the ability to ensure their facilities are ready for the coming transition from SDI to IP infrastructures. By packetising realtime, uncompressed, baseband video using SMPTE 2022-6, the IP Gateway gives enables broadcasters to transport video over 10 GbE networks.

Also featured at IBC by Grass Valley are its Kayenne K-Frame switchers, which the company claimed deliver the highest level of performance available to live productions with innovative features and complete upgradeability.

The modular Kayenne control panel can be mounted flat or in a banked curve, offering operators an ergonomic work surface. The system’s video processing engine, K-Frame, delivers full multi-format support, including 1080p level A and B and 4K. When needed, the Kayenne K-Frame can adapt to offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to nine M/Es with six full keyers in every M/E. The switchers now offer SMPTE 2022-6 connectivity for more streamlined video-over-IP infrastructures, with greater scalability as well as less cabling and faster installation.
