Solving distribution challenges for higher bandwidth signals, Norwia is showcasing the latest addition to its miniHUB platform, a flexible 4K/12G UHD-SDI system. The company has made advances to provide a 4K/UHD 12G-SDI solution for next generation standards, which is already benefitting operators with its cost saving architecture.
Using interchangeable small form pluggable (SFP) modules, the miniHUB platform, which Tracey Ford, chief sales and marketing officer at Norwia, described as, “Lego for broadcasters,” can deliver projects with different requirements: while one outside broadcast can demand 16 channels of HD-SDI video, the next may require 12 channels of HD-SDI plus a Gigabit Ethernet channel.
With Norwia’s AutoSFP functionality, cards are automatically configured when the SFP’s are inserted into the miniHUB. One card can solve a multitude of problems and cancel the need for the user to carry an additional card for each system, so reducing cost and increasing hardware ROI.
By combining the 4K/UHD 12G-SDI solution with AutoSFP technology, Norwia has created a flexible and cost saving market alternative. The new product can be incorporated into existing miniHUB systems, including its CWDM multiplexed solutions.
Said Ford: “4K production is well on the way to being the standard and live TV productions, especially sport, will become increasingly dependent on it.
