Utah Scientific expands 400 router family

At NAB2007, Utah Scientific will showcase the latest additions to its UTAH-400 family of digital routing switchers. The introductions include a new frame for large routers up to 288×288 with fully automatic internal crosspoint redundancy, a new frame for small routers up to 32×32, and a new set of multi-rate input/output modules that are capable of handling all data rates from 1 Mb/s up to 3 Gb/s, allowing facilities to route all digital video signals including the new 1080p format.

The new UTAH-400/288R frame offers the option of a redundant crosspoint module for the ultimate in service reliability in mission-critical applications for small, mid-sized, and large routing systems. The crosspoint redundancy of the UTAH-400, when combined with the Utah Scientific SC-4 control system’s unique monitoring and control facilities, provides the industry’s best solution for the most demanding operational requirements.

The UTAH-400/32 frame offers full compatibility with all UTAH-400 I/O boards, with redundant power, control, and crosspoint modules in just 2 RU.

The new multirate cards offer a cost-effective solution for facilities that need a routing switcher that is fully HD-compatible not just for today’s 1080i and 720p signal formats, but also for the developing 1080p format, which will require a full 3 Gb/s of bandwidth. The new cards are available for all UTAH-400 routers, in both new and existing installations.

Utah Scientific will aksi introduce two new control panels at NAB: the UCP-1, a full-featured X-Y panel in a compact 1-RU package; and the UCP-DT, a desktop version of the innovative UCP-MM multimode panel introduced last year. The company says the new panels join the UCP panel series, the industry’s most complete and flexible range of router control panels for every application.
