Miranda CR6464 routing switcher
Las Vegas —Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, a global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, will launch the new nVision CR6400 compact router series at NAB 2014.
The nVision CR6400 series augments the existing nVision Compact range and is the only router to offer a 3Gbs HD-SDI, 64×64 matrix with high- density DIN connections in just 2RU. This small yet powerful router — initially offered in two distinct models, the nVision CR6464-3GIG and nVision CR6464-AES — is ideal for production studios or edit suites, master control or playout facilities, OB trucks or even stadiums that need a compact, highly reliable router that is also cool-running and easily serviced.
The range also comes with standard features not typically found in similar-sized routers, such as the ability to function independently of a costly external control system and hot-swap serviceability. All key functionality modules are easily serviceable in the field, including hot-swappable crosspoint, control, input/output cards and fans module, which reduces downtime.
“Until now there has been a noticeable gap in the broad availability of 64×64 routers,” said Scott Murray, Miranda’s senior vice president for core products. “The nVision CR6400 series closes that gap by providing a much-needed alternative for those who want routing power and reliability in applications where large routers are too big, too heavy or just plain overkill.
“The addition of the nVision CR6400 series means that Miranda now offers the most complete, no-compromise range of routers in the industry. Every potential broadcast application is matched by a routing solution that is an ideal fit.”
The nVision CR6400 routers have an integrated control system which means that external control systems are not required, even when multiple routers or control panels are networked together.
