Vega 400 Mainframe Description

Vega is different... we describe it as 'fully asymmetric'... every port can be independently set up as an input or an output! For monitoring or distribution applications in particular, this minimizes I/O port wastage, where a traditional router of twice the size might be needed to implement the same system solution. Vega offers real savings in cost and space!

The basic format of video routers has remained unchanged for decades - it's time to offer so much more! 

Total asymmetric signal routing Each signal port independently conï?? gured for use as an input or output 

Coaxial copper or ï??ber connectivity HD-BNC and/or LC ï?? ber SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) I/O modules 

Extensive redundancy options Dual redundant crosspoints, frame controllers, power supplies and fans 

Ultra compact frame 50% more signal ports than conventional coax router for same rack height

Entry level lower cost alternative Dedicated 12-port 'coax only' rear modules (ï??ber connectivity not required) 

Comprehensive set of 'soft' and/or 'hard' control options Intuitive software-based 'plug and play' control and monitoring system and/or 1RU and 2RU control panels.
