Description

Platinum VX 1 RU 16X16 Dual Clean & Quiet Router with Additional 16X12 SFP Option. Includes redundant PSU.

Choosing a video router is a crucial decision - it is an investment at the core of your infrastructure, expected to be the never-failing, signal routing workhorse. At Imagine Communications, we ensure that every router decision is the right one with our industry-recognized Platinum™ family of innovative routing solutions that now includes the new Platinum VX line. This latest addition of affordable small-to-midsize utility routers offers the highest density per rack unit of any SDI video routing system on the market. 

The concept of a utility video router has evolved over the years from a 10x1 "glitch switch" to a router requirement that supports SMPTE RP 168 switching in much larger matrix sizes. With its four frame sizes, the Platinum VX supports matrices from 16x16 up to 288x288. Featuring a highly robust and fault tolerant architecture - with the flexibility to handle all types of video signals reliably - the Platinum VX also incorporates the latest equalization and reclocker technologies, delivering the best signal quality every time. 

An exceptionally dense and powerful series of 3G/HD/SD triple rate routers, the Platinum VX comes standard with built-in Magellan™ set up and configuration utilities. When implemented as part of a larger routing system in a hybrid environment, Platinum VX can seamlessly operate under the overarching management of the Magellan™ SDN Orchestrator, which provides a seamless path to IP while maintaining standard routing and broadcast workflows. This versatile line of video routers also fully supports the award-winning Magellan range of router control panels. 

Built for on-the-job, 24/7 reliability, and supporting broadcasters and mobile production facilities as well as cable, telco and government applications, Platinum VX video routers are easily incorporated into any workflow and deliver an unparalleled level of versatility and value that helps any operation work smarter and more efficiently.
