Harris debuted its new Platinum line of advanced, multiformat routing switchers for large routing applications at NAB last week. Platinum provides signal routing up to 256 x 256 in 15RU and 512 x 512 in 28RU and supports a mix of any signal — video and audio, from analog to HD — all in the same frame.
Platinum is targeted at applications that require routing of a large number of signals. The routers offer redundancy that extends from power and control all the way to complete signal paths. Redundant, load-sharing power supplies and fans, along with front-loading, hot-swappable modules, ensure that a customer's system remains online even during upgrades. Platinum routers scale in increments of eight inputs or outputs, thereby limiting the number of signals affected by any one module, while also enabling scaling as customers increase the number of signals.
