At NAB (booth # SU1414), Nvision will demonstrate the first deployment of Gennum's new 3Gb/s SDI chipset in a large-scale router, the new NV8288 digital video router. It is compliant with the emerging SMPTE 424M standard.
Now shipping, the router is specifically designed for use in video production trucks, small studios and other applications where space is limited. The NV8288 delivers the same level of performance and reliability of Nvision's large-scale studio routers at half the size (10 RU), half the depth (12 inches deep), half the weight (approximately 150 lb), and half the power consumption (less than two kilowatts).
It supports all standard SD data rates, and is ASI-compliant. The basic NV8288 can be configured for systems ranging in size from 12 x 12 up to 288 x 576. For customers planning for future needs, the NV8288 is expandable with a second frame to 576 x 576. All modules in the NV8288, including power supplies and cooling fans are front-serviceable and hot swappable, which simplifies installation, upgrades and service.
