UT400 144R

The UTAH-400 Series 2 routers are designed to provide a single platform for all signal formats including those used in IP networks. Each router is based on a unique hybrid architecture, making it ideal for even the most complex signal management environments. Robust tools for switching and processing signals drive a complete, integrated, and flexible system for the facilities of today and the future.


Utah Scientific has introduced a family of advanced modules that greatly simplifies system design, delivering a wide range of router functionality in a single frame that otherwise would require the addition of external equipment. Modules enable SDI management, IP decoding and multiplexing of SMPTE ST-2022-6/8, synchronizing incoming signals to a common reference, clean-quiet switching on specific outputs, audio shuffling, de-embedding and embedding, AES, MADI, and support for fiber and analog formats.


In addition to this configuration flexibility, the UTAH-400 Series 2 offers a common set of I/O cards for any frame size. Modular and hot swappable from the front, the cards reduce physical space requirements and power consumption dramatically for increased efficiency and long-term scalability in your operation.
