CABSAT 2015: Platinum launch from Imagine Communications
Imagine Communications has introduced the Platinum VX digital video router at CABSAT. Supporting matrix sizes up to 288×288, the Platinum VX small to midsized routers represents the industry’s latest innovation in category-leading density, reliability and fully redundant HD/SDI routing up to 3 Gb/s.
“Imagine Communications’ routers have provided a benchmark for the broadcasting community for decades, and this strategic new addition to the Platinum family extends the reliability of the platform to more compact implementations,” said Glenn LeBrun, vice president, product marketing, Imagine Communications.
“From space-constrained mobile production trucks to complex multichannel operations, broadcasters require more scale and functionality from their utility routers than ever before. We designed the Platinum VX to meet those evolving requirements. Leveraging the innovation and robustness of our industry-leading Platinum family of routers, Platinum VX offers large-scale routing reliability at a small router price point.”
The newly designed Platinum VX replaces the compact Panacea line, offering twice the density at half the list price per port while benefiting from enhanced capabilities of the company’s industry-leading Platinum platform. The digital video router incorporates the latest equalization and reclocker technologies to deliver unparalleled signal quality and reliability across all signal formats.
With four frame sizes that range from 16×16 to 288×288, the Platinum VX is a simple, cost-effective solution that supports utility routing requirements of any size. The Platinum VX includes a standalone version of the Magellan control system and fully supports all of the Magellan remote control panels. Platinum VX can also be part of a larger routing system using a dedicated Magellan SDN Orchestrator control system for managing hybrid baseband and IP networks.”
