The AJA KUMO 1616 16x16 Compact SDI Router features 16 3G SDI inputs and outputs which is just the right size for medium-sized facilities and mobile trucks when combining multiple cameras, monitors, editing systems, tape decks and file-based recorders into a seamless workflow.
Cost-effective, without compromising power or flexibility, KUMO compact SDI routers provide powerful signal control and support full broadcast specifications over SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G SDI, with quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications. The super-compact 1RU and 2RU formats are just a few inches deep, making them a perfect Fit for any broadcast, production, or post production environment, from mobile sports trucks and edit suites, through to corporate video installations or live event A/V rigs.
Running Embedded Linux, KUMO routers are network-ready and support full HTTP control and monitoring. KUMO's internal webserver allows immediate installation, configuration, and operation with standard web browsers - so there's no need to purchase or install any additional software. The optional 1RU networkable control panel (KUMO CP) can be used in standalone or networked configurations to enable comprehensive control without the need of a computer.
AJA KUMO routers are easily integrated with existing infrastructure utilizing the industry-standard Grass Valley Native Protocol over RS-422 or even Ethernet. Ethernet network connectivity also allows you to control all KUMO routers from any web browser on a network-connected device, ensuring you have the control you need from any location.
As 4K workflows continue to gain ground, KUMO routers can grow as you do. With a simple setting change, KUMO routers can be configured for ganged dual and quad port routing, allowing users to group together multiple inputs and outputs for Dual Link, 4K and UltraHD workflows. This allows seamless routing of uncompressed or RAW 4K and UltraHD signals throughout a production or post facility. Then switch the router back to HD/SD operation as needed, giving you the flexibility to route virtually any format in your facility.
