MACOM's 12G Crosspoint Enables FOR-A's Next Generation Routing Switcher for 4K and 8K Video
- MACOM's M21605 supports up to 160 12G-SDI inputs and outputs
- The MFR-4000 Routing Switcher supports 12G-SDI on all 72 inputs and 72 outputs
- MACOM's Crosspoint Solutions will be showcased at IBC 2017
MACOM's 160x160 M21605G-12 crosspoint switch combines multi-rate broadcast video routing and switching in a single device, with each switching path operating independently at any data rate of up to 12.8 Gbps. The resulting groundbreaking bandwidth provides a critical ingredient for broadcast equipment manufacturers who are designing and building next-generation higher-speed systems capable of supporting serial uncompressed UHDTV serial digital interface (SDI) covering both rates at 10.692 Gbps and 11.88 Gbps. MACOM's device also supports higher density HD/3G systems by enabling transmission of up to four 3G SDI streams or eight HD SDI streams. The crosspoint switch is backward-compatible with lower speed SDI interfaces, providing a seamless migration path to higher data rates.
"By leveraging MACOM's ability to support 12G-SDI, we are able to build
a system that simplifies implementation and provides greater flexibility
in handling different SDI rates," said
"As broadcast transitions to 4K, the need for higher density switching
fabrics becomes critical," said
MACOM will showcase a complete portfolio of cable equalizers, cable
drivers, reclockers and crosspoint switches supporting 12G-SDI at IBC,
