Compact SDI routers
Compact, robust and built for critical production environments, KUMO Compact SDI routers offer flexibility and quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications at an unprecedented price. KUMO SDI routers are available in four configurations: KUMO 6464 supports 64 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 3232 supports 32 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 1616 supports 16-3G SDI inputs and outputs and KUMO 1604 supporting 16 3G-SDI inputs and four 3G-SDI outputs.
4K, 3G, HD, SD Support
Upgrading a facility or mobile unit is not always an all-at-once process.
A certain amount of overlap exists where a mixture of signals have to all coexist within the same architecture.
KUMO routers are designed to upgrade as you do. With a simple setting change, KUMO routers can be configured for ganged dual and quad port routing, allowing multiple inputs and outputs to be grouped together 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.
