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.

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.

HDR or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colors to be communicated to your audience.
