Sierra Video is rolling out its new Juniper family of 1RU HD/SDI routing switcher, which offers multirate HD-SDI/SDI signal routing in a slim 1RU frame, with companion AES/EBU digital and analog stereo audio options. Company officials say the units also include many high-end features, such as 3 Gbps video boards, automatic re-clocking, and silent Switch for live-to-air applications.
According to the company, Silent Switch allows users to complete a seamless switch between synchronous HD video signals with embedded audio, practically eliminating the popping or clicking noises associated with other HD-SDI and SDI routing switchers.
The Juniper 3G 8 Series routing switchers are a 3 Gbps HD/SDI video series conforming to SMPTE 424M standards and offering on-board digital and analog audio options. The Juniper 16 Series is a 1.5G series that can be configured with 16 inputs/2 outputs, 16 inputs/1 output, or 16 inputs/dual output (2 outputs that switch in conjunction, so additional DA hardware isn't needed).
Each configuration can be ordered with Sierra Video's Silent Switch technology, and each Juniper routing switcher offers front-panel control as well as digital and analog audio routing in the same frame.
