The NXT 450 combines traditional SD/HD SDI inputs and outputs with high performance H.264 (MPEG-4) encoding and decoding. The result is an integrated solution that bridges between baseband and streaming video formats. Baseband (SDI) sources are routed through frame-synchronizing Clean Switches before being passed to the built-in Encoder. Both IPTV (Unicast or Multicast) and DVB-ASI outputs are simultaneously available. At only 1/3 of a rack unit, the NXT 450 offers an unprecedented level of feature integration in a remarkably small package. This makes it a great choice for portable systems, News trucks and helicopters, remote studios, and distance backhaul.
“First we made a clean and quiet compact router in 1/3 RU,” said David Wood, CEO and Chief Design Engineer at Ensemble Designs. Then we added clean and quiet switching of HDMI and HDCP encrypted sources alongside SDI sources. And then at InfoComm this year, we introduced new BrightEye NXT compact routers that incorporate up/down/cross conversion functionality along with functions like dissolves, router salvos and control from anywhere via web browser enabled devices. Now at IBC we’re adding the BrightEye NXT 450 that has real time MPEG unicast, multicast and DVB-ASI capability – and it’s still only 1/3 RU.”
“This is a game changer,” said David Wood, CEO and Chief Design Engineer with Ensemble Designs. “Now, various formats of high definition and standard definition content can be converted to a common format and routed seamlessly to HDMI and SDI destinations. Standard definition sources can now be up converted to high definition as part of the routing process, as well as cross converting from one HD format to another. Just select an output format and route whatever SMPTE broadcast resolution source you have to that destination.”
“We are very proud that the industry has recognized our products as among the best shown at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention. There are literally thousands of products on display at this event, and to have two selected as Best of Show coming from Ensemble Designs is a real honor, and speaks loudly as to the quality of the products we’re manufacturing,” said David Wood, President and Chief Design Engineer at Ensemble Designs.
