Now There Are Two Routing Solutions From Ensemble Designs
New Routing Technology.Introducing the BrightEye NXT 430 Compact Router for clean quiet switching of video and audio sources. The exclusive front panel LCD displays realtime full motion video of your router sources. Great for fly packs, ENG and anywhere you need a small router, this new BrightEye has incredible power in a small 1RU high by 1/3 RU wide footprint – about the size of a CD box set.
Use Asynchronous Sources
The BrightEye Compact Router gives you two clean switched outputs. The router’s built-in clean switch provides full frame synchronization which means you can switch cleanly between asynchronous sources. Wild feeds from cameras, helicopters and microwaves can be fed to the BrightEye Router for perfect switching.
Assignable I/O and Flexible Architecture
You get to configure the number of inputs and outputs. There are 2 fixed input BNCs, 2 fixed output BNCs and 7 assignable BNCs that you configure either as inputs or outputs. The two SFP cages can be populated with dual SFPs that have fiber optic or other connectors, allowing you to determine the best connector for you installation. Adding SFPs gives you true flexibility in combining electrical BNC outputs and fiber optic outputs.

See it. Take it.The Avenue Flexible Matrix Router with realtime video thumbnails. You define each BNC as an input or output through the intuitive web browser interface. Ease of expansion, user-definable input/output port geometry, unique video thumbnails, built-in test signals, and optional clean and quiet switching make it ideal for QC, master control bypass, ENG, edit suites, and for your next project or upgrade.
Exclusive Live Thumbnail Display
Now you can look at your source before you do a take. The exclusive realtime thumbnail display in the Router Control Panel shows you the source before you take it to air. In addition to video monitoring on the LCD, indicators for synchronicity and timing, audio and AFD provide confidence that a source is ready to use. Use the panel at your facility or use it remotely, thousands of miles away.
Clean and Quiet Switching – Done Right
The Clean Switch provides full frame synchronization so it can even switch cleanly between asynchronous sources. Use the control system to designate any SDI input or output to the clean switch. Each clean switch can be assigned to one or more output BNCs. Flawless audio sample rate conversion makes the output truly Clean and Silent.
Built-in Signal Diagnostics
Circuitry on the Avenue 9430 module detects and measures key parameters associated with each video source and makes these parameters available for display on both the hardware and software panels. Parameters include synchronicity and timing, line and frame rate, embedded audio presence/absence, closed caption information, and timecode data.
The Avenue router occupies from one to three slots in any Avenue 3RU frame. The router is comprised of three different modules: the 9430 8×2 router module, the 9435 clean switch sub module, and the 9440 ten port expansion module. Power, video reference, and an interface to the Avenue Control System is provided by the frame. Built-in black, bars and tone save router real-estate.
You Define each BNC as an Input or Output
Most small routers have a fixed number of input and output ports. Often, they are not expandable, and if they are, a fixed block of inputs and outputs have to be added. This makes it very difficult to match the size of the router to the application at hand.
The unique architecture of the Avenue router makes it possible to custom tailor the input/output dimensions of the router to more closely match the requirements of a particular application. Symmetrical (square) as well as asymmetrical (rectangular) configurations are supported.
While the dimensions of the base 9430 router module are fixed at 8 inputs by 2 outputs, the 9440 module provides ten additional ports, all of which are individually user configurable as either inputs or outputs. Up to two 9440 expansion modules may be added to the base 9430 module. A 9430 plus a single 9440 supports a total of 11 different configurations ranging in size from 18×2 to 8×12. A 9430 plus two 9440 modules supports a total of 21 different configurations from 28×2 to 8×22.
This multi-format router supports any mix of HD, SD, 3G, ASI and 310M signals.
Complete control is available from iPad, Router Control Panel, TCP/IP and serial control.
