Router Advice
on Oct 19, 2006 at 8:49:54 pm

I am moving to a new facility and would like to purchase a video/audio switcher to connect to my FCP/AJA Io system. I plan to use three to five different VTR's to connect to the router. The formats that I am going to be using are: BetacamSP, DVCAM, HDCAM, DVD, and an open spot for temporary connections. I will be upgrading my AJA Io to a KONA in the near future to allow me to use HD native signals. Could someone point me in the right direction (websites, brands, features etc.)

Thanks so much.

The cost of a routing switcher with all of these options would be very high.

I suggest an economical alternative is the use of PATCH-PANELS.

You can then have inputs and outputs for Composite, Component, & SDI, all available in one space on 75-ohm "Video" patch-panels, and Audio and Timecode all available in one space on "Audio" patch-panels.

They likely also make a patch-panel strip for 6-pin FireWire as well.

You would then just patch-in cables between the selected outputs and inputs of the units you needed at any given time.

Google for more info.

Thanks Matte. I think that's the way I will go. I appreciate your input.
