Densité 3+ FR4 Frame
High-Density Modular Frame for Advanced Signal Processing

The 4 RU Densité 3+ FR4 Frame is a modular frame and controller designed to deliver more power per slot and higher speed connectivity needed by the increased feature set of the latest Densité products. The Densité 3+ FR4 frame offers true multiformat operation, with the ability to process simultaneously SDI and IP 4K, 3G, HD, SD, and analog video, as well as AES and analog audio. The frame provides advanced monitoring and back-up capabilities along with a color LCD panel with integrated touchscreen for ease of status and control navigation on the front panel.

The Densité 3+ FR4 frame can host any of the latest high powered Densité modules, such as the MAP-3901, and the IPG-3901 and KMX-3901 but is also fully backwards compatible with all existing 3 RU and 2 RU Densité modules. With over 100 modules to choose from, this gives you mix and match flexibility and preserves your investment.

  • Fully backwards compatible with Densité 2 and Densité 3 cards
  • 24 slots with a power budget of 25 watts per slots
  • Optional frame reference on controller card providing:
    • Digitally generated reference for intra-frame distribution
    • Timecode extraction and embedding
    • Supports SMPTE ST 318 for perfect audio/video phasing
    • Easy control and monitoring
    • URS simplifies interformat processing
  • Dual GigE port for system wide redundancy
  • Full touchscreen color LCD panel for module status and control
  • Modular frame controller with associated modular rear panel
  • Advanced frame controller configuration provides:
    • Internal GigE switch connectivity
    • Second reference and timecode inputs (with optional frame reference)
    • Future support of SMPTE ST 2059 genlock over IP reference option
