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...
