Sirius 800 Series

Hybrid SDI, Audio & IP Routing to 12G, with Unrivalled Processing & Multiviewer Capability

The enterprise level Sirius 800 series of routers offer multiformat, expandable routers with exceptional performance, flexibility and reliability. Offering a range of frame options from 288x288 up to 1152x1152 and beyond with I/O options including SDI, AES, MADI, 12G-SDI, and support for 40 GbE SMPTE ST 2110 IP interfaces.

The Sirius 800 benefits from advanced hybrid processing (AHP) integrating functionality that would otherwise require extensive external modular infrastructure, including audio processing, frame synchronization, clean and quiet switching, video and audio delay...

FEATURES

Audio

  • Embedded, SMPTE ST 2110, MADI, AES3
  • Take audio from any input type from AES3 to 12G
  • Route to any output

Embedding on Inputs

  • Internal loop back of audio
  • Build new audio channel sets from incoming embedded audio, and routed audio from any other source

True Monitoring

  • Monitor router inputs and
  • outputs
  • 4 channels from every card, independently routable to 4 monitoring outputs

MV-841 & MV-851 Multiviewers

  • Replace any or all output cards with MV-841 or MV-851 multiviewer cards
  • 576 SDI outputs PLUS 144 multiviewer outputs to monitor any input or output signal

Any SDI Format, any Frame Rate

  • 4 internal timing planes — derived from a single reference input or separate references
  • Maintains accurate switching for multiformat and multi frame-rate operations

Asynchronous Audio

  • Fully asynchronous audio routing from any input to any output
  • Discrete audio sample rates are maintained from input to output

MV-800 Multiviewers

  • Additional multiviewers monitor any input — 140 scalers to 24 multiviewer outputs
  • Plus low-bandwidth streamed versions for remote monitoring over IP

Intelligent Embedding

  • Auto detection of the input format will de-embed from any format automatically
  • Auto synchronizing embedding will embed audio from un-synchronized sources with no audio loss
