The Jupiter routing switcher control solution is a proven combination of hardware control panels and virtual software panels that give you full management of all devices on your Jupiter network at the touch of a button. Whether you need to control routing switchers across the room or across the country, Jupiter is straightforward to use. By configuring the crosspoints of a single routing switcher it can expand to control routing switchers as large as 4096x4096 via IP LAN/WAN connections.
Ten LAN or serial-based control panels offering Ethernet or serial connectivity:
S25, S50, SXY, S100 — small-button series; replaces 300 series control panels
L32, L64, LD4, LD16 — large button series: replaced 3800 series control panels
LCD16, LCD48 — LCD button series
Panels feature a shallow, modular design for enhanced mounting capabilities
Only 1.25" deep with DC power supply
4.26" deep with add-on AC power supply
Panels use a full color LCD display for enhanced monitoring of the routing system:
Yellow for destinations
Green for sources
Amber for levels
Magenta for protected status
Red for locked status
Can reside side-by-side with existing systems:
Insert in to existing Jupiter Plus or Jupiter Express systems
Grow current systems without replacing all existing hardware
Move to Ethernet control in a phased manner
Looks, feels, and functions in the same Jupiter style:
Same file server
Same user interface (uses current Jupiter configuration)
Same core feature set (96 levels, pathfinding, etc)
Additional features only available with Jupiter AccuSwitch (JUP-SW-4000)
Ten LAN or serial-based control panels (see above)
Zero downtime on control panel configuration changes
Software Control Panels Offer Desktop Convenience
Grass Valley offers two GUI software control panels that can be displayed on any Windows-based computer connected to the Jupiter system LAN/WAN. Jupiter lets administrators set a user’s level of access and control to prevent unwanted operations and to grant new levels of functionality.
LAN or Serial-based Control Panels
Grass Valley offers numerous Jupiter control panels for the ultimate in design flexibility.
These LAN or serial-based panels are very versatile and offer multiple benefits to the broadcaster, mobile truck operator, and the production/post house. The 10 LAN or serial-based panels all have the same mechanical form factor to allow for:
Ethernet or serial interconnection
AC or DC power options
Thin profile (32 mm / 1.25 in.) for tough installation requirements
Easy-to-view colored back-lit buttons
The 10 LAN- or serial-based panels are grouped by button type — small, large or LCD. The small buttons are used in applications that need a lot of buttons on one panel. The large buttons are available to allow for easy finger press and larger labels if desired. The LCD buttons panels can dynamically display the status of 16 or 48 destinations and sources per button. The scroll wheel enables simple changing of pages to permit many destination and sources to be displayed on the LCD buttons.
Panels feature a shallow, modular design for enhanced mounting capabilities. They are only 32 mm (1.25 in.) deep with DC power supply, and 108 mm (4.26 in.) deep with add-on AC power supply.
Panels use a full color LCD display for enhanced monitoring of the routing switcher with yellow for destinations, green for sources, amber for levels, magenta for protected status, and red for locked status.
When using Jupiter AccuSwitch added features include zero downtime on control panel configuration changes and data router pathfinding.
