We’re seeing our customers’ technology models changing: many of them are looking to work with real-time audio and video transport over 10 GbE, 40 GbE and 100 GbE IP networks. This has led to the development of several real-time protocols such as uncompressed SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE ST 2022-7 and VSF TR03/SMPTE ST 2110 to stream and enable interoperability across equipment in the production chain.
Enter the Kula IP, a new smart production switcher that delivers massive amounts of power and seamlessly connects with today’s IP network infrastructures. Kula IP supports these real-time protocols for streaming video on inputs and outputs and works with networks switches of up to 100 GbE.
The Kula IP production switcher provides high-end effects and is available in 1 M/E, 2 M/E and 3 M/E models, as well as a 1 M/E UHD model.
Duplex signals supported over RTP streams via 2x SFP+ 28 cages.
