Vega 16MV/32MV

Multiple Solutions Quickly Solve Routing Challenges

Offering two configurations: Vega 16MV offers 16x16 SDI routing plus two 4K multiviewer heads. The Vega 32MV offers two 4K multiviewer output heads but increases the SDI routing capacity to 32x32. The Vega 16MV and Vega 32MV can be configured simply online via a web application.

Multiple control options are available:

  • Browser control panel for routing and processing
  • Rollcall interface for Luna panel control
  • General Switcher (SW-P-02) and General Remote (SW-P-08) protocols on Ethernet
  • SNMP control and monitoring


Vega MV Series (16/32)

  • Powerful processing
  • Fast configuration
  • 4K UHD ready
  • Space saving, small form factor
  • Cost-efficient
  • Integrated multiviewer for easy monitoring
  • Excellent picture quality
  • Alarm for fast error detection.

The Vega 16MV and Vega 32MV are ideal for use in small OB trucks, ENG trucks, smaller studios, and anywhere where high quality 4K monitoring of up to 32 signals is needed.
