Vega 30

Multiple Solutions Quickly Solve Routing Challenges

Vega 30 is designed to be an extremely low cost routing solution but offering Grass Valley's market leading processing capability built in. A lightweight system with a powerful processor, Vega 30 is easy to configure and simple to operate. It includes hybrid audio routing together with embedded and MADI signals, optional clean and quiet switching on all outputs and all within an ultra lightweight mainframe.

  • Video and Audio routing
    • Clean and quiet switching for smooth transitions
    • De-embedding & embedding for full hybrid routing
    • 3x6 MADI with full audio routing
  • Mix...

Clean and Quiet Switching

Switch line processing
Re-generation of switching line, line synchronized to reference signal. Video and audio V-fade around the crosspoint switch transition

All clean switching signals must be the same
format and synchronous to the reference

V fade rate
4, user selectable, cut to 0.5s V-fade

Non-audio signals
Auto detect and cut

Ancillary data handling in V-fade
VANC data passes transparently

HANC non-audio passes transparently

Audio V-faded
AES validity, user and channel status bits passed transparently
