BroaMan announces supercharged 12G version of Mux22 interface

High bandwidth fibre network specialist, BroaMan, has extended its successful range of Mux22 devices with the addition of the Mux22 12G, an all-in-one 12G-enabled unit.

It will make its debut on stand (Hall 8, Stand A97) at next month’s IBC2022 broadcast show at the RAI, Amsterdam (9-12 September).

Mux22 in its different guises has been providing solutions in the broadcast environment for nearly a decade due to its protocol independence and ability to process any signal in just a small 1RU chassis.

Since the 4K era has been firmly adopted by both the commercial and consumer markets, it was only a matter of time before customers asked BroaMan to enable 12G transmission in its devices, states BroaMan MD, Tine Helmle. “Up until now, 12G was available for our Repeat 48 and Repeat 8 Nano, but what the market was really waiting for was the possibility of upgrading our point-to-point device which is our unique Mux22. With its many capabilities and Optocore compatibility, it can also form part of an Optocore loop.”

The final icing on the cake, she emphasised, is the option to upgrade existing Mux22 devices to the new 12G version.

Like all Mux22 devices the new interface will support eight video streams of 12G, an SDI standard supporting greater resolution, frame rates and colour fidelity. At four times the bandwidth of HD it carries around 12 Gigabits per second, making it ideal for the 4K UHD format. Of course this fibre infrastructure also supports 3G, HD and SD-SDI (up to 80 channels), as well as acting as a stand-alone 3G/HD/SD-SDI Router and Repeater. Its universal architecture means it also supports all Data, Audio, Intercom, Ethernet and MADI (functioning as a MADI electrical to fibre converter).

The new Mux22 12G is both real estate-friendly and energy efficient, while its fanless design means it operates silently.

Other features include dual-power supply stability, stable synchronous operation, configurable for any situation, dual fibre redundancy, Unique auto routing feature and Optocore compatibility.

The Mux22 12G will commence shipment in October.
