We are committed to delivering riskless and future-ready technology that is both flexible and agile, so it can meet our customers’ business and operational needs today, but also adapt to their future requirements. This is what we will be underlining at BroadcastAsia.”
Market leading multi-format production switchers
SAM’s market leading range of Kahuna and Kula multi-format production switchers will be on show at BroadcastAsia. Kula (available as 1, 2 and 3 M/E versions) easily handles multiple formats making it both future-proof and adaptable for today’s production environment. A wide choice of control panels (up to 24 crosspoint) and access to up to 42 inputs makes operations easy, giving users more time to work on other elements within the live production environment. Supporting higher resolutions, a 12G-SDI mainframe is now available for the Kula switcher. Kahuna remains SAM’s flagship medium to large production switcher with a rich set of features. Kahuna consistently raises the bar for multi-format operations, supporting any combination of SD, HD, 1080p (level A & B), 12G-SDI and Quad SDI for UHD signals, eliminating the need for external conversion.
Next-generation routing and processing
The Vega suite of routers deliver unbeatable functionality at price points that suit a range of budgets. Being shown at BroadcastAsia are the 700, 200, 30 versions that are ideal for small to mid-sized applications and simple to configure and easy to install. The Vega 30 router is ideal for small fixed applications, such as small outside broadcast trucks and studios. It combines powerful video and audio routing capability in a 3RU mainframe with built in signal processing. Simple configuration and set up and clean and quiet switching options makes the Vega 30 ideal for applications where smooth transitions, de-embedding and embedding and full MADI audio routing are key.
