Hamlet strive to provide no-nonsense test and measurement and routing switchers to the television broadcast industry covering baseband, IP, ASI RF up to 4K and UHD.

For more than thirty years it's very clear they have succeeded in doing just that. Having listened to end users to market leaders, Hamlet continue to offer real-world solutions for those that realise the benefit of Hamlet's unique range of broadcast solutions, pre and after sales service that are second-to-none.

Hamlet now offer the latest in modular and 12G, Matrix Switch Routing Switchers, the DigiTek DT900, MicroFlex Mach2 and the Enterprise T&M products; they offer vital interconnect functionality whilst ensuring continuity of your operations at a cost-effective price.

The new MSC-XDM modular SDI Routers offer extreme levels of routing flexibility, with a choice of three base models, optimizing operation and cost. Units are expandable, up to 16x16, 32x32, and 64x64, in 1RU, 2RU or 4RU of rack space.

Modular systems can be independently expanded by 8 input or 8 output Modular I/O cards, allowing for asymmetrical matrix sizes. Mix I/O cards types include 75 Ohm BNC and SFP module cards.

The new MSC-UXD 12G-SDI UHD routing switchers are currently available in 8x8, 8x4, and 4x4 matrix sizes and offer support for 4K and UHD SDI formats with backwards compatibility for 6G, 3G, 1.5G and SD rates. Using SFP modules enables matrix sizes to be totally user configurable.

The DigiTek DT900 1U rack test and measurement platform is unique with its four input capability and built-in speaker set. The quality of reproduction of the latter is exemplary for such a small enclosure. It is widely used by system integrators worldwide and is a standby for broadcasters who require quality precision instrumentation. With a choice of four input modules slots, options for EYE and test signal generation all from one instrument, its design encompassed the very first display of four simultaneous trace displays enabling four cameras to be aligned simultaneously. The four input capability is exceptionally useful in OB and galleries.

The industry standard, double award-winning MicroFlex Mach2 – the smallest handheld T&M platform in the world – sets the standards for functionality and price. Now with 3G/HD/SD video, audio measurement and monitoring, plus "3G/HD/SD Test Signal Generation and EYE measurement all-in-one package", the platform switches on from the get-go – no delays, with industry standard display features and patented cursor measurement. No issues with start-up time or menu operation, it's a favourite of engineer and non-engineer like.

The twice award-winning Enterprise VX2 is well established at broadcasters in the USA and Europe. The Enterprise is now the premier solution for those requiring a portable real-time analyser covering analysis of HEVC, H.264, MPEG-2 over IP, ASI, OTT and RF streamed services – with the RF spectrum analyser and HDSDI.

Hamlet, a company that continues to offer you the best bang for your buck. We look forward to hearing from you with your requirements.
