Imagine Communications has announced the Platinum VX digital video router at CABSAT 2015.

Supporting matrix sizes up to 288x288, the Platinum VX small to midsized routers offer fully redundant HD/SDI routing up to 3 Gb/s.

The Platinum VX replaces the compact Panacea line, offering twice the density at half the list price per port. With four frame sizes that range from 16x16 to 288x288, the Platinum VX supports utility routing requirements of any size. The Platinum VX includes a standalone version of the Magellan control system and fully supports all of the Magellan remote control panels. Platinum VX can also be part of a larger routing system using a dedicated Magellan SDN Orchestrator control system for managing hybrid baseband and IP networks.

"Imagine's routers have provided a benchmark for the broadcasting community for decades, and this strategic new addition to the Platinum family extends the reliability of the platform to more compact implementations," said Glenn LeBrun, vice president, product marketing, Imagine Communications. "From space-constrained mobile production trucks to complex multichannel operations, broadcasters require more scale and functionality from their utility routers than ever before. We designed the Platinum VX to meet those evolving requirements. Leveraging the innovation and robustness of our industry-leading Platinum family of routers, Platinum VX offers large-scale routing reliability at a small router price point."

"Utility routers have grown up, and this Platinum VX line satisfies a growing market demand for bullet-proof, cost-effective digital video routers at larger matrix sizes," said Paul Wallis, sales director, Middle East and Africa, Imagine Communications. "CABSAT represents a unique opportunity to showcase this new state-of-the-art platform alongside our entire Platinum line, which now supports all routing sizes and formats – providing superior technical capabilities and workflow support for regional broadcasters’ mission critical operations."

The Platinum VX, Platinum IP3 and other innovative technologies from Imagine Communications will be on display in Hall 3, Stand C3-10 at CABSAT 2015.
