Polatis Appoints Boxer As UK Distributor To Broadcast Market

Polatis, a supplier of high performance optical switch technologies, has announced the appointment of Boxer Systems as UK distributor for its Trinity family of optical video routing switches, designed for the broadcast and post-production industries.
Trinity offers unlimited data bandwidth and transparency to any format or protocol - analog, digital and RF. Polatis selected Boxer Systems as it brings both technical excellence and a longstanding relationship with many of the UK's top broadcast customers.
Sean Gordon, Director of Sales of Video Products at Polatis, said: "We are seeing considerable demand for high-end optical transport solutions in the global video and broadcast markets, driven by the need to distribute quality high definition video. This targeted distribution agreement will allow Polatis to capitalise on this demand.
"We are proud to work with Boxer Systems as they are a leader in their field and have relationships with the top players in this space. They offer sophisticated systems integration services, and our optical switch product can become a key element and be well represented by Boxer's technically oriented sales and marketing team."
Marc Risby, Director of Technology at Boxer Systems, added: "As our customers begin to implement fibre infrastructures with the growth of HD, they will need low loss switching technologies. The Polatis product range meets this need, offering flexibility to a wide range of signal types and scalability to handle ever-growing video data rates."
The Trinity series is designed specifically for the video transport and broadcast market. It supports virtually all protocols and feed rates - AES, SMPTE-276M, 259M, and 292M, ASI/DVB, NTSC, PAL, QAM and others.
Under-pinning the Trinity design is Polatis' unique beam-steering technology. Unlike other photonic solutions, Trinity can establish and maintain connection routes without a signal present, in a pre-provisioned 'ready and waiting state'.
Not relying on an optical signal feedback to maintain the connection also means no modulation is introduced to the signal, a feature valued by customers who use Polatis products for RF-over-fiber applications today. Like all Polatis products, traffic can be bi-directional, and carry single or multiple wavelengths.
