12G/3G/HD-SDI 72X72 Routing Switcher Main Frame
12G-SDI compatibility across all 72 inputs and 72 outputs brings powerful support to 4K and 8K routing
Add up to eight I/O cards, with nine channels per card. Configure a matrix of up to 72 x 72 inputs and outputs. Building on solid MFR series performance, the MFR-4000 inspires confidence in management through redundancy and easy maintenance. What’s more, when adding a 4K matrix with 3G-SDI routers, 12G-SDI support enables single-cable transfer of 4K video without complex cabling and fewer channels. Take advantage of the space saved by reducing cables.
Conventional 3G-SDI routing switchers require 4 crosspoints for input and output of 4K video. With 12G-SDI, 4K can be carried over a single crosspoint. The MFR-4000 also determines the type of SDI input automatically—no need to worry about what signals are supplied.
4K conversion (12G-SDI/quad link 3G-SDI, 2SI/SQD)
Add the MFR-2SDIGB and MFR-2SDOGB cards for conversion of video (quad link 3G-SDI/12G-SDI) and mapping (2SI/SQD) formats. These options open the door for equipment previously incompatible with 12G-SDI, enabling system building focused on this new specification.
Solid Performance in Seven Features
Multi-format video input and output
Support for 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI and DVB-ASI input and output. No need to worry about signal formats, thanks to auto signal detection.
As core system components, FOR-A routing switchers can incorporate redundancy to ensure nonstop operation in case of problems.
- Redundant CPU board (optional MFR-CPUA)
- Redundant power supply (optional MFR-PSA)
- Router linkage: Parallel operation of two routing switchers ensures matrix redundancy and enables quadruple redundancy of the power supply unit and CPU board.
Can be integrated into an SNMP monitoring system. Enables monitoring of various operational states, such as power, fan, and CPU status, SDI signal input or output, and crosspoint errors. If system failure and recovery occur, SNMP traps are sent to managers.
A built-in webserver enables immediate setup without installing software on external devices. Via this interface, settings can also be configured in an offline environment.
Versatile crosspoint control
Besides typical crosspoint switching, the unit enables a variety of crosspoint control.
- Error-proofing (Inhibit, Lock)
Interface expansion units
Three types of interface expansion units are available to suit specific applications.
- MFR-TALM: Tally Manager
- MFR-RULINK: Remote Control Relay Unit
- MFR-GPI: GPI Unit
Connectivity with other products
Can be remote-controlled through the Ethernet or serial ports. Compatibility with common protocols such as TSL and Harris enables tally linkage or auto source name tracking for crosspoint switching. As well as our exclusive interface to the FOR-A line of HVS production switchers and standalone multi viewers.
