KUMO 6464-12G

Compact 64x64 12G-SDI Router

KUMO 6464-12G offers increased capacity for larger configurations while maintaining a compact 4RU profile with support for 12G-SDI/6G-SDI/3G-SDI/1.5G-SDI with 64x 12G-SDI inputs and 64x 12G-SDI outputs.

KUMO 12G-SDI routers support large format resolutions, high frame rate (HFR) and deep color formats while reducing cable runs when transporting 4K/UltraHD over a single SDI link. Multi-link gang control also offers routing of up to 8K resolutions. The router offers network-based and physical control using KUMO CP and CP2 and mirrors the physical form of AJA’s production-proven KUMO 6464 router, with a USB port for configuring IP addresses via AJA’s free eMini-Setup software.

Built to the same quality standards as all AJA KUMO products, KUMO 6464-12G is the ideal choice for any situation where a balance of size, performance and capacity are critical such as post facilities and mobile trucks.

Powerful Signal Control

KUMO 6464 12G's powerful cross-point routing matrix maps any input to any number of outputs without the need for additional patch panels or distribution amplifiers. Use KUMO 6464 12G as an affordable distribution amplifier by routing a single input to all outputs. Used in this way, a KUMO 6464-12G can take the place of multiple distribution amplifiers.

As 8K emerges and 4K/UltraHD workflows continue to gain ground, KUMO 6464 12G can meet the rising challenge. KUMO 12G-SDI routers offer single-link cable simplicity for 4K/UltraHD and with a simple setting change, can be configured for ganged dual-link or quad-link grouping allowing users to group together multiple inputs and outputs for 8K workflows This allows routing of raw or 8K or 4K/UltraHD signals throughout a production, live event, OB truck or post facility.

Salvo Simplicity

Salvos allow an operator to quickly recall predefined sources to specific destinations configurations with a simple button press.

KUMO 6464-12G supports up to 8 Salvos within it and they can be recalled via the router’s Web UI, GVG Native Protocol over Ethernet, RS-232, and/or the AJA's KUMO CP2 Salvos buttons. 

 

Compact Routing

KUMO 6464-12G compact SDI routers provide powerful signal control and support full broadcast specifications over 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI, with quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications. The super-compact 4RU format is just a few inches deep, making it a perfect fit for any broadcast, production, or postproduction environment, from mobile sports trucks and edit suites, to corporate video installations or live A/V installs.

KUMO SDI routers are available in seven configurations: Three for 12G-SDI and four for 3G-SDI routing.

For 12G-SDI, look to KUMO 6464-12G  for 64x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 3232-12G for 32x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs or KUMO 1616-12G for 16x 12G-SDI inputs and outputs.

For 3G-SDI, KUMO 6464 offers 64x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 3232 has 32x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 1616 has 16x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs and KUMO 1604 provides 16x 3G-SDI inputs and 4x 3G-SDI outputs.

 

Broadcast-Standard Reliability

Designed for critical broadcast, production and post environments, KUMO routers are built to AJA standards that exceed SMPTE specifications. The use of premium components coupled with dual redundant power supplies ensures the highest signal quality and maximum uptime even in the unexpected event of a power supply failure.

Simple Installation and Configuration

Running Embedded Linux, KUMO routers are network-ready and support powerful HTTP control and monitoring via a web browser - without the need for any additional software.

KUMO's USB port connection allows easy IP configuration using free AJA eMini-Setup software.  Alternatively, standard network configuration allows access to each KUMO via its default IP address. Once connected to KUMO using a web browser, you can configure the full TCP/IP settings, select and name KUMO routers, name sources, and destinations, and perform all operational functions.

KUMO routers are easily integrated with existing infrastructure utilizing the industry-standard Grass Valley Native Protocol over RS-422 or even Ethernet. Ethernet network connectivity also allows you to control all KUMO routers from any web browser on a network-connected device, ensuring you have the control you need from any location.

KUMO CP2 and KUMO CP

KUMO CP2 and KUMO CP are optional control panels that can be used in standalone or networked configurations.

Connecting via Ethernet to the same network as the KUMO routers, KUMO CP and KUMO CP2 enables full control from any location without the need for a computer. Up to four KUMO routers can be controlled from a single control panel.

KUMO CP2 offers direct access to all 32 inputs and 32 outputs for the KUMO range up through the KUMO 3232-12G, and with a simple click of the shift key, addresses all 64 sources and destinations for the KUMO 6464.

Affordable

Whether you’re building a mobile truck, edit suites or an AV flypack, get the routing capabilities you need at a price that fits well within your budget. And KUMO routers are so affordable they can even be used in place of traditional DAs to distribute signals to multiple locations. KUMO routers provide an incredible price/performance ratio while still maintaining the highest quality standards.
