Snell today announced that its Sirius 800 family of routing switchers has been enhanced with the availability of frame synchronization on the units’ Advanced Hybrid Processing (AHP) input and output cards. The resulting router architecture enables independent processing of audio and video signals with no restrictions on signal formats, timing between signal types, or number of audio channels. Building on the Sirius 800 series’ audio de-embedding, embedding, and audio processing capabilities, the company says the new functionality not only allows all inputs to be retimed before switching and enables operators to guarantee SMPTE-compliant switching, but also supports synchronization of incoming lines to a local studio reference.
