With the announcement of the Route66 Redundancy Manager, German network fibre specialist BroaMan introduced full automatic redundancy switchover between devices,by harnessing the power of Optocore. This enables switching between Route66 Video Router and Mux22 nodes – using smart mechanism to detect when one of the fibre-optic links between the nodes is broken.

BroaMan Mux22The same technology has now been brought to pairs of the company’s Mux22 devices. Mux22 – which combines 3G SDI I/O and video sync, with Optocore and Sane digital audio networks – now features full automatic redundancy. Thus should one of the links fail, the system would automatically switch to the redundant path, enabling all video, audio and data channels to remain working. The switchover time is near instantaneous – implemented in a singlr sample length.

This facility is available for any Mux22 device – 16 video (IVT/IVT), eight video and eight intercom ports (IVT/Intercom), eight video and four line I/O (IVT/IC444), eight video and four Madi(IVT/Madi).

‘Optocore has been offering redundancy as a standard for years, while in broadcast and video world redundancy has never been an important feature,’ says BroaMan Technical Sales Manager, Maciek Janiszewski. ‘All this changed when muti-format single-cable solutions like Mux22 appeared on the market.

‘We realised we could use Optocore’s experience and smart fault detection algorithms for adoption into BroaMan’s best-selling series. Thanks to the Optocore technology we can make the redundant switchover both automatic and seamless.’
