Sierra Video Announces Aspen™ 3232 Multi -format Routing Switcher

The 3G HD-SDI Model is Compact, Energy Efficient and Capable of Driving Long Cable Runs!

GRASS VALLEY, CA - Sierra Video today announced the release of the Aspen 3232, the first model in a new line of compact video 3G HD -SDI routing switchers. The Aspen line will be a line of general utility 3G HD -SDI routing switchers ideal for use in any video installation, including rental and staging applications, higher education facilities, houses of worship, hospitals, broadcast facilities and post production facilities. The Aspen 3232 is a multi -rate router compatible with 3G, HD -SDI and SDI signals from 19 Mb/s to 2.97 Gb/s (3G).


The Aspen 3232 is compact at only 2.5" deep and takes up just 2RU in a standard equipment rack. The Aspen 3232 is also tremendously energy efficient, requiring less than 32 Watts of power including the power consumed by its standard built -in routing switcher control system and front panel panel..

A unique feature of the Aspen 3232 is that, due to its advanced technology, this router can drive signals farther than most typical 3G HD -SDI routing switchers. The Aspen 3232HD3G can drive 3G signals over 500ft (155 meters using Belden 1694A cable).

The Aspen 3232 routing switcher is a format -flexible 3G HD -SDI routing switcher capable of handling all SMPTE serial digital video signal formats on every input of the router including SMPTE 424M, SMPTE 259M, SMPTE 344M and DVB -ASI up to 540 Mbps and 3G and HD -SDI video signals conforming to SMPTE 292M (1.485GBps single link). The Sierra Video Aspen 3232 router also provides user control of the Input Equalization and Output Re -clocking circuitry. When using non -SMPTE signals the Re -clockers can be bypassed if required, so they do not interfere with the signal.

The introduction of the Aspen 3232 coincides with the introduction of Sierra's new control system architecture based on IP, SNMP, and a web interface. The Aspen 3232's embedded controller can be accessed via the TCP -IP or RS 232/422 serial interface making it easy to integrate into any automation or control system. The built -in web server offers convenient control and setup functions and works with any OS, browser and most handheld devices.

The Aspen 3232 includes a front panel control lockout and offers the ability to create and launch salvos. Companion audio routers are also available for the Aspen 3232 and are controllable by the embedded controller. A redundant power supply option is also available.

The Aspen 3232 multi -format routing switcher is the first model in a line of compact Aspen routers to be introduced in coming months and it is currently available from Sierra Video Systems and its worldwide reseller network.
