Thinklogical extends VX Router range

Offers non-blocking and bi-directional capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

Thinklogical, a provider of fiber optic KVM extension and switching offerings, has extended the VX Router range with the addition of two new models 320×320, and a compact 40×40 model.

The VX 320 Router is a non-blocking 320×320 matrix switch, capable of routing and switching up to 320 KVM or video sources to 320 KVM or video destinations. It can be used to compartmentalise sections of a larger broadcast studio and allows system components including power supplies, cooling fans and pluggable optics (SFP+) to be hot-swappable, the company said

According to Thinklogical, the hot-swappable I/O boards also provide expansion capabilities allowing VX Routers to be reconfigured without interrupting signal processing by powering down the router. The series offers non-blocking and bi-directional capabilities and allows multiple input signals to be available at one output.

All VX Router models provide 6.25Gbps signal capability, and supports a variety of signals, as well as other optical formats and high data rate signals. Advanced GUI options provide convenient user interface to the router from remote locations and allow for control of the switching between source computer or video entities and user display destinations, the company said.

Thinklogical said that VX Routers are controlled via an external Linux CPU (pc) module, which allows for customisation and administration with access provided via a network connection, or a serial port for 3rd party controller integration. In addition, they are equipped with LC type fibre connectors and offers integration with the company’s Velocity Series of fibre optic KVM and video transmitters and receivers.

Pete Henderson, VP of business development of Thinklogical, said: “As infrastructures grow, workflows change and it is critical that user’s can make and change connections right from their desktop computer using a GUI that has some familiarity to it. It also makes the programming and connection process easier to understand, plus the new larger size provides plenty of room to grow.”
