Cost effective, without compromising power or flexibility, KUMO compact SDI routers provide powerful signal control and support full broadcast specifications over 3G-SDI, with quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications. The super compact 1RU, 2RU and 4RU sizes are just a few inches deep, making them a perfect fit for any broadcast, production, or post production environment.

Running embedded Linux®, KUMO routers are network ready and support full HTTP control and monitoring. KUMO’s internal web server allows immediate installation, configuration, and operation with standard web browsers – so there’s no need to purchase or install any additional software. The new optional 2RU networkable control panel (KUMO CP2) can control all KUMOs, including the KUMO 6464, in stand-alone or networked configurations enabling comprehensive control without the need of a computer.

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

As 4K/UltraHD workflows continue to gain ground, KUMO routers can meet the rising challenge. With a simple setting change, KUMO routers can be configured for ganged dual and quad port routing, allowing users to group together multiple inputs and outputs for dual-link, 4K/UltraHD workflows. This allows routing of uncompressed or raw 4K/UltraHD signals throughout a production or post facility. Then switch the router back to 2K/HD/SD operation as needed, giving you the flexibility to route virtually any format in your facility.

Eight Salvos can be configured and stored in a KUMO router.  Salvos allow the operator to quickly recall predefined sources to
specific destinations configurations with a simple button press.  KUMO SDI routers are available in four configurations: 16×4, 16×16, 32×32 and 64×64.

KUMO compact SDI routers offer AJA reliability, flexibility and uncompromising signal quality, all at an unprecedented price. Built to the exacting standards of all AJA hardware, KUMO products are backed by our world class support network, five year international warranty and advanced exchange service.
