Note: Please use description below as a reference for Sierra Video NLE Series routing switchers. Models may vary.

Non-linear editing facilities often need to route a variety of signal formats into and out of their editing system. The Sierra NLE™ multi-level, multi-format routing switcher offers that level of flexibility and much more. Designed specifically for small to mid-sized non-linear editing facilities routing multiple formats, the 8x8 and 16x16 NLE switchers can be configured to include HD-SDI/SDI multi-rate video, SDI-only video, AES/EBU digital audio, analog video and/ or Y/C, RGB/YUV, and analog stereo audio, with optional RS-422 machine control in a separate 1RU frame.

Features:

  • Matrix Mapping Universal Breakaway™ Switching for multi-format use
  • Adjustable audio gain and attenuation with no zipper effect
  • Room grouping of inputs for flexible configuration in multi room applications
  • Front panel control Interface with LCD display
  • IP and RS-232 control
  • Full range of remote control panels available

Matrix Mapping Universal Breakaway™ Switching:
The Sierra NLE switcher is designed to allow each level of a single input or output to be used independently for various formats. If a Sierra NLE switcher is fully configured with all 7 levels installed, a user can connect some combination of up to three video signals (analog video which takes up one level, s-Video (YC) which takes up two levels, component video (YUV) or RGB video, both of which take up three levels) to the video levels of any input. They can also simultaneously connect an SDI video signal, an AES/EBU digital audio signal and either a balanced stereo audio signal or two mono audio signals to the same input. In the Sierra NLE routing switcher, each level of an input can be switched independently or in conjunction with any combination of the other levels on that input to the corresponding level of any combination of the outputs. That is multi-format, multi-level switching.
