Overview Route66 – Video AutoRouter

Route66 Video AutoRouter is a solution dedicated for small and large studio facilities with multiple connection points and mobile stageboxes.

Multiple Route66 Video AutoRouters are interconnected to create an advance routing array, which is specified and built in close cooperation with the customer. Thanks to this, customer receivers a cost efficient, application engineered solution tailored to his requirements.

Video AutoRouter array enables very quick set changes in studio, without necessity of complex programming each time. Video, audio and data channels always follow the stagebox, whenever it is connected. Thanks to sophisticated design Route66 Video AutoRouter array automatically discovers stagebox movement and patches all pre-programmes channels to the port where stagebox is actually connected. The system enables multiple stagebox connection, each stagebox with its unique patch.
On a day-to-day basis no user control is required and all the advanced routing action is done in the background.
