Video studios utilize Glimmerglass solutions to automate video equipment and network configurations, resulting in faster connections and reconfigurations while reducing OPEX. Glimmerglass Switcher solutions have been deployed by studios to dramatically reduce lifetime equipment CAPEX, network management OPEX, while increasing network availability and providing investment protection.
Video studios require a flexible, easy to use, method of connecting video cameras with receivers and displays. They must accomplish this with legacy equipment as well as new equipment with increased video speeds and different formats. Video studios are looking for ways to continue to produce engaging content while managing these changes in technology, reducing total cost of ownership of their studio and ensuring profitability.
Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Switchers create a dynamic physical layer to help address ever changing equipment in a studio. By adding flexibility and intelligence to a studios physical layer and pushing optical-electrical conversion further to the camera and receivers, Glimmerglass leverages all the advantages of purely optical, photonic signal management. Video paths can evolve from 4K to 8K to 16K without the need for a switching fabric upgrade. In addition, CWDM and DWDM bundles in transport can be redirected on one fiber, and wavelength management at network nodes can be carried out without the complexity of wavelength hardware compatibility. With Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Switchers, any signal traveling over fiber can be redirected in milliseconds, without adversely affecting video traffic.
