As the broadcast industry continues its transition to 4K, German manufacturer Jünger Audio has introduced Netbridge UHD - a new, advanced interface that closes the gap between digital audio production systems and modern video formats.
This 19-inch product allows for simple and fast integration of 4K-UHD or four HD video streams into MADI and AoIP (AES67 and DANTE™) infrastructures. With its four 3G SDI interfaces, Netbridge UHD is also ideal as an audio video front end for small and medium-sized video editing suites or workstations.
With its full blown 64 channel interfaces, including MADI and AoIP, Netbridge UHD links all kinds of production systems so that audio signals can be easily connected to one 4K-UHD or four independent 3G/HD/SD SDI data streams. This enables the unit to manage any channel configuration from stereo to high-channel count immersive audio.
Netbridge UHD is configured and operated via a standard web browser, with all system parameters also controlled by the Ember+™ protocol, thus ensuring simple integration with any broadcast automation or scheduling system.
Junger Audio’s Netbridge series also includes Netbridge MADI, which provides an AES67 alternative to the 1:1 translation between MADI and DanteTM. The system is equipped with two independent 64-channel bridges and can thus translate up to 128 channels between IP and classic MADI systems.
