Bridge Technologies Expands Intelligent Redundancy Line with New VB243 for ASI



OSLO, Norway - 06.08.14

At IBC 2014, Bridge Technologies will introduce the VB243, a new addition to the company's line of Intelligent Redundancy Switch products. Following from the VB273 for DVB-S/S2, the VB243 employs the same concept in a version for ASI, with advanced analysis and decision engine technology providing a highly autonomous redundancy switch capability.

The VB243 benefits from the array of sophisticated analysis technologies deployed in Bridge Technologies' range of digital media monitoring probes, coupled with a decision engine that can operate according to rules defined by the user for any operating conditions. A wide range of system metrics and rules can be set for validation of the input status on both sources, together with switch-back rules to allow for any combination of fully or partially autonomous scenarios, or manual switching.

The VB243 system is delivered in a robust chassis with redundant power supplies, and the switching module features magnetically-latched relays, guaranteeing signal pass-through even if the card is removed with intact cabling. The signal from each input source is transferred to its own ASI interface and then to the controller module with its award-winning ETR290 analysis engine.

Designed to provide a more reliable autonomous switching capability than the previous generation of products, the VB243 can nevertheless accommodate semi-manual or completely manual operation if required. The unit supports partial or complete remote control from a network management system, and can be operated in a SuperLocal mode, in which all remote commands are disabled. Front panel illuminated controls and a graphical illuminated representation of the signal path make it simple to understand and control the VB243 in situations where local manual control is required.

"The intelligence embodied in this line of redundancy switch products allows operators to make much more effective provision for any failures in the signal channel," said Bridge Technologies' Chairman Simen Frostad.

"By including the very nuanced and powerful analysis capabilities of our core technologies in the VB243 and the other products in the series, we have been able to take redundancy switching to a new level."
