NAB 2011: New Axon Shuffler/Re-Embedder Works With Synapse

Axon’s GRB100 is a 48×16 channel shuffler/re-embedder compatible with the company’s Synapse modular broadcast system. The source audio channels used for embedding into the SDI output can be derived from two individual 3-Gbps HD or SD inputs and from the 32 channels that are available in the quad-speed multiplexing audio add-on bus. The output can embed 16 channels, and the source for this audio can be derived from both SDI input 1 (which normally also carries the video) and from SDI input 2. Input 2 can be connected to a second SDI source dedicated to carrying audio. The GRB100 can be used in combination with a Synapse Dolby E decoder or Synapse loudness-control module. The HRB100 can be upgraded to GRB100, allowing for staged implementation of HD infrastructures and spreading the cost over multiple budget years.
