Customization Services : If you require a specific solution for audio, video or data manipulation please call us to discuss your needs. The OSBP-04 card is powered by a powerful FPGA, multiple microprocessors, high density expansion ports etc thus allowing the card to be re-purposed for a variety of tasks.

The broadcast platform is used in an openGear®2 or openGear®3 frame where up to 10 cards can be installed in a single 2RU frame. The cards can be fully monitored and configured using the OG Dashboard interface.

Increasingly broadcasters are being asked to provide more and more facilities with greatly reduced budgets. The AXUS platform has been designed not only to meet your current needs but provide an upgrade path into the future. Generally as new technology emerges new products must be designed from the ground-up. With our product we have taken the “Motherboard / Daughterboard” approach. This methodology has been incorporated so we can quickly and easily provide solutions to problems or new technology as they materialize. In this way we can quickly develop new interfaces without having to re-engineer the entire product.

The added advantage to the end user is a common platform across multiple standards.
