Routing Switcher

12G-SDI compatibility across all 72 inputs and 72 outputs brings powerful support to 4K and 8K routing

Add up to eight I/O cards, with nine channels per card. Configure a matrix of up to 72 x 72 inputs and outputs. Building on solid MFR series performance, the MFR-4000 inspires confidence in management through redundancy and easy maintenance. What’s more, when adding a 4K matrix with 3G-SDI routers, 12G-SDI support enables single-cable transfer of 4K video without complex cabling and fewer channels. Take advantage of the space saved by reducing cables.

12G-SDI Support

Conventional 3G-SDI routing switchers require 4 crosspoints for input and output of 4K video. With 12G-SDI, 4K can be carried over a single crosspoint. The MFR-4000 also determines the type of SDI input automatically-no need to worry about what signals are supplied.

Gearbox Functionality

4K conversion (12G-SDI/quad link 3G-SDI, 2SI/SQD)

Add the MFR-2SDIGB and MFR-2SDOGB cards for conversion of video (quad link 3G-SDI/12G-SDI) and mapping (2SI/SQD) formats. These options open the door for equipment previously incompatible with 12G-SDI, enabling system building focused on this new specification.

Solid Performance in Seven Features

Multi-format video input and output

Support for 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI and DVB-ASI input and output. No need to worry about signal formats, thanks to auto signal detection.

Outstanding redundancy

As core system components, FOR-A routing switchers can incorporate redundancy to ensure nonstop operation in case of problems.

– Redundant CPU board (optional MFR-CPUA)

– Redundant power supply (optional MFR-PSA)

– Router linkage: Parallel operation of two routing switchers ensures matrix redundancy and enables quadruple redundancy of the power supply unit and CPU board.

SNMP monitoring

Can be integrated into an SNMP monitoring system. Enables monitoring of various operational states, such as power, fan, and CPU status, SDI signal input or output, and crosspoint errors. If system failure and recovery occur, SNMP traps are sent to managers.

GUI-based configuration

A built-in webserver enables immediate setup without installing software on external devices. Via this interface, settings can also be configured in an offline environment.

Versatile crosspoint control

Besides typical crosspoint switching, the unit enables a variety of crosspoint control.

– Salvo

– Take

– Link

– Error-proofing (Inhibit, Lock)

Interface expansion units

Three types of interface expansion units are available to suit specific applications.

– MFR-TALM: Tally Manager

– MFR-RULINK: Remote Control Relay Unit


Connectivity with other products

Can be remote-controlled through the Ethernet or serial ports. Compatibility with common protocols such as TSL and Harris enables tally linkage or auto source name tracking for crosspoint switching. As well as our exclusive interface to the FOR-A line of HVS production switchers and standalone multi viewers.
