BroaMan gets back on Route 66

The new Route66 has been designed for standard smart fibre patchbay applications

Broadcast systems manufacturer BroaMan has launched a standard version of its Route66 configurable router series for customised video/audio designs. The latest fifth version is targeted for simpler, cost-effective standard cable management usage, specifically for the AV market and AV-friendly data centres and server rooms.

The new 2U design makes Route66 applicable to standard smart fibre patchbay applications. This smart patchbay allows routing of fibre/copper cables by software instead of a manual patch, enabling automated IP workflows and remote cable management. It also allows fibre/copper conversion without external devices.

The Route66 platform provides single channel, non-blocking 40x40 router ports, while the new standard version of Route66 offers 40 SFP+ slots for 40 hot-swappable bidirectional SFPs with each slot providing up to 4Gb performance. It is ideal for a vast combination of signals, such as Ethernet, fibre, up to 4K SDI, HDMI, Optocore and MADI. A wide range of fibre transceivers is also available.

The Route66 family offers built-in redundant power supplies and claims to have a low power consumption of 10–40W, reportedly making the system more energy-efficient than other models that depend on external 120W PSUs. The models are also designed with an upgraded passive cooling system to replace noisy fans.
