Platinum™ IP3 delivers the highest integration of routing technology available.

Available in 28RU and 15RU models.

Field-tested and proven, running 24/7, our routers are at the core of SDI, hybrid SDI/IP and all-IP environments in broadcast and media operations worldwide.

Platinum IP3 supports a range of applications, from workflows at multichannel video programming distributors, large national broadcasters or network hubs that require thousands of inputs and outputs (I/O), to studios and mobile production trucks.

Protect Video, Audio and Multiviewer Signals

Platinum IP3 is the only router in the industry that protects audio, video and multiviewer signals. By adding redundant crosspoints to the Platinum line’s uniquely integrated architecture, the next-generation platform reduces cost and complexity, while maximizing on-air security.

Enhanced Control and Monitoring

Offering a highly intuitive, centralized controller that simplifies communications management between the router and other connected components. A rich, web-based user interface and template-driven configuration simplify access to information, speed setup of both the database and system, and enable updates to publish to the entire system in seconds — without going off-air.

Integrated Multiviewer

Platinum SX Pro is an output module that operates in any current Platinum router chassis (5, 9, 15 or 28RU). Occupying from one to four slots, the module can reside alone in a Platinum frame and function exclusively as a multiviewer or can be combined with routing cards for ultimate flexibility. Platinum SX Pro is capable of monitoring from 16 to 512 sources and driving up to 192 independent displays.

IP3 in the Real World

Videe’s OBX Gets Ready for their Live Production Future

“We chose the Platinum IP3 router from Imagine Communications because with in its 28RU frame it can handle all the switching we need – 512 x 1024 video and 8000 x 8000 audio – but it also houses a lot of other functionality, including the multiviewers. That is a great example of smart systems meeting practical needs, not least through processing density.”
