Two major broadcasters in the Netherlands, RTL Nederland and SBS Broadcasting, have both chosen the Trinix™ NXT from Grass Valley™ as their new digital video routing switcher. The Trinix NXT is designed for SDI, HD-SDI, and 3 Gb/s video signals, with its 3 Gb/s performance capabilities allowing cable lengths up to at least 140m.

At each facility, the Trinix NXT routing switcher will be controlled by a Grass Valley Jupiter™ CM 4000 redundant controller, and AccuSwitch™ software to meet the operational challenges of these leading broadcasters. The high reliability of the Trinix NXT routing switcher offers secure and reliable performance, in mission critical, 24/7 applications.

“We already had the SD version of the Trinix routing switcher installed in our facility," said Hank van de Loo, Technical Director of RTL Nederland. “Because of its technical design, we could very easily and quickly switch to the HD-SDI and 3 Gb/s version just by inserting new matrix cards. A big advantage for us is that the Trinix architecture allows us to work with long cable runs: with studios, edit suites, and playout spread across our facility.”

“The Trinix NXT routing switcher gives SBS the ability to switch every type of video signal for broadcasting in HD and 3D,” added Josbert van Rooijen, Broadcast and IT Manager at SBS Broadcasting. “It has an unparalleled track record when it comes to reliability and scalability, which will allow us to quickly and easily expand the number of inputs and outputs.”

“We are delighted that these two major broadcasters have returned to Grass Valley for their next-generation routing switcher solutions,” said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President for Grass Valley. “Our routing switchers have an excellent reputation in the Netherlands, and we continually strive to deliver the performance and functionality that our customers demand.”

SBS Broadcasting and RTL Nederland joined Technicolor’s broadcast business and the majority of the outside broadcast trucks in the Netherlands in relying on the Trinix NXT digital video routing switcher, the most reliable, scalable, and versatile routing switcher in the market. Worldwide, Trinix is one of the most popular digital routing switchers on the market with configurations as large as 2048x2048, with the highest level of signal protection available.
