All Routes Lead to BroaMan at IBC2016


BroaMan technical director Marc Brunke presents the Route66

At this year’s IBC 2016, BroaMan found the perfect platform from which to springboard its new Route66 family of routers into the broadcast markets and associated sectors.

The German company carried on where they left off at this year’s NAB Show, where the new Route66 AutoRouter picked up a prestigious award. Supporting DiGiCo, as well as standalone Optocore systems it closes the ring automatically once a mobile stagebox is added or removed from the system

“Many clients and distributors were talking about this product,” said managing director, Tine Helmle. “They love the device and the stand was buzzing.”


Also shown for the very first time was the new Route66 40/40, and a highly successful press launch formed the hub of the five-day show. Presented by BroaMan technical director Marc Brunke, the international press audience was enrapt as he explained the evolution of the Route66 platform since it was invented as a custom solution for SVT, the Swedish National broadcaster, exactly five years ago to the month.

Available in three versions, the latest Route66 series will provide single channel, non-blocking 40 x 40 router ports in three versions — all with directly accessible fibre SFP (Small Form Factor Pluggable) or SDI. Additionally each new Route66 features fibre ports which can be used to access built-in CWDM or DWDM multiplexers.


Once again Tine Helmle was delighted with the reaction, both from partners and press alike. “It was extremely well accepted and both distributors and resellers seemed highly impressed,” she said. “We picked up high quality leads continuously right through the show — including the last day, which is generally quiet.”

To have received so much positive feedback indicates that BroaMan is well accepted as a market leader for professional video fiber infrastructure.
