AJA: 1616

KUMO 1616 strikes the perfect balance of capacity and size.


At just 1RU, KUMO 1616 fits into the smallest rack space while providing routing for 16 inputs and outputs at exceptionally high quality.

KUMO compact SDI routers are small and cost-effective, yet robust and reliable. KUMO supports full broadcast

specifications over SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G SDI. KUMO routers are a perfect fit for any broadcast, production, or post production environment. Running Embedded Linux, KUMO routers are network ready and support powerful HTTP control and monitoring. KUMO’s internal webserver allows immediate installation, configuration, and operation with standard web browsers - without any additional software to buy or install. An optional 1RU networkable control panel (KUMO CP) can be used in stand-alone or networked configurations.

KUMO SDI routers are available in two configurations: the KUMO 1616 supporting sixteen channels in and out, and the KUMO 1604 supporting sixteen SDI inputs and four outputs. Because of their compact 1RU size, KUMO SDI routers are ideal for space-sensitive applications such as mobile sports trucks, edit suites, corporate video installations, or live theatrical A/V rigs. KUMO compact SDI routers offer AJA-reliability, flexibility and state-of-the-art signal quality.


Installation of KUMO Compact routers is easy: with Bonjour, network configuration is automatic—just connect KUMO to your network or a computer. Alternatively, standard network configuration is also easy—just connect KUMO to your network, or a computer, and access KUMO via its default IP address. Once connected to KUMO using a web browser, you can configure the full TCP/IP settings, select and name KUMO routers, name sources and destinations, and perform all operational functions.For stand-alone configurations of KUMO routers with KUMO CP control panels only, just connect the KUMO components together with a standard RJ45 cable (or a switch, if needed).
KUMO compact SDI routers not only offer innovative architectures, they excel at providing configuration and control flexibility. Because all KUMO products are networkable, they are easy to set up in a networked environment or in stand-alone configurations. For control you can use either a web browser and/or the optional KUMO CP Control Panel, which feature direct push button control of router selections. KUMO Control Panels can be connected directly to KUMO routers or to the network. Easily scalable, KUMO systems can always expand as your needs do. Here are just some possible control scenarios:

• Stand-alone: up to 4 routers and 16 control panels can be set-up without ever connecting a computer. Just plug all the pieces into an Ethernet switch and power them up. KUMO auto-discovery software automatically assign routers to control panel delegations in a deterministic way, so you’re ready to use the system immediately.

• Network - computer control only: an unlimited number of KUMOs can be configured, networked, and controlled by web browser(s) using industry standard TCP/IP networking.

• Hybrid Network – computer(s) and KUMO Control Panel(s): hybrid systems can be created where there are both KUMO  Control Panels and computer web browsers providing router control.
