Polatis Enters Pro AV Market

Publish date:

Polatis Inc., a supplier of high performance optical switch technologies, today announced its move into the Professional AV market with its Trinity all optical routing switch. Photonic switching has long been the standard in other applications but this is the first time it will be available to the Pro AV market.

The move comes as fiber transport for high bandwidth video, audio and data is becoming more widespread in Pro AV applications. Large venues such as stadiums, corporate and college campuses as well as medical centers are implementing fiber infrastructures. Therefore a more reliable and high performance switch, which can remotely route signals to disparate destinations is required.

"There is a real convergence happening in the video market with Pro A/V applications turning increasingly to HD and 1080p, much like traditional broadcast," said Sean Gordon, Sales Director, Video Products. "With deeper HD penetration fiber transport is the only practical transport medium; optical switching and routing therefore becomes key in creating efficient video architectures."

"While optical transport has been used for some time in defense and mission critical applications today there are new and exciting applications using HD cameras in operating theaters and routing the video to classrooms and other viewing areas at considerable distance. Fiber and fiber routing are facilitating these applications," adds Gordon.
