Total Flexibility
Sirius 800 is the most flexible platform for hybrid video and audio
routing available. Additionally, Advanced Hybrid Processing (AHP)
is the most flexible and powerful processing available in a router.
Hybrid Routing
Traditional system designs requiring
video and mixed format audio
(embedded, AES and MADI) needed
separate video and audio routers
with external de-embedding and
embedding equipment. This was
housed in multiple different chassis’
taking 4 or more equipment bays.
With Sirius 800 this can now be
accomplished in a single chassis.
The cost and space savings are
huge. Operating costs are massively
reduced, and with less equipment
and cabling, reliability is greatly
increased.
Multi-Format Routing and Processing
in a Single Chassis
The unique architecture of Sirius 800
with AHP allows huge operational
flexibility. Processing is available on
every input and output.
All input module positions can be
fitted with standard video modules
which pass video with embedded
audio transparently. Alternatively,
video AHP modules can process and
de-embed audio from a video signal.
Or AES or MADI input modules can
be fitted, to route any discrete audio
signals present.
Advanced Hybrid Processing
Every single channel is handled
independently. This allows all signals
to have completely different formats,
timing and synchronization. All audio
can then be routed to any output,
with no limitations. For example,
1080i/50 video input could have it’s
audio de-embedded and routed
to a 720p/59.94 output, where the
audio is embedded. Mis-timed video
inputs can be re-aligned to the local
reference.
Critical video outputs can be
fitted with line synchronizers, to
allow clean switching of the signal,
Unsynchronized commentary from
an AES input can also be embedded
into the same video output. If signal
levels are not as expected, gains can
be adjusted. A mono version of a
stereo signal can be created (e.g. for
IP streaming) and embedded on any
channel as required.
Input Embedding
Unique to Sirius 800. Embed any
audio channel on the router
(embedded, AES or MADI) into a
video input - direct from the audio
crosspoint, replacing or passing
through any existing incoming
embedded audio as required.
There's no need to embed on
outputs, loop out and wrap around
to inputs. This saves cost, reduces
the number of modules and power
requirements, and simplifies the
system architecture.
Advanced
Hybrid Processing
This format and timing independence
reduces the complexity of system
planning, and ensures that a system
installed now will handle future
updates as the system grows.

Sirius 800 – Key Features
Signal Formats
A range of input and output options
are available, allowing a mix in any
combination of:
• SDI/ASI – Standard video – 24
channel
• SDI with AHP (embedded audio
processing and routing) – 24
channel
• 120 AES channels, balanced or
unbalanced
• MADI - 12 dual redundant inputs
and outputs
For video and MADI, interfaces
include:
• Fiber – for space and cost savings
associated with fiber transmission
over longer distances
• Coax - for simplicity of local
connections.
Advanced Hybrid Processing on
Inputs and Outputs
The unique architecture, with
processing available on every
input and output offers significant
advantages over other hybrid routers.
Processing on inputs • Re-time incoming video to one of
four references, with timing offsets if
required
• Set up incoming signals as required
when they come into your router
• Shuffle audio track arrangements to
a house standard
• Adjust audio gains to match local
line up levels
• Create mono mixes of stereo inputs
• Mute unwanted audio channels
• Add audio delay to specific
channels to compensate for system
delays
Processing on outputs - adjust if
required when signals leave your
router.
• Adjust audio parameters and tracks
as on inputs
• Line synchronize for glitch free video
switching
• Set up channels to meet external
customer requirements

System Design Advantages
Input and output processing
capability allows for huge space,
cabling, cost and power savings.
External processing and ‘wraparound’ cabling to add processing
loops is eliminated, meaning
increased routing capacity is made
available.
Audio processed on input modules
is then re-embedded into the video
on the input module. This means
processed audio will be routed to
all standard video output modules,
allowing a reduced number of
processing modules to be used, and
therefore reducing cost.
Routing is via independent crosspoint
modules for video and audio, with
redundant capability for both signal
types for extra resilience (in addition to
redundant PSUs, control and cooling).
Because of the modular design,
Advanced Hybrid Processing modules
can be fitted where required, allowing
the system to be tailored to specific
system needs.
Integrated control allows operational
workflows designed around user
needs: For example, Preselected
inputs can be automatically routed to
a monitoring station, where they can
be conformance checked before
routing to air.
De-Embedding for Live Production
Typical Scenario
An incoming signal contains
embedded audio. Some additional
audio from a different source arrives
on a MADI carrier. The audio must be
mixed and re-embedded on a video
feed to a satellite uplink.
Sirius 800 Solution
Because Sirius 800 can
accommodate and route all signal
formats in any combination within
one chassis, individual audio channels
from a video feed and a MADI feed
can be routed to the same MADI
output.
Audio is de-embedded from the
video and routed to a MADI output,
which is connected to the audio
mixing desk.
Some audio channels are also routed
to the same MADI output of the router.
This presents all audio that is required
for the audio mix on a single MADI
connection.
The mixer outputs a MADI signal
containing the required output
program mix. The MADI is connected
back into the router. The audio
channels from the MADI are routed to
an embedding output. The Sirius 800
re-embeds the audio channels into
the required video feed.

Lines In Processing
Typical Scenario
A Lines In area has multiple satellite
feeds from overseas, and fiber feeds
from remote venues. Signals need to
be adjusted to meet internal house
standards before feeding to local
studio and playout areas.
Sirius 800 Solution
Sirius 800 with Advanced Hybrid
Processing allows each input to be
adjusted independently of all others.
• Satellite and remote fiber feeds may
be non synchronous and of different
formats (1080i/59.94 ,1080i/50, 525,
625).
• Overseas feeds may have audio
lined up to levels incompatible with
the local house standard.
• Embedded audio channel
mapping does not match the house
standard.
Because each video and audio
channel is totally format and timing
independent, any number of different
formats can be processed on a single
input AHP module, saving cost and
space.
Firstly, external video is re-timed to
the local reference, to ensure SMPTE
compliant switching. Audio is then
de-embedded, then tracks swapped
to match the house standard. Audio
line up levels are adjusted as needed.
A mono mix is created from a stereo
pair for use in streaming applications.
Finally, the adjusted audio is reembedded onto the video and
passed to the video crosspoint, and
all adjusted audio is fed to the audio
crosspoint for use as needed.
All inputs can be monitored using
the four multi format input/output
monitoring outputs available on all
Sirius 800 chassis, or by simply routing
to a QC station from any router
output. Processing control will follow
any channel routing selection, making
QC operations simple and intuitive.
• New audio mixes are also required.

Resilience
Typical Scenario
• A Lines In / Studio routing taking
signals from several venues
• Video feeds are via local area fiber
link using CWDM
• Audio is via MADI on fiber link
• Local studio connections use coax
• Resilience for live production is
critical.
Sirius 800 Solution
• For Video, dual fiber CWDM
connections are fed to the studio.
External IQ modular CWDM
demultiplexers convert signals to
individual fire wavelengths. Fiber SFP
receivers fitted to the router accept
all wavelengths for routing each
signal independently.
• For Audio, MADI fiber inputs are dual
redundant, and have automatic or
manual changeover between main
and redundant input if the main
signal fails.
• All signals then route through
redundant crosspoints with
automatic or manual changeover.
• Signal detection in Sirius 800 allows
input signals to be monitored and
redundant inputs to be switched
into circuit automatically if the main
input feed fails.
