Routing System
Finally a solution that integrates the digital audio console router frame and
the Euphonix StudioHub (SH612) with the main facility router. This eliminates
the need for two routing and I/O systems in certain broadcast applications
resulting in considerable cost savings and increased efficiency of operation.

• Huge cost savings – console I/O and SH612 becomes an audio level to

the router. Customers buy I/O once with console.
• Compact 2U router, reduced I/O devices – saves weight and rack space.

• Large capacity router – 768x768 versus traditional frame limit of 256x256.
• Euphonix StudioHub router is a TDM router. Digital AES/EBU pairs are
treated as two signals that can be separated unlike many digital routing
frames which do not allow the separate processing of an AES/EBU pair.
