Routers allow you to manage the many video feeds coming in and out of our facility. A basic router can take any source and put it on any output. This allows you to save inputs on your switcher by having a single set of sources routed from the router to the switcher and then in the router select which sources are routed to those inputs on the switcher. From the switcher, you can control what sources and routed to the destinations connected to the switcher, fire salvos, get sources names, and send tally information back to the switcher.
