KUMO 6464-12G is a 64×64 Compact 12G-SDI Router with 8K, 4K, 3G, HD, SD Support
With KUMO 6464-12G, professionals can easily route and control video with embedded audio to/from BNC connections with auto reclocking of SDI rates. The KUMO routers can be configured for ganged dual and quad-port routing, so that users can easily combine multiple inputs and outputs for Dual Link, 4K, UltraHD and 8K workflows, enabling seamless routing of uncompressed, compressed, or Raw 4K signals throughout a facility.
“Interest in 12G-SDI is surging among live production and post professionals as workflows grow more complex with increasing adoption of UltraHD, HDR and even 8K. The positive response to our KUMO 1616-12G and KUMO 3232-12G routers reinforced the need for increased capacity 12G routing, so naturally, we’re excited to announce KUMO 6464-12G with 64 inputs and 64 outputs, especially for environments where compact size and substantial routing capacity are critical,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
KUMO 6464-12G offers increased capacity for larger configurations while maintaining a compact 4RU profile with support for 12G-SDI/6G-SDI/3G-SDI/1.5G-SDI with 64x 12G-SDI inputs and 64x 12G-SDI outputs.
KUMO 12G-SDI routers support large format resolutions, high frame rate (HFR) and deep color formats while reducing cable runs when transporting 4K/UltraHD over a single SDI link. Multi-link gang control also offers routing of up to 8K resolutions. The router offers network-based and physical control using KUMO CP and CP2 and mirrors the physical form of AJA’s production-proven KUMO 6464 router, with a USB port for configuring IP addresses via AJA’s free eMini-Setup software.
Built to the same quality standards as all AJA KUMO products, KUMO 6464-12G is the ideal choice for any situation where a balance of size, performance and capacity are critical such as post facilities and mobile trucks.

KUMO compact SDI routers provide powerful signal control and support full broadcast specifications over 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI, with quality that exceeds SMPTE specifications. The super-compact 1RU and 2RU and 4RU formats are just a few inches deep, making them a perfect fit for any broadcast, production, or post-production environment, from mobile sports trucks and edit suites, through to corporate video installations or live theatrical A/V rigs.
KUMO SDI routers are available in six configurations: Two for 12G/6G/3G/1.5G-SDI and four for 3G/1.5G-SDI routing needs.
For 3G-SDI look to KUMO 6464 for 64x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 3232 for 32x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, KUMO 1616 for 16x 3G-SDI inputs and outputs and KUMO 1604 for 16x 3G-SDI inputs and 4x 3G-SDI outputs.
Powerful Signal Control
KUMO’s powerful cross-point routing matrix maps any input to any number of outputs without the need for additional patch panels or distribution amplifiers. Use KUMO as an affordable distribution amplifier by routing a single input to all outputs. Used in this way, a KUMO 3232-12G can take the place of multiple distribution amplifiers.
As 8K emerges and 4K/UltraHD workflows continue to gain ground, KUMO routers can meet the rising challenge. KUMO 12G-SDI routers offer single-link cable simplicity for 4K/UltraHD and with a simple setting change, KUMO 12G-SDI routers can be configured for ganged dual-link or quad-link grouping allowing users to group together multiple inputs and outputs for 8K workflows and similarly, KUMO 3G-SDI routers for dual or quad-link 4K/UltraHD workflows. This allows routing of raw or 8K or 4K/UltraHD signals throughout a production, live event, OB truck or post facility.
Broadcast Standard Reliability
Designed for critical broadcast, production and post environments, KUMO routers are built to AJA standards that exceed SMPTE specifications. The use of premium components coupled with dual redundant power supplies ensures the highest signal quality and maximum up-time even in the unexpected event of a power supply failure.
Simple Installation and Configuration
Running Embedded Linux, KUMO routers are network ready and support powerful HTTP control and monitoring via a web browser – without the need for any additional software.
KUMO’s USB port connection allows easy IP configuration using free AJA eMini-Setup software. Alternatively, standard network configuration allows access to each 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.
KUMO routers are easily integrated with existing infrastructure utilising the industry-standard Grass Valley Native Protocol over RS-422 or even Ethernet. Ethernet network connectivity also allows you to control all KUMO routers from any web browser on a network-connected device, ensuring you have the control you need from any location.
New salvos support simplifies switching operations by recalling multiple sources to specific destinations. Salvos are stored in a KUMO router and can be recalled via the KUMO router’s Web UI, GVG Native Protocol over Ethernet, RS-232, and/or the AJA KUMO CP2 Salvos buttons.
Eight Salvos can be configured and stored in each KUMO router. Salvos allow the operator to quickly recall predefined sources to specific destinations configurations with a simple button press.
Redundant Power Supplies
Routers are a key piece of infrastructure at the heart of a facility. Downtime is not an option, especially in critical installations.
Every KUMO router is equipped with dual, redundant power supplies to ensure continuous up-time even in the unexpected event of a power supply failure. Front panel indicators and web UI warnings inform you if a power supply goes offline, allowing for replacement while the router is still operational.
KUMO CP2 and KUMO CP
Connecting via Ethernet to the same network as the KUMO routers, KUMO CP and KUMO CP2 enables full control from any location without the need for a computer. Up to four KUMO routers can be controlled from a single control panel.
KUMO CP2 offers direct access to all 32 inputs and 32 outputs for the KUMO range up through the KUMO 3232-12G, and with a simple click of the shift key, addresses all 64 sources and destinations for the KUMO 6464.
AJA’s technical support is recognised as one of the best in the industry and is available at no extra charge to all AJA customers. If you need assistance with any aspect of KUMO installation, configuration or operation, AJA support will work with you to get up and running.
Also, KUMO routers are covered by AJA’s 5-year international warranty and advance replacement. Replacement units, if needed, are shipped immediately and the previous unit can be shipped back to AJA once the issue has been resolved.
