Glimmerglass has teamed with PESA Switching Systems to demonstrate the world's first photonic routing switcher at NAB 2004 in Las Vegas (April 17-22).

An industry first, this solution switches video as laser-beams instead of as electrical voltages, delivering performance that far exceeds conventional routing switchers. Using less power than a small light bulb, the photonic routing switcher can switch bandwidths of 40 Gb/s on each of its fiber links over distances of more than 20 kilometers.
