KAIROS Core 100 is the entry-level Core supporting a 100Gb network with a more modest GPU than the larger KAIROS Core 1000, but powerful enough to match or exceed the processing capacity and feature set of a three or four ME hardware based switcher.  A simple KAIROS system can be built around a single KC100 utilizing the Deltacast input modules or a small 100Gb network switch and ST 2110 gateways sufficient to support up to a 32 x16 3G SDI configuration. Such a system is a powerful, middle-market system perfect for a House of Worship, a small TV Station as well as a multi-room AV deployment on a corporate or college campus. It can also be used for a simple multi camera production and is also especially powerful for a hybrid remote production, which simultaneously utilizes remote streaming and local base-band inputs.

Variety of video inputs and outputs available for use

Compatible with various input and output signals

KAIROS fully supports baseband signal (12G/3G/HD-SDI, HDMI, Display Port) and IP packet (ST 2110, NDI®*1, RTP) input and output. In addition to RTP, RTMP, and RTSP, the SRT*2 streaming protocol is supported for superior stability and security. And it is equipped with 8 input channels of Kairos Core 1000 or 6 input channels of Kairos Core 100 and 2 output channels, and each channel can be set to selected protocol.*3 Audio input/output is supported 16 channels each for NDI® and SRT, and 8 channels each for RTMP and RTSP.

*1: NDI® is a new protocol developed by NewTek, Inc. that supports IP video production workflow. NDI® is a registered trademark of NewTek, Inc. in the United States. In this instance, NDI® is used to indicate low latency with high bandwidth NDI®.
*2: SRT stands for Secure Reliable Transport.
*3: For RTSP, only input is supported. Note that RTSP input does not work with the AW-HE130W/K (Discontinued) and AW-HR140 PTZ cameras.

System Integration Example (IP-based)

System Integration Example (SDI-based)

* Deltacast FLEX modules are required for baseband input/output.
* When using Deltacast and ST 2110 simultaneously, the Deltacast port connection will be 4 ports. (AT-KC100 only)



Agile Input Routing expands number of I/O

Agile Input Routing Outline Diagram, Example in ST 2110 for AT-KC1000T

Input/output functions of KAIROS has been expanded and strengthened by the "Agile Input Routing" feature that flexibly allocates GPU I/O capability according to the bandwidth of video source.

For example, up to 64 inputs* and 40 outputs* of 1080i and 720p signal can be connected to on a single mainframe with ST 2110 network.
This allows using in larger scale live productions with more scenes and more input sources.
KAIROS removes input restriction to be connected to a system and realize more efficient use of ST 2110 network and other inputs such as Deltacast, NDI®, SRT and other streaming inputs.

* Input and output totals are on a best-effort basis using the Kairos Core 1000 mainframe and 1080/60i or 720/60p video for all I/O sources. The Kairos Core 100 with the AT-SF002 I/O option offers a maximum 48 inputs and 32 outputs.

*2: NDI®: Max. 2 CH input/2 CH output for both AT-KC1000 and AT-KC100.
*3: RTP/SRT/RTMP/RTSP: max. 8 CH input/2 CH output for AT-KC1000, max. 6 CH input/2 CH output for AT-KC100.

Resolution independent

Standard video formats with different resolutions such as 4K/HD can be mixed and used. I/P conversion of input enables the use of 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i interlaced video inputs/output.
