The 2RU Densité 2 Frame can simultaneously process 3Gbps, HD, SD, and analog video, as well as AES and analog audio. Its front-opening frame features dual hot swappable power supplies (PSUs) and fans. Modules for the air-cooled frame are also hot swappable, and replacement modules can be configured automatically. All modules, redundant PSUs and fans are monitored to deliver status via GPI or an optional Ethernet port. Front panel multi-color LEDs provide status reporting, while a controller card allows card adjustments by the front panel.

The 3RU Densité 3 Frame can simultaneously process 3Gbps, HD, SD, and analog video, as well as AES and analog audio and can be fitted with 3RU or 2RU Densité modules (using card extenders). Its front-opening frame features dual hot swappable power supplies (PSUs) and fans. Modules for the air-cooled frame are also hot swappable, and replacement modules can be configured automatically. All modules, redundant PSUs and fans are monitored to deliver status via GPI or an optional Ethernet port. Front panel multi-color LEDs provide status reporting, while a controller card allows card adjustments by the front panel.

The 1 RU Densité 3+ FR1 Frame offers true multiformat operation, with the ability to process simultaneously 3G, HD, SD and analog video, as well as AES and analog audio. The frame provides advanced monitoring and backup capabilities. It can be fitted with 3 RU and 2 RU (using an extender panel) Densité modules. The frame features dual hot-swappable power supplies and fans. The modules for the frame are also hot-swappable. The frame is air-cooled and all modules, redundant PSUs and fans are monitored to provide status via GPI or the Ethernet port. The basic frame configuration includes one PSU and a controller card, which allows card adjustments from the front panel. Front panel multicolor LEDs provide status reporting.

The Densité 3 Mini is a compact, half-rack width (1RU) desktop version of the Densité 3 frame, designed for one or two Densité 3RU/2RU cards. The hot swappable modules for the frame can be configured automatically when a card is replaced. The Densité 3 Mini's housing frame can be controlled by the RCP-200 advanced control panel and the iControl Solo PC-based GUI when an optional Ethernet controller is installed, while a front panel control interface is available for simple adjustments.

Grass Valley's Densité Configurator is a free web-based tool which speeds up the process of selecting the right Densité frame, modules and rears for a specific application. This web tool guides you through the frame selection and population processes, and ensures full compatibility between all the chosen elements for correct operation.

The RCP-10x0 is a series of panels designed for fast and easy remote control of the Densité HRS-1801 routing switchers. The panels are available in multiple sizes, and can control routers with sizes up to 40x4. All the models offer ergonomic control via backlit push-buttons, which can be easily labelled using a legendable strip. Panel configuration is performed using a simple user-friendly web page, hosted in every control panel, and easily accessible from any computer equipped with an Ethernet port. Advanced functionality such as locks and protects are fully supported by the RCP-10x0 panels.

The RCP-200 advanced remote control panel for Densité cards, Kaleido multiviewers and NVISION/third party routers provides a highly intuitive graphical interface. It simplifies video/audio signal processing and control in both single and multi-user environments. The 3RU rack-mounted panel features two large touch screen displays for easy readability and quick adjustments. The left screen is dedicated to device selection and router control while the right screen is reserved for parameter adjustments of the selected device. The high resolution screens and color graphics allow a wide range of information to be displayed simultaneously. Eight rotary controls are assigned to parameters to minimize menu navigation, and provide an ergonomic interface to the user. The panel can be used alongside the iControl monitoring and control system, with synchronized control between the systems, or as a standalone device for direct control of multiple types of devices including Densité cards, multiviewers or routing switchers.
