The SCORPION platform with dark fiber and IP capability is a game changer that bridges two prevalent transport technologies. Its flexible architecture is the first of its kind in the industry, with the capability to accommodate traditional dark fiber and IP transport needs. When multiple SCORPION units are combined, the transport platform becomes ultra scalable to define point–to–point, ring, and hub & spoke configurations, enabling the sharing of content from different venues using different transport media.

Features and Benefits

High Density

Possesses a large amount of Fiber/IP connectivity, diversity and modular signal I/O

Flexibility

Handles current dark fiber and IP transport needs

Lightweight and Powerful

1RU form factor with powerful routing capability

Applications

SCORPION is a highly flexible platform that transports the diverse signals types seen in production environments including 12G/3G/HD/SD–SDI video, ASI, DS3, 10/100/1000/10G Ethernet, AES and MADI audio, HDMI, Intercom and Serial Data over dark fiber or IP infrastructures. SMPTE 2022 IP Encapsulation is supported as will be TR–03 and the emerging SMPTE ST 2110–n family of standards.

Network Topology

Diverse interconnection of facilities/venues with different transport media.

  • Multi–Format
    Works with both Square–Division and 2 Sample Interleave (2SI) signal types for maximum flexibility.
  • Simple Integration
    Connect with existing 3G infrastructure equipment and MAGNUM to get your system up and running quickly.
  • Familiar
    Utilizes familiar 3G–SDI interfaces for ease of use.
  • Broad Offerings
    Evertz’ extensive 3G–SDI portfolio can be used with UHD deployments.
