The Evertz 500FR Compact Distribution Frame is an ideal solution for today's vast digital video distribution requirements.

It handles the high-speed requirements of HDTV as well as Analog and SDTV signals. The frame design allows extraction of modules from the front without compromising performance even at 1.5GB/s. The 500FR Compact Distribution Frame is a 3RU frame designed to house up to 16 single slot modules.

The image above shows 3 of the S501FR standalone Compact High Density Distribution Frames mounted into the S501FR-RP Rackmount panel S501FR

  • Exponent achieves the highest density with 288 BNC outputs (per 6RU)
  • Exponent uses less power supplies thus less points of failure (per 6RU)
  • Exponent provides a direct connection to an SNMP network. Some competitive pseudo SNMP solutions require intermediate application servers or protocol translators which add latency, single point of failure issues, cost, and complexity.
