See how this modular product fits in a frame:

With the transition to IP, many facilities operate in a hybrid environment. Ingested content entering the workflow needs to be processed and ready to output to a variety of platforms and formats...which traditionally necessitates separate video processors, gateways, encoders, decoders, transcoders, up/down/cross converters and IPTV encoders. Evertz' 570iTXE offers the flexibility to take anything in and send anything out by providing a single point of entry for all compressed and uncompressed signals, eliminating the need for bulky infrastructure. Therefore, the 570iTXE is the ideal solution for hybrid broadcast facilities and broadcasters looking to transition to IP.

The 570iTXE acts as the front edge of signal/content acquisition. It can create multiple transcoded versions ("tracks") of each signal which can be routed, recorded, edited and played out from downstream products.

The 570iTXE also provides incredible versatility. For example, if low latency is required, the downstream device can use the J2K (or SMPTE ST 2110/ASPEN) or AVCI-100 track if editing is required. Alternatively, if basic in-house monitoring or rough cut editing via an external device is needed, low bitrate H.264 can be used. This offers incredible flexibility for live production workflows.
