The 7700TPI VistaLINK® module links third-party equipment and Evertz VistaLINK® Network Management System (NMS). Third-party equipment with fault alarming capabilities via General Purpose Outputs (GPO), serial RS-232/422/485 connection, or Ethernet can communicate fault alarm conditions to the VistaLINK® application software through the 7700TPI to SNMP translator thereby extending fault monitoring capabilities across the broadcast network.
The 7700TPI comes equipped with 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports and 1 10/100 Mb Ethernet port. These ports can also be utilized to communicate and provide remote control to third-party equipment.
The 7700TPI module is also equipped with 8 General Purpose Outputs (GPO) and can be utilized to relay a state level from the VistaLINK® system to connected gear. Configuration changes or additional fault alarming are also possible through this interface.
The 7700TPI module fits conveniently into Evertz's universally installed 7800FR frame and provides a cost-effective and space-efficient third-party interface (TPI) solution.
VistaLINK® offers remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) giving the flexibility to manage operations, including signal monitoring and module configuration from SNMPcapable control systems (Manager or NMS).
