Product ManualManual

The 7867VIPM series is the latest addition to the Evertz® award winning multiviewer product line. With outstanding image quality, and an industry leading feature set, the 7867VIPM series is a powerful, compact multi-image display processor.

The VIPM series are available in two sizes: eight inputs and 16 inputs, each with up to 2 outputs. The VIPM inputs are auto-sensing composite analog, SD, HD, and 3GB/s (SMPTE 424M). Each VIPM input can be displayed in any size, position or aspect ratio on any display. Both display outputs from the VIPM are provided over DVI and HD-SDI, which are available simultaneously. The VIPM provides the best quality input reproduction, borrowing the latest in video processing technology from Evertz® industry acclaimed conversion products.

The VIPM series is VistaLINK® -enabled offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The VIPM is easily configurable via the web server interface or card edge. Similar to the MVP®, layout creation can be performed in a live control environment using Evertz Maestro™ software. Other key features include automatic aspect ratio adjustment on a source-by-source basis, graticule generation, VITC/HD time code decode, and much more.

The VIPM series are hot-swappable devices, which can be populated in Evertz® widely installed 3RU 7800 multi-frame chassis with an option for redundant power supplies.
