The 7890AESM-8-IP is part of the Evertz family of gateway products, which unlock the potential of IP networks for audio transport. The proliferation of carrier-grade IP networks and their associated capacity, flexibility and cost make them an attractive solution for modern audio/video transport networks. Evertz gateway products facilitate the bridge between audio and IP worlds, providing the extensive apability, control & monitoring, resilience and low latency demanded by content creators and transport service providers.

The 7890AESM-8-IP provides eight input ports that transport balanced and unbalanced AES signals over dual Gigabit Ethernet trunks. Forward Error Correction (FEC) can be added to combat packet loss for continuity of audio service. The 7890AESM-8-IP also facilitates connection to redundant IP trunks and provides automatic switching between a pair of IP links.

  • Can add Forward Error Correction to mitigate packet loss
  • Facilitates redundant Ethernet Links for maximum resilience on critical signals
  • Eight AES audio inputs (balanced or unbalanced)
  • SMPTE2022 FEC
  • SFP Gig Ethernet trunk ports allow the use of copper and/or optical connections
  • Low jitter performance
  • Fully hot-swappable from the front of the frame without de-cabling
  • Comprehensive signal and card status monitoring via four digit card edge display or remotely through SNMP and VistaLINK®
  • VistaLINK® capability is available when modules are used with the 7700FC and 3700FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module in slot 1 of the frame
