Internet Exchange Gateway

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 7890IXG provides an ideal option for delivering high-quality contribution video over unmanaged IP networks using Evertz' ARQ (Automatic Retransmit Query) or RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) technologies. With the proliferation of greater internet access bandwidth, broadcast professionals have a viable economical alternative to transporting video over higher cost dedicated managed IP links or fiber optics.

The 7890IXG can feature Forward Error Correction (with IXG-FK-FEC feature key) which allows for a seamless error free delivery of audio and video streams over any network that is not optimized for media transport. For streaming security the 7890IXG is capable of AES128 encryption of streams (with IXG-FK-E128 feature key).

In addition to an on-board web interface, the 7890IXG module is VistaLINK® capable, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This offers the flexibility to manage operations, including signal monitoring and module configuration from an SNMP capable NMS.

See the IXG whitepaper: Evertz IXG: The Internet as a Tool for Broadcast (1.1MB).

The 7890IXG is a one slot module that can be housed in the 7800FR or 7800FR-QT frame which have a 15 module slot capacity.
