The EMR is a multi-format modular router that provides a high density solution without compromising functionality. The EMR provides a unified platform for routing digital audio, analog audio, MADI audio, A-LINK audio, data, and time code. The EMR uses a packet routing core that allows for highly dense applications and also provides the flexibility for expansion as demands grow.
A single 6RU frame can accommodate 288x288 AES, 288 data ports, 288x288 time code signals, or a mix of everything in between. Expansion beyond this is as easy as adding another frame. With two 6RU frames, the EMR can accommodate 576x576 AES signals with full redundancy.
The modular design of the EMR means that there are no limitations to the signal formats that can be added to the router, or limitations to the size at which it can be expanded to. Other products that can be combined with the EMR are master control switchers, multi-viewers and more.
The EMR allows any mix of formats within a frame. The inputs and outputs are scalable in blocks of 96 or 48 depending on the format. A system consists of the input stage, the crosspoint, and the output stage. Each input and output device is connected to the crosspoint through a proprietary TDM connection. It is the use of this connection that provides the flexibility for the system to scale and evolve with changing needs.
When combined with MAGNUM, the EMR can be controlled using a wide range of control panels and interfaces. The EMR also provides a SNMP interface to control various configuration options.
Each input and output card in the EMR contains multiple TDM interfaces that allow connections to multiple crosspoints. Each input card provides multiple TDM outputs that can be used for redundant connections, and each output card provides multiple TDM inputs that can be setup to automatically failover if the primary connection fails. The redundancy structure of the EMR minimizes the chances of any failure to the system.
The EMR can be scaled well beyond a single frame. A single crosspoint module can support up to 16 input modules and 16 output modules, allowing a system to scale to 1536 x 1536 AES. For larger requirements, multiple crosspoint modules can be combined to scale even further. There really is no limit to the range of the EMR.
The EMR is a powerful platform that provides many advanced processing features above and beyond basic audio routing. The advanced core allows functions such as gain, phase inversion, muting, and audio delay to be applied to each and every mono channel independently. In addition, each mono channel also has an independent four-by-one mixer that allows the operator to produce mono-mix or 5.1 down-mixing of surround channels. The input modules also provide sample rate conversion capabilities to realign incoming signals to the sample rate of the applied reference.
All of the advance processing capabilities of the EMR are controlled via SNMP using VistaLINK®, providing the operator with incredible flexibility and control.
The EMR provides comprehensive monitoring tools to help alleviate the complexity of today's systems. As a standard feature on all AES and analog modules, there is a unique high definition video output that provides confidence monitoring of all audio signals within a particular input or output module.
The same audio level and peak information is also provided over Ethernet, available to be used by VIP-X and VistaLINK® clients to create custom monitoring solutions that suit the application. This provides even more control over the information that needs to be monitored and managed. Along with the level and peak information, the EMR also provides an abundance of controls and alarms for monitoring the health of the audio system in VistaLINK®.
One very unique aspect of the EMR router is that it is modular in nature. This means there is no physical interface that constrains the locations of the modules within a specific frame or within frames in general. Since this limitation does not exist, it allows the EMR to function in a distributed manner. Input and output cards can be located closer to their sources and destinations to save on cabling and to make management of the system easier. This opens up many possibilities for creating unique and efficient systems.
When combined with the EQX, the EMR provides the ability to route audio universally across various formats. Embedded audio from EQX video sources can be de-embedded and routed to AES, analog, MADI destinations or A-LINK. The system also allows discrete audio sources from AES, analog, MADI or A-LINK to audio embedders on the EQX. This unique system provides maximum flexibility for routing any audio source to any audio destination.
This unique system provides maximum flexibility for routing any audio source to any audio destination and complete shuffling of all audio channels in the system.
